I work at Disney World as a tour guide! I used to work Fantasyland Attractions; my second College Program was at Epcot as a Character Attendant. I'm effervescent. The title of my blog is taken from Meg Cabot's series, The Princess Diaries. Specifically, Volume 10: Forever Princess: "I know. I'm pathetic. A pathetic unicorn."
You won’t always be right, so just be honest. When you’re in a relationship, it’s a really important thing that you’re open and honest, and talking and communicating. My Mom and Dad have been married for 30 years and they’re best friends and they talk all the time about everything.
Disney Parks Blog: “101 dogs walk the green carpet at first-ever Disney Side Dog’s Day at Magic Kingdom Park”:)
Sequoia Lodge is a mid-range priced hotel on the opposite side of Lake Disney to Disney Village. This means it’s within easy walking distance (15 mins) of the parks, but there’s also a free shuttle bus if you decide you want to save your energy!
It’s a 3 star hotel with 1011 rooms. The lodge is built to resemble the lodges in the American National Parks, so there’s lots of wood around! This is one of my favourite hotels at the resort, especially during the winter as it’s very cosy and welcoming. The roaring log fire in the bar is particularly lovely on those dark winter nights. It’s great at Christmas because the theme lends itself really well to that time of year.
The hotel was recently renovated and many rooms now include subtle hints to Bambi in the decorating.
There are 2 restaurants in the hotel, Hunter’s Grill and Beaver Creek Tavern. These are situated opposite each other on the ground floor immediately as you enter from Lake Disney.
The Golden Forest Club
You can pay a little extra to enjoy the facilities on this private floor. You get a private check in desk, breakfast with the Disney Characters (until Nov 14) and a private lounge with hot and soft drinks served all day and snacks in the afternoon. You will also receive one fastpass per day per person. Suite guests receive the coveted VIP fastpass which gets you unlimited fastpass access for your entire stay.
Did You Know?
Thousands of trees around the hotel area were imported from the west coasts of America and Canada, along with hundreds of it’s namesake Sequoias.
"I’ve sold fish in the market for the last thirty years, because I never had the chance to go to university. Recently my daughter graduated from Makerere, which is one of the best schools in the country. When I walked through the gates to attend her graduation, I felt so happy, because I never thought I’d see the inside of a university."
