My journey through the world of writing and everything that lies in between…

The past six days were probably the most exhausting I’ve experienced in quite awhile. I honestly don’t think I’ve walked so much in such a short amount of time in my entire life! Legs and feet are still sore from it.

Still it was amazing. Magic Kingdom was definitely my favorite of all the parks but Epcot’s a close second (especially the World Pavilion! Ah, that will be the closest to being a world traveler I’ll ever hope to get any time soon).

Being Florida, it was about 95 every day we were there. There was a chance of rain every day but aside from a few sprinkles, it remained humid and hot. Not my favorite weather ever, but it was expected!

I have to say my favorite ride out of everything was Splash Mountain:

Splash Mountain!

Splash Mountain!

And I screamed like a baby going down that hill. Every. Single. Time. (We rode this ride probably close to a dozen times while we were there).

Another fun one was of course, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.

Other favorites were Pirates of the Caribbean (which has Jack Sparrow in it now), and the Buzz Lightyear ride in Tomorrowland, where you are actually shooting targets with your laser gun on the little spaceship. πŸ™‚ The first time we rode it, Phil maxed out his score…neither of us has any clue how he did that, but we think he got one of the “secret” targets or something. He scored pretty high the other four times we rode it but never quite hit the 999,999 mark again.

Oh and one of the best parts of Disney–I got toΒ  meet my two favorite princesses, Aurora and Belle. Aurora has been my favorite since before I can remember, when I would watch the movie every day and “act” it out. She was the best–and she really loved that my “prince” shares the same name as hers. I literally felt like I was six years old again!

I was probably the oldest girl in line but who cares? I’d do it again in a heartbeat πŸ˜›

I got to meet Princess Aurora!

I got to meet Princess Aurora!

We also got to eat in Cinderella’s Castle, although the experience wasn’t the best because of the waiter we got 😦 Oh well, that’s life right?

Oh and I can’t forget the best parade–SpectroMagic! It was so awesome!



I’ll post sometime this weekend on the rest of the parks–I don’t want this entry to get too long!

    • LOL, same here! Hubby tried to get me to hold my hands up but every time I’m cluctching on to the bar for dear life. In the first few pictures, I’m sitting there trying to hide farther down in the seat. πŸ˜›
