Orlando Trip

During Spring Break 2007, we headed south for OrlandoOrlando, Florida. We were able to stay at one of my mom’s timeshares, the Sunshine Resort. While in Orlando, we got a three day play pass at Walt Disney World. This was everyone, except Susan’s, first time at Waly Disney World.

On the first day (Tuesday), we visited the Magic Kingdom. At Magic Kingdom we were able to ride almost every ride. At the end of the night we caught the fireworks show before heading back to the resort to prepare for day two.

On day two of our adventure at Walt Disney World we visited the Animal Kingdom. Animal Kingdom was my favorite park. There was a motorized palm tree that interacted with people as we waited to enter the park in the morning. The palm tree was quite funny and even spoke Japanese at one point. While at Animal Kingdom we went on a jungle safari, visited the petting zoo, saw several plays and rode most of the rides. Our favorite ride was Expedition Everest. The photograph below was the tree of life at Animal Kingdom.

At the end of the night there was a laser light show, Fantasmic, that was well done. Lasers were reflected off of water falls to show various Disney characters.

Unfortunately we only had three days to spend at theme parks. We plan to go back to Orlando to see Epcot, Sea World, Universal Studios and some of the water parks.
