Blog-tember Challenge - DAY 18

Today's blog prompt from Brave Love is: Favorite vacation or place you've been.

This was an easy one for me because my husband and I STILL talk about this vacation.

During our first year of dating my husband and I went on vacation to Daytona Beach and Orlando, Florida.  We had so much fun!  I'm a huge beach bum, so anywhere with a beach, count me in!!

We spent the first two days at Daytona Beach.  We had so much fun just relaxing on the beach.  Just about everything was in walking distance so we walked to try out a few different restaurants, including Bubba Gump Shrimp. Soooo so good!

After you put your food order in they quiz you on Forrest Gump trivia while you wait for it to get done.  We apparently are Forrest Gump experts because we got every question right!  Woohoo!  After that we stopped at Coldstone Creamery for the very first time, and it was A-mazing!  Mmmmm cake batter ice cream...... ANYWAY, on the third day of our trip we swtiched to a hotel in Orlando, and went to Universal Studios!

We are big roller coaster fans so you know we had to go to Island of Adventure too.  I mean, the Jurassic Park section alone sells it for me. lol!

The fourth day was supposed to be a relax day before we left the next day.... but my husband had other ideas.  He decided to surprise me with Disney tickets!  I'm a HUGE Disney fan so I was just a wee bit excited...embarrassing picture below.

We only ended up staying in Disney for a few hours because I'm kind of a dummy and wore flip flops so I got bad blisters.  Seriously, what was I thinking?!  But we had the most amazing time ever!

I can't wait to bring Paige to Disney when she is just a little bit older... and maybe a little bit because I'm still a Disney dork.

Have you ever been to Universal Studios and Disney??  What one did you like better?

  1. How fun!!!! We have been to both (and only I have been to Disney World) ... I REALLY REALLY REALLY liked Universal Studios ... but I liked how my kids found Magic at Disney :)

  2. Oh em gee bubba gump!! I only ate there once, when I was still at the Philippines and it was amazing!! No other seafood restaurant can compare to it so far, for me anyway. Hehe! And so jelly, with disney! Never been to one lol.Hopefully I get to bring kaelyn there one day :P

  3. haha isn't it sooo good!? I LOVE shrimp so it was definitely my favorite restaurant we went to while we were there

  4. Aww bummer!! Hopefully you get to go one day! If you are more into rollercoasters I would say go to Universal Studios Islands of Adventure. It is FILLED with them! But if you want to be "wowed" by all things Disney then check that out....but give yourself more than just one day, like me! lol

  5. We enjoyed Universal a lot more because of the coasters but it was so cool to see Disney! I'm such a little kid at heart. I stared at the Castle for probably 5 minutes and took a billion photos! haha

  6. That looks like such an fun vacation! I've only been to Florida to catch a cruise so I haven't stayed long enough to visit any of the main attractions. Does the Wal-Mart near the port count as an attraction?

    I would love to visit all the Disney parks in Disney World one day. I've never been to a Universal Studios either but it sure sounds like fun!

  7. hahaha!! Sure, we can count that! haha! I would love to take my daughter one day when she's a little older and go to all of the parks. I think she would love that! Oh, and you are so welcome!! I actually included you in my blog post for tomorrow about my favorite blogs too. haha!
