After a long summer of fun, it’s time for the kids to head back to school, which means it’s time for moms to… play? One mom decided that the first day of school was the perfect time for a solo trip to Disney World.

Mom and Disney Blogger, Lisa DiNoto of The Castle Run took to Instagram to share her first day of school “mom field trip.” “This, my friends. This is what you do after you drop your kids off on the first day of school.⁣⁣ You get yourself a pin and you walk it around Magic Kingdom like some garden gnome on a world adventure,” she wrote in the post which features several pics of Lisa and Disney employees holding up her Disney pin, which reads, “I’m celebrating the 1st Day of School.”

Before you feel bad for DiNoto’s kids, she explains in her blog post that the family lives just ten minutes from Walt Disney World so the kids have visited the park many, many times. As her kids head off for another year of learning, it’s only fitting that the mom of two gets a well-deserved day of fun after momming all summer.

“They were excited for their first day at school and I was excited for some time alone. Pickup time came soon enough and all of us had lots of fun sharing the details of our day,” DiNoto told Good Morning America.
