Day 10: LAST DAY – Universal and Islands of Adventure

Here we go, our last LAST OFFICIAL day in Orlando, and we’re spending it finishing off with Universal and Islands of Adventure. It was a beautiful sunny day and our day was dedicated to getting autographs, re-riding rides we enjoyed, and doing some last minute shopping. It was so nice and hot out today we […]

Disney Vacation – Day 9: Magic Kingdom Part 2 and Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

Here it is. The big one. This is the day Disney Nerds only DREAM ABOUT! Well, Disney Nerds who don’t live in Florida or anywhere near the place so they don’t have easy access… Today is Magic Kingdom Part 2, and at night it turns into Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. This means we […]

Disney Vacation – Day 8: Hollywood Studios

PS. These journal entries are being written AFTER the vacation was over, which is why I have time to sit down and recall all the details of the trip, in comparison to the daily entries that were written DURING the trip. That’s why these, in comparison are so long. For the record, let me just […]

Disney Vacation – Day 7: Universal Studios

So first thing in the morning we’re off to a pretty good start. We have a plan and know what we want to go on since we didn’t get to go on it last time we were here. Before we get to Universal Studios, we stop by the City Walk to check out the Meal […]

Disney Vacation – Day 6: Magic Kingdom Part 1

First day at Magic Kingdom! This required waking up early, or relatively early considering our bus only has two shuttle times for Disney. I actually made the effort to eat breakfast this morning – Lucky Charms, that had 190 calories. I can’t believe it had that many in that small cup. So much sugar! After […]

Disney Vacation – Day 5: Islands of Adventure

I did not want to get up today. I miss sleeping in so bad….I am going to sleep in  SO HARD that Saturday when I come home… Connie woke up to have breakfast, I slept in for an extra ten minutes. I had to rush to get ready because I slept in a little bit, but […]

Disney Vacation – Day 4: Animal Kingdom

There was this weird sound that woke us up this morning….this rhythmic beating, either in the room beside us, or somewhere, but it was totally weird. Before that I heard an alarm, and when I went to check my phone it was around four, we were supposed to be up closer to nine, so I […]

Disney Vacation – Day 3: Harry Potter World (Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade)

First thing we did in the morning when we woke up, much later than the other days, was we called our travel agent, Helen. Although we booked the hotel with Expedia, we still wanted her opinion on how to proceed with this shitty situation we have to deal with, aka terrible shuttle times for the […]

Disney Vacation – Day 2: Epcot

Our first official day at Disney, but our second day in Orlando. As excited as we were sleep was hard and we didn’t get much of it. For starters, we woke up at 8:50-9:00 for the 9:50 AM bus; that wasn’t enough time. At least we know for next time that we have to wake […]

Disney Vacation – Day 1: Downtown Disney

First officially day into our vacation and it just started off weird… See our hotel, the Holiday Inn, is gay, according to Connie, and I agree. That’s because the shuttle bus times suck. Essentially, we had to catch the 9:50AM shuttle bus to Epcot, then from there take a bus to Magic Kingdom, then from […]
