I escaped from the brutal winter up north to the happy sunny south last weekend and today I will be sharing some photos of what I did in Orlando. It was my first time on PTO (only took two days) and it just felt awesome to get paid for having fun haha. Anyone who uses their paid time off will understand this : ) If you want to check out my outfit details from this trip, click here.
Day one was kind of a chill day, because we were waiting for other people to fly in. My friends and I went to Disney Springs, which used to be called Downtown Disney, to shop, walk around, soak in the sunshine, and prep ourselves for Disney World. The Disney art gallery was probably my favorite, because it showcased beautiful moments from Disney films and other creative pieces. My friend, a Florida-native, suggested that I get the Mickey cake pop because it’s the most amazing cake pop ever, so I got a red velvet cake pop covered in chocolate. It was definitely very tasty, and it was shaped like Mickey!
Honestly you can’t spend an entire day at Disney Springs, it’s more like a three-hour thing, so we went back to the hotel to relax and take pictures at the pool.
Once the sun started to set, we ubered to Universal Citywalk, which is the area before the actual Universal parks. There are a lot of restaurants, bars, shops, and even a movie theater! We went to Vivo for Italian and THE BREAD WAS SO DELICIOUS! I’m a sucker for bread oops.
Day two was Magic Kingdom! The most magical place in the world! If you love crazy rollercoaster rides like I do, these rides will probably be a little underwhelming for you, because they are made for kids. However, I love that every Disney ride has a story behind it and that is really what you’re going there for.

Ohyeah, I met the kids of Fuller House! I am obsessed with that show and was so excited to see them at the park! If you haven’t watched it, go watch it on Netflix!!
If you didn’t take a picture with Cinderella’s castle, did you really go to Magic Kingdom? It ended up raining for a bit that day, but it didn’t ruin the adventure!
The two shows are night are a must see – both of them have fireworks. I’m pretty proud of myself for capturing these moments of the show haha.
Day three was my last full day in Orlando, and we went to Epcot! I went to Disney World two years ago, but have never been to this park specifically, so I was really excited. I got to meet Baymax, Joy, Sadness, Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, and more!
A big portion of Epcot is around a lake, where there are bits and pieces of different countries’ architecture, food, and more. It didn’t really feel like I was in Disney, because the only Disney-related things there are the princesses to take pictures with. We spent the rest of the day eating Disney street food (gotta get the funnel cakes!).
And that’s a wrap! I hope you enjoyed my photos from this trip, and be on the lookout for more travel posts. One of my new year’s resolutions is to travel more, and so far it’s going well! In the comments below, let me know which Disney character is your favorite! Thanks for stopping by : )
To Sandy and Nadia: thanks for tolerating my love for taking pictures <3
