Florida 2018 Vacation Recap

Hello, lovelies!

I recently travelled to Florida with my boyfriend, Grant. We spent an action-packed week visiting theme parks, shopping and soaking up the sun!

Day 1 – Arrival

Our trip began with an early flight and one layover. The first day involved errands (picking up park passes, snacks/water, etc) and settling into the hotel.

Day 2 – Magic Kingdom

This day was absolutely magical! I’d visited Magic Kingdom once before, but did not get to experience everything in the park due to a recent surgery. We headed to the park early and spent the day exploring rides and 3D animations. I’m a Disney fan at heart and made a special point to meet Cinderella while in the park! This was my favourite day throughout the trip thanks to the full Disney experience.

Day 3 – Shopping

During the first day of shopping, I successfully avoided the Kate Spade store in favour of new dressy clothes from Forever 21, H&M and Roz & Ali.

Day 4 – Hollywood Studios 

Walking around Hollywood Studios felt like a scene from a 1950s-era movie! The park itself was adorable, and we viewed attractions from Frozen, Star Wars and Indiana Jones. This action-packed day was entertaining and fun.

Day 5 – Disney Springs

Disney Springs was such a fun place to explore! It is a shopping, dining and entertainment centre located near Epcot. Featured stores include Coach, Anthropologie, and Kiehl’s. I loved browsing the various stores and outdoor plaza areas.

Day 6 – Last Minute Shopping

While I told myself I did not need to shop while in Florida, that didn’t last very long. I bought multiple dresses and blouses, and a new pair of Sketchers. While at the Orlando Premium Outlets, I impulsively decided to buy a new Kate Spade handbag. This bag is a beautiful forest-green tote that will be perfect for the fall and winter seasons! Later in the day, we visited The Cheesecake Factory, located in the upscale Mall of Millenia.

Day 7 – Universal Studios 

Returning to Universal Studios was a blast!  I’m usually terrified of heights but decided to try a few roller coaster-like and 3D motion rides (that were both terrifying and adventurous). I visited this theme park previously, but enjoyed this visit far more as I tested more rides and attractions.

Day 8 – Last Day 

The last day of our trip involved last-minute errands, and packing. After checking out of the hotel, we headed to the airport for our flight.
