I am back from our week in Disney and now feel like I need a vacation. It is so true when they say you need a vacation after your vacation especially one where it is "go, go, go" for 16 hours each day with a three year old. We truly had a blast but it was exhausting.
It was good for me to get away for a week to try and forget my new reality although at moments I had my mini meltdowns. We went to Disney with my parents when I was younger and a few things triggered memories that made me sad. I think I cried during the whole "It's A Small World" ride remembering that it was my mom's favorite ride. And normally I would have been calling my mom each night to tell her about our day and knowing she wasn't there to call hurt.
Don't get me wrong, overall I had a fabulous time but I guess you can't ever truly escape a pain so deep. But it was good to be carefree and see how excited my daughter was to meet all the characters and go on all the rides. It was nice to have some family time, just the three of us.
I feel like I have so much to tell you guys about the trip and learned some great tips about traveling to Disney that I don't know where to begin. I was trying to figure out if it would be best to do a post about each day we had there or just do a looooong post about the whole trip. I decided that over the next week or so I am going to be sharing about certain aspects of our trip and go into detail about each specific thing. So be on the lookout for posts about The Art of Animation Resort, The Disney Memory Maker, Flying JetBlue, The people of Disney and some things I find strange about Disney. I am very excited to go into detail about all of the above and hope to to help out anyone who may be planning a trip to Disney World any time soon. xoxo
