Here’s my take on the Micechat WDW trip. Now mind you I hadn’t been to WDW in 10 years so a lot has been added and that was my main goal, to do the stuff I hadn’t done before, and I accomplished this task with no problem!. So here it is, my trip report, for the new stuff I got to see and do.
Magic Kingdom – I truly enjoyed Mickeys NSSHalloween. We all had a blast trick or treating for candy, LOTS of candy. The fireworks were great. The Halloween parade – not so much. Philharmagic was FUN! Spectromagic was pretty! And I had the song stuck in my head the whole flight home. Stitchs Escape was a BUST and that’s 15 minutes of my life I will never get back. Buzz I didn’t like because you cant pull the guns from their holsters and the targets don’t light up at all so its hard to know if you’ve hit anything. After only getting 500 points at the halfway point I gave up and just looked at the ride elements, which were kinda card-boardy and boring. I like DLands Buzz much better.
Cinderellas Castle, all Halloweenified.
Final ride of the trip - Big Thunder. VFan peeking her head over Scarlions shoulder, Mr PixieChick, XHarryB, G4 and PixieChick
Epcot (Future World) – Mission Space is AWESOME and if you just keep your head back and look straight ahead at the video monitor you’ll do just fine! It wasn’t half as bad as all the warnings lead you to believe. Test Track was FUN FUN FUN but I only got to ride it once Nemo was very cute and I cant wait to see how they add those elements into the Subs. And the seagulls made me giggle every time I walked by them. The Journey into Imagination was COMPLETELY different than it was 10 years ago. I did NOT like this new version at ALL and was totally sad at the end. I miss the old one terribly. Oh and I did not care for those big marble “things” at the entrance to the park in front of Spaceship Earth with peoples faces on them. And the Epcot wand thingy, GET RID OF THAT THING! I’m sad at how FW is basically just becoming more of a “fast ride/flashy attraction” type of area. I miss the older days of Horizons and World of Motion and of Walter Cronkite in Spaceship Earth, where there was some edutainment happening. Seems like we’re drifting away from that and that makes me sad.
VFan and the big golfball.
Off to have lunch in Germany!
In World Showcase I ate at the Biergarten in Germany for the first time (where they grow the beer ) I was extremely surprised by it and there was plenty of Onut friendly food to eat too! And the beer, HOLY HELL! I and a few others partook in the giant 5 gallon vat o’ beer. YUM!!! Had a little bite at the small take out type place in Japan one night and that was tasty. Illuminations was NOT the same. I like the old version better where each country in WS is highlighted and given its moment in the spotlight. But the fireworks were cool to see as usual.
MMMMMM - beer!! Where's Barbie, MissC, Onut and G4 enjoy some beer samples at lunch.
