I’m an anomaly of sorts, and you know I keep it real here, so let’s start off by saying that I’ve never been a Disney World fan. The never-ending lines! The massive crowds! The not-so-yummy food! The aching feet! The meltdowns! — well, it all just overwhelms me. But that all changed after staying at the Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World. Talk about a Tragic Magic Kingdom game changer!

You see, my son Yiani turned 6 on Thanksgiving Day and when asked what he wanted for his birthday, he answered with a resounding “A trip to Disney!” Somehow, I’ve successfully evaded going to Disney the past three years, but I really wanted to pull through for my kid because that’s what being a mom is all about. #Sacrifice

To alleviate any previous qualms I’ve had with visiting Disney World, I figured a stay at the brand spankin’ new, five-star Four Seasons Resort Orlando would elevate the experience. And boy, was I right. First off, the property is sprawling with beautiful decor, three delicious restaurants, a kid’s club, luxe spa, an inner tube-filled lazy river and two chic boutiques (replete with Missoni mouse ears!). Um, amazing. So up my alley.

We started Day One off with a character breakfast alongside Mickey, Minnie and Goofy at the property’s Ravello restaurant. I hit the buffet so many times (I blame the Nutella-smothered pancakes) it was downright criminal. We then hopped on a convenient bus from the hotel and made our way to the Magic Kingdom where the kids had their fill of roller coasters, cotton candy, popcorn and. And this chick crushed hard on the Johnny Depp wax replicas inside the Pirates of the Caribbean ride like a total creep. 

On Day Two, we made our way to Disney Springs (formerly known as Downtown Disney) where my husband, our family’s chief Disney devotee, got his fill of Disney swag such as Star Wars luggage, Mickey Mouse salt and pepper shakers and Legos galore. After said shopping spree (I made out with a single mug), we meandered over to Epcot and rode a ton of rides and quaffed a few brewskies.

That night we were exhausted and ordered room service (shoutout to the inventor of this life-changing amenity!) and fell asleep at 9 p.m. On our departure day, Sebastian played a round of golf with Yiani, Ava played with 6 other kiddos at the Kid’s Club and this mama git her Zen on at the spa. Yes, I went to the spa! I almost keeled over in sheer delight.

Let’s just say my perspective on Disney World has certainly taken a 180 — and dare I say it? I hope my son asks to go return for his 7th birthday. #I’mAFan

    You crack me up, your depiction of the whole trip’s events was funny!

    Every time I think of Disney or I am in Disney, no lie, I think of you and like you said you’re an anomaly, because then I ask “who doesn’t like Disney?” :)~ but I do agree with the long lines and crappy food situation!

    Life goal – Disney Trip like the Tettamantis! #fosho
