Disney World Orlando is only a 6.5 hour drive from Florence, SC

We went to Disney World at the end of November 2017 and everything there was decorated with Christmas decorations already! We loved it and felt like it was the most perfect time to visit. The weather was mid 70s during the week while we were there. Flying was out of the question as it is only a 6.5 hour drive from Florence, South Carolina to Disney World! That is very manageable with a 3 year old and 1 year old. 

Here are some pictures of the Christmas themed decorations that I took: 
's Recommendations from our recent trip:
  1. Download the Disney World App to track how long each wait for each ride is. You can also reserve your fast pass from the app days ahead of time! All of the pictures that the park takes can also be recorded and tracked from the app as well. This is a very cool feature!
  2. If you have little kids, maybe going to 2 different parks is enough. We went to 3 in a span of 8 days (with a day break in between parks) and it was way too tiring. The kids were over it by the third park. Disney World has a total of 4 different theme parks: Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot and Hollywood Studios. 
  3. Book at a resort that usually is a timeshare stay for others. They let the public book reservations there for really cheap and usually have great amenities. If you are okay with saying 'no' a thousand times when they try to sell you a timeshare, it is worth it!
  4. It is a good idea to come to the Magic Kingdom during the day and then continuing on through the night to enjoy the pretty lights and see the Sleeping Beauty castle again. 
  5. My favorite part of all was the Pandora - The World of Avatar section of the Animal Kingdom! So if you are an Avatar movie fan, you must go to the Animal Kingdom! 
  6. Disney's Hollywood Studios was significantly small than the other parks but if you're a Star Wars fan, this is definitely worth the extra money!

About Me Originally from Southern California, we had moved here when my husband got out of the military and began his civilian work at the Duke Energy Power Plant in Hartsville. I had a hard time finding family-friendly resources online in Florence when we moved here in 2013 so I started writing and taking pictures of our adventures and places we've been. This website is a collection of several years of adventures. I hope this helps you as a transplant or new mom. I have two sons who were both born in Florence at the McLeod Hospital.
