Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world. - Walt Disney.
So here is my first blog in a while, my first one abroad, well I was currently in Florida, I've had so many people ask me if I'm American, with my American sounding/Canadian accent having grown up in international schools. So no I am not,
I am Dutch and Scottish, yes the land of weed and prostitutes and the land of haggis, fake monsters and drinkers! Oh what a life huh..but let's keep this PG!
The truth of an international lifestyle
For some of you that know already… I've only ever been to the states once which was back in 2009 on a school trip and we went to New York. So I was so excited to come back and really experience the American culture from what I see on films I watch people seem to think I already know.
So back to my Disneyland Florida experiences growing up I've never really been to any of these resort types like Disney theme park places. Growing up in Asia and Africa it would be safaris and real in-depth cultural experiences. So I've never really knowing much about this theme park life and the understanding of it all. Well I had my first ever Disney experience the other day at 26!
I was so thrilled to finally get that they must photo in front of the castle.
It is pretty remarkable considering how big Disney actually is and how much property and different events they continue to grow with. From Hollywood studios to Disney springs and more I can't even remember. I went with Thomas (My boyfriend) and his family, it was lovely for them to invite me.
One thing I love about Florida is the heat although at times I can get a little bit too hot but I'm never complaining. We stayed at the Tuscan hills Villa which is pretty epic. Although I'm yet to find a crocodile or shall I say alligator as apparently there are said to be sitting here on the side of the road.
Super chilled, nice and personal pools, it's the life!
One thing I would suggest if you do go to Disneyland and I guess it's the same for any form of theme park or attraction in the world is bring your own lunch. I don't know how much we have spent on bits and bobs in the park. One thing I thought was absolutely fantastic was the Disney parade I actually got goosebumps and tears in my eyes as I thought oh my God this is amazing!
Disney Magic on Parade! - Disneyland Paris 20th Anniversary
You can tell this is a total kid playground though, you can see why it's such a massive family attraction. Everyone said we had to go to universal. But in all honestly paying almost $200 was outta our budget!
But you can imagine it was absolutely jampacked. Then you always get that one selfish beep standing right at the front with a big ass umbrella! I mean talk about thinking about others. We went to some outlet stores which is pretty awesome which was the premium outlets that so many people back in Scotland recommended I go to.
We ate some amazing food, from going to Rainforest Cafe to local stands and of course a cheeky Mc Ds.
Prices range from $10 a meal to $38, it all depends on the experience and what you are wanting.
