Until this past June, it had been over a decade since my last visit to Disney World down in Orlando, Florida. I was lucky enough as a child to go quite often with my family and experience Disney, just like every child should be able to do. Now that I am older, I was able to remember the trip a little bit better than I did when I was a child. I forgot how thrilling it was to drive down that long road and following the signs to the Magic Kingdom Park and park in one the various parking lots that are named after different Disney characters. I remember getting goosebumps walking through the gates and walking down Main Street heading towards Cinderella's Castle, it was like living in a dream. If you are lucky enough to travel to Florida and experience Disney World or even over to California and see Disney Land, here are a few places I suggest going to once you get there: 

1) Main Street, Magic Kingdom 

Shops, food, characters, and Cinderella's Castle right at the end, what else could you wish for?! Before entering different sections of Magic Kingdom, Main Street is the perfect place to get a little bit of everything you can think of when Disney comes to your mind. 

2) Big Thunder Mountain

Now, I realize everyone may not be a rollercoaster junkie like myself, but this is one the most popular and widely known rides in the Magic Kingdom. Even if you are not a fan of fast and twisty rides, experience this once and you will not regret it, trust me. 

3) Meeting Characters

There are plenty of opportunities for you to meet your favorite place while you're in Disney World. Even though I am not the biggest fan when it comes to someone being dressed up in costume, it is something I always enjoy. In my many years of going to Disney, I have only experienced having character meals where the characters come around and greet your family during your meal. But character meals are not the only times you can meet your favorite person. Characters are always wandering around the parks waiting to greet their biggest fans or you can stand in line and wait to get a nice, big hug from Peter Pan (who is my personal favorite character). 

4) Shop

As much as I love and support Disney world, I will be the first to say that it is not the most financially-friendly place to visit. A lot of the things are overpriced, but you want to have things that are going to make you remember your trip by (other than taking pictures, obviously). So walk into any of the many themed/non-themed gift shops and pick up a shirt with Mickey Mouse and Walt Disney standing in the middle of Main Street, a mug with your favorite character on it, or a plush toy that you can display on your shelves in your room!

5) Fireworks

There is nothing more magical and relaxing than standing and watching the many fireworks shows that Disney puts on in their parks. This last trip that I went on, I was only able to see the fireworks that the Magic Kingdom put on, but it still so amazing to see experience. I won't go into details about them because if you are able to experience it for yourself, I want it to be a surprise. 

Disney really does stand by its slogan of being the "Happiest Place on Earth". It was a place that I never wanted to leave and cannot wait to experience it again. If you ever get the chance and find yourself in Disney, cherish every moment as much as possible.
