This past weekend I went on a super quick (very unexpected) Orlando trip with my sister, my brother-in-law, my nephew James, and or course Danny… and it was so much fun! The best part about it was how spontaneous it was. We decided on Saturday at 12pm that we were going, and by 4pm we were on the road. We like to visit Orlando occasionally because it’s only 4 hours away from home and it’s always a good time.
Being that it was such an out of the blue trip, you can imagine how unprepared I was! Like seriously, didn’t even pack enough underwear and forgot pajamas entirely. Luckily Disney Springs has SO many good stores (The ZARA there is unbelievable). Danny and I got the cutest shirts to wear from a store called Uniqlo. Then we had dinner at Splitsville, and met my sister and brother in law at Wine Bar George for some wine.
The next day (Sunday), we woke up to giraffes right outside our hotel balcony. We stayed at the Animal Kingdom Lodge, which is such a beautiful hotel, I highly recommend it! Then we spent the entire day hoping from park to park (you can watch my IGTV here.) We started at Epcot, where we drank around the world & ate (…alot.) Then went to Magic Kingdom, had the BEST Mac & cheese from Gaston’s Tavern and of course took a picture with a Mickey ice-cream. Next, we went on an African safari at Animal Kingdom, and finally ended the night at Hollywood Studios where we rode (my fav) The Tower of Terror.
The next day (Monday), it was just me & Danny. We spent the day at Universal Studios & Islands of Adventure. It was super chill, and fun. We ate, drank, and rode all the rides we love. The best part about going on a weekday is that the wait times are super low! So we were able to do everything, and still have time to relax and have some beers at Duffs (which is a nice little bar in the Simpsons area of Universal.) Then we ended the night with dinner at CityWalk and donuts from Voodoo Donuts. 😋 P.S. If you go, and see a huge line…don’t get intimidated. It goes by very quick (like 5 minutes) and the donuts are worth it! ….Order a “little pink” for me 🤩
