I spent Spring Break in Disney World and I regret nothing

It was magical

While most college students travel to Cabo, Punta Cana, or Cancun for Sprang Break for a week to enjoy their last moments of freedom before Dean’s Date and finals, I decided to take a slightly unconventional trip during my break. That’s right, for three spring breaks running, I decided to travel with my family and best friend to Disney World.


During junior year of high school and the last two years of Princeton, visiting each park in Disney World was always the highlight of my break and semester. From the first time traveling to Disney when I was 17, I was and am still convinced that it is the happiest place on Earth.

From dancing with Pluto at a parade in Magic Kingdom in high school, walking through Diagon Alley and basically fulfilling all of my childhood dreams in Universal Studios freshman year of Princeton, and finally visiting 10 countries in the span of three hours at the World Festival in Epcot just this week, I can honestly say that I couldn’t have imagined a better time.


And while getting to hang out with my friends on the beach, sipping away on delicious drinks and enjoying the lovely contrast between Caribbean weather and the freezing temperatures of the winter all are super appealing, Disney World is a completely different experience.

For someone who just entered her 20s, adulthood and responsibilities and career are fast-approaching as time is flying, and Disney World is a chance to grasp onto childhood for as long as possible. It’s where a kid can be a kid and where an adult (or someone almost there!) can enjoy time away from the scary world of finals or bills or jobs.

Next spring break will be another Disney park for me, and I can’t wait for it.
