    Re: Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando- DING DING DING DING DING DING!!

    We headed on over the Splash Mountain and thankfully we did because it was 80 minutes.

    In my thoughts regarding Splash Mountain, I have mixed feelings about it. Even though it gets points for better log seating, it gets a big minus for lesser details to the scenes which you could find in California. So California wins hands down.


    After Splash, we needed to cool down. So we headed on over to Fantasyland to see Mickey's Philharmagic.

    In my thoughts regarding Mickey's Philharmagic, this was a great show! Donald really knows how to have fun with the Disney movies.

    After Philharmagic, we had a FP for Peter Pan so we headed on over there automatically.

    Peter Pan's Flight here at Magic Kingdom is the same at Disneyland. However, it wins as being better because it's longer, more extravagant, and better planned out.

    Afterwards, we went to get a Fastpass for WInnie the Pooh. While over there, i got some photos

    After a second trip to Philharmagic, a familiar face was outside greeting guests: Peter Pan.

    When visiting him, I shared my Mickey straw to him and we told him we saw him at the Philharmagic, to which he replied "I was the best thing there."

    This Snow White gets big points for not only being better than ours in terms of story, but also having an actual ending instead of ending abruptly.

    This small world is a joke. This was a big and I mean a BIG letdown. The countries are not labled, and not to mention it felt like it was all the same.

    Another thing the Magic Kingdom gets points for: no Dead Ends!!!

    Pirates here at Magic Kingdom was very meh. The Pirates at Disneyland wins hands down because it's longer, has two lifts and two drops.


    It was getting very late, so we headed on over to Tomarrowland but we went to Main Street for the Parade. I'll be honest with you: I'm not a fan of the parade.


    After the parade, we went on over to Winnie The Pooh since the Fp's were up.

    Autoia is better straightforward.


    After the Fireworks were done, we headed on over to Jungle Cruise for a ride since the lines were short.

    After this, it was time to head out. In my thoughts regarding Magic Kingdom, it's good bceause it's spread out, but Disneyland is still better.

    DAY 3 DISNEY'S HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS

    On this day, we headed on over to Disney's Hollywood Studios since this one didn't have a lot to do.

    Our first stop was to head on over to Pixar Place to pick up fastpasses for the Toy Story Midway Mania, but by the time we got there it was 80 minutes long to wait, and the Fastpasses were already sold. Oh well, we have it at home in California so we headed on over to Sunset Boulevard for FP for Tower of Terror.

    Since we were in the area, we headed on over to Rock n Roller Coaster and got Fastpasses for 8:00. We decided to go on Single Rider Line which wasn't too bad.

    The doors were made out of stone glass fabric....or whatever the heck it is.


    If you want my opinion, Rock N Roller Coaster is one of my favorite attractions in the resort. I know it's a little short, but I love Aerosmith and the visuals are amazing.


    So after this, we decided to head on over to the Star Tours area to get Fastpasses or wait in line.

    The first time we went on, we got Hoth and Princess Leia with us going to Naboo.

    After Star Tours, we were getting pretty hungry and we had two choices: Primetime Diner or Sci-Fi Diner. After a look at the two, we made reservations and enjoyed the Sci-Fi Diner.

    Sci-Fi Diner was a great resteraunt to go to. I would do it again.


    After food, we felt that the best idea was to head on over to the Great Movie Ride.

    Having been on this before, this ride needs to be updated with new movies and now. Even though it was innovative, it still needs to be updated.


    After Great Movie Ride, we headed on over to the Backlot to see the Lights, Motor, Action stunt show. While on the way, I took these photos of the last remnants of the backlot.

    Re: Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando- DING DING DING DING DING DING!!

    Hey, because my photos won't load onto here for some reason, I'll have to write down the rest of what I did.

    After Lights, Motors, Action, we headed on over to the Backlot Tour. Even though it is nice it needs to be scrapped altogther.

    Afterwards, we headed on over to the One Man's Dream movie and wow it was great! Full of emotions, and all the displays of the models for various Disney attractions was awesome. After that we got a FP and headed on over to Tower of Terror.

    Now, if you want my opinion, I do think that while it is higher and it does have a longer ride portion with the 5th dimension, the drops there are much more smoother than the one in California. SO this wins hands down.

    After that, we made another trip to star Tours and rode it again.

    Food came and we ate at the ABC Commissary where I had a delicious Curry bowl. And one more ride on rock n Roller COaster.

    DAY 4- EPCOT


    Instead of photos, I did a YouTube video tribute to Future World.




    And one I did for The American Adventure

    And here is our visit to the UK Pavilion:
