(Past Adventure) Disney World: Downtown Disney

Downtown Disney was a night thing we did. I honestly do not remember what we did during the day, but we went to Downtown Disney to eat dinner at Planet Hollywood. If you have not been to a Planet Hollywood put it on your bucket list. That place was so cool! I loved seeing all of the movie props everywhere. I was geeking out quite a bit.

We also got the chance to shop and wander around. Some of the places I went were The World of Disney, the Lego Store and Raglan Road.

And of course I had to marvel at all the Cinderella merchandise and wish I had more money.

That is all we did in Downtown Disney.

I believe that is the end of my past adventure to Disney World. I am excited to share with you all the new adventures I will go on when I visit again next month.

(Past Adventure) Disney World: Hollywood Studios

Now I do have quite a few photos from this day.

One of the first things on my list was to ride the Rocking Roller coaster and Tower of Terror!

Later that evening we got to see Fantasmic which was a wonderful show!

Some of these photos are not the best, but I did what I could from where I was sitting.

It was an amazing day and probably one of my favorites.

(Past Adventure) Disney World: Epcot

Looking back in my photos I realized that I did not take many photos while in Epcot. I was upset by this realization, but I can tell you what I did while there.

Most of my Epcot adventure was in the world areas. I took an entire loop around and got to see so much.

I bought some tea in England, got a scarf in France, got Henna in Morocco, ate dinner in Japan, got a fan with my name in Japanese and got a Chinese umbrella with my name on it in Chinese.

I did stay and watch Illuminations and I thought it was incredible!

These are the only two photos I took. :(

(Past Adventure) Disney World: Magic Kingdom

So my last Disney post was about our first day. We spent about two days in Magic Kingdom. Our first day was as tourists and our second was backstage. Being backstage of Magic Kingdom kind of ruined the magic for me. We saw all the characters without their heads and others were out of their character.

We stood there in line and I watched Mickey walk down the road holding his head. Ariel and Peter Pan were not in the best of moods, Abu walked past us, and the evil stepsisters were not evil at all.

All-in-all the experience was still amazing and I loved every moment of it.

One of the first sights seen at Magic Kingdom is Cinderella's castle. The logo that is well known by all Disney fans. There is not a single brick in the castle, but it still is beautiful. Seeing the castle made me giddy and jump around like a little girl. Cinderella is my favorite Disney princess so seeing her castle had me so excited.

Once in the park I met many well known characters. Chip and Dale greeted me my first day and started my adventure smiling. The second day I was there I met Goofy. And yes, that is a phanny pack around my waist.

You cannot go to Disney without meeting some princesses. First in line was Aurora and then CINDERELLA!! I was so excited to get a picture with her! I also met Belle but I do not know where that picture went. :(

One thing that upset me about this trip being my first was I was too big to wear the princess outfits. There was a whole section dedicated to Cinderella. Maybe if I was an extreme anorexic I could fit into the largest dress they had… While in the shop the cashier pulled out her fairy wand and sprinkled me and Lindsey with fairy dust.

Some of the regular sights of Magic Kingdom were fun to see. Bushes in the shape of Mickey and Minnie, Cinderella's fountain, and the stocks in the American section.

But one of my favorite sections had to be the Pirates of the Caribbean area. There was a show going on as we passed that had a Jack Sparrow impersonator that looked so much like Johnny Depp, I thought it was him! The ride was fantastic and so were the statues. The skeletons moved and shook the cage they were trapped in.

Other fantastic sights consisted of the street dancers and Tomorrowland. As many Star Wars fans may know, Tomorrowland is now going to be Star Wars land. The okay to make this happen was announced a few weeks ago and will be in Disneyland, not Disney World. Disneyland is the park in California. There will be an add on for Star Wars at Hollywood Studios in Florida.

So this is all of my Magic Kingdom adventures from 2010. I will be posting other adventures to the other parks later.

Have a magical day!
