Disney World: The most expensive place on earth!

Spinning is fun!

Even though everything was ridiculously overpriced (especially food & drink), it was well worth it to go and have some good ole' fashioned kiddy fun.  I only spent 3 days there, but still managed to tear up four theme parks!  Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and the Animal Kingdom.  I'd have to say that all of them were equally enjoyable.

The Magic Kindom.  Didn't really have the time to stop and smell the roses with my time constraints.  Zoomed right through Main Street USA to only the rides that I deemed "essential".  Quick tip: The spinning tea cups ride is AWESOME!!!  (If you have the muscles to get that cup goin' fast!)  That was, for me, arguably the best experience of the whole park.

Awesome ride!
  I even tried to squeeze it in the next day before I left Disney World for the night.  Another quick tip: FAST PASS IS SUPERB!!  Just scan your park ticket in a machine and get a voucher for the Fast Pass line.  The only catch: You can only get one Fast Pass at a time, they are good for certain period of the day (ex. 1pm-2pm), Fast Pass use opportunities are limited (ex. Maybe three 1 hour periods to use the pass in one day for a certain ride), and...dun dun dun...they run out of Passes to give out.  (That's right...they're FREE!!)  Okay, so that's more than one catch, but you can't complain because if you prioritize your favorite rides, and manage your time-- they work great!  You pretty much walk right up to the ride!

Epcot.

  Really neat place to roam around and even learn you a thing or two while you're there.  I really enjoyed the walk around the world thing.  (Even though it is all fluff and show)  And I think I may have to correct myself in regards to what I stated above.  The "Soarin'" ride in Epcot definetly beats out the tea cups.  You really do have the unbelievable sensation that you're flying.  Basically, it's an I-Max theater movie of helicoptor camera footage while you are suspended above the almost half-sphere of a screen.  Your feet dangle below you and the seats tilt and rock to go with the motions in the movie.  You can look directly below you and see the movie theater groud whizzing by!  It's quite a feeling for not being the real deal.

  Also, do go on the "test drive" ride.

Hollywood Studios: It was just super cool to "ride the movies"...oh wait, that's Universal Studios...my bad.  Well, you get my drift.

The Animal Kingdom: Best ride in the park was Mt. Everest!  Really fun ride where you get to go backwards through a dark tunnel and get scared by some Yetti.  Worst thing in the park: "The Affection Station" or as I like to call it...Disney's over glorified barn.  It's your standard dinky, smelly petting zoo; even though the park map described it as having exotic types.  I guess what they meant was that their goats were from Ukraine or something.  Other than that all the cool little safaris were neat except that they tried a little too hard to entertain the tourists by acting out some poaching warnings over the "radio".

All in all it was so much fun to go there and I look forward to going back and hitting it up again.  The only thing I'd do different is make sure I eat a big breakfast before going into the park and paying way too much for some crappy food.
