No bueno, but no problem- I'm back now and with some tales from my trip to Disney! Some friends and I decided to go to Epcot and the Magic Kingdom and MGM (which is now Hollywood Studios? Has it always been that way?) to celebrate the end of the semester.
I decided to start the day off with some chocolate Lucky Charms for the car ride down to Orlando. Yummmmmy.
They seemed very Disney-appropriate because like any good child, I ate all my marshmallows first and pouted through the rest of the boring cereal.
Don't worry guys, I didn't eat the weights you see behind my delish cereal.
About two hours later, we were here!
That's a pretty famous castle, huh? I didn't see any princesses though. Just Buzz Lightyear. Do they even have a princess come out dressed as Pochahontas? She's one of my top fave princesses, along with Belle and Sleeping Beauty. I really like the modern Alice (of in Wonderland;) because she's a badass and went sailing around the world instead of following a guy at the end of the movie. Can't hate that!
MGM Studios is my favorite- I still get seriously frightened on Tower of Terror - you should have heard me screaming like a baby! I bet fellow Orlando bloggers could. The feeling of weightlessness is pretty exhilarating, though! I'd really love to try skydiving... tandem, of course! At least the first time around.
After about 9 hour's worth of walking around the parks we decided it was time for Epcot, also known as time to Eat and Drink our way around the world. The really fun pictures are on my friend's camera, and if you're lucky I may post some pictures of me after three of these ginormous beers and a Grey Goose Citron slushee.
You heard me right. Disney's French area makes Grey Goose Citron slushees. Which tasted like candy. Amazing.
My friend and I decided to eat Chinese/Asian cuisine. I ordered chicken curry croissants, which were really just bread, bread, bread with a teeeeeeny piece of curry chicken in it. Luckily, I got to snag a few bites of these veggie egg rolls while their owner sipped a strawberry marg straight out of Mexico. Very authentic.
While we dined and drank our healthy cuisine, we got to watch a beautiful sunset over Lake Epcot. That may or may not be its actual name, so don't quote me on it;)
Again, most of the "fun" pictures are on my friends camera. I was disappointed though. I expected to get poutine in Canada, but no dice. Disney, you let me down! I did get to see Niagara Falls, though, so I think we're still on good terms.
And you can't leave Disney without buying some souveneirs, right? Especially after spending wayyyy too much on drinks.
Case in point: Mickey Mouse cereal/oatmeal/salad/yogurt mess/everything bowl. Super cute and only $7. Not too shabby for Disney.
