Disney World offers people of all ages so many opportunities.
You can travel the world at Epcot.
and the United Kingdom. (Where they totally had an entire shelf dedicated to the Harry Potter!)
You can jet into space, see the future, explore the old frontier and fantasy at Magic Kingdom. And let me tell you, no one does story rides like Disney. The imagineers know how to capture the essence of classic Disney stories and retell them with music, visuals and the occasional voice over. Phillar Magic is an awesome 3D show featuring the hilarious Donald Duck and showcasing some of Disney's best songs.Magic Kingdom is also home to one of my three favorite Disney attractions - Space Mountain.
You can go on the Rock 'n' Roller coaster featuring Aerosmith at Hollywood Studios - an excellent ride (one of my top three at all Disney parks).
You can also see the infamous stone table from Narnia. (That's Ramona, also she's representing her (wishful) Ravenclaw pride if you note the lanyard around her neck. She REALLY wishes she wasn't a Hufflepuff!)
You can watch animators create before your very eyes or participate in your very own drawing lesson.
Hollywood studios also features Fantasmic every Thursday night. This isn't a show I'd miss, if your in the area. A brilliant usage of water and video projection, actors, music and fireworks. Seriously, awesome.
And I'd say the other 8000 people in the stands agreed with me - if the cheering was anything to go by.
Also, they set the entire lake on fire. I knew then they were after my (pyromaniac) heart.
Animal Kingdom, though, is my favorite park. You can see baby gorillas (clinging to their mothers), baby elephants (rampaging around the watering hole with a branch wrapped in their trunk), baby warthogs (annoying their mother, I think, with their frolicking) and baby giraffes:
Animal Kingdom is home to the third of my three favorite rides - Expedition Everest where an encounter with the ancient Yeti will send your troop backwards down a rickety coaster!
If that isn't enough, you can watch gorgeous birds perform and swoop over your head (one nearly nicked Ramona's ear), you can explore ancient ruins in Asia and go on an African safari. Throughout your adventures you'll encounter numerous species, here's a SMALL sample:
and Lions (who have a striking resemblance to my pretty kitty....okay just kidding, but she's got presence too.)
All in all, Disney World was Fantasmic! (haha, get it?.... Okay, I know that was lame but...you could be kind and give me points for effort.)
After leaving, I have a vicious desire to watch all my favorite Disney movies. As soon as I get settled in at school you know what'll be occupying my free time (after I catch up on reading Mockingjay, Clockwork Angel and Paranormalcy, of course!).
Have any of you been to either Disney Land or Disney World? What was your favorite park? Favorite rides? Best or Worst experience?
