#tbt Walt Disney World Trips

We're down to only 50 days until Walt Disney World's 50th Anniversary!

I've been so excited about this major milestone for years.  While I'm sad that Eliot and I won't be there to celebrate in person on October 1st, as we originally planned, I feel comfortable with our decision.  Between the ongoing pandemic and the delta variant, trying to pay things off, preparing to open new businesses and working towards getting our puppies, we've got enough on our plate!  But I still want to celebrate!!!  I've got a bunch of things planned over the next few months.  And Eliot and I will be going to WDW for the 50th Anniversary at least once during the 18 month celebration.  In the meantime, I'm going to be celebrating 50 years of magic at home!  

I thought I'd kick off my at home celebrations with a special Throwback Thursday of an overview of all the trips that I've taken to Walt Disney World through the years!  I was blessed enough to be there with my parents and brother for both the 20th and the 25th anniversary celebrations (both pictured above) so I thought it would be fun to reminisce a little.  I hope you enjoy taking this stroll down memory lane with me!

(Note: I couldn't find photos from a few of the early trips, but I know there are some.  If I come across them at some point, I'll update this post!)
