It’s almost time to enjoy Spring Break.  From short trips in the car to flights to warm destinations, the Midwest wants to get out of town to enjoy some time off.

For Spring Break 2022, I took my child on her, and yes my, first trip to Disney World.  Yes, it was packed.  I think I said “Ope, sorry” about 10,000 times.

Leading up to the trip I was getting worried. I made the mistake of clicking on one story about a bad trip experience from some nonsense “Magic” website.  So then for about a month, I kept seeing horror stories of travel, lines, and prices.  I finally had enough of that nonsense and hid that website from my newsfeed.  I was trying, to go in with a positive attitude…but I also, knew, there would be challenges.

Saturday (March 12) we arrived in Orlando but did not go to a park.  It was already a long day of travel with the drive to Chicago so we just hung out at the resort.

Sunday was Magic Kingdom day 1.  Monday, Epcot.  Tuesday Magic Kingdom day 2.  Wednesday it was time for me to fly home.  The child’s spring break was Princesses and Minnie and it was absolutely worth every long line and dollar spent.

Having done some research before going, and then living it for 5 days, these are the best tips I can give you before you go to the most magical place on earth where you can be a kid again for possibly the first time.
