Walt Disney World

Celebrating

Where does a 26 year old celebrate her birthday?

At the happiest place on earth, of course! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Confession: I only wanted to celebrate my birthday at Disney, so I could get a button.

There. You caught me.

And I plan to wear it all weekend. Take that. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Birthdays were meant to be celebrated at Disney World! I felt like a little kid when we stepped off the monorail for the first time and I began bouncing up and down squealing ‘It’s my Birthday! It’s my Birthday’. There’s something magical about the parks that brings out the little kid in all of us.

My Sister and I spent the day enjoying the cooler weather and light crowds at Magic Kingdom. We stuck to the Fantasyland area and rode rides I haven’t been on in years like Peter Pan, Winnie the Pooh and Snow White. It was exactly what I wanted for my birthday.

We broke for lunch at the Lighthouse Cafe and were pleasantly surprised to find Vegetarian Chili as the Soup of The Day

The chili was really tasty. I loved that it was nice and thick and full of vegetables and beans.

We also split an order of fries between us.

Pleas note that I always have tea bags on hand for cold days like these.

Putting the word ‘birthday’ before everything just makes it seem that much more special right? ๐Ÿ˜‰

I already have some ideas on how we can approve on upcoming episodes (such as me actually looking at the camera when interviewing and less talking with my hands ๐Ÿ˜‰ )
