Tales of Disney

I have been meaning to post this for weeks now but we have been jam packed so I haven't had time to post.

We made our way down to Florida March 8th - March 14th 2014.

We had a wonderful week at Disney - everything went smoothly for the most part. B waited until the last day to pitch a royal fit. The drive down took roughly 11 hours and leaving at 3am was perfect! We were feeling a little sluggish when we arrived but being that we arrived at 4pm we were able to relax at the hotel for an hour before venturing out for food. We did have a tough time in Saturday night traffic around the Universal area. We had reservations at Margaritaville at CityWalk which I was really excited about but because of traffic being crazy we forfeited the reservation all together.

Our day at Universal was pretty laid back - we didn't wait in line for any of the rides for too terribly long. We also did not upgrade to a skip the line package so if there was a wait we waited. We practically rode almost every ride in the park. B did not want to do the rapid ride after we got completely soaked on the Dudley Do Right's RipSaw Falls. She had enough of the water rides after that one. She also of course did not do the big major roller coasters either because she was scared or did not meet the height requirement. She did get to meet the lady X-Men, Betty Boop, Popeye, and Olive Oil. She got to do some shopping and picked up some gifts for herself and family.

Day One at Disney we went to Hollywood Studios - we got to meet lots of characters this day and Ryan and I got to ride the big coaster which was Rock - N - Roller coaster. Brea and I had no wishes to ride the Tower of Terror so Ryan went ahead without us. It was a nice and relaxing day and we didn't stay at the park for too terribly long. The weather was great too.
That night we went down to Downtown Disney for dinner at House of Blues. They had great music, fabulous customer service, and our food was really good as well. I have no complaints.



Day Two we spent at Animal Kingdom - it was a first time for all of us at this park. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this park. I used to think it was the most boring out of them all but I was pleasantly surprised. We got super soaked on the Kali River Rapids - watch out where you sit!!


Day Three we spent at Magic Kingdom Brea's favorite park of all. They stayed open extra late too so we went early in the morning and also came back for some late night fun! Brea managed to meet a ton of Princesses and other characters. We got some pretty awesome videos of her interactions with them. We rode every ride we could possibly imagine. We got to eat lunch in Belle's castle. It was truly magical.


Our last day at the parks was spent where else but Epcot! We were rushing like crazy in this park trying to meet Princesses and characters and then meet our fastpass return times as well. We had breakfast at Akurshus Banquet Hall with the Princesses. It was a wonderful and expensive experience. :) We also lucked out after breakfast and were able to ride some pretty great rides with little to no wait times. Ryan enjoyed Epcot most of all for the world of beers. I tried some of them and I was surprised and how good some of them were. I still dream about the fish and chips in Ireland though, they were AMAZING!!!!!

We truly enjoyed ourselves and it was a great first vacation together for all of us!!

What did you enjoy most about your Disney vacation?
