When Your Walt Disney World Vacation Feels Official


One could say that as soon as you book your Walt Disney World vacation it becomes official but for me, there are certain things that must happen before it really feels official.

Arriving in Orlando.  This one may seem obvious but the first feeling I get that my vacation has officially begun is when I see signs for Disney’s Magical Express.  I get so excited as I exit the plane and make my way to the motor coach that will deliver me to my happy place.  It’s the first sign of many that my vacation has officially begun.


Taking a Ride on the Monorail.  There was this one trip I took as a kid where we rode the monorail so many times that we had the safety spiel memorized.  That might not seem that impressive to avid WDW fans but as a kid and not having any knowledge of the Spanish language, it felt pretty cool to know that phrase.  Now a trip to Walt Disney World just doesn’t feel official until I hear that beloved safety spiel.  “Please stand clear of the doors. Por favor manténganse alejado de las puertas.”  Music to my ears.


Walking Right Down the Middle of Main Street U.S.A.  No matter how many other parks I have been to on a trip, my trip doesn’t feel official until I see Cinderella Castle.  Visiting that first park in WDW brings back so many memories of childhood vacations.  It just doesn't feel like my vacation has truly started until I step into that park.


That First Attraction.  It doesn’t matter which one it is but once I wait in that first queue and ride that first attraction, my vacation truly feels official.  Most of us try to minimize our time waiting in the standby line but nothing makes my trip feel more official than waiting in line. 


Enjoying a Hot Dog from Casey’s.  There’s something about eating a hot dog in Walt Disney World that just tastes better.  I don’t know why but it just does and I like it.


Fireworks. Lots and Lots of Fireworks.  Whenever I think of Walt Disney World, I think of great fireworks shows.  My family always made it a tradition to see the fireworks at the Magic Kingdom and Epcot so now a trip doesn’t feel official if I don’t keep up with that tradition.


Everyone has that one thing that makes his or her Walt Disney World vacation feel official.  Whether it’s eating a turkey leg in Fantasyland or buying a pair of Mickey ears, it’s those traditions that make each and every trip magical.  What makes your trip to Walt Disney World feel official?

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

Local Vendors We Recommend in Orlando

The hottest trend in the ultimate Disney vacation is utilizing local vendors who are/or used to be Disney Cast Members to enhance your trip.  There are a wide variety of services and products you can get from these wonderful people, so we wanted to highlight a few of our favorites that we have personally utilized and would recommend. Charcuterie: Ordering a charcuterie board for your family or party is a great way to enhance an arrival day when you might be a bit snacky or maybe for a pool day at the resort.  It's the perfect snack to munch on throughout the day and makes you feel just a little bit fancy.   Journey Across the Board This is the charcuterie you order to feel bougie and pampered and really elevate your trip.  Their boards are premium and they can be designed and personalized in so many ways. You can even upgrade to include beautiful keepsakes.  What makes them especially great is the ability to suit so many dietary concerns.  They create any food style or allergy from
