DISNAYWURLDLast week, my family took me on vacation to Orlando, Florida. We spent 12 days there (2 driving there, 2 driving back.) and spent a total of 8 days at theme parks. We went to DisneyWorld for 5 days and Universal Studios for 3 days. This post will be mainly about DisneyWorld, although I will post another about Universal Studios.

After two long days of driving, we arrived at our hotel. That night we left for Downtown Disney, a shopping area open to anyone. I had saved up my money for the past two months and had around $420. We walked around the shops, admiring the toys and displays.I spent about $90 on pins for trading around the park.

The next day we went to Hollywood Studios. We had 3 Fast Passes- one for Tower of Terror, Rockin’ Rollercoaster and Star Tours. I LOVED Rockin’ Rollercoaster!!!

The day after that, we went to Magic Kingdom. The fast passes for that day were for Peter Pan’s Flight, Splash Mountain and Space Mountain. I have had terrible experience with Space Mountain (The last time I went, we were going to ride it but it was late. We came back the next day to ride and it had closed down for 6 months…), so I was excited to ride it. My favorite ride in Magic Kingdom was The Haunted Mansion. We actually had a pretty funny time with that ride. The ride was supposed to be closed the whole time we were on vacation for renovation. I was disappointed because I had never ridden the ride. We came back to the Magic Kingdom on our last day to watch the fireworks display, and my dad noticed that the DisneyWorld Official App said that there was a 30 minute wait on the Haunted Mansion. We decided to check it out, just in case it was open. Sure enough, we were soon in line to ride.

The next day we were back at Hollywood Studios. Nothing really interesting happened then xD…The next two days were spent at Universal Studios (more on that on my next post).

On Thursday, we went to Epcot. We had Fast Passes for Mission: Space, Spaceship Earth and Soarin’. Three rides have tied for my favorites in Epcot. I absolutely LOVE Mission: Space, Soarin’ and Test Track!!! Friday was also spent at Universal Studios, so I’m going to skip over to Saturday (our last day DX).

We went to Animal Kingdom on Saturday. Our Fast Passes for the day were for Expedition Everest, the It’s Tough To Be A Bug show, and The Kali River Rapids (although we never rode it- we didn’t feel like getting wet). My favorite was definitely Expedition Everest. Soon, the day was over and we had to drive home. It was an amazing vacation- my favorite Christmas present ever!
