Brandcation: Day at Disney World


The final day of Brandcation we were so lucky to be given a one day park hopper pass to Walt Disney World - which right now is all decked out for the holidays! Now you all know that I was extremely excited to show the ladies I was with all the fantastic places in Disney!

Lisa and I started out at the Magic Kingdom and had such a wonderful time visiting some of the best places. Then we bumped right into the character that Lisa really wanted to have her photo taken with... Goofy, who couldn't have been more gracious.  That is one of my favorite things about Disney, every one of the characters goes out of their way to make sure that each guest has a spectacular time, no matter what age.



Lisa and I hung out around the park seeing other attractions and taking photos and acting like little kids... we had SO much fun, it was AWESOME!!! We even ran into Trisha and Kim and the girls that were with them, all of whom also looked like little kids having a blast!


After we finished playing at the Magic Kingdom, Lisa and I met Jessica Benton, Lynsey Jones and her cousin at EPCOT for the Food and Wine Festival, for more fun, food, drink and of course photos.


What an absolutely fabulous time we had - and you all know that I will be going back to Disney World, with and without friends and family, HaHa!!  Thank you so much to Leanne Jakubowski at Walt Disney World for providing the park tickets to us, it was really a magical experience!!

***There is one more thing that I have to mention... Thank you very much to Lisa who pushed my butt in the wheelchair 13 miles (we know this as Lisa wears a pedometer) around Disney World all day long and never complained once.  THAT is a true friend, I love you Lisa and cannot wait to see you again!***

{Disclosure: Again, although the park ticket was provided at no charge to me as part of the Brandcation adventure, all opinions expressed in this post are mine alone - as anyone who reads my blog regularly can attest to - I LOVE DISNEY!! It even says so on my sidebar, TeeHee}

(Thanks to Trisha, Nicole and Kim also for the use of  some of the photos in my post taken from Brandcation Flickr stream.)

All those pictures are absolutely fabulous Lorie! They make me so jealous too xD

I'm so glad you had a great time! I've actually only been to Disney once when I was 12 so I haven't been able to see it all decked out for the holidays.

And on a personal note, I would like to ALSO thank Lisa for being so kind as to push you in the wheelchair all day-I KNOW what goes into that and how hard it is and it takes a great person to volunteer for that job :)

Disney - how fun! I always wonder what it's like there, the American Disney, as I'm sure the only Disney I went to is definitely Asian.

Any MMMM post yet? I haven't seen it. Maybe I'll come back.

P.S. I have also followed you. And one more thing, I can't get over your adorable pooches! On FB I also write my surname next to my poodle's given name :)
