A to Z Challenge: D

A to Z Challenge




D

D is for Disney!! Did you know Saloca in Wonderland was originally a Walt Disney World travel blog? I spent over 10 years travelling across the Atlantic to holiday in Walt Disney World, Orlando. Those holidays are some of the best I've ever had and my family and I have made such amazing memories there, we still talk about things that happened on the earlier trips! As cliche as it sounds, it really is my happy place. It's a place I can go to just forget about the world, about work, about life really. For those two weeks I'm in an impenetrable bubble, where my only concern is what time's the 3 o'clock parade? (Disney geeks out there will know what I'm talking about!)

I love planning WDW trips and more often than not anyone around me who is even remotely thinking about a trip to Disney comes to seek me out. It's been a couple of years now since I've been but I still haunt the forums, subscribe to a couple of newsletters and listen to podcats. There's probably no Disney vlog I haven't watched on YouTube either! What can I say, I like to keep up to date with the magic!

It's been a while since I last set foot on the pixie dust paved Main Street...maybe it's time to make my way back? Watch this space!

Until next time...

  1. I'm going to Disneyland this month! Bringing the kiddos. They are SO EXCITED. I'll have to check out your old posts for ideas on how to make the most of our 3 days. Great start on the A to Z!

    1. Exciting! I hope you have an amazing trip - it'd be hard not to! There are some great forums out there that will help you immensly with planning, such as WDW for Grown-Ups and Mousebuzz. I also love the WDW Radio podcast, one of my all time favourites!

    1. If I could go say every other year then I'd be a very happy girl lol! There's so much of the world I want to see but I never want to go TOO long without a Disney trip!

  3. As a kid, my mom and dad and I would travel from Mechanicsburg Pa down Orlando way, for our semi-annual WDW holiday. The first time we went was in 1972. I was five, and loved it. We went back down when I was 7, and again at 10, and again at 13, and once more at 15. Much later, we would travel back down when I was 29, this time my own nine year old son tagging along for all the fun. Many might say it is corny and all that, but I loved my Disney trips, as a kid, as a teen, and as an adult. But alas, one of my favourite rides, 20,000 leagues Under the Sea has since closed down.

    Anyhoo, just wanted to stop by and say hi to a fellow AtoZer. See ya 'round the web. All Things Kevyn.

    1. The trips get better with age if you ask me. We didn't start going on Disney holidays until I was close to 16 and every time I've gone back it's just gotten bigger and better. Many people think it's just a 'kiddie' theme park but it's so much more than that and has so much to offer. My parents (now in their 50s) went on their own a year or so back and they worried it would be 'weird' to be there as two adults but they had the best time and can't wait to do it all over again! Ah, the magic of Disney!

  4. I've been to Disney World twice--the first was the same year we moved to the US (1992), and the last time was in 2000. Even though we're on the same coast, and only (only?) about 10 hours away (by car), it's not a trip me, my wife, and our 6 kids can easily (or cheaply) make very often. It'd be nice to go back someday soon. If only for Epcot. I love that place! :)

    1. When I first started going to WDW Epcot was probably my least favourite park but now it's the one we spend the most time in! I've definatly fell in love with it as I've gotten older, especially all the food there hehe! We live a 10 hour flight away from the parks so I can only imagine how much more uncomfortable a 10 hour drive would be - especially with such a big family! I do know Lou Mongello has or is brining out a book filled with tips and tricks for saving money both before you go and whilst your in WDW, so it might be worth you checking out! http://www.wdwradio.com/shop/102-ways-save-money-walt-disney-world/

  5. Went to Orlando last year with my daughter who is almost 30 and had a great time as adults exploring...enjoyed the African safari and the fireworks at the end of the day. Visiting from A-Z...keep up the good work!

    1. Adult trips to WDW are so different and so much fun! Just goes to show that WDW really does has something for all ages! The fireworks are my fave way to end the day, followed by a dip in the hot tub hehe!
