Walt Disney World Vacation

Oh Disney I love thee. Chris and I had a really fun time in Florida two weeks ago with some old friends, and some completely new friends. I can't thank our friend (Chris's college roommate), Matt, enough for inviting us down for the week! I miss it already. A place where this was my view every morning.
A place where THIS happens if it's your birthday.
Where the new pizzeria Via Napoli in Italy, Epcot served up amazing pizzas and Italian desserts. This is my new favorite Disney restaurant.
A place where this sucker at the Main Street Bakery in Magic Kingdom, was one of the best ice cream cookie sandwiches ever.
I miss the Biergarten Restaurant in Germany, where we'd stop for some beer (Oktoberfest) and amazing soft pretzels.
No picture of my soft pretzel, but this squirrel seemed to be enjoying his immensely. Even the wild animals in Disney World are does Disney do it??
And just when I thought it couldn't get more magical, this happened...
A proposal right in front of my eyes at Magic Kingdom! I missed the getting down on one knee part..doh! Overnight, Magic Kingdom had completely been turned over to the new season. Pumpkins, hay bales, and orange, yellow, and brown banners hung everywhere down Main Street.
The cast members stay in character, all the time.
And even getting stuck on Splash Mountain is a ton of fun....sort of. We had to be escorted off the ride and walk down through Brer Rabbit's briar partch.
And a place where this ode to Anchorman exists:
Well played Disney...well played. Until next time Disney! (Which just so happens to be 3 months from now!) Let the countdown begin.

Looks like you had an amazing time at the best place on earth! All the food looks delicious and the squirrels are definitely cuter there :) I wish we could go soon, but right now it is looking like Dec of 2013 before we get to go back :(

I LOVE Disneyland but haven't been to Disney World in years! We were thinking of going this summer or fall, but now Stephen's parents are hosting a family trip to Hawaii instead (which is definitely OK in my book). Maybe next year! It looks like a blast, especially Epcot!
