I went down to Disney World for a 4-day weekend and I just wanted to share some photos I took. It was very hot, but taking a break at the resort in the middle of the day and going to the parks late at night helped. Those of you heading down this summer, don’t forget your hats and sunscreen!
We Stayed at Animal Kingdom Lodge. I love to stay here and I think it’s the most beautifully themed resort on property. Having said that, I don’t love the buses.
Cinderella Castle at night. My eight-year old took this. Not bad for an iPhone, really.
The Main Street Electrical parade replaced Spectromagic (temporarily, at least). The music isn’t as good as Spectro, but the floats are definitely better.
Yes, I’m a Galactic Hero on Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin. Feel free to be in awe.
The crowds weren’t bad. I would say that the only park that was hectic was Hollywood Studios due to Star Wars weekend, but even that was manageable. Standby waits for the newly re-opened Star Tours were around 70 minutes or less.
I love this resort. View of the Grand Floridian taken from the monorail on the way to the Magic Kingdom.
More in a bit. I want to talk about Star Wars Weekends and what can go wrong on the dining plan when you don’t plan as well as you thought!
