Disney World Holiday Vacation!

Finally, I can share with you our amazing trip to Disney World over the holidays. I had a fun time with imovie and created a little trailer video of our trip: (video)

Before we left for Disney I wanted us to all have matching luggage tags specifically for our trip. So I ordered these mickey luggage tags from Howddode on Etsy.
We arrived in Disney on Wednesday, December 26th and stayed at the Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. I love this resort, it's beautiful, serene and it brought back great memories from staying there when I was younger.

Once we settled into our rooms, we headed out to Hollywood Studios for the night. We were excited to see the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights.
We then spent the next few days doing all of the Disney Parks: Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and Epcot! Unfortunately, it was COLD that week in Florida. Low 50's and 40's at night. I didn't pack warm enough at all and matching sister Disney World hoodies were a MUST...as well as new hats :)

Cinderella's Castle was beautifully decorated for the holidays:


On my Birthday (12/30), I got to wear my very own personalized Disney Birthday pin! Everywhere we went, people wished me a happy birthday and it was great!

That night we went to Teppan Edo, the Hibachi restaurant at the Japan pavilion in Epcot. I LOVED this restaurant. The chef was great, and the food was amazing. Hibachi is always a fun time, and it was the perfect place to go for my birthday!


After dinner, we closed out the night watching the Epcot Illuminations fireworks show. The perfect end to a perfect vacation!


The Family!
