Belle Takes Orlando

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

The cold weather is FINALLY breaking in Pittsburgh and I’m sure all of you couldn’t be happier, as am I! The only thing on my mind are Pirates games, bike rides on the trails and being able to commute to work/school without wearing 3 bundles of layers. I just returned from my last college spring break in the sunshine state of Florida. My family and I went on our very first trip to Disney World/Universal Studios in Orlando! I’ve never gone on spring break before, let alone can even remember the last time I took a break from life for an entire week straight. As a first time visitor, I had very high expectations of the Disney experience from hearing friends reviews and the magical atmosphere and I’m happy to report I had SO MUCH FUN!!!!!!!!! Now that I look back it’s almost laughable that this was a “vacation” of some sorts considering I woke up every single day at 6 a.m. and walked just about 10 miles around a theme park. None the less, I got to spend 6 days with my family in the sun pretending we were wizards and princesses.

Day Three // Epcot

Eat: Teppan Edo

Ride: Test Track

Tip: Download the MyDisneyExperience App! It is EXTREMELY helpful. It has maps, dining, character meets, fast pass, etc. We could not have survived or got to do as many fun things as we did if we didn’t have it all at our finger tips!
