So, these are the ten things I'm most excited about, in no particular order...
This is an obvious one (for me)... take a look at my last blog post to find out which new restaurants we're trying this year.
I love all the rollercoasters in Walt Disney World as well as all the other ride varieties. My four favourites (one for each park) are Space Mountain, Rock 'n' Roller Coaster, Expedition Everest and Test Track!
I've been obsessively studying AccuWeather for the last six weeks or so and it looks as if we'll be enjoying averages of around 30C for the duration of our stay.
We walk miles when we're on holiday in Walt Disney World and there are beautiful sights to see around every turn. I can't wait to see some of my favourite views again!
From the perfectly executed and infectiously cheery parades at the Magic Kingdom to the Star Wars marches in Hollywood Studios, you can't beat an uplifting parade at Walt Disney World.
I love seeing all the various characters on their parade floats, but I also love meeting a select few individually. I'm looking forward to ticking some different ones, as well as my old favourites, off my list.
Whether you're singing along to daytime shows like Beauty and the Beast and Festival of the Lion King, or gaping with awe at one of the four stunning night shows, Walt Disney World puts on a better show than anyone else!
As you'll have read in another recent blog post, I've already got lots of items on my shopping wish list and I'm looking forward to hitting World of Disney and the other offerings in Disney Springs, as well as the many shopping outlets in Orlando.
From the complimentary Disney resort buses to the Friendship boats to the airport's Magical Express, even the many modes of transportation at Walt Disney World are perfect.
Escaping into the Disney bubble
This is the most important item on the list. As soon as I step on to that Magical Express at the airport, and even more so when I walk into the Magic Kingdom on our first morning, I feel as if I'm enclosed in a Disney bubble away from the real world with all its worries and stresses. For someone who's usually stressed out, particularly after the events of the last nine months, this feeling is like gold dust so I intend to make the most of it.
See you in 6 days, Walt Disney World!
