Long Overdue Review of Disney

Finally, a few pics from our trip to Disney last month! For now, just a few highlights. We visited each of the parks: Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios (was MGM), Magic Kingdom, and Epcot. Well, at Epcot we decided to just do the countries.

There were two highlights of our day at Animal Kingdom. The first one was the safari ride. We've done this one twice now, and both times we saw completely different animals. The giraffes were in the spotlight this time:

The second highlight of this day was the Everest roller coaster. Talk about a crazy trip! It takes you so far going forward, in the light, and then all of a sudden you are going backwards, in the dark! It was wild. Here's our approach to this one:

Our second day was at Hollywood Studios, also once known as MGM Studios. This park is devoted to all things movie. Great fun, and the ride Gillian and I were most excited about was Tower of Terror. We rode it 3 times!

The third day was Magic Kingdom. The original of all the Disney World parks, and this place is sure to turn you into a 9 year old all over again. A few thrill rides, but these rides are devoted to the stories we grew up with. And of course, a visit wouldn't be complete without setting our sights on Cinderella Castle:

Our final day was spent at Epcot. We decided to forgo the futureworld part of the park and spend our day exploring all the countries. This was a wonderful day, very relaxed. We spent the day eating and drinking our way through the countries.

Disney Land!! That fairy land once we lived in as kids. Of course we only had Walt Disney books at that time to take us there but I guess our kids are so lucky.
