So Disney was a blast!!!!!!!! Everything but our hotel was absolutely fabulous! By the time we got in, off the plane, and got the Magical Express to our hotel it was after noon, so we headed to Downtown Disney for lunch. Then we headed back to our hotel for more drama (we eventually switched rooms bc they had not cleaned ours and it smelled like smoke- one of many issues- never stay at Pop Century). Eventually we headed over to Hollywood Studios and Shaina got us in so we could go have dinner at this super cute 50s restaurant. It was decorated so adorably and I would put more pictures but I already have like 500 bazillion pictures in this post! It was decorated like you were in a house from the 50s. The dining areas looked like you were sitting at a kitchen table and there was a tv playing old shows and everything. The servers would tell you to stop playing with your toys if you had your phones out and would tell you to get your elbows off the table. It was really fun. Sara got a ginormous plate of fried chicken, Maggie got a stuffed pepper, and I got a crabcake!

So the next day we slept until noon because we woke up way too early and stayed out pretty late the day before. We got food at our resort and it was surprisingly good. I don't have a picture (I think there is one on Sara's camera?) but I got this ruben flatbread melt. I wasn't expecting to get such good food at a Disney hotel, but it was amazing. So after laying out all day we went and met up with Shaina and Ellen as they were getting off work at the studios and then went to Bahama Breeze for dinner with a bunch of Maggie's other friends! I got a salmon alfredo pasta that was delicious! The only problem was it was so huge I couldn't eat it all and we couldn't bring our leftovers home with us! After dinner we tried to go to T-Rex at Downtown Disney to get a cottontini which I was so excited for only to find out that they closed at 11!!! LAME!
The next morning we woke up bright and early for a Character breakfast at the Grand Floridian! We met Mary Poppins, Alice in Wonderland, Mad Hatter, Pooh, and Tigger!
And the food was actually really good too! It was a buffet and they had a person making omelets! So I got an omelet with cheese and mushrooms! A couple pieces of bacon, a blueberry muffin, and of course I loaded up on pineapple!!!!!!
And even though I was pretty full I had to go back and get a Mickey shaped belgium waffle. Mostly because Sara told me that the syrup had orange slices in it so I had to try that and it was a-ma-zing! I'm going to start putting orange zest in my syrup because it was so good!
After breakfast we went and did Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, and Epcot! It was so awesome I didn't think we could fully do all those parks in one day but Maggie and Shaina are excellent guides and we had planned out before hand everything we wanted to do and did it all! So we ended at Epcot and ate in Morocco! It was sooooooo yummy. We started out with a goat cheese (my fav!) appetizer!
Then Shaina and I split cous cous with braised beef and caramelized onions, honey, and raisins! omg this was so delicious and I'm totally making this for myself! I know that my dad would love it bc he loves all things with raisins and yumminess!
So after Epcot we tried T-Rex again and, after practically running, we made it before they closed! And I finally got my cottontini! They put cotton candy in the glass and pour the martini over it!
So Thursday was our last day :( We packed up and checked out of the hotel and headed to the studios for one last time! We got some sweet treats to eat while we watched the HSM3 parade show thing! It was pretty exciting- caramel apple and HSM!
Then we left to head to the airport only to find out when we go there that our plane was delayed by like 2 hours!!!! So we chilled and had some food. I didn't know airports had such good food! I got a prosciutto and mozzarella sandwich!

Finally, many hours later, we arrived back in DC where I stayed for the last couple days of break and now I am unfortunately back in Richmond. However I am headed back home this weekend for my dad's b-day and I was hoping to maybe go to the NCAA tournament to see VCU hopefully beat UCLA but now the tickets have gotten too expensive so thats prob not happening either!!! but I will either be in Haymarket cheering them on with Rachel or in Richmond cheering them on with Sara and Maggie! I haven't decided yet!!!
