Cinderella's Castle

Sorry for the lack of posts... As you know, I started a new job so I have been working M-W-Th-Fri and going to class all day on Tu. I have been getting used to my new schedule, exhausting as it is.

I'm currently blogging from our hotel room in Florida! Steve and I were invited to his co-worker's wedding in Orlando so we decided to make a trip out of it. We've been here since Wednesday and leave early tomorrow morning :(

The last time I was at Disney World was when I was in 7th grade... I have been wanting to come back for a looooong time now! The last time I was there, I barely went on any rides being that I am a terrified of all things scary and loud and that I am so not a thrill seeker. This time, I was determined to do much much more.

We stayed at the Doubletree Resort in Orlando on I-Drive. We got the rate of $49/night on Hotwire.com. Our room was awesome and it was right in the middle of all the places we wanted to see and go.
free, warm cookies from our hotel's front desk!

Highlights of our trip:
-Riding my first roller coaster, ever.
this is me right after getting off of Thunder Mountain... my legs are still shaking

-Going through the Haunted Mansion with my eyes open (lol)
-Mickey Mouse ice cream
-Epcot International Food & Wine Festival
-John & Kelly's wedding at the Hard Rock Cafe
-Walking/driving through Celebration
-Waffle House, Maggiano's, Sweet Tomatoes, Oishi Sushi
...more pictures to come!

  1. I'm enjoying reading about your Disney experience, especially the food. ;) The chocolate chip cookies at Doubletree are insanely good, as I recall.
