If you’ve been to Disney World, then you know the type of magic I am talking about when I say Disney Magic. I have been experiencing Disney magic since I was a sassy little five-year-old. My parents took my sister and I for our first visit as a Christmas gift. I still remember that trip and cherish those memories. I can remember meeting Minnie, and driving around in our rental car. I remember the way the hotel room smelled when we walked in.
When I met Mr. Lucky in college, he had never been to Disney World. I first introduced him about a year into our relationship. Since then, we have been Passholders for many of our years together, and together we have brought our Lucky Charm to know and love Disney. Her first visit was when she was six weeks old. She loved all of the smells, sights and sounds. Today, she asks to go to Disney at LEAST once a day.
We decided to take her to Disney World for her third birthday in lieu of a traditional birthday party. We are staying at Disney’s Pop Century Resort for three nights. I am hoping to get checked in, and let Lucky Charm and daddy walk around the resort or go to the pool for a bit while I decorate our hotel room for her birthday. I am going to have mickey confetti for the front window, and a string of lights, some balloons, a birthday banner, and some princess decorations.
The night we arrive, we are scheduled for dinner at the Grand Floridian’s 1900 Park Fare. Dinner is with Cinderella, the Prince, the wicked Stepmother, and Anastasia and Drizella.
The next morning we are scheduled to go to Hollywood Studios. We are starting the day with a breakfast with the Disney Jr. cast at Hollywood and Vine. She will get to visit with the Little Einstein’s cast, Jake, Special Agent Oso and Handy Manny. We haven’t decided if we will spend the rest of the day at Hollywood Studios or if we will leave late afternoon and spend the remainder of the day at Typhoon Lagoon water park.
Lucky Charm has been begging to go to Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique since it first opened. The age requirements are 3 years old, in fact when I called to make the reservation – I tried to make it for the day before she turned 3 and they refused to allow her until she was actually 3. We decided we would allow her to get a princess makeover ON her birthday and take her to a special dinner. Our original plans included dinner in Cinderella’s castle. There were no open reservations for the castle during our trip, so we have settled on a princess lunch at Akershus in Norway at Epcot. Here she will get to interact with several princesses, and it includes a photo package as well. We will likely spend a few hours at Epcot following lunch and then head to Magic Kingdom to finish off the day.
We are hoping for an amazing trip, with lots of Disney Magic for our little princess. We waited and prayed to be parents for so long, and we treasure Lucky Charm, and her birthmom Tiny for helping to complete our family. I am hoping to do a review of the different places we visit and eat at Disney and provide some feedback of how they work with bariatric patients when we return.
How do YOU celebrate at Disney?
