Today I'm joining in with Heidi from Fairy Footprints In The Sand. She hosts Magical Disney Sunday where you can link up your favorite Disney memories. Well, y'all know I love all things Disney! So in honor of my 17th anniversary that was yesterday, I'm going to share memories from our honeymoon at Disney World.
This was the first trip for both of us, and I fell in love! Disney World is truly a magical place! The picture below is from the inside of Splash Mountain. It's gorgeous inside the ride. It tells the story of Brer Rabbit with different scenes telling the story. This is a picture of a paddle wheeler with different characters singing Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah.
Do any of you remember River Country? It was the first water park at Disney World and was open from 1976 until 2001 when Disney decided to close it. It was supposed to be like an old fashioned swimmin' hole. It had water slides that looked like they were cut into the rocks, tire swings, and a sand bottom, just like a pond. We got to go there a few times before it closed.
We stayed at Dixie Landings Resort on our honeymoon. They have since changed the name of the resort to Port Orleans Riverside. I guess you could tell from the name that it was southern themed and on the river. We rented a pontoon boat while we were there and explored the waterways and resorts and were able to go all the way to Downtown Disney. This is a picture I took of us on the boat. We were way younger and my hubby was rockin' the mullet, lol!
Happy late Anniversary Ronnie!
