When You Wish Upon a Star

disney 2

I realized a few days into my Disney World vacation that I didn't post anything on my blog about leaving. Those of you that follow me on any of the other social media platforms I am a too-eager participant of would have figured it out rather easily, though. I'm back now, though. It was an amazing ten day trip, filled with rides, magic, all the food, a little bit of nausea, weeping all over the place out of sheer joy, fireworks, long hugs and more magic. Leaving Disney is always the worst, and it was extra difficult this year, because this year, in addition to just saying goodbye to Disney World itself, I had to say goodbye to someone there that I didn't want to say goodbye to. I'm still sleepy and have an ache in my chest and am trying to settle back down into this every day life at home, and I figured that sharing some photos from the trip may help lift my spirits (or make me weep uncontrollably all over the place, I haven't figured out which yet). I figured I'd break up the disney posts into three: today's will be general pictures, the next will be outfit photos I took throughout the trip (when I remembered to take them) and the last will be me with all of the millions of characters I met and took photos with while I was there. Thank you Disney for making magic feel real.

Like a bolt out of the blue, fate steps in and sees you through. Anything your heart desires will come to you.

Until tomorrow,


  1. This looks like the best time! I've gone to Disneyland a lot because of where I live, but I've never been to Disney World. I really want to go someday, especially to check out the "extra" parks like Epcot.

  2. Aww what an AMAZING trip! And...why didn't you tell me that you would come to Italy? ;)

  3. This breaks my heart! I went to Disney World last year. It was the first time I'd been (the first time I'd been to the USA too) and it was the most amazing time I have ever had. I have never been as happy as I was there. I miss it so much still!


  4. Aweee! Disney! :D :D Cute, cute. I'm glad that it was a super magical experience for you. I hope you felt like a princess, because YOU TOTALLY ARE ONE (in my eyes? better than a Disney princess, you are!). I haven't been to Disney since I was like 7. Wonder what it's like nooow... :)

  5. i'm so jealous. i'm a few weeks! and haven't bought tickets or anything because i'm lazy and i don't wanna spend money. ha. anyhow. this gets me totally excited! i love that you got the sparkle ears - they are so cute on you. and all of your outfits are just adorable

  6. So I happened to keep track of you through your Twitter updates and your whole trip did indeed sound magical. Also a whole lot hilarious. I laughed out loud at more than a few of your tweets. :)

  7. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh I love Disney. These photos make me happy. SO MUCH MAGIC!

  8. It took me a couple of days to figure out where you went, honestly. But sometimes you just have to up and dash off to Disney, right? (:

  9. Disney World is the happiest place on earth, haha. :p Well it's so pretty inside. Your pictures give me fond memories when I went! x


Thank you so, so much for taking some time to comment on my blog!
