It’s been a whirlwind of a week, am I right? Well after the crazy fun time I had over spring break, I took about a week to get my crap together. But now I’m back with a spring break recap for you all!
When my roommate and I first started planning our senior spring break trip, we knew we absolutely wanted to go to Universal Studios in Orlando. Harry Potter has been such a bonding experience for us since we first met freshman year (she literally read the entire series to me out loud because I had never read them before), so seeing the Wizarding World of Harry Potter was priority number one. Disney was sort of an add on because my roommate had never been, and I hadn’t been in 4-5 years. Due to budget constraints, we decided to buy tickets for one day at Universal Studios and Island of Adventure so that we could experience the entirety of Harry Potter World, and the one day at Disney’s Magic Kingdom because it’s a classic, duh! In all seriousness, we chose Magic Kingdom because it had the most rides and attractions that we wanted to do.
Once everything was booked, I immediately started planning outfits in my head. Although let’s be real, I’ve been planning these in my head for months.
For Universal I went for a modern day Hogwarts student vibe, and personally I think I nailed it. In case you were wondering, I’m a Gryffindor. Shout out to my fellow Gryffindors! I’ve had this Hogwarts t-shirt for awhile now, and was grateful for the excuse to wear it! I paired it with this black circle skirt so that I could be comfortable and still look cute (don’t worry, I wore shorts underneath it!) The weather while we were at Universal was very stormy, and we actually experienced a few showers while we were there. Because of this my denim jacket not only completed the outfit, but also came in handy. I love how the patches and pins just added some color and personality to my outfit. To finish the look I brought my cream, leather backpack.
By far, this park was more than I could have ever hoped for. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter was absolutely magic. It truly felt like we had been transported to Hogwarts. Because of the weather, it was not busy at all. We barely had to wait for any rides, and the experience was completely worth it.
We went to Disney the day after the storm, so it was much cooler due to the cold front that the weather brought in. Yet another reason I was glad I brought my denim jacket. I have had this Alice in Wonderland t-shirt for so long. Luckily it still fit and came in handy for this Disney inspired outfit. I paired it with these peachy pink linen shorts from Old Navy to bring out the pink in the shirt. My goal as soon as I got into Magic Kingdom was to find the perfect pair of ears to go with my outfit. I definitely lucked out, because these vintage Minnie Mouse inspired ears matched the colors in my outfit perfectly.
As far as the day went, it was really nice outside which was great. However, because of this is was crazy crowded. We waited 2 hours for one ride. TWO HOURS! It was brutal. But when we got to watch Cinderella’s Castle light up at the end of the day it was so magical that it melted all our stress from the day away and made it all worth it.
Overall, I had an amazing time over spring break. This trip was a long time coming, and I’m so glad my roommate and I finally did it. Even though we were exhausted by the end of it (and a little broke) I believe that the memories we made were one’s that will last.
