Where’s the best place to celebrate the 4th of July? According to our Vice President of Sales, Kim Gregory, it’s in your RV camping at The Most Magical Place on Earth. This summer Kim and her husband Jake loaded up their 5 kids, along with the family dog Willie, and hit the road for a 9 day road trip from Dallas to Orlando.
The Campsites at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort was home for Kim’s family for 5 incredible nights and they loved every second of it. The triplets especially enjoyed riding around in the golf-cart catching a cool breeze as they toured around the resort. Kim and her family spent their first day setting up their temporary home, enjoying the amazing amenities at Fort Wilderness Resort, playing corn-hole, and of course grilling some amazing food. The next day they began their assault on the parks beginning with Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Everyone had a great time seeing all the wild animals on Disney’s Kilimanjaro Safaris. I think the only thing the kids enjoyed more that day were the snacks. But who can blame them? Snacks are life.
The second day The Gregory Crew traveled the world at Epcot followed by a wild and wet third day at Blizzard Beach. Disney World is a truly magical place, but Florida was scorching hot so they were all relieved to spend an entire day cooling down at the water park. The triplets gave it 5 stars. They loved the cool water slides, the wave pool, and the yummy ice cream. Kim and her family saved the best for last by spending their final day at Disney’s Magic Kingdom. And they made sure to not miss a thing. Everyone loved the rush of Big Thunder Mountain, they were dizzy with joy spinning around in giant teacups at the Mad Tea Party, and they all squealed with delight as they plummeted down Splash Mountain.
Every day after spending all morning at the parks Kim and her family were able to spend their afternoons relaxing at the pet-friendly campsite and cooling off in the resort pool. It was the perfect way to recover from the crowds and spend quality time together. They played games, cooked dinner together, and of course chowed down on warm, gooey smores.
All 7 (plus Willie) lived in the Entegra for 9 days. They traveled through 5 states – Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida. They spent 4 and ½ days driving for a total of 35 hours and over 2,500 miles. All to spend 5 nights camping at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and 4 days at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot, and Blizzard Beach. And that all added up to countless memories that their family will cherish for years. Disney World is known as The Most Magical Place On Earth, but being able to camp in their RV definitely made it even more magical for The Gregorys.
