Walt Disney World- Christman Style, part 1

As I mentioned in one of my previous blog posts, Rusty and I went to Walt Disney World for a week for his 30th birthday! I was able to pull off this surprise visit for him, which if you know me was a miracle in itself. I have a hard time keeping "happy" secrets like that, but I was able to do it!!!
We are apart of the Disney Vacation Club, which makes it pretty affordable to visit Disney, well pretty much anywhere but we always love to visit Disney :) We stayed at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, it was great.
Here are some pictures from our trip. The rides, shows, food, desserts, and overall atmosphere are wonderful! We had a great trip. We were down July 2-9th, which allowed us to enjoy the 4th of July- Disney style!
Please note, these pictures are in no particular order (sorry!)

Cinderella wishing well. For those of you who don't know, back in 2007 when Rusty and I went down to Disney for the first time together he proposed to me in the Cinderella Castle (I should do a separate post just about this, it was great). While we were waiting to be seated we went and looked at this well, and me being a dork and all I actually made a wish. I wished that one day Rusty and I would get married, little did I know that he would be proposing an hour later!! This well will always have a special place in my heart :)

Hall of Presidents, at Magic Kingdom. We made a special visit on the 4th of July, good way to get in the festive spirit (and get cool from the hot and crowds!)

Mickey and Minnie :) Notice the castle in the background, never get tired of looking at it! Wouldn't it be cool if you could live there???

This sign might not look like much, but they have the best pineapple dole whips around!!! They are amazing, especially on a hot day!!!! You can find them in the Magic Kingdom in adventure land.... well worth it :)

Rusty and I waiting for the bus at our resort!

Pirates of the Caribbean.... great ride!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie..... GREAT!!!!

Sci-Fri Diner.... the food could have been a little better, but pretty cool place to eat :)

American Idol Experience, call me a loser but I LOVE this show. Cool fact.... Aaron Kelly who was in the top five this season received his "golden" ticket from this show!

Minnie Mouse, Rusty's favorite :)

4th of July crowd at Magic Kingdom, it was crazy. The fireworks were amazing, well worth the two hour wait for a good viewing spot :)

4th of July Fireworks.... pretty cool looking!

While doing this post, I noticed that I have lots of pictures I want to share with you guys. I think I will break this into two different blog posts... stay tuned for part two! Hope your enjoying the pictures :)
