My trip to Disneyworld!

I hadn't been to Disneyworld since I was 16, so earlier this year, my husband suggested we go (he really is a saint for trekking along!).  We broke it up into 2 trips (he got us 5-day park hopper passes from an area military base)...did Magic Kingdom in February and last week, we went back to visit Epcot and Animal Kingdom.  

Epcot was AWESOME! We did the rides "Mission: Space" and "Spaceship Earth"...and of course, I HAD to ride "Frozen Ever After" (in case you don't know, I became obsessed with that movie back in the day...I even put up a "Frozen"-themed Christmas tree every year!)...and I WILL admit at one point during the ride, when Elsa appeared, I got a little choked up! Then I just sang "Let It Go" at the top of my lungs! 

At Animal Kingdom, we were lucky enough to get on "Avatar: Flight Of Passage"...and words can't even describe how breathtaking that ride is! You soar on the back of a banshee, it's just incredible! We also did the "Expedition Everest" coaster, which was fun and saw the "UP!" bird show...I LOVED that as well, and when a bald eagle came out on stage, I got the goosies! And the "Kilimanjaro Safari" was neat! It was really cool seeing all the wildlife up close and personal! 

But here's the thing...a Disney trip ain't cheap. We stayed at the cheapest "resort" (the "All Star" ones are the most affordable)...but there's only one food court and not alot of options SO...we decided to Uber to a nearby grocery store to pick up some things...and that saved us ALOT of money.  

Another tip if you ever go: the MyDisneyExperience app is a MUST.  60 days out from your trip, you can get a FastPass for 3 rides per park per day.  The FastPass lets you bypass the very long lines and in most cases, you stand in line for only a few minutes. You can also make dining reservations, find out wait times for rides and so much more! 

I am in NO way a Disney expert but wanted to pass those 2 pieces of advice along...oh, and share some pics from our trip.
