Until Orlando picked up the ever popular Dapper Day event that had been going on in Disneyland for several years. Now they were on to something! So I made bowties for my husband, packed up a few dresses, and hit the road. Fortunately, we only live a little under 3 hours away so it's a pretty pleasant trip. We arrived at the Pop Century resort, checked in and hit the park.
There was definitely a different feel during this trip than my previous visit. At first I thought it was how complimentary everyone was (including the staff). Then I thought it was the perfect weather that evening. Or maybe even the magical accidental private boat ride during the fireworks. Then I realized it was more than all of these things put together. What I realized is this was the first vacation I had in 15 years where I allowed myself to not worry about anything. Not one single thing! It was liberating! We enjoyed a full 3 days of worry free happiness. I'm a total Disney convert now. We will be going back to Dapper Day in the Fall for sure. And maybe a couple times before then.
Part of the reason for our trip was to help facilitate a marriage proposal. It went off without a hitch and the bride-to-be was completely surprised. Luckily, the lovely Mr. and Mrs. Royer of the "Meet The Royers" vlog captured the entire thing beautifully. Watch the gorgeous video here!
