Got home on the 5th from my first WDW vacation. Weather was so-so. Started out nice, then went down, then warmed up by the time we left.
Between my camera and my dad's camera, we took close to 700 pictures.
Day 1 - November 30th. Left a cold and raining Ohio very early in the morning. Arrived in Orlando to 80 degree temps!!! I was in heaven! After dropping off our carry-on at our All-Star value resort, we headed out to our first park, Hollywood Studios. The wait times really weren't too bad, about 30 minutes tops for most rides (with the excpetion of TSMM - which had over an hour wait and no fastpasses available.)
My first impression was that it reminded me a bit of CA and so I made my first ride Tower Of Terror!
Loved the random drop sequences!!!! Made the ride even more enjoyable. But didn't like how the Bellhops weren't in character. It adds to the ride when they are stone faced making their safety spiel. Gives me the willies!
Next up, since it had a 10 minute wait (which ended up to be a walk-on), was Rockin Rollercoaster. LOVED it!!! I wasn't sure what to expect at first, but once we shot off it was awesome!
Anyone who knows me knows that I am a HUGE BatB fan, so next on my agenda was to see the show. I knew it wasn't much, but I had to see it.
Our dinner that night was at 50's Prime Time Cafe. My parents wanted to go back since they loved it when they went 5 years ago. Food was excellent, waiter was cute, and portion sizes were much bigger than I had expected. A friend told me I had to get the smores dessert, so I did. Wasn't disappointed.
After we walked around and took in the Muppet show, it was time for the Osborne lights to be turned on, so we hurried over and braved the mobs of people waiting for the same thing. Holy cow that was amazing!!!! I've only seen stuff like that on youtube so to see it huge and in front of my eyes was awesome!
I love Christmas lights, so to walk around and see them dancing and surrounding me was just remarkable.
After this we hit the Great Movie ride, which was very enjoyable.

When we got back to our room, Mousekeeping left this for us:
Coming up: Day 2 - Magic Kingdom!!
