I got the window seat on the plane. (Yay!)
We stayed at the All Star Music Resort on the Disney World property and it... was.... amazing! Everything was truly larger than life. Giant guitars, jukeboxes, drum kits, even bolo ties and cowboy boots. I absolutely loooooovvedd it.
They had maracas and birds next to the main pool. When we took a quick break from the park I swam in a pool that was shaped like a piano while Derek took a nap. I thought that the all star resorts might be more packed with small children running and screaming but the pool and common areas were actual very calm and pleasant.
The main building and pool area had tons of games and activities throughout the day. Everything from Disney pictionary to outdoor movie night.
We asked a really nice family to take our picture in front of Cinderella's Castle. The mom took extra care in making sure we were perfectly centered. Thanks someone else's mom!!
Waiting in line for small world. We were overdue for a break at this point. I would recommend getting a fast pass whenever you can. You need to plan ahead and get there early for Toy Story Mania, Soarin, and Test Track. Best bet is also get a fast pass later in the day for Peter Pan, Jungle Cruise, Space Mountain, Tower of Terror, and Rockin Roller Coaster. We could have lived without the Buzz Light year ride and Stitch's Great Escape. Our personal faves were Pirate's of the Caribbean, Toy Story Mania, Kilimanjaro Safari, and the light show projected from multiple angles onto the castle.
Japan in Epcot! We split the California roll for a snack and a break.
Ice cream date in front of Cinderella's Castle! I absolutely love the yellow tables, chairs, and matching umbrellas. Super retro.
Thanks for letting me share our magical Disney adventures with ya!! I can't wait to go back!
