Mom Celebrates Back To School By Going To Disney World By Herself

Share on Facebook

It’s a new year for parents around the country. We are rejoicing in our morning to afternoon freedom and the sound of sweet silence. It’s back to school time and the couch-sitting, binge-watching, eating a meal in peace, and going to the bathroom alone celebrations have begun.

We’re all doing something to enjoy ourselves while our kids are back in school, but no parent has taken back to school celebrations to new heights like Lisa DiNoto, a mother of two who celebrated the first day of school by going to Disney World by herself. That’s right, a kid-free Disney adventure! Lisa is a parenting hero.

It’s not often a parent can enjoy the wonders of the happiest place on earth without their kids. But Lisa, being an Orlando local and Disney mom blogger, couldn’t think of a better way to start off the new school year. And I am in awe of her Disney World trip and epic pictures.

And after spending all summer trying to figure out what to do with your kids, It’s literally more fun than New Year’s Eve.

Microwave? Done. One million pencils? You got it.

I was probably talking about the first day of school with everyone I could.

But honestly, it’s a nice breath of fresh air to not have to deal with my kids bickering, asking for snacks every five minutes, and trying to come up with activities for them to do all summer.

There’s only so much I can do with a baby so I’ll choose to do nothing over anything else.

It’s a legit fantasy of mine, including being able to sleep through the night without interruptions.

I am so here for this.

A vacation would be great but even a night out is awesome.

In other words, I’m a fast fan and needed to know everything about what this mom did.  

Lisa deserves all of the mom awards for this.

We can all live vicariously through her.

The fact that she went alone is so epic.

“You get yourself a pin and you walk it around Magic Kingdom like some garden gnome on a world adventure.”, she posted.

She hit up Main Street and got to take pictures with Disney characters while holding her pin.

Though Lisa explained on her Disney-inspired blog that Snow White is not allowed to hold items or mock children for not being able to be there.

Lisa gushed about her meeting with the Fairy Godmother.

“People are going to start stopping you and telling you that you are life goals,” she wrote. “They will often be saddled with strollers and lots of tired children. Be gracious. Comfort them. Wish them a magical day…. and try not to skip away.”

Lisa’s solo Disney adventures have probably given other parents the idea that they too can enjoy Disney without their kids.

A break from the day to day of parenting is definitely needed.

She’s completely right. We forget how fantastic days like this can be and if we can all take some time, even if it’s just a few minutes,to take a mental break, it will all be for the better.

Take some notes because these are going to be fun for you.

Just think about it, a meal by yourself with no interruptions. Such a novel idea.

Trust me. An entire bowl of popcorn while watching a movie by yourself is not sad, it’s amazing.

You probably know this one already being that Target is very popular with moms, but I’m here to tell you to just go even if you don’t actually “need” anything.

This one is on my to-do list too.

This is the time to catch up on some reading too.

Diving in to Netflix is definitely one of my favorite ways to unwind.

No need to hide in the closet, just indulge in deliciousness out in the open.

A mental group for more than one person will go a long way.

As long as you’re taking some time for yourself, that’s all that matters.
