Trip Report

Walt Disney World

July 20-30, 2011

A Walt Disney World trip report and photo highlight from July 23-30, 2011.

Just over a week ago, my girlfriend and I returned from a week-long trip to Walt Disney World.  This was her first trip to the Disney theme parks and something like my thousandth.  Okay, maybe that was an exaggeration.  We both had a great time and can't wait to return to central Florida.

As normal in the middle of the summer, the weather was steamy hot and humid each day with the constant threat of afternoon pop-up thunderstorms.  Only one of our days really saw any rain, and one evening in the Magic Kingdom we were treated to an impressive lightning show while waiting for the start of the "Wishes" fireworks show.

And yes, even though I was just there this past February, there were several NEW experiences waiting on this trip.

Let's take a look at each of the parks and see what it was like a couple of weeks ago.
