    Disney Animal Kingdom

    February 24, 2020 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    We kicked off the day at Animal Kingdom; we had intended to get there early enough to get onto flight of passage without a huge wait. Sadly we were a little slow, so went on Navi River journey instead (a new one for me).

    The plan had been to get on a couple of rides before swooping over to the Polynesian villiage resort for a late breakfast, but the wait times ratcheted up quite quickly, Every time we approached an attraction we found its wait time had lept 20 to 30 minutes longer since we set off on the 5minute walk to get there.

    In the event we had a good walk round, bought a few trading pins and then headed out just as the park was opening to non-Disney resort guests to head to breakfast.

    Sounds like a busy day!

    Besser kann ein Urlaub kaum starten ♥️

    April 15, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Endlich wieder den ganzen Tag an der frischen Luft "all you can breathe" .. 🎈☀️ Celebration, Vineland Outlet und Disney Springs ♥️ Mein persönliches Highlight (neben tollem Wetter und leckerem Essen, interessanten Tieren und wunderschönen Blumen, einem sehr leckeren Starbuckskaffee, witzigen OldNay Mitarbeitern und dem kostenfreien Eintritt/Parkplatz ins Disney Springs): ein "Plüschtier-Auffüll-Automat". Wir haben einen Jungen beobachtet und mein Herz ist geschmolzen ... Junge sucht sich die Hülle eines Kuscheltiers aus. Mitarbeiter sitzt an der Maschine. Sieht ähnlich aus wie Zuckerwatte, ist aber die Füllung der Kuscheltiere. Mitarbeiter füllt Kuscheltierhülle durch Öffnung auf. Junge sucht sich ein kleines rotes Stoffherz aus. Macht ganz viele süsse Sachen mit dem Herz, z.B. drücken, küssen oder mit guten Wünschen besprechen. Mitarbeiter steckt rotes Herz mit in die Füllung und schließt die Öffnung ♥️ Wer hatte bitte so eine tolle Idee. ♥️
    Nun liegt wieder jeder auf seinem fetten Bett .. Wir gucken "Kids Baking Championship" .. Crazy was die können 🍪🎂🤭

    The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

    May 15, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Today’s the day!!!! I was just a little bit excited walking to the front gates of universal. We had one hour early entry because we were staying at a universal resort which was awesome!!!!
    Straight to Diagon Alley we went!! It was magical!! I felt just like I was in the movie itself. It wasn’t too busy so we were able to get good photos without many people around.
    First stop Ollivanders to get myself the interactive wand and I chose Hermione’s. Then we headed off to Gringotts Escape before the lines got too long and that was fun! This is a similar ride to the castle one Mum, you would have enjoyed. The best part was we wore 3D glasses that looked like Quidditch goggles 🤗
    Then it was time to be a witch and cast some spells around Diagon Alley. It was so much fun and then I really felt like Hermione!!! I struggled to use it to begin with😂 but a fellow little witch (like 7 yrs old) helped me out and I was set for the day. It was so exciting and fun when it worked. Thanks Sheree for the heads up to do this first because once it got crowded it would have bee a pain to do & wait & not as much fun!
    We did some window shopping as we walked around. We would be back to spend our gallons. We couldn’t not get some butter beer ice cream though when we went past the ice cream shop - delicious!!

    Next it was time to board the Hogwarts Express to Hogsmeade. They had train conductors and everything, dressed the part. It was so much better than I thought it could be. The inside of the carriages was just like the mouse and the windows played videos so it was like you were travelling through the wizarding world.
    Time for some butter beer, but they didn’t have the frozen one at the cart so I was a bit disappointed. It wasn’t as nice as the slushy version. Some more spells were cast here at Hogsmeade and then it was time to go to Hogwarts. The castle ride was so much fun - the dementors still scary as last time and I knew they were coming 😂
    We ate lunch at The Hogs Head and I finally got my frozen butter beer 🥳🥳🥳🥳 Just as good as I remembered!

    Sadly it was time to leave Harry Potter for now. We thought we’d better check out the rest of the park for a bit. We went on Jurassic Park, King Kong - which we waited 40 minutes for and thought it was rubbish unfortunately, Spider-Man 3D which was great, Hulk Rollercoaster which I loved! And the Dr Doom drop ride.

    Back to Kings Cross Station to ride back to the other park. It was a different experience again (different videos) so glad we went both ways. We went on the Rock n Roll rollercoaster which went up and down the massive hill, pretty much straight up and that was scarier than going down. Also checked out Shrek 4D and the fast and furious ride.
    Then it was back to Diagon Alley to shop for school supplies 🙊 Had some pizza for dinner and then caught the Hogwarts Express for one final time back to hogsmeade for a bit more shopping and then the light show at 8:30. The light show on the Castle was AMAZING!! It made my night and completed the Harry Potter fun so well!
    As we made our way out of universal Sarah had one more thing to buy but I was done!!!! I had sore feet and was absolutely buggered!!!! But it was so worth it for a truly magical day!!!!

    Toy Story Land

    May 18, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    First we saw woody & Jessie so lined up to get a photo with them!!!
    Sarah had a Jessie sticker on her shirt so poor Woody got a bit upset! But I told him I liked him so he was happy 😂
    Lining up for Slinky Dog, sign said it would be an 80minute wait but who knows if we’d be back again so.....
    60 minute wait. It was fun but I don’t know that it was worth the wait - I definitely wouldn’t have wanted to wait any longer!! Pretty slow
    We were gonna check out the Walt Disney stuff but it had closed, now 7pm. We were wiped, no patience to wait 95 minutes for tower of terror and we had both done it in the past so we headed to the buses to make our way to Disney Springs for dinner.
    After another long, hot day, a chocolate fudge brownie sundae finished off the day nicely

    Wir sind da ...

    April 14, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Nachdem wir im Flieger leicht gefroren haben und fast 9,5 Stunden durchgerüttelt wurden sind wir sicher in Orlando gelandet. Die Einreise hat dann ca. 1.5 Stunden gedauert. Meinen höchsten Respekt an alle Familien die nach dem turbulenten Flug und der Zeitverschiebung mit kleinen Kindern in der Schlange angestanden haben ... 👣 Dank Alamo Quick Checkin Automat wurden diesmal NULL Dollar extra Gebühren berechnet. Wir konnten uns dann im Parkhaus wieder ein Auto aus der Kategorie Midsize SUV aussuchen und damit zum Checkout fahren. Haben einen fetten Nissan. In Nippes würden wir damit nicht mal einen Parkplatz finden ... 😂 Jetzt sind wir im Hotel. Gucken Shark Tank und liegen jeder in einem eigenem fetten Bett 🙏 Gute Nacht Orlando ♥️🌍Read more

    Much shorter line...

    March 21, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    Although this was a much shorter line it was not worth it. Yes, it was very well made and the details were impeccable. But the ride was very underwhelming compared to the flight of passage ride. Well at least I could say I've done it. 🤷🏻‍♀️Read more

    Rainforest Dinner

    January 25, 2020 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 57 °F

    Super fun themed restaurant caps the day.

    I opted for the Iggy Piggy sandwich and Brenda had a Kale salad. I really liked mine. Lots of yummy flavor (Cuban Pork on thinly sliced ham with swiss, and diced up dill pickles) and apparently the winner between the two meals. Brenda's didn't have all that much flavor, but she did manage to get a few fries off my plate before I polished them off ;-)Read more
