Thrilled to share How to Do Walt Disney World Resort in One Weekend with you today!
I had the opportunity to go to Walt Disney World with some of my blogging friends a few weeks ago and let me tell you, we did it ALL!! Can’t wait to share our weekend with you. Let me show you what can be done from Thursday-Sunday.
We started our first day at Magic Kingdom. Is there anywhere else more magical? Love it here so much. Don’t forget to utilize the photographers around the park, you’ll get so many great pictures to remember your vacation.
Every angle of the Cinderella Castle is just perfect. Love strolling by and of course snapping pictures 🙂 After photos it was time for Seven Dwarf’s Mine Train. Be sure to utilize the My Disney Experience app to organize your Fastpasses. Helps get you through the lines and on more rides!
Seven Dwarf’s Mine Train is a favorite. Love this!
One of my favorite things to do at Disney is….EAT. Eat all the things. First up was the Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich with Chocolate Hazelnut Spread from Sleepy Hollow. Yah, it was amazing.
After a ride on Pirates of the Caribbean we made our way to the Dole Whips! The Dole Whip Float is my absolute favorite. When it’s hot at the parks, there’s nothing better.
A few more rides like Haunted Mansion, Peter Pan’s Flight and “it’s a small world” then it was time for some treats at Gaston’s Tavern. Giant cinnamon rolls, chocolate croissants and Gaston’s Brew were some of the things we shared. All fantastic 🙂 Right around lunchtime we made our way to Epcot!
We grabbed a reservation at Via Napoli for lunch. Their pizza is some of my favorite pizza ever. This Classic Margherita is AMAZING.
We shared this gorgeous White Pizza too.

After we explored Epcot for a few hours, we got ready for one of the most beautiful dinner experiences. We enjoyed the newly renovated Flying Fish located on Disney’s Boardwalk. Every single dish that was brought out, was so carefully prepared and unmistakably delicious. I ordered the Wagyu Filet Mignon and let me tell you, it was one of the best I’ve had. The appetizers blew me away as well. Don’t miss the Blue Crab Bisque , Yellowfin Tuna, Wild Gulf Shrimp and Kurobuta Pork Belly. Be sure to get your reservations when visiting the parks. Flying Fish is a must.
Friday morning, we had the pleasure of having breakfast at Be Our Guest Restaurant located in Magic Kingdom. You really feel like you are walking into Beast’s enchanted castle. The detail is simply a must-see. Breakfast and lunch are served quick service style and dinner is an unforgettable sit down style.
As you walk in, you are greeted by friendly Cast Members who guide you in the right direction. Beast’s Castle details are so GRAND and remarkably stunning. Take a good look around during your visit.
For breakfast and lunch you walk up to a computer like touch screen and select your meal choices. You go find your own table and your server magically finds you!
There are three different dining rooms to choose from. Each absolutely beautiful. I really love The Castle Gallery, with Belle and Beast dancing in the center of the room with the most beautiful art work on the walls to enjoy. Each room has a different theme such as Beast’s West Wing, which is a dark dining room with dramatic ripped curtains and be sure to watch the painting on the wall and the rose. The Grand Ballroom has dramatic high, domed ceiling, chandeliers and beautiful murals on the ceiling.
I ordered the Croque Madame and a Croissant Donut on the side…no calories at Disney right? Ha! We also shared pastries and of course the Master’s Cupcake with the ever so delicious “Grey Stuff” topping. What a breakfast! It really was all amazing.
Later in the afternoon we made our way to Hollywood Studios. We went straight to Hollywood’s Tower of Terror. Complete terror, but I love it! We also rode Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith. So crazy fun.
More fun treats! This is the Carrot Cake Whoopie Pie from Beverly Sunset that knocked my socks off. That cream cheese filling, so good.
This chocolate filled Butterfinger Cupcake from Starring Rolls Cafe was my favorite. Talk about a treat!
How adorable are all of our cupcakes?! Hollywood Studios has some fun treats.
It was off to dinner at Animal Kingdom’s newest restaurant called Tiffins. This experience blew me away! We started with drinks and gorgeous appetizers at The Nomad Lounge. Ordered a lovely curry soup to start, the halibut for dinner and gorgeous dessert. The entire experience was so memorable. I look forward to taking my family in the future.
After dinner, we went over Magic Kingdom for the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. This is a special event during Halloween Time that requires a separate ticket. What a night. Having only done Mickey’s Halloween Party at Disneyland, this was such a memorable night taking in all of the excitement. So many things to do and see. The Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular Show was too fun!
The next morning it was off to breakfast at Trattoria al Forno located on Disney’s Boardwalk. I ordered the Pouched Eggs which is served over top soft polenta and topped with a red sauce. This might be one of my favorite breakfast dishes to date. We shared quite a few dishes and I’m telling you everything was beautiful and delicious. Yes, we had to try the French fries at breakfast, lol! They were so crunchy yet tender, I’m still dreaming about them. Loved this dining experience.
We made our way over to Epcot’s Food & Wine Festival. You could literally spend a few days just doing the festival and sample your way through each Marketplace. I was able to sample about a dozen different Marketplaces and each was absolutely delicious!
After the Food & Wine Festival, we had to ride the very popular Frozen Ever After. Here we are on our boat 🙂 We also couldn’t miss Test Track and Soarin’ Around The World. Epcot has some of my favorite rides! Not kidding, the new Soarin’ is absolutely stunning.
We had to try Ample Hills Creamery on Disney’s Boardwalk. That Gooey Buttercake Ice Cream was out of control amazing….and how cute is the chocolate chip cookie cone?
The Boardwalk Bakery next door to Ample Hills Creamery had this adorable Mickey Oreo Cupcake. Cuteness overload! For dinner we went to Morimoto Asia in Disney Springs. Unforgettable dining experience…and you never know when Chef Morimoto will be hanging out in his restaurant. We got to say hi and take a quick picture with him.
We went to Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast at Cape May Cafe for our last morning. What a fun Character breakfast! We got pictures with each Disney Character dressed in the cutest beach wear. They were dancing and having a great time with the guests. Can we talk about the buffet area for a minute? Pretty much anything you could ever want. Crepe Bar, eggs, potatoes, French toast, bacon, sausage…it goes on and on. So much fun!
After breakfast, we checked out of our rooms, got our luggage squared away and made our way to Disney’s Animal Kingdom. This park is so gorgeous with it’s lush green trees all around the walkways. I really love it here.
As you walk through Animal Kingdom’s entrance and head towards Kilimanjaro Safari, you’ll see this very grand Tree of Life in the center of the park. It really is a sight to see. The details on the trunk are spectacular.
Mickey Pretzel, one last Dole Whip, a ride on Expedition Everest and Kilimanjaro Safari, then it was on our way back home! This was a weekend I will never forget. So many adventures with the best of memories. Nothing like a Disney vacation, can’t wait to plan my next visit! Be sure to follow our adventure on Instagram under #DeliciousDisney.
