Last week I enjoyed four glorious days at the house of mouse, Walt Disney World. I met my fabulous fellow ZGirls for a mother/daughter getaway and boy did we have fun!
We stayed at the beautiful Animal Kingdom Lodge, in a savannah view room. This was amazing as the animals came right to our balcony numerous times throughout the day. It felt like they were there just for you!
The room itself was nice, but you are definitely paying for the access to the animals here and it was well worth it! Dining at Anima Kingdom Lodge is good. We mostly used our dining plan at the Mara for quick service and were really happy with the selection and quality. The pool was also very nice- even in the rain! If you have kids, you would love this experience.
One thing about Orlando- it’s HOT! This Vegas girl can handle the heat, but the HUMIDITY- yikes! I have not been that sweaty in I don’t know how long. We braved it and figured we be hot messes (literally) for the time we were there. Permanent hat hair was the norm, as was being slathered in massive amounts of sunscreen.
The parks at Disney World are just beautiful. So much bigger that Disneyland and never feel crowded. We had gotten Fast Passes with the help of our awesome travel agent, Jenn. One Fast Pass we were unable to get was for Slinky Dog Dash in Toy Story Land. We hightailed it first thing one of the mornings and since we are professional at bobbing and weaving through the strollers we were able to ride with only a 30 minute wait. Our verdict: great ride! Toy Story Land is super- so well done with all the classic toys from our childhoods represented. It will make you happy just walking through it. Elizabeth especially liked the seats made out of Babybel cheese!
We had access to all our photos and the funniest one we thought we got was this one:
We were on the Dinosaur ride. Elizabeth and I do NOT like T Rex- Sarah much less phased. But the guy in front of me…. he’s just smiling at the giant T Rex- we laughed and laughed at this one.
There’s much more to share about Disney World.
