My first trip to a Disney Park was when I was a kid. I was 7 years old, and my sister was 9, our parents got us a place to stay in Fort Wilderness for a week. I remember parts of the trip, and for some reason remember Epcot as being a lot smaller than it actually is. There are very distinct memories from that trip, like making our dad sick on the Tea Cup ride and watching a lady get white washed by a bird at Discovery Cove. My sister and I had the warnings on the mono-rail memorized and probably repeated them so much they drove my parents nuts.
As I got older, I swore I wouldn’t go to Disney again until I had kids of my own.
Fast forward to my thirties, and my love for Disney has only grown and I’ve changed my stance on visiting the parks quite a bit. We can probably blame it on my first trip to Disneyland when I went with the Tomorrowland bloggers trip. I fell in love, and it’s only gotten worse. I set a goal for myself to visit all of the Disney Parks and I’m already half way there!
In the past 10 months I have been to Disneyland Paris, Disneyland (again for the Pirates of the Caribbean Premiere), and just a couple weeks ago I walked back into Walt Disney World and spent two days re-visiting the parks I remember from my childhood, and experiencing brand new things. Over the next couple of weeks – I’m going to share what we found, some tips and some fun things you can do while planning your trip to the parks!
So, 3 parks down – 3 to go! Bring on Shanghai, Tokyo and Hong Kong! It may be a bit of a crazy goal, but it’s one we’re going to meet and share all of it with you!
