With a business trip and Shawn's bday ahead of us, we knew that we wanted to have a small getaway where we could eat some good food and lay by the pool. We've also always talked about visiting Disney World together, so we said, what the heck, let's just go to Orlando! We knew the weather would be warm and we'd be able to get into some fun things that we didn't get to do on our last visit to Orlando. Also, staying in Florida put us in a good location for our next travels. Cant wait to share those soon!
We stayed at the most beautiful resort ever! The Sheraton Vistana Village was paradise. Many times I felt as if we were on an island somewhere and not in central Florida. The resort had so many great amenities. My personal favorite was the pool. I'm a huge water person and take full advantage of it every chance that I get.
Disney Springs (formally known as Downtown Disney) literally has everything you could ask for. Great restaurants, shopping, an AMC Theater, and a bowling alley just to name a few things. We even jumped on a hot air balloon for a quick view. We also met up with a friend and had an amazing lunch at Gloria Estefan's "Bongos Cuban Cafe". The food was so comforting and delicious!
This time around, we made sure to get out to the parks. We went to Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and of course Magic Kingdom to watch the light show + fireworks at the castle. It was magical. I'm always overwhelmed with childhood memories. To get really into it, I was sure to grab some Minnie Mouse ears to wear. It was only right. Be sure to check out the Vlog above the rides we got on!
Be sure to check out the video above to see food, rides, and so much more of our our trip. Going forward, I decided that for all trips I will start vlogging to bring more video footage to the site. Not only will this help capture every moment better, I also think it makes it more fun for all of you to see the action! Let me know in the comments if you would like to see more vlogs.
