Our first ever Magic moment or “pixie dust” was back in December of 2021 when we decided to book a night in Disney and have a little escape before the holiday. Mark booked one night at Art of Animation and we just chose the cheapest option available. When we arrived to check in they had upgraded us to a Lion King Family Suite at no charge! It’s like they definitely knew their clientele, right?!?
SPOILER ALERT – Journey of Water Inspired by Moana Preview. You can avoid this post if you want to see it for yourself in person – otherwise, you can enjoy photos and a quick walkthrough video of the new area at Epcot.
Is it worth adding the Photopass to your Disney trip or annual pass? I’ll let the photos from the last 8 years of being Walt Disney World Passholders speak for themselves…
Epcot has some of the most beautiful, flavorful and inspiring festivals in the world – pun intended! We’ve already shared how much we love the Festival of the Arts at Epcot, but another festival we try not to miss is the International Flower and Garden Festival.By far one of my favorite events to walk the entire park taking photos while eating and drinking around the World Showcase! Check out my photos from the 2023 event!
My annual Birthday tradition of a trip to Walt Disney World is still going strong, and our 7th year in a row was epic! This was our very first time staying at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort and it won’t be our last because we are in love!
Sometimes people ask us- “why do you love Disney so much, isn’t it just for kids?” You definitely don’t need children to enjoy the wonders of Walt Disney World- especially with festivals, food, and drinks like this!! Adulting at Disney is our favorite kind of adulting- and one of our most favorite times to go is during the Epcot International Festival of Arts! Definitely in our top favorites of the Epcot festivals!
Big Announcement and I can’t believe I’m saying this out loud….
In May of 2022, after being Annual Passholders for over 5 years, we finally scored our first ever passholder preview for a brand-new ride!!! Guardians of the Galaxy- Cosmic Rewind at Walt Disney World’s Epcot! It was incredible and definitely now my favorite ride at Disney! It’s now officially open to the public and absolutely worth the Lightning Lane!
Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary is an 18-month celebration—which kicked off October 1, 2021, and features Golden character statues in each of the four Disney parks. It was so fun and satisfying to find and take photos of each of them over a couple of visits during the celebration! Yay for being annual pass holders and for park hopping!
I can’t let another day pass by without finally sharing (and bragging) about Mark’s first full marathon and our first ever Disney Marathon weekend – he did incredible and it was fantastic!
