Our last full day in Kissimmee. Max really wanted to do the Pandora – The World Of Avatar ride but all week it had queue times of 90 minutes or more. I had found out that the parks were opening an hour earlier due to the Labor Day Holiday so a plan was formed, Mark would take the kids early to get on the ride, before the crowds and then go to Typhoon Lagoon water park. They would return for lunch and a rest before we all returned in the evening to see some fireworks.
Today we had a normal start for our visit to Epcot the park that is different from the rest. Epcot is more educational, the rides and exhibitions focus on history, ecology and the wider world. How would the kids take to it? We did not need to worry as there were enough rides to keep them happy. Continue reading Epcot
Another day, another park. Wednesday was Hollywood Studios day, the park that is most closely linked to the Disney films. We had lined up three FastPass+ bookings for the most popular rides but had high hopes of getting into others without queuing for too long. Continue reading Hollywood Studios
Today was a late start, 10:00am, so it seemed like the middle of the day! We were heading for a water slide park called Blizzard Beach, which is themed as a ski resort that has got a bit warm creating lots of water slides. It was a really good contrast to the theme park worlds we had been immersed in for a couple of days. Continue reading Blizzard Beach
Today was the kids visit to the Magic Kingdom, were we excited?! We arrived nice and early ready for our first ride, the Haunted Mansion! After that we enjoyed lots of other rides; Pirates of the Caribbean, It’s a Small World and Country Bear Jamboree. By then we needed a break and a chance to make a plan for the rest of the day. Continue reading Magic Kingdom
We got up, had a quick breakie at the house and then headed for Animal Kingdom. We were all excited as none of us had been to this park before. We picked up our tickets and Fast Pass + passes and I was presented with a birthday badge with my name on it! So, for the rest of the day random people would wish me happy birthday. Continue reading Animal Kingdom
We got up at 6:45 to start our journey to Orlando. We checked in, headed through security and had a spot of breakfast, our waiter told us we could have any eggs but not fried as the kitchen was having issues! We then went and waited by the gate until our flight was called. Continue reading Welcome To Orlando
