Trip Report Walt Disney World, Orlando Fla.

Recommended Posts

This week was Spring Break at my school, and I went with our marching band to Disney World down in florida. To be honest, the park itself didn't really impress me. The theming was rediculously awesome but other than that, i wasn't completely thrilled. Probably because of the multitudes of people. But yeah. We stayed in the all star music resort, which was pretty cool, just an old hotel with a music theme, but it was home for a few days. Now on to the parks. The first day we were there we went to Typhoon Lagoon...I'm not much of a water person so i got in the wave pool which was awesome, and watched my friends on the rest of the rides they seemed to like them. The next day we went to MGM first. We got on Tower of Terror. Greatest drop ride ever. period. The theming was awesome, the ride was incredible. The best part was my friend had his bookbag with him, and didn't know what to do with it, so my quick thinking came up with him putting the seat belt through the straps. It worked until we dropped and it flew up and hit him in the face, then on the way back up, put a lot of uncomfortable pressure on his lap (all you guys out there know what im talking about). I loved the holigraphic ghosts, that was a neat effect. We didnt get to do Rockin Roller coaster because we got our fast passes for tower of terror, and by the time we could get another one the passes on RRC were past the time we were leaving. So we wandered around MGM and took in the sights, and annoyed one of the street performers that was extremely entertaining. Right at the main entrance there was a guy "Otto Von Bon Bon" just doing ads for the park, telling people to go to shows and stuff, he was funny. But all of us just plopped down right in the middle of the street in front of him. He was talking about "lights motors action" and he did a little part where he was like "Fast cars!" and we would cheer, "pretty girls!" and we all cheered louder...then he said "and men in tight coveralls!" and one kid in our group yelled without thinking, and we all looked at him and the guy called him gay, it was humorous. Then we went to EPCOT. This was park that there wasn't alot there but what was there was interesting and entertaining, again good theming. I liked the GM Test track, as lame as it is, it was a lot of fun. Mission Space was a lot of fun too but not worth the two hours i spent in line by myself. The best part there was the laser/pyrotechnics show at the end, that was really neat. The next day was Animal Kingdom, probably my favorite of all the parks we went to. Everest is awesome. I managed three rides on it, one in the very front seat, one right in the middle and one in the very back seat. It's definitely a back seat ride. And out of the thousands of people that go through that ride a day, i managed to ride with the same random guy two out of the three times two hours apart. What are the odds of that? I loved the backwards portion, and the head chopper at the end with the broken track and the yeti together made me duck all three times :lol: . The river rapids ride was a lot of fun too, didn't get me uncomfortably wet, but cooled me down, i liked it. That night we did what we went down there to do, play music. We got to go in the EPCOT backlot, it was really really cool. We drove under the speed loops on Test track. They were really picky about us being back there...we had to be within twenty feet of the main group at all times, no cell phones, cameras or anything was allowed off the bus. And I'm almost afraid to tell everyone about being back there :) there wasn't a lot to see as it was dark at the time. The next day we got up and went to Magic Kingdom, where we did a mini parade down Mainstreet USA, which also meant going backstage there too, another neat yet strict experience. Then the rest of the day was spent there, with the bazillion people we didn't get to ride any real major rides, but we had fun none the less. The kid that ran our boat on jungle cruise was hilarious, and the animitronic Jack sparrow's on Pirates were extremely realistic. As were most of the other animitronics elsewhere, it was creepy. There was a ride at MGM about some of their movies, with different animitronic scenes from some of them. ONe of them being Casablanca with Humphry Bogart (i can't spell his name right) but after he talks he looks over at you and tips his hat, you'd swear it was real. After the Magic Kingdom it was a twenty hour trip north back to the cold real world of Indianapolis.

Just giving you a hard time, all in good fun. Thanks for sharing though. I've only been to the WDW parks in Kissimee once and I enjoy seeing how other folks experience those places compared to how I did since they are on a completely diferent tier than the CF and SF parks.

I didn't actually see them, but I heard their drumline playing at EPCOT the night we were there...I'm in our drumline, and just from hearing them, they sounded pretty B.A. :ph34r:
