It’s been about too long since I got back from my Disney World Trip! So, I’m ready to tell you all about my trip and tips and tricks that I have found that helped me!
A quick overview I went for 6 days and five nights. I attended Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and one of the days we went to Universal Studios. I went with 4 other girls and we stayed at Port Orleans: Riverside.
The excitement was real! I woke up at 3 AM to get on a flight and flew to Disney. I few by myself and the rest of my party flew from a different location.
The hotel we stayed at was very beautiful. Port Orleans Riverside moderate value resort, but it was delightful. I have stayed at the Poloniasian resort which is a deluxe hotel, but I enjoyed both hotels and I really could not tell a difference. The room service was great, and the help desk was a god send. If you haven’t been to this resort has building where the rooms are located and there are several buildings on the property. Our room building was a bit for from the main building but close to a bus stop.
Once the girls got there, like a hour after me, we were headed to Epcot!
We started our day by running to Soarin’, we were running late and were going to miss out fast pass! (TIP: Fast passes have a 5-minute grace period)I was the only one in our group that had ridden it before, so I was very excited to see the girl’s reactions. The all loved it! The ride has always been a favorite, but I love the new show and the smells that accompany them! Then we were off to Mission: Space. We also ran to this one because we were terrible at keeping time and trying to shop! We rode on the orange track, which I the tuff one. I would not recommend if you are prone to motion sickness or even if you think you are. We were all disoriented after this ride. Now we were off to Spaceship Earth! I love this ride! It cute and entertaining. It’s also great when you need to get out of the Florida sun or want to sit down for a spell. Don’t forget to personalize the video that pops up on your ride car, there will be a special video waiting for you to send to all your friends and family! (Picture Opportunity: outside the exit is the famous Bubble Gum Wall)
By this time, we were all looking for food. We headed to the World Showcase. (TIP: Start in Canada and go against the crowd)
We started off in Mexico. We were tempted to eat tacos but since we were all from Texas, we decided to try something different.
The next country was Norway. None of the food options really spoke to us and Frozen Ever After was shut down so we moved on.
Up Next was China! None of us were too keen to try any of the food here but China does offer some great picture opportunities.
Right Next door wasGermany! I was very excited to visit the Karamell Kuche. I got a caramel apple and it was wonderful!
In Italy, we split a piece of pizza from Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeeria it was great. This pavilion has a great view of the Epcot ball from across the lake!
American Adventure is the halfway point in the world showcase. Since we all came to Disney to try new things, we did not get any food here, but I did get popcorn because it is my favorite snack.
We were finally in Japan! I knew exactly what I wanted to get here. At the Katsura Grill they have chicken cutlet curry that is absolutely to die for. Their teriyaki chicken isn’t so bad either. Most of my party ate here because we were starving by this point and didn’t feel like walking back to get food. The portions here are very good I didn’t share with anyone and the cost is great too. After dinner we went an explored the shop that is under the restaurant. It was amazing and very big. It has so many sections of all things Japan. There was a candy section, pearl/ jewelry section/ anima section/ Pokémon section / and a hello kitty section. This store is definably worth checking out.
In Morocco, we stopped at the Tangerine Café and split the walnut baklava. This was amazing! Do try this dessert, I cannot rave enough about it!
Next up wasFrance!Here we found the Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie. We all split a macaroon filled with raspberry and lime crème. It was ok but there was probably better stuff here that we just didn’t know to try.
Lastly, we visited theUnited Kingdom. One of my friends in my arty wanted to but tea so we looked around all the shops till we found tea leaves to take home.
Then we headed back to Future land to find a spot to watch the Illuminated Nations show. Why we didn’t just walk through Canada to get there faster. I don’t know, would not recommend gong all the way back, it’s too far to walk and you would be better to save the energy. The firework show was okay, but I am not really about the shows at Disney, but I saw it once and I don’t need to see it ever again.
