Happy Wednesday everyone! I know it’s been a while since my last post (almost 12 days, yikes!). In fact, I’m pretty sure this is the longest I’ve gone without posting since I first launched this blog back in 2013 (side note, I can’t believe this blog is turning FOUR years old later this year?! Man does time fly by!). I’ve just been super sick lately (I’ve literally been coughing non-stop for the past three days, which is odd because the weather has been beautiful here in Chicago) and although I’ve wanted to post, I just didn’t feel up to it. That’s one of my favorite things about having a blog, I have the powerful (if you read that in He-Man’s voice then you’re awesome) to update as often as I want! As some of you may know (especially if you follow me on Instagram), I spent last week (and a part of the week before that) at Disney World (aka my second home) exploring the (first ever) Epcot International Festival of the Arts. Although I wasn’t planning on visiting Disney World again until March (for the kickoff of the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival), after hearing more details about the Epcot International Festival of the Arts I knew I HAD to check it out (what kind of Disney lover/annual passholder would I be if I didn’t?).

Traveling and Disney are two of my favorite things so whenever the opportunity to combine the two arrives, I JUMP at it! Continue reading
Although I’ve been to Disney World more times than I can count (I’ve visited the Disney Parks, including Disney World, Disneyland and Disneyland Paris, TEN times in the last 12 months alone so you catch my drift), this year was my first time experiencing the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival! Since becoming a Disney Premier Passport holder (aka someone who has an annual pass to both Disneyland AND Disney World, I’m also an annual passholder to Disneyland Paris) last May (my pass sadly expires next week but don’t worry, I’m DEFINITELY renewing it), I’ve really tried to focus on crossing off as many things on my Disney bucket list as possible.
Since attending the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival has been something I’ve been itching to do for YEARS now, I thought this year would be the perfect time to finally go see it (since I’m a passholder!). I ended up spending three days (well, one full day and two half days) exploring the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival and all I can say is photos DO NOT do it justice! It was absolutely breathtaking and I think it’s something ALL Disney lovers should experience in person (honestly, you don’t even have to be a huge Disney fan to appreciate all the beauty the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival has to offer!).
