I'm back! With some news...

I'm back from Florida! This holiday was my most eagerly anticipated holiday yet...  you'll already know this if you were following my Frantic about Florida posts. You'll all be pleased to know that it definitely didn't disappoint. This was my second visit to Walt Disney World in Orlando and I can confirm that I want to visit another 164 times during my lifetime. I could never ever get tired of it!

We stayed in Disney's Old Key West Resort, which is in the Downtown Disney area. The resort is beautiful and peaceful, sprawling across a massive piece of land. Just like everything else in Disney World, everything is immaculate and the service is always spectacular. I'll be writing a separate blog post on the resort, but here's an image to give you a vague idea!

So what was my main highlight?

There are always going to be masses of highlights in such an amazing place so here's a quick snapshot:

Space Mountain, meeting Duffy the Disney Bear, my four Ghirardelli's sundaes, Portobello, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, feeding a giraffe, Tower of Terror, Thunder Mountain, the Cheesecake Factory, the Magic Kingdom night show, the World Showcase, Sea World's dolphin show...
However, one special event stands out above all the others. I'll give you a clue...

Can you guess?

Neil proposed on the first day of the holiday at the Magic Kingdom (probably my favourite place in the whole world), and I said yes! As his father said, it would have been a very quiet holiday if I'd said no. I'll be writing a more detailed blog post on the engagement in the next week or so, but here are a few photos to whet your appetites! 

The venue...

The gifts...

And more gifts!

So as you can probably guess, I'm a very happy lady at the moment! I also have a wedding to plan... I've obviously already bought my wedding planner. 

I'll be writing a few more posts about Florida during the next few weeks so keep an eye on the blog. Posts will include the engagement, Disney's Old Key West Resort, the various theme parks, the food and the shopping! I'll probably still be blogging about this holiday in December. 

Have a magical day!

(I wish people actually said that to me every day rather than just when I'm in Disney World.)
