Our First Disney Trip…In Pictures

Updated: Jan 27

To be honest, I mostly do these posts for my future self. I’ve always treated this site like a journal, in a sense, so I can look back years from now and see my own growth as well… and I tend to wash my phone in the washing machine and drop it in the toilet a lot so this is also my way of preserving pictures!

Anyway… maybe about a year ago, me and Taylor were talking about Disney and he had learned that I had never been to any Disney parks or resorts…ever… which in his eyes was absolutely ridiculous so we started making plans to go. Taylor’s leave got moved around and we ended up not going.

Fast forward to after deployment and Taylor tells me we are going on a surprise vacation and as you could probably guess I, finally, after 24 years on this earth, got to go to Disney.

And let me tell you, Disney had the best food.

Taylor got one hole-in-one…and then ate it the entire rest of the game.

Before the storm and after the storm…

These are, hands down, Taylor’s favorite pictures that we took.

Everyone always says how magical of a place Disney is and I never really got it. I mean, how could a theme park really feel “magical” if it is just a theme park? Disney truly was one of the greatest vacations I have ever taken. I stepped out of my comfort zone and rode roller coasters. I laughed until I cried. I soaked up the Florida sun. I ate amazing food. I was reminded of all the things that made me happy and hopeful as a kid. And I did it all with my best friend.
