Last week was nothing short of MAGICAL for me. Thanks to Mix and Match Travel as well as all of our amazing clients, I got to participate in a fall experiences training program at Walt Disney World a big part of last week. This program was all about sharing new things happening at Walt Disney World this fall from experiences to new resort renovations as well as prepare for many new things coming to Walt Disney World soon.
I boarded my Tuesday morning flight bright and early. Thanks to my Kindle Paperwhite I finished a book and started a new one.
BLOGGER FAIL…missed the sign completely!
Just a few minutes later we pulled up to our resort for the program, Caribbean Beach Resort.
Caribbean Beach Resort has recently gone through refurbishments and this new lobby area is stunning.
The check-in area was gorgeous.
My room wasn’t ready quite yet so I headed over to the quick service area to grab a little lunch. This pizza was everything I hoped it would be and more.
Then I set up shop in the lobby and got to work!
After a little work time, my room was ready so I headed off to get freshened up.
See the new Riviera Resort?
A look at my room…
My dress is here.
Really quickly I headed down to meet the group and look who was waiting for us…
A big ole group of Minnie Vans-aren’t they cute?
We had meetings/training as a big group before they set us loose for an evening in Magic Kingdom at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.
The fall decorations were my absolute FAVORITE! Do you see that garland?
These fall Mickey wreaths were everywhere and were so pretty. This group of girls and I hung out all week and they were precious.
There’s just something magical about Main Street in Magic Kingdom.
We hit up a couple rides with Seven Dwarfs Mine Train being top of the list.
Stepping off the ride, we almost collided with Cruella herself.
Then it was time for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.
The characters were OUT for the party.
The entrance to the Skipper Canteen was showing off at sunset…on our trip in April Shay and I took Bowen and Ashby here for dinner.
What’s more magical than THE CASTLE at night?
We walked past the Monster’s Inc. crew having a dance party.
And then can you spy who was having a little show at the castle?
The Sanderson Sisters 🙂
We rested up a bit waiting for Mickey’s Boo to You Halloween Parade to begin.
Cruella’s Halloween Hide-A-Way was up next.
Cruella was the STAR of this show. She came around to each table taking pictures and being well, EXACTLY like how you’d imagine Cruella to be…speaking her mind and a bit rude. Our table thought she was hysterical. One of the ladies in our group had enjoyed a dessert that left her entire mouth-teeth, gums, everything BLUE. Cruella wasn’t expecting that and almost broke character because of this situation. Needless to say, our table was rolling.
Cruella’s party was full of savory treats as well as a delicious buffet of desserts.
A super cute way to end our first day.
Remember if you’d like to head to Walt Disney World soon, we’d love to help you with all the planning. We’ll take care of all the details! Just send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to get started!
