My 30th Birthday Celebration

22 Nov

I still can’t believe I’m thirty. I feel like I was just 22.

Because my birthday fell on a Monday this year, my Celebration buddy Alison and I made plans for the day before (November 6th). I already knew one of Alison’s “things to do while in Florida” was to go to all four Disney parks in one day, so that’s what I suggested we do!

We parked at the Wilderness Lodge, and we were on our way!

Park #1- Animal Kingdom

Our only mission for this park was to hit up the safari.

Baby elephant!

Next, we caught the bus to the Yacht & Beach Club so we could walk in to Epcot through the back way since we were only really catching lunch there via the Food & Wine Festival. This is honestly one of my favorite spots on Disney property. It’s so pretty!

Park #2- Epcot

I can’t NOT do yoga in Canada now that I work for lululemon.

Oh hey girl hey!

I indulged in some cheddar cheese soup from Canada, a lobster claw from America, and the Grilled Beef Skewer with Chimichurri Sauce and Boniato Puree from Argentina.

We also enjoyed a soft serve ice cream cone!

Park #3- Hollywood Studios

And finally… Park #4- Magic Kingdom

We headed straight for Mickey and Minnie!

This is my most favorite time of the year at Disney! Can you see why?!

We also enjoyed Dumbo (my first time ever on this ride!), the Haunted Mansion, and the Buzz Lightyear ride before catching the fireworks and calling it a night.

It was an awesome day with a good friend, and I can’t even think of a better way to spend my 30th birthday!
