I’m in the mood for a FUN post! It’s Friday & I’m giddy!! Aren’t you happy the weekend’s here? What about the fact that summer has pretty much officially arrived? I’ve been mentally planning our summer fun for the past month, and finally put it down on paper this week. I created a calendar for June and July, and have been marking down all our activities, plans, and trips.
With all our school year activities finishing up, my girls had started to get ancy, “we have nothing to do!” So glad I remembered that they need to see our plans in a concrete fashion to lay off mama. Mama’s need breaks too! It’s a lot of work planning and coordinating with other moms, friends and juggling all the regular stuff that needs to be done. Our minds are working overtime….seriously 24/7 and it’s all behind the scenes. Can we have a little bit of appreciation? Who’s with me? This mama gig is hard work sometimes! 😉
I’ve been wanting to share with you guys for a long time about some of my favorites at Disney! In fact, we just zipped up there this past weekend. Living in Florida…I’ve mentioned before that our family is bigtime Disney fanatics. Our girls are now 13, 9 and 4, and this is the third time we’ve been blessed to be season passholders! Over the years we’ve created AMAZING memories with them! They love Disney…and my hubby and I love Disney because there’s something there for all of us to do. We have FUN together the whole time we’re there.
The rides never get old because we make new memories every time we ride them. I’m sure it helps we have a 4 year old, and we’re all excited to show her Disney all over again. This past February when we went…it was brand new to her. She didn’t remember the trips we took when she was 1 and 2 years old. And then of course we talked about trips in the past. Certain areas spark memories from when our older two were younger. Ahh…parenting can be bittersweet, but at least when my honey and I are old and gray we can visit Disney and stroll down memory lane again and again and again!
One of our favorite things to do at Disney of course is EAT! Right? Everyone has their special meals, snacks and treats they look forward to when traveling….and Disney trips are no different! Disney fanatics the world over obsess about making sure they get their treats in. I splash these Disney treats all over Instagram, and have probably mentioned them before.
Today I’m sharing my love of Fish ‘n Chips and the United Kingdom Pavilion. I have Irish roots and hubby has Scottish roots so I’m sure that plays a part. Maybe one day we’ll get to take a trip over there, but for now we’re content to get our British, Irish and Scottish fill stateside here in Epcot. If you haven’t been to Epcot in awhile….you must go! Recently we chatted with a couple that hadn’t been in at least 20 years. That always blows my mind!
Disney even has a Florida resident pass for just the Epcot park after 4pm. It’s at a reduced rate, and a great way to get in some Epcot time if you’re not into the other theme parks. But please don’t mistake Disney for your typical theme park. Disney stands above the rest! They honor and treat their guests special. It’s one place we know that service still means something. We get value for our dollar. We also never stand in lines….we know how to work the fast pass system, and even on crowded days we do all we set out to do.
Who else loves these Fish ‘n Chips? They’re my main must have meal when I’m visiting Epcot. They’re tender, flaky, crunchy and just plain amazing! A value at only $7.99! Make sure you stop by the Yorkshire County Fish Shop next time you’re there. What’s your must have meal at Epcot?
