Our kids are 18 and 16 so magic kingdom is kinda out...and while yes it was magic kingdom is Disney's first park it's meant for little kids. Regardless I am really looking forward to going back. And while I thought my bonus was great this quarter it's nothing even close to my wife... Accountants sure put in a lot of hours but the reward is worth it. We are planning to spend three days at the beach also. This is a treat for me as I live in a land locked area.
We are going there in July . What was your favorite park? Did you you skip Canada and go straight for the English village? I remember last time I went I walked into the German village and they spoke actual german! Truth be told I can't want to see universal studios! Huge starwars fan here. I think we will skip magic kingdom but the wife wants to ride the wonderful world water ride.
Just got back from a sunny sojourn in the good ol' US of A. Whassup CB? How can I be of help?
Whereabouts, my English droog?
StarwarsJust keepin' tabs on you. It had been too long without any updates on this thread. Your readers hungrily await any 'updates' you have.
Okay - I will see what I can do over the weekend, after all, where would we be without a regular supply of crumpet?
I took Mrs W and our little cruisers to see Mickey Mouse and his chums in Florida. Luvveerrrlly
My favourite Disney park is Hollywood Studios - Tower of Terror and Rock n' Rollercoaster are good rides, Fantasmic is a great show and I like the drawing class - that's always good fun. If you like Star Wars, they have refurbished Star Tours and is a much better simulator ride now - we went on twice and had a different ride each time.
Animal Kingdom has a good mix of rides and shows too - Mount Everest and "Its Tough to be a bug" in particular. The safari tour seemed better this time - there seemed to be more animals on show.
We always start the holiday in Magic Kingdom - that's the real Disney isn't it? Sadly the new Fantasyland won't be completed until next year but you will see the progress being made on it - it looks fantastic. There is going to be a ride based on the Snow White and the 7 dwarfs as its centre-piece.
In Epcot there was a series of missions for the kids to do based on Agent P from Phineas and Ferb. These were held in select countries and so because of time we visited only those countries that had the missions - and yes the UK was one of those
Both the Universal Studio parks are good value - especially Islands of Adventure. If you like Harry Potter GET THERE EARLY - the queue for the main ride soon goes to two hours. So many good rides, but I would recommend an Express pass if you only have one day at each. Yes they are expensive, but yes they are vital!
But my best two days were not at Disney, nor Universal. Second favourite: Seaworld is a great park - Manta, Kraken and Atlantis are fun rides and the shows there are excellent - try and see the sealion show at 8.30 - quality
Best day though was Discovery Cove and swimming with the Dolphins and Sea Venture. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone. Incredible.
Hope you enjoy it in July.
