The Happiest Place on Earth

Another “first” to mark off my list.

Go to Disney World ~ Check!

It’s just one of those things you have to experience in your life – “the Happiest Place on Earth.”  Even though I wasn’t really looking forward to going, once I was there for the first time ever it was like I was 10 years old instead of 23.  All of a sudden, I wanted to wear Minnie ears and skip around singing Zippity-Do-Dah.  In fact, Ryan and I did buy the bride & groom Mickey and Minnie ears.  I couldn’t resist!

I don’t like theme parks because I don’t like the sensation of rides spinning, dropping, speeding, or tossing me around.  However, even I was able to participate in a lot of the rides at Magic Kingdom.  Of course, I left Space Mountain to Ryan.  The Pirates ride was thrilling enough for me!  (I admit that I screamed at the teeny tiny drop.)

One of the best parts wasn’t even the rides, but the fireworks and electrical parade after dark.  As cheesy as it is, it was truly magical.  Oh and right before we left, we got to meet Mickey Mouse.  At that point, Ryan was Disney-ed out, but he had no choice but to go along with it anyway.  Poor guy.

My advice?  Wear comfortable shoes, sunscreen, and stay for the nighttime activities.  Oh and it was hot at the end of April, so I can’t imagine going in the summer.

Here’s a little video we made to document our day. To see more photos, go to our post at Two Are Better.
