disney world

Danny and I just returned from our trip to Disney World! It was the first time we have been back since our internship there in 2007. If you haven't read our story before check it out here. We actually met at Walt Disney World in the summer of 2007 - we were both doing college internships there and we lived there for 7 months. It was one of the happiest times of our lives. When we pulled into Lake Buena Vista, Danny actually started tearing up (he would kill me for sharing that! haha). I felt the same way - it was so special to revisit the place that brought us together. We chose to drive from Mississippi instead of fly and it took us 10.5 hours each way. I thought the road trip was super fun and would do it again in a heartbeat. We talked and listened to music and just enjoyed one another's company.

So without further ado, please enjoy some pictures from our little vacation:

We went straight to Epcot when we pulled into the park.

Danny in front of Test Track - this is one of my favorite rides in Epcot.
One of my best friends from the Disney College Program, Obie, still works at the park! I haven't seen him in 3 years and it was SO good seeing him again!
How appropriate are the bride ears since Disney is the reason we are married?
Danny in front of Disney's Hollywood Studios. This is the park we worked at during our college program, however back then it was still called MGM Studios.

In front of the Tower of Terror - that ride is still as scary as ever!

We went back to Epcot to visit all the countries. This is Danny in front of Mexico.
About to watch Illuminations at Epcot - my favorite light show!
Magic Kingdom
The Castle


Look at those crowds! It was crazy.
In front of Thunder Mountain in Adventureland.

Right after riding Mount Everest - it was so fun! I love that ride.

I wanted a pic with Winnie the Pooh so bad last year but it was raining and he never showed up. That was my favorite book/cartoon when I was a kid. I absolutely love Disney.

Growing up in California, I loved going to Disneyland, but I've still never been to Disney World. I do plan on going eventually, but through all the pictures it almost felt like I was there myself. (Almost but not quite!) I love how you met your husband working at Disney World. What an amazing place to fall in love
