Walt Disney World

Sorry I've not written in a while. I been very busy with the life of an 11 year old girl! Let's go back to October where I left off.

*All pictures were taken by me unless otherwise indicated*

My family went to DISNEY WORLD for a week! It was SO much fun! We arrive late at night at our hotel and fell into bed. We stayed at The Port Orleans Riverside Hotel. It was very pretty
The first day we went to the Magic Kingdom. It had the most rides. We walked through the gates and there was the castle!
My favorite rides were Space Mountain, Carousel of Progress, Buzz Lightyear, Splash Mountain, and Pirates of the Caribbean. One of the cool things we did was my brothers and I got our faces painted. It felt weird!

We had many fancy dinners and I felt like I would never be hungry again, and if you knew me you'd know how amazing that is! After dinner at the Liberty Tavern we watched the fireworks in front of the castle. It was so spectacular and amazing!

After the fireworks we stayed for the Electromagic Parade on Main Street. It was so beautiful! This is Mickey Mouse on his float:

We finally got back to the hotel at 1am and fell into bed dead tired AGAIN!

The next day we went to MGM Studios. My absolute favorite ride of all the parks was the Rockin' Roller Coaster. It goes upside down and around and around! We also went to the Indiana Jones show. The stunts they did were so cool. My dad was chosen to participate on stage. He was so good he got to do his own death scene! The scene director told him to have a long slow death, so he did. It was so long that the scene director said, 'I'm going to have to shoot you again!"

At the end of the day we saw the Fantasmic show. It was cool! But it was raining, which stunk.

The third day we spent some time at the hotel. We rented a sea racer and took turns driving it.

After that we went swimming in the pool which was so refreshing. It had a waterfall you could go under and a great big water slide that was very fun to go on!

After we got cleaned up we went back to MGM for dinner and another ride on the Rockin' Roller Coaster.

The next day we went to Epcot.

My favorite rides were Soarin', the Test Track, and Ellen's Energy Edventure. We went to the Living Seas with Nemo and saw a great dolphin show. It was so cool. We went on the 'Figment' ride and after that played with computers and stuff and we made this:

At the end of the day we watched the Lazer Light Show then went back to the hotel.

The next day we went to the Animal Kingdom.

My second favorite ride of all the parks was here at Mount Everest. This was a most awesome roller coaster.

We also rode the Kilimanjaro Rapids and got SOAKED! We went to Dinoland and rode a couple rides but my favorite was the huge playground. We got to dig up dino bones.

As we left we went to the Rainforest Cafe for dinner. We LOVE the Rainforest Cafe!

The next day we went back to the Magic Kingdom to have breakfast at the Crystal Palace and to ride Thundermountain Railroad which was closed the first time we were here. We also saw a funny little skit with Captain Jack Sparrow. He looked so much like the real actor that at first I thought it really was him.

We then left Disney and took a little trip to Clearwater Beach to see where my mom grew up. Here I am with my feet in the Gulf of Mexico:

Our last full day we stayed at the hotel for a while and went swimming again. Then we rode a really weird bike called a 'surrey'.

Then we went back to Epcot for dinner, rode Soarin' again then went back to the hotel by 9:30. We were so tired!

Our last day, we went for one more quick swim while mom packed. Then we went to Downtown Disney and spent the rest of our spending money! It was fun. There were so many shops and places to explore. Here I am at the Lego Store:

Our vacation to Disney was so fun, I feel I could never have a more exciting adventure!


Last year I entered a scrapbook page in the SC State Fair and I won a blue ribbon and $10! So, I entered again this year and won another blue ribbon and $10! Yay! Here is the layout: Also, mom and I entered a garden photo contest at the Riverbanks Zoo and garden. Here is the one I entered:
In December they will be online and you can vote for your favorite!
