Travel Diary: Travel Day and Disney Day 1

Travel Day: Flying and arriving to the hotel
Early Friday morning we started our day by heading to the airport. Luckily our flight was on time and we arrived in Orlando right on schedule. For the first day we just wandered around. First we checked into our hotel which is Disney's Boardwalk Villas. Then we continued to explore the Contemporary resort (we have stayed there in the past), Port Orleans resort, as well as Downtown Disney. 

Downtown Disney was a mad house! So we didn't end up staying long. But, they had a super cool store called the Marketplace Co-op. The store included a wide variety of little pop-up like shops. I thought it was very well merchandised (the fashion major in me talking) and super cute!

Disney Day 1: Magic Kingdom 
For our first day at the parks we went to Magic Kingdom which is for sure a favorite of mine. Here is a list of my top favorite things to do: 
-Rides: Space Mountain, Big Thunder Railroad, Tea Cups, Buzz Lightyear, and the Monster's Inc. Laugh Floor 
-Food: Dole pineapple frozen treats, popcorn, Be Our Guest restaurant, and Gaston restaurant for cinnamon rolls

My lovely outfit includes my bid day tank, running shorts from Target, Lilly Pulitzer sunglass strap, and Ked sneakers. Unfortunately my tank is super long so you couldn't see my shorts. But, it was a hot day so it ended up working out!

Our first stop in the morning was a character breakfast at the Crystal Palace. I dined on puffed French toast, an egg and cheese omelet, fruit, and bacon. It was all quite yummy! Before breakfast we got into the park early which is when we took pictures in front of the castle without anyone in the background. 

Here are a few shots of the lovely food that I ate later in the day. I snacked on a Mickey Mouse pretzel (always tasty) and we ate at Be Our Guest restaurant for lunch. Be Our Guest is based on Beauty and the Beast and it is so cool inside! For lunch I ate a roast beast (get it?) sandwich, french fries, and a triple chocolate cupcake. 

The castle all lit up! All the Christmas decorations were still up which were so fun to see. You can't beat Disney at Christmas time. 

Be on the lookout for more "Travel Diary" posts on my trip to Disney!
