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

    Hi everyone.

    A little bit about this trip. I've been to WDW before back in 2003, but then it was strictly for WDW. This time, it was for Universal Orlando too.

    On June 4, we boarded a Delta Airplane at 10:30 for a trip to Orlando for 9 days at Disney and Universal with mickey Mouse Pal.

    Now, onto the show!

    DAY 1- ANIMAL KINGDOM

    At 9:00 A.M, we left the Caribe Cove resort for the first park on our experience: Animal kingdom

    I'm sorry about the size, but my photobucket seems to not want to post the size anymore correctly. Can somebody help?

    I'll get this TR up as soon as possible.\

    Thanks!

    Anyway, continuing.

    When we got there we met up Caesarboxfan at the gates right after the park opened.

    as the sign says

    We all agreed that the best strategy was to get a Fastpass for Expedition Everest out in the Asia area so we headed out to that area. On the way, we took a look at the park itself and decided to look at scenery.

    Anyway, we got our FP for Everest between 3:00 and 4:00 since waits was 30 minutes. Since it was early in the morning, we felt it would be appropriate to head on over to Dinosaur and ride it, so we headed on over to Dinoland USA for the ride.

    Although the ride uses the exact same ride system as does Indiana Jones, the ride is much like Indiana Jones- only bumpier. And it takes a picture of you.

    Hi everyone. Sorry this is taking so long.

    Back on the subject, we were on our way over to Africa to get FP's for Kail River Rapids.

    Below are some of the photos I took at the Festival of the Lion King. If you want my honest opinion, the show was meh. Sure the acrobats were nice, and the music was amazing, and the puppets were ok, but I wish they would have done something better.

    Hi everyone, and I'm continuing my Trip Report even though this is taking forever.


    After Festival of the Lion King, we felt it was time for lunch, so we headed out for lunch.

    In my review, this sandwhich was awesome! And I love the food there. Next time, I'll try the chicken.


    Anyway, we felt the need to go to Kali River Rapids to get Fastpasses.


    The wait for the ride was 60 minutes so we didn't hesitate.

    Expedition Everest is one of the best coasters I have been on at Disney World.


    After this, we had time before we were to see "Finding Nemo: The Musical" so Me and MMP killed some time.

    In my final thoughts about this musical, Finding Nemo was one of the cheesiest shows I have ever seen by Disney. The Aladdin musical at DCA is MUCH better than this.

    Before the park closed, we went on Kali River Rapids. You get wet, but TOO short.

    Overall, while Animal Kingdom is fun, it needs more rides period.

    DAY 2- MAGIC KINGDOM

    We woke up earlier today since Magic Kingdom was going to be having a lot to do than Animal Kingdom. We arrived there at about 9:00 A.M to get to the parks.

    Since MMP had never been to Magic Kingdom or Florida in general, I had to tell him that the Main Street is much bigger than at Disneyland. And it is.

    Charlie's Coke Corner on Main Street is almost like our Coke Corner. Also, the only similarity to Main Street like ours: the musical loops.

    We felt that the best idea was to head on out to Tomarrowland and get a Fastpass for Space Mountain since the attraction was obviously going to be busy.

    If you want my opinion, it does offer some surprises, but the show itself was alright. Not good, not terrible, it just wasn't. I do like Stitch though.


    Next, was Monster's Inc Laugh Floor.

    Monster's Inc Laugh Floor was actually pretty good. I especially liked it when they shared some of the jokes that people text messaged. HINT: There was a Lady Gaga joke in there.


    When we got out, our Fastpasses for Space were ready

    Space Mountain here in Florida was horrible. It is basically Matterhorn indoors. Do yourself a favor and stick to the California one.


    It was getting kind of late, so we headed on over to Adventureland to go get a Fastpass for Splash Mountain.

    At the Pecos Bill Cafe, they had burgers, salad, chicken, and more. I chose Taco Salad

    What makes it even cooler is the fact that you can put toppings on it.

    Afterwards, we went on over to The Country Bear Jamboree.

    In my thoughts regarding this show, I'll have to admit that this was pretty good. If we came back, I would do it again.

    Afterwards, we headed on over to the Haunted Mansion

    Hello? Anybody home?

    Haunted Mansion here in Florida has a more interactive queue and I got to admit that with it's ending regarding the animated hitchhiking ghosts, this wins hand down as being better than California's.

    After haunted Mansion, we still had a Fastpass for Splash Mountain so we headed on over there for the ride.
