Disney World Bucket List – Part 3

We hope you enjoy our 3rd and final video on our Disney Fort Wilderness Christmas RV trip! We enjoyed exploring all around the campground and partaking in the holiday festivities at Disney! We even had time to venture out and take in a little bit of Orlando! We highly recommend the sushi restaurant that was recommended by Trip Adviser if you’re ever in the Orlando area! For my fellow runners, I’d love to hear what company you use for your favorite running gear! As always, don’t forget to like, comment, and subscribe!

Disney World Bucket List – Part 2

Come with us as we set out to finish our Disney Bucket List! We’re staying at the Fort Wilderness Campground on Disney property and heading off to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party! We skipped the conventional park tickets to enjoy the camping lifestyle at Disney and the Christmas Party! We had such a blast and would love to hear about your trips to the campground and Christmas Party! Don’t forget to hit “like” if you enjoyed this video and subscribe for more videos!

Disney World for Christmas

For those of you who follow us on Instagram and/or YouTube probably already know that we’ve been on this fun travel trip for the holidays! Not quite as epic as the one we have planned next month, but a close second. We left the panhandle and headed to Disney World to check off our final two Walt Disney World bucket list items, which were to stay at the Fort Wilderness Campground and attend Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party! We enjoyed an eventful and holiday filled few days! We loved every minute of our trip!

Disney World Bucket List – Part 1

After our Disney World Annual Passes expired, I had two things still on my Disney Bucket list before we expand our travels beyond the state of Florida. Therefore, we had to check them off this Christmas season! The first was staying at the Fort Wilderness Campground and the second was attending the Very Merry Christmas Party! I’ll be writing a blog post in a few days about our campground adventure, so stay tuned! In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this video! Are you following us on Instagram and YouTube?? If not, you should be! 🙂

Disney on a Budget

For those that aren’t aware, a Walt Disney World vacation can cost a small fortune. Some people have referenced it being the same price as a trip to Tahiti or the Bahamas or Europe…you name it. Being the cheap person that I am, (so cheap that I went 10 years without buying trash bags) I have figured out some ways to make Disney cheaper. Here’s an insight into my cheap ways:

Animal Kingdom – Day 2!

Despite the constant rain all day long, we had a wonderful second day at Animal Kingdom! We saw so many animals on our Safaris adventure because it wasn’t very hot, so the animals were out and about. We even got stuck for about 10 minutes and enjoyed listening to the lion roaring for a bit before he retired to  his throne! It was so neat!!

Animal Kingdom!!

I absolutely LOVE Animal Kingdom because it is such a great opportunity to learn about all kinds of animals! This is a homeschool mom’s dream field trip! We had such a great time and could’ve spent many more hours there! We did Kali River Rapids, Flights of Wonder, Lion King, and much, much, more!

Magic Kingdom!!

As I mentioned in my previous post, we always try to visit Magic Kingdom for Day 1. We feel like visiting the castle and Magic Kingdom is the perfect way to start off our Disney World vacation! As you can see we had an absolute blast visiting Tom Sawyer’s Island, watching (not riding) the Thunder Mountain Railroad, walking through the Swiss Family Tree house, and much more! Tom Sawyer’s Island is a great place to burn off a child’s energy, I highly recommend it!

If you aren’t already too tired, I highly recommend staying for the Main Street Electrical Parade! It’s similar to the 3pm parade but all the floats have tons of lights! The fireworks show over the castle is amazing!! I haven’t found a bad seat yet, although the train station is a fan favorite for sure!

Feelin’ Happier Already!

For those of you that don’t know, Duraburb, Inc. just happens to be located in Apopka, Florida. Apopka just so happens to be about an hour from the happiest place on Earth!!! So, of course we had to plan a Walt Disney World vacation in conjunction with our Suburban drop off! Duh! Actually, it was a complete shot in the dark, but totally paid off and appeared planned to perfection!

Since we were dropping off the Suburban, which is obviously our first choice for road trips, we had to fit everything for the trip into the hubby’s car. Yikes! I have a new found respect for those earth friendly Sedan families out there! I also learned why stroller rental companies are so incredibly profitable. Here I thought it was just for families who fly into Orlando, but it’s really for those people who are less crazy than us and want to use their trunk for actual luggage and not a huge jogging stroller! Lesson learned, but we made it fit! Check it out!

All set up with our newest library books! I highly recommend hitting up your local library prior to any road trip! We were stocked with tons of books and audio books! These are a staple for any road trip for us!
