Chloe's Chat: Headed for Disney World!

In true Kobe and Chloe fashion, my boyfriend and I decided two nights ago that we are going to Disney World.

My mom always jokes that we always decide at the last minute to go on these kinds of trips, and she is obviously not wrong. But we are excited!

We have booked our trip for the week after school is out, Sunday, Dec. 18 to Thursday, Dec. 22.

Technically, we are only visiting Disney World for one of the days that we are there, but (to be honest) that is probably safer on our bank accounts, anyways. The other days we have a load of other fun activities planned.

Sunday we will just be checking into our resort, a brand new place called Calypso Cay Resort that I got a huge deal on for only $50 a night. It offers a free shuttle service to and from Disney and is only about eight minutes away.

Because we are getting in so late, it will not be a very eventful night. After checking in, we will probably just crash and get ready for a busy next day.

Monday we have booked a tee time at 10 a.m. with Disney’s fancy Lake Buena Vista Golf Resort to play 18 holes. After that, we will make dinner at our resort (our room has a full kitchen) and head out to Disney Springs. Disney Springs is a free section of Disney that has loads of bars, restaurants, live music and other fun things to do.

Tuesday, we gave ourselves a bit longer of a morning. Our tee time that day will be at 12:24 p.m. at Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course for nine holes. Because it’s a short golf day, we will have plenty of time to then soak up the sun at the pools at our resort.

There will be an outside bar, one large pool, and two hot tubs for guests to use. We may or may not go back to Disney Springs that night, but we have to go to bed early to wake up early the next day for Disney World.

Wednesday is Disney day! We are starting our day very early, 8 a.m. sharp, at Animal Kingdom. We are most excited to visit Pandora, the Avatar-inspired part of the theme park, and DinoLand. In the early afternoon, we have lunch at Tiffins Restaurant in the Africa-inspired part of the theme park. After that, we are park hopping over to Epcot.

To finish out the rest of our fun day, we will be “drinking around the world” at Epcot. Epcot has 11 pavilions stretching along almost two miles in a circle called the “world showcase.” Each pavilion depicts a different country or part of the world. And each country has its own unique foods and beverages.

We will end our night around 8 p.m., when we have dinner reservations at Disney’s La Hacienda de Angel, a gorgeous fine dining restaurant in Epcot’s Mexico Pavilion. This place has floor to ceiling windows overlooking the blue lagoon surrounding Epcot. At 9 p.m., Epcot’s famous “Harmonious” fireworks display will be over the lagoon.

And then Thursday we will go home.

We are both extremely excited for our future adventures. I cannot wait to go to Disney!
