Dining at Satu’li Canteen in Pandora | Walt Disney World

June 27, 2017

Pandora – The World of Avatar
Happy Tuesday! I JUST got back from an impromptu trip to Disney World (last minute trips are always my favorite) and boy was it amazing (as always!). One of my favorite things about Disney is that no matter how many times I visit (which, trust me, is a lot! In the past two years alone I’ve visited 20+ times), there’s always something new to see and explore. This trip I was super exited to finally be able to visit Pandora – The World of Avatar, which is the newest land at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Although I’m not the biggest Avatar fan (I think the film was a visual masterpiece and I’m glad I got to experience it in IMAX 3D when it first came out but story wise, it was a little forgettable in my opinion), I thought that Pandora was breathtaking and a definite must see! Trust me, you do not have to be an Avatar fan to be able to appreciate all the beauty Pandora has to offer! Speaking of things Pandora has to offer, along with getting to experience the two new rides in Pandora, I was really excited to try out some of the new Avatar-inspired food during my visit!

USA Travel Bucket List

USA Travel Bucket List
Nothing makes me happier than getting to cross something off of one of my (many) bucket lists! It’s such an accomplishment getting to finally experience something you’ve wanted for so long (and it makes you feel so happy!) I also love going back and reading the correlating blog posts so I can relive those moments over and over again! Along with getting to cross things off my bucket lists, another thing that truly makes me happy is traveling (speaking of traveling, I’m heading to Disney World next week!). Ever since I shared my Europe Travel Bucket List a few years ago (which I need to update a bit), I’ve been wanting to share a bucket list of some of the places I want visit here in my country. Although I’ve been to a lot of the big cities/destinations here in the States like New York City, Boston, Chicago (which is where I live), DC, Los Angelers, Philadelphia, Orlando, Baltimore, Milwaukee, Seattle, Miami, Tampa, St. Louis, etc., there are still so many more places that I want to explore here in the US!

Spending the Afternoon at the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, France

June 12, 2017

Musée d'Orsay
You guys, I’m SO excited because I FINALLY got an external hard drive (I know, took me long enough!). In case you couldn’t tell, I take a lot of pictures, especially when I’m traveling. In fact, I have so many photos and different memory cards from different trips that I’ve run out of storage space on my Macbook Air so I’ve been having to upload all my photos to my iMac and its been one big crazy mess (first world problems I know!). Luckily with the external hard drive I finally have one place to store all my photos and organize all of my photos from past trips that I’ve yet to blog out. Speaking of past trips, I know I’ve blogged a little bit about my two trips to Paris last spring and winter (like my visit(s) to Disneyland Paris, exploring the Louvre and Catacombs of Paris, one of my favorite spots to view the Eiffel Tower from and my stay at the Dream Castle Hotel) but I still have a few more Paris posts to share with you all. Today I wanted to share some of my favorite photos from my afternoon at the Musée d’Orsay! In case you couldn’t tell from my various art museums and art exhibits posts, I LOVE a good art museum so obviously visiting the Musée d’Orsay was high on my Paris bucket list! Continue reading

Dining at Three Broomsticks | Wizarding World of Harry Potter

May 19, 2017

The Three Broomsticks Wizarding World of Harry PotterHappy Friday everyone! If you checked out my latest post (or if you follow me on Instagram) then you may already know that I’m heading to Disney World next month (aren’t impromptu trips the best?). Even though I’m already heading to Disney World in August, earlier this week I found an unbeatable price on a flight to Orlando for next month so of course I booked it! Since I’m heading to Disney, that also means I’m heading to Universal Orlando. If you’ve been following this blog for a while then you might recall that I wasn’t always a fan of Universal (it’s not that I hated it, I just wasn’t to fond of it) but ever since I became a Universal Orlando annual passholder, and really got the chance to fully  explore the parks, I’ve grown to really appreciate Universal. Although, I will admit I’m not a huge fan of the dinning options in Universal (Universal CityWalk is a different story though!). Ever since I started posting Disney Parks Restaurant Reviews, I’ve been wanting to share Universal Restaurant Reviews as well. The only problem is, I rarely dine at any of the restaurants at Universal Orlando. That’s not to say there aren’t any good restaurants within Universal Orlando. One of my go-to dining spots at Universal Orlando is Three Broomsticks, which is located within the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Easter Egg Hunt Egg-stravaganza at Epcot | Walt Disney World

April 12, 2017

Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival
Last month while I was at Disney World, for the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, I got to FINALLY cross off something that’s been on my Disney bucket list for the longest time: participate in the easter egg hunt Egg-stravaganza at Epcot! Although I’ve visited Disney World (and Disneyland) plenty of times during the spring in the past, my trips never coincided with when the Easter Egg Hunt Egg-stravaganza was taking place (last year I literally missed it by two weeks!). The Easter Egg Hunt Egg-stravaganza (which takes place in Epcot at Disney World, Disneyland, California Adventure and Downtown Disney) is a fun, egg-themed scavenger hunt (for both kids and adults) where participants search for special hidden Disney themed “eggs” and record their discoveries by placing the corresponding Disney character’s sticker on the specially themed Egg-stravaganza map to represent that location.  Continue reading
