Our Trip to Disney World

Our Trip to Disney World 2021

So excited for a week at the most magical place on earth! While I know this visit might look different than previous years, I have no doubt that the magic is still there.

I’ll be sharing lots of tips, tricks + favorites on Instagram stories this week, but I thought for now I would hit the high points of our itinerary, what my favorite rides are and what’s in my suitcase.

12pm: mobile ordered lunch at Pecos Bill (I did a chicken rice bowl) *PRO TIP: place your order for lunch while standing in line for a ride about 30 minutes to an hour before you’re ready to eat. That will have your order ready for pickup as soon as you’re off the ride!
