First visit to the parks

Magic Kingdom 

On Saturday I had a day off so went for the first time ever to Magic Kingdom! Me, Lily, Nahela, Georgia and Sylvian went :) I was too excited to go and walk through the gates and see the Princess castle! As soon as we arrived Minnie and Pluto were doing separate meet and greets, Pluto had a shortest queue so we went to see him. He was very energetic with us and danced with me which was cute! 

We then walked down Main Street and saw the castle, took some photos and then the watched the show on the stage at the castle which featured all the main characters and some of the Princesses and Maleficent! 

We then went straight to the Mine Train ride which is based on the Seven Drawfs. This is the newest ride and most popular and had a 75 minute wait! It was not worth the wait and was just a roller coaster, will try and get fast passes next time!

We then headed to Big Thunder Mountain and queued for it only to be told they had shut it due to lighting! The storm was massive so we grabbed some food to shelter from the rain! It was still raining so we went to Pirates of the Caribbean ride which was amazing! The set looked insane and I can't believe how good the film looks in compassion to the film, the ride came before the film! 

The parade was due to start at 3pm so we headed to get a good spot, only for them to cancel it 10 mins later and do a 'rainy day parade' instead which was just the characters in carts! 

We then went on Lilo and Stitch ride which was kinda strange before heading home to change out our wet clothes.

Then me Lily, Rach and the girls opposite headed back to Magic Kingdom to watch the Electric Parade and Wishes! The Electric Parade was cancelled so we went on Big Thunder Moutain instead! There was no queue and we walked straight on! The ride was so good in the dark!!

We then went back to the Castle to watch wishes, the begining bit was a light show projected on the castle with music and pictures from all the Disney films, it was beautiful! Finally at 10pm Wishes started and the pretty song and the fireworks! It was insane, can't believe I can go and see it whenever I want to!! 

Hollywood Studios

On Sunday I had class in the morning at Disney University. I came back to the flat before heading to Studios for the end of Star Wars weekend with girls I had met in class! We went to the American section where they have recreated America and took some pictures! Also took a picture with the umbrella from Singing in the Rain which was jokes! We then grabbed some dinner before meeting up with my flat mates and going on The Great Movie Ride which was a cool ride with scenes from old Disney films such as Mary Poppins and Wizard of Oz! 

We then went on Rockin' Rollercoaster which was amazing so much fun!! Finally going on Tower of Terror! There was real thunder and lightening which made it more scary and it was scarier than the one in Paris! Me and Chelsea were literally holding hands so tight, it was petrifying but hilarious! 

Finally we watched the most amazing fireworks to mark the end of Star Wars weekend! These were the best fireworks I have ever seen, the finale was deafening and lit up the whole sky! 

Animal Kingdom

Yesterday me and Rach and Tom went to Animal Kingdom. Me and Rach chilled by the pool in the morning which was lovely! As soon as we arrived at Animal Kingdom we got our fast passes (cast members are allowed 3 per day!). 
We has a wander around the park and saw the tree of life and then went to Dino Land and some crazy ride that jolted you around! 

We had fast passes for Expedition Everest so went on that and it was amazing! At the top of the mountain you can see all the parks and get to realise how far away from each other the parks are! The ride goes backwards and was such fun!

We then queued to get a picture with Donald which was cute :)

We them headed to Dinosaur Ride which was SO GOOD! It's like a cart and there are loadsa dinosaurs and a story is spoken out, it was brill!

We had some time to kill so enjoyed some dole whip (pineapple ice cream) and then went to watch the Lion King show! It's only a half an hour show but was INSANE! I did not expect to it to be as good as it was! It was spectacular and I want to watch it over and over again!! 

Finally we got a picture with the boy and dog from Up, before getting the bus home :)
