So what is this exciting news? I’m going to Disney World! April 30th I leave New Jersey for a 10 day, jam packed trip to one of my favorite places with some of my favorite people. I’ve never stayed this long so I can hardly wait to start our adventures and hopefully actually have some time to relax for a change. In my next few blogs I’ll discuss our plans for the trip and hopefully provide some advice to help you plan your own WDW excursion.
Well, first of all let me introduce you to the crew on this adventure. First of all there’s me, of course. I tend to travel with fellow Disney geeks and this trip is no exception. Then we have Julie, my fellow Unofficial Guide researcher and dear, dear friend. Julie’s from North Carolina and I’ve been taking all of my WDW trips with her since we met on the 2006 UG research trip. And last, but not least there’s Tom who travels across the pond from the UK to tour with two crazy Americans. Since we’ll be attending some festivities to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Disney’s Hollywood Studios we’ll get to see several of our other Disney dork friends too!
We have tons of activities planned for those 10 days most of which will probably featured in my blog over the next several months. I’m particularly excited that we’re going to hit both of the water parks since I’ve never been to either of them. We’ll be checking out as many night time hot spots we can and, of course, eating in several restaurants including Sanaa which is opening at Animal Kingdom Lodge while we’re there. In the name of research we’ll be drinking around the world at Epcot’s World Showcase split into two days (my post-college 5’1” body can’t handle it all in one shot). These are just a few examples of all of the fun things we have planned!
Next week I’ll give a 20-something perspective to picking a WDW resort and let you know where we’ll be staying this time….
