Our Trip to Walt Disney World Just Before the Closures

The only travel we have done for the past several weeks (feels like years) is from one room to another. Looking back at some of our travel has put a smile on our faces. Our trip to Walt Disney World just before the park closure is a happy memory we would like to share with you.

Our family said goodbye to Walt Disney World on March 6, just a week before the Disney parks closed. We were informed about what was happening in other parts of the world before we traveled to Orlando, FL, and took as many precautions as we could. The situation changed very quickly after we returned home.

Let’s find a fun way to enjoy an adventure from the safety of our homes! Join us on our trip to Walt Disney World.

As annual passholders who live 1000 miles away, we like to spend almost two weeks during our visits to Walt Disney World. It’s nice to have the flexibility of not feeling rushed to experience everything and the opportunity to take some rest when we need it (and we always need it at some point). We made the most of every minute and our trip was totally AWESOME!

 Our travel dates made an attempt to mostly avoid spring break and we decided to stay at the Double Tree Suites by Hilton at Disney Springs so that we would have more room and a comfier living space while still enjoying the benefits of staying on Disney property.

We made at least two visits to each park and took advantage of the Magic Kingdom After Hours event. Our only dinning reservation on this trip was for Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen which was an amusing dining experience. Plus we made a last minute return to Chef Mickey’s. The kids took advantage of several WDW scavenger hunts; Kidcot Fun Stops and Spike’s Pollen-Nation Exploration 2020 at Epcot, Animal Kingdom’s Lion King Scavenger Hunt, and A Pirate’s Adventure – Treasures of the Seven Seas at the Magic Kingdom. WDW scavenger hunts are an entertaining activity that usually avoid the crowds.

Some of our highlights include:

Riding Big Thunder Mountain 6 times!

Meeting Chewbacca.

Activating our annual passes.

Riding Rise of the Resistance.

Visiting Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival.

Riding Splash Mountain which was a first for half of our family.

Taking a walk with some new friends at Animal Kingdom.

My husband and I getting to make a special trip to the Magic Kingdom alone (I haven’t been there without kids for 16 years)!

Our next trip to Walt Disney World is scheduled for early June. For now we are hopeful that we can safely enjoy that trip and it is something for us to look forward too!
