disney trip: magic kingdom

7.22.2014

magic kingdom #disney // goodheart blog The second part of my Disney adventure! We spent a day and a half at Magic Kingdom. I didn't take too many pictures, it was just so hot and packed to take out my camera very often, of course I did get some shots of Cinderella's castle. I felt I enjoyed this park much more as a kid. However, for the rides we could have planned it better. If you have the magic bands and sign up for fastpass+, realize that there is a certain time (a one hour window) where you can go on the ride. We didn't realize that at first, and passed up on a ride because we needed to wait 3 hours. Oops!

I was really excited to see the new parts of the park, namely in Fantasyland. They definitely did such a nice job, but I was kind of sad that the part that was from Tangled was just for bathrooms. Sad day my friends, since that movie is one of my favorites. The Be Our Guest restaurant and The Seven Dwarfs ride were extremely popular, definitely try to reserve and get your fastpass+ ahead of time.

Overall, it was nice to go back. Got to see all the new things and remember my trip from before. I would love to go back, but not during the last weekend in June.

Have you been to Magic Kingdom? What's your favorite part?

disney trip: animal kingdom

7.09.2014

tree of life #disney // goodheart blog As promised, my Disney trip! The day we arrived we spent the afternoon at Animal Kingdom. The last time I went to Disney World (18 years ago! Whoa!), this park didn't even exist yet. I really enjoyed it, it's like going to the zoo but on steroids. While we didn't spend all day here, I definitely could have. We spent the majority of our time in the Africa section and went on a mini safari! Really fun and interesting.

So that hippo up there had the right idea, cause it was HOT! If you can just avoid Florida in the summer months, do it. On this mini safari, the animals were up close and personal. Like that one zebra, literally so close you could touch it! If you make it to Animal Kingdom, go on the safari. It's cool.

Overall, my Animal Kingdom experience was great! I'll have to spend a full day there next time.

Have you been to Animal Kingdom?

Next up, Magic Kingdom. I'll have three other posts on my trip (sooo many photos), one for each park I went to. Stay tuned.

- Berry Lemonade Popsicles! Yum! If you don't feel like making some, you can always get some Bomb Pops. Patriotic and tasty. 

- This DIY Push Pop Confetti is the coolest. Great for any holiday!

- Supposedly, there's nothing more American than pie. Learning how to make a pie has been on my to-do list for a long time now and this strawberry one sounds delicious.

- If you're looking for a cocktail, these Bomb Pop shots are almost too pretty to drink.

Hope all of you have a wonderful and safe holiday weekend!
