So over the Easter weekend, our family went to Orlando to go to Disney World and we didn’t have enough time! After having gone there I’d say one really needs a full week in order to see everything, I guess fortunately in our case Brandon is young and we really only did the kid stuff. Our plane on Friday afternoon was delayed so we didn’t reach Orlando till around 9:30pm, a shame because we had some local sight seeing planned (packed schedule) but meh that’s alright. Saturday morning we went to Disney’s Animal Kingdom and it was fun. While there were obviously a ton of animals in the park, I was a bit disappointed at all the fake animals used to showcase certain rides.
Hehe the cutest thing was when we went on the A Bug’s Life show, there’s a point where the bad bug takes over and it’s loud with a lot of flashing lights. Brandon as so startled he curled up in a ball with his knees at his chest and his hands over his eyes and I thought it was so cute. Hehe my little chicken but to be fair a lot of the children in the cinema were shocked and crying. We walked around the whole day going on rides and playing in general and Brandon had a wonderful time.
During the Lion King show, they were looking for some volunteer children and lol we made Brandon go out, to which he had a lot of fun leading the other kids in the activities. We left the park around 4:30pm, Brandon and Maggie were pretty tired from walking all day (we walked over 20k steps) and for dinner we ate at one of the touristy restaurants close to our hotel. We had an awesome table right next to a river. Later we walked through the Disney Springs shopping area and I thought the Lego picture was pretty darn cool. 😉
Sunday we went to Disney’s Magic Kingdom and I certainly had more fun there because there were a lot more rides and “adult things” to do.
We went on a few roller coasters and Brandon loved it when I pretended to be scared. I took less pictures this day because some of the rides had poor lighting. Hehe during the haunted house ride, Brandon again was very scared and both Maggie and I had to reassure him that nothing would happen, that he’d be safe with us. Brandon also really enjoyed driving around the track chasing Maggie, later he remarked to me that he now knows he’ll be a good driver haha. It was hotter this day and Maggie & B were tired so again we called it a day at around 4pm.
On Monday we went to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, this time during the Hollywood Classics ride, there’s a part where a gang fight erupts between rival robots and this time Brandon went to hide where people’s feet were. The lady sitting next to Maggie laughed at how cute Brandon was. 😉
Now that Disney owns the Star Wars franchise there were a lot of characters from the movies walking around and the ride was pretty good I’ll admit. My favorite show was the Indiana Jones one, it was a huge production with large moving sets and they did quite a few bits (modified) from the Raiders of the Lost Ark movie, lol Brandon thought it was so funny to see the female lead also beat up the bad guys.
Hollywood Studio is much smaller so in the early afternoon we went back to the hotel so he could play in the pool. In the evening we met up with aunt Agnes & uncle Paul for dinner and it was great. They’re both so much fun and it was great to have some quality time with them. LOL in the garage uncle Paul gave Brandon a ride to our car in his Porsche, Brandon says we should get one too. 😉
We left Orlando on Tuesday and since we had a connecting flight, we didn’t get home till about 8:30pm which sucked and the work day after sucked a lot too but the vacation was well worth it and I’m glad Maggie made me go lol. Brandon had a wonderful time and I hope he remembers at least a little bit when he’s older.
