Graduation? No, though I guess that's pretty important, since it means I'll be thrown out into the real world.
Seeing my family again? No- a little longer until my cousins come to visit, and I see my parents almost weekly.
Well then what could it possibly be?
Ok, I'll tell you- 133 days until I'm in Disney World!
I don't think I can properly express my excitement to you- no, seriously. I haven't been this excited over something in a very long time. You think I get excited over a new eye shadow palette, or Disney Vault Release Day? Multiply that by a hundred, no a thousand, and you might be getting there!
To celebrate graduating from college, my best friend and I are heading to Walt Disney World in June. I haven't been to Disney since I was 7 or 8. I don't remember which exactly. I do, however, remember going. We went three times, all very close in a row. I look through our Disney photo albums every once in a while when I want to feel some magic. But now? Now, I'm going to be able to create my own photo album in 133 days!!
Over the weekend I booked our dining reservations. They aren't set in stone, because my best friend, Kelsi, hasn't chimed in on all of them yet, but we needed to get something down while slots are still open. I think the most exciting reservation we have is at Be Our Guest. I got the last reservation available for our week when I was booking- 9:15pm the Saturday before we leave. A bit late, but guess what? I'm eating in Belle and Beast's castle! AAAGGHHH!!
As you may or may not have figured out by that, Belle is my favorite princess, and Beauty and the Beast is my favorite Disney movie. Eating at Be Our Guest was at the top of my list for our trip. I am beyond excited to see part of my favorite movie come to life before my eyes- the pictures I've seen are phenomenal, and the fact that I'm going to be there, in person, to eat? I can hardly believe it! I'm also quite excited to try the Master's Cupcake- as Lumiere says, "Try the grey stuff, it's delicious! Don't believe me? Ask the dishes!" Oh, believe me, I shall! Try the grey stuff, that is. I think I trust you enough to pass on asking the dishes. I've been dying for a taste since I saw the grey stuff was available at Be Our Guest, and in June, I'll get to taste it!
As of right now, we have two days planned in Magic Kingdom, one in Hollywood Studios, one in Epcot, and one in Animal Kingdom. For dinner we'll eat in Magic Kingdom twice, in Epcot twice, and once in Hollywood studios. We haven't made plans for our arrival day, because we haven't booked flights yet.
My must-do ride is Splash Mountain- I remember on one family trip, we got to the park right at rope drop. We literally rode splash mountain 4 or 5 times in a row. One time the CM even let us stay in the log because there was no one else in line! It was wonderful! And it quickly became my favorite ride.
We'll be staying on property, so we'll be getting MagicBands, and will have access to FastPass+. Splash Mountain is one of the rides I'm hoping to snag for one of our fast passes. I'm not sure how it'll go exactly, because we've obviously never used FastPass+ before. Another friend just used it and said booking what she wanted was fairly easy. We won't be able to play around with that until we book our hotel and get our tickets, though, and we're waiting to do that until a little closer til go time.
Well, that's all for now,
