Disneyworld Thanksgiving 2016

It's been over a month since we took our first Irvin Family vacation to Walt Disney World, and each time I begin to sit down and finish up this blog post I seem to get interrupted or something comes up causing me to step away from the computer. This won't be a post of a lot of words, but mostly photographs. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words!

We decided to stay at the All-Star Movies Resort (on property) since Noahh has been unusually fascinated with Toy Story lately. We just KNEW she would be delighted to see her favorite characters throughout the hotel. We even requested to stay close to the giant Woody and Buzz, which Disney gladly obliged. 

The resort was remarkable, and the PERFECT fit for our first family vacation to Disney. We fell in love with every detail...big and small. 

The food at the resort was amazing too! Noahh treated herself to a Mickey cupcake as soon as we arrived to the food court.


We're here! My sweet loved ones standing just inside the Magic Kingdom. 



The kids loved the Treehouse!


Treats and rides. Pure M-A-G-I-C! Our first ride? Splash Mountain! Noahh loved it.

 
We even got Noahh on Big Thunder, however afterwards she started saying she preferred the "slow rides, not the fast ones"...


We were able to spend 3 whole days inside the Magic Kingdom! Each night we watched the good-night kiss at the Castle, enjoyed the light shows and parades.




We ate so much ridiculously good food. I introduced Erick to "Dole Whip's", and we even got to try out some new places like the Skipper Canteen. Erick ordered an entire LION FISH! 

Gotta get those Mickey pretzels! ...and Ariel's Grotto. This was my first time being able to experience this ride and it's surely one of my favorite! 

If you could only eat ONE TREAT in WDW, I'd highly suggest heading over to Gaston's Tavern for those cinnamon rolls. Holy. Moly. Good. I think we got one each day of our trip! 


I could sit and look at this ALL DAY, couldn't you?



We were blessed with the most fantastic weather during our trip. It didn't even rain once. Plus, because it's November, it was relatively cool. You know, 85 degrees or so...


Erick surprised me with a new diamond ring for our anniversary too while we were watching the parade on our second day. Look on Mickey's sorcerer hat! Beautiful! I am the luckiest...


Our last night in the Magic Kingdom was extra special. We had booked months in advance, dinner reservations with the princesses in Cinderella's Castle. We were able to dine, watch the fireworks up close, and meet all of our favorite princesses. Memories that will last a lifetime!



Seriously, the best way to end a trip to the Magic Kingdom. Just make sure you book this early! Spots are extremely limited and very hard to get. 


Our last day at WDW was spend at Disney's Animal Kingdom! 

It had been a while since I had been to this park, and I'm actually really looking forward to going back and doing some serious exploring. One day, wasn't enough!  Those nachos by the way, were seriously so delicious. 



Well, after spending 4 days/5 nights inside Walt Disney World, we decided to become annual pass holders so we could visit more often with all of the perks that pass holders get to enjoy. We're going back in less than three weeks. Trip is already booked!
