I know what you're thinking... wait a second San, you big liar! You've been to Disney several times with Autumn! But believe it or not, November 2017 was our first trip as a family (Myself, Autumn AND Chris!) to Disney World! I have been several times with friends, or with my mom and Autumn, but the last time I went with Chris was in 2010... so this was very exciting for me!
We stayed at Port Orleans Riverside in the Royal Room which was super adorable. They had all the lovely Christmas decorations out at the hotel and at Disney Springs which we could take a boat to! (I loved this option for dinner!!) It was so festive and pretty!
Autumn was now walking which made this trip a new experience for me. We took her to meet the talking Mickey (which I think no longer talks) in Magic Kingdom and she got to experience a lot of sweet and cute moments with Chris. Her favorite BB-8 plush joined along everywhere she went on this trip.
This was Chris’s first time visiting Animal Kingdom and I think it was his favorite park experience out of all of them. We got to meet Flik and Meeko, went to a delicious character meal buffet and Autumn got time with Mickey again, pet some animals at Rafiki’s Planet Watch and saw the new Pandora area!
We also went to Hollywood Studios on our last park day which was super fun... we werent sure what to expect since we hadn’t visited that park since 1997 and it’s going through a lot of construction updates. I really enjoyed seeing all the stuff out for The Last Jedi and Star Wars in general, and Autumn enjoyed the Mickey Mouse clubhouse live show! The “One Man’s dream” exhibit was still out and I was super thrilled to finally see that in person after hearing so much about it. We also saw the upcoming plans for Toy Story land (now finished!) and Galaxy’s Edge and that was super cool.
