Disney World!

Today Kelly is hosting a "Favorite Vacation Spot" link up for Show us Your Life Friday.  There is no question about our favorite spot - it's Disney World!

We love the beach, but we LIVE here, so it's not a vacation!  It's just stress (did we pack the cooler, remember everything, haul our entire lives over to the shore?), and Disney is MAGIC!

We have stayed on property and off property (we've been 5 times in 6 years), and staying on is our favorite!  We've stayed at Animal Kingdom Lodge and Wilderness Lodge - and WL is the BEST!  We will probably stay at the Art of Animation on our next trip.  6 people probably fit best in a suite!

Our kids have the best times meeting the characters at Magic Kingdom, battling Darth Vader at Hollywood Studios, checking out the safari at Animal Kingdom, and riding Nemo at Epcot!

Rather than rehash everything ONE post, I figured I would link to our trips - LOTS of good tips and fun adventures!

December 2012 - 4 kids - 5,4,2, and 3 months
December 2011 - 3 kids - 4,3 and 1
December 2010 - 3 kids - 3,2, and 1 month
November 2008 - 2 kids - 1 and 3 months
December 2007 - 1 kid - 8 months

I just can't say enough about how much we love it - some of our very favorite moments with our kids have happened at Disney World, and I completely believe in the Disney Magic, even as a grown up!  It breaks see my heart to people hear complain about "having to take the kids to Disney World."  Soak it up - it is an amazing family experience!


  1. I'm so jealous that you live so close! We took Drew when he was about 20 months and it was just heaven. I know a lot of people complain that it's stressful, but if you focus on the magic and how much the kids love it, it's the best trip destination out there!

  2. We try to go every year, last year we checked out Disney California adventure & that was really awesome!
