Oh Disney World, how I love you so. How magical you made my Mardi Gras weekend. And how sore you made my poor footsies. But, how special you made my vacation…
Me and Jason, along with four of our best friends headed to the most magical place on earth this past weekend to
avoid, escape, run screaming from, experience something other than Mardi Gras festivities. Here in South Louisiana, Mardi Gras is king, and it consumes an entire few weeks in February, culminating in Mardi Gras Day / Fat Tuesday. We’ve all lived through Mardi Gras our whole lives, so it was a nice chance to do something different and new. AND to go on vacation 🙂
And boy did we go.
We stayed at the Pop Century resort.
We waited in lines for buses.
We had breakfast with a few celebrities 🙂
Waited in more lines, but at least it was out of the rain.
We made wishes under Cinderella’s castle during the fireworks.
We stayed in Magic Kingdom until 2:30 a.m. Just because we could.
Made our way to Universal for some non-Disney fun!
Maybe a little too much fun…
And stopped taking pictures after this moment because we all officially hit our breaking point after three 18-hour days and all started to look like zombies and refused to take any more pictures, lest we smile one more time and explode from the magic.
All in all, it was an AMAZING trip. Good times. We laughed, ALOT. And got to be kids again. I only hope we can make more trips like this with this group and all our friends so that we always remember to have fun, be young and enjoy life.
P.S. We also agreed that the next vacation would involve a beach or a cabin with no lines or crazy Disney employees that yell at you when you stop of the “designated pedestrian sidewalk.” Sounds lovely and peaceful, right?
Have a magical day!!
