It is Spring Break in Georgia. Usually we just hang out at home and do some Staycation activities (movies, aquarium, zoo, downtown stuff, etc…). Occasionally we get to go on a vacation as a family. A couple of years ago, we went to Washington D.C. and had a blast! This year, we were supposed to go on a cruise, but that wasn’t in the cards (thanks, Royal Caribbean #firstworldproblems).

Instead, we decided to go to Disney! They first time we went was 8 years ago for Lizzie’s Make A Wish trip. Then we went 5 years ago, because we knew it would be the last time we could go with Lizzie. This year we went to the main 3 parks and rode almost every single ride- except Pandora in Animal Kingdom, because the girls were not interested in standing in an almost 3 hour line for something they didn’t know about. If we had a fast pass maybe, but no…

Our first stop was Give Kids the World. We stayed there on Lizzie’s Make a Wish trip. It was so special and moving. It has been built up so much since the last time we had been. New rides and growth for families. We even got to walk by the cottage we stayed in. They gave us free lunch and ice cream 😉

Next stop… Embassy Suites right outside the parks. Thanks to the hubby’s job, we have lots of points and perks staying here. I am sure that staying inside the park is magical, but this hotel was amazing! Amazing pool, kids corner (Wii, Nintendo, art,  games, free cotton candy, etc), free breakfast, free happy hour, cheap pizza and ice cream all day and night, Disney movies streaming all day and night, plus basketball for the fans…img_5480img_5483img_5274

Next stop… Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Animal Kingdom
