So here we are on the holiday we have planned for 1.5 years. And has it disappointed? Absolutely not, so far it has been incredible. Today we have had a rest day by the pool, I love the fact that we are in the heart of Disney yet I am sat here on a sun lounger able to chill a little and recharge my batteries ready for the rest of our break.
I have so much to share about Disney, but thought I would write a little round-up of what we love about Disney so far.
We are staying at the very beautiful Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa, I am going to write a full review about the resort once I am home, but if you choose your room wisely this resort is stunning. We initially had a small issue with our room so I got straight onto the reception team, they were so helpful and had it sorted within 24 hours.
I think you can always judge the service a resort offers by how they deal with issues and I can’t fault Disney’s approach in the matter. They Disney Crew Members are a truly professional team. I love how every time you arrive back at resort you a greeted with a huge friendly welcome home, it gives me goose bumps every time.
As we had planned our itinerary from home it has been so easy to navigate Disney. I literally check my Disney App each evening before we go to bed; the App is linked to My Disney Experience, it gives me a full rundown of our itinerary for the next day.
The wonderful thing is you can tweak it, change fast pass times to suit you plans. I can honestly say it has worked seamlessly for us. In between FastPass times we have been able to jump in lines with waits less than 15 minutes and have got to ride lots of rides. If the wait time is longer I have managed to shuffle the FastPass.
Dining has been fantastic too, we have loved almost every meal we have eaten, our favourite was Ragland Road. The atmosphere was just so vibrant and service was faultless. This takes me on to the dining plan, it has been so easy to use, it is so great to just be able to carry minimal cash. Tonight we are planning to eat in the hotel restaurant, which every time we pass smells delicious and looks out over the beautiful Disney Lake.
We are just loving the memory maker, this is so great as we can focus on taking photos of the parks and Disney take care of family and character photos. And what is so amazing is that they load daily so every morning we can log on to My Disney Experience and view our photos from yesterday. I must say I can’t wait to check every morning and haven’t been disappointed yet.

We have so many more to go, so this may well change but we are having a great time discovering.
I can’t describe the Disney feeling, and it is something you gradually forget when you leave, you know you loved it when you last visited and cant wait to go back, but the feeling leaves you. Then you re visit and there it is again, that Disney Magic, the only was I can describe it is being in the perfect Disney Bubble where everyone is happy, and you just want to keep floating in the bubble and never want it to burst. And as soon as you leave the bubble you know you have to get back into it in some shape or form.
