The end of the year always gets me thinking. How did it all go? How does 2016 compare to the years that proceeded it? It was a year of mountainous highs and bottom-of-the-ocean lows. Like most people, I find it a lot easier to remember the negative. But the year that brought us the horrors of Brexit, also gave me a lot to smile about.
To spread a bit of 2016-positivity, I thought I’d share some of my top moments of the year. When I think about it, this year was actually a cracker.
The day had finally arrived! I really enjoyed our stay at Universal and I was surprised by how much I loved our hotel, Cabana Bay. All good things come to an end, though, and this one led to something even better: Disney World.
After a morning finishing off at Islands of Adventure, we got an Uber over to Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and started the second half of the holiday. Watch the vlog and then come back for my top tips and behind-the-scenes.
I’ve been thinking a lot about what I should put on my Walt Disney World bucket list for our 2016 holiday. Most online bucket lists are for first timers, like staying in a Disney hotel or visiting the resorts on the monorail loop. Others are sadly out of my price range, like the Chef’s menu at Victoria and Albert’s or getting a private tour guide. Since I have been lucky enough to visit the place where magic lives several times, I’m ready for the more advanced version without the huge price tag so I decided to put together my own list.
These are all the little things that we’re hoping to fit into our October 2016 holiday. We might not be able to squeeze them all into our jam-packed plan, but we’ll definitely give it a go. And if we don’t make it? Then we’ll just have to come back again in a few years. Sounds like the perfect excuse.
This year has been the most diverse of my life so far. I’ve been a student, traveller, intern, employee, Londoner, Sheffielder and a lot more inbetween. It’s been another great one, so I’m going to share some of the best bits with you.
