I don't try to hide it; I'm just a big kid sometimes (as both adults and children tell me lol). I love going to Disney World, I love everything about it from the parking lots to the characters inside...it's all so magical and such a relief from our hum-drum depressing world.
A couple of my girl friends and I had planned a girls trip to Disney for this spring. We all needed a little escape, one without kids or husbands or anything but us and Disney, and more than just a day trip. So this past week we got a room at Disney's All-Star Music Resort for 3 nights! I love staying on property at Disney, it just removes the last little bit of the world's stress by us not having to drive anywhere...just take the bus...what more do you need! So 4 days, 3 nights on property at Disney World; 2 full days at the parks, all 4 parks, plus several very special events, Downtown Disney and a drive through Celebration, FL with two of my best friends! What an amazing week!
On top of just being able to go to the parks, my friend Alice not only planned the whole trip she also paid for us all to attend the Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dinner Party at the Magic Kingdom and the Supercalifragilistic Character Breakfast at Disney's Grand Floridain Resort and Spa! Two events that none of us had ever done before, and let me tell you they were both unbelievably magical!
Well now, enough talking, here are a few pictures from our trip!

Man what a great trip! Of course I was totally dead by the end of it...my legs haven't hurt that much in a long time. I finally had a day to recoup today, and as much as I didn't want our time at Disney to end I am glad to be getting things back to normal after such a long month.
...I'm already planning my next trip though ;) I can't wait to go back!
