Day at Magic Kingdom 2015


Last summer my family and I went on vacation in Florida and we did one day at Magic Kingdom and one day at Disney Springs. My family and I have been to Magic Kingdom many times but this was the best day that we have had there.  We went on all the rides that we wanted to and didn’t wait in line for too long.

Here is a review of our day:

We woke up around 5:25. My family and I stay in a condo that is on the Gulf of Mexico so it’s about a 2 hour drive to Disney. We then got ready and left around 6:20.

We got to Magic Kingdom so early that taking a bus there was our only option. The monorail and ferry weren’t open yet. By the time we got in front of the train station it was around 8:20 which was great because I wanted to see the Welcome Cermony.  During the welcome ceremony most of the Disney character come riding in on the train and there is lots of music and dancing.  It finishes with a countdown to the park opening and a few fireworks!

Cellcom Half Marathon Race Recap

I ran my second half marathon a few weeks ago in Green Bay, WI. The Cellcom Half Marathon had a great course that was pretty flat and even went through Lambeau Field! The race didn’t go exactly as I had planned but I still got a good finish time.

The race started at 8:00am so I got up early-around 5:30am and had breakfast right away.  I had buckwheat waffles with applesauce, a banana, and a little bit of peanut butter. I wanted to make sure that I was fueled for the race. I then got ready, used my roller, and stretched in the hotel room. My family and I left around 6:45 to go to the start of the race which was at Lambeau Field.

I warmed up for the race mainly by walking there and on a short jog back from the bathrooms. I then made my way to the corral around 7:50 and weaved through the crowd to get closer to the front.

Disney World Parks Packing List 

Besides running I also love Disney and Disney World. I have taken many vacations to Disney World and I just love it and have a lot of fun while I’m there. I have developed a packing list of what I bring with me into the parks and I’m sharing it with you to help maximize your time and fun in the parks!

I like to bring a backpack with me while I’m in Disney World. I don’t mind carrying a backpack and it hasn’t been a problem on any of the rides (On the roller coaster rides like Expedition Everest and Rockin Roller Coaster I would wrap the backpack straps around my ankles so my backpack wouldn’t fly out). If you don’t want to carry everything around all day there are lockers that you can rent inside the park.

Recently I have been using the backpack pictured below which I got  from one of the shops in Adventureland in Magic Kingdom.

I then fill up my backpack with the following items:

Choosing Your Major-Career Shadowing

Hi everyone! Sorry I have missed a few posts; I was busy preparing for my race, job shadowing, and just relaxing!  I need a certain number of observation hours of physical therapists in order to get into physical therapy school.  While I just finished my freshmen year of college, I decided to start early and have already gotten some of my hours done.  This has brought me to the topic of today’s post which is career shadowing.  Career shadowing/observation is a great tool for high school and college students to use to help determine a major and a future career.
