My final post about Disney is coming to a close, and it is bittersweet because I must say goodbye to the reminiscence of vacation and Florida. However, my parents are talking about some potential trips we may be going to over the summer. Whether this is a good thing or not I am not certain, because I have heard that we may be out for three weeks. But here we go: the photos!
I spotted Rapunzel's castle as my family made our way to the Haunted Mansion. I'm not a huge sucker for anything horror related-- usually I try to shy away from that genre, but when my brother and I were helping make plans for the trip, I was joking and said, "Why not?" It wasn't that scary, a really mild ride, but I was still clinging onto my seat.
One of the rides that my brother kept going back on is called Tomorrowland Speedway, and it basically is like riding an actual car, except there are tracks in the middle that help avoid the cars from getting out of line. My time for driving a car is approaching, and if my skills on the real road match the skills I carried on the ride, well, let's just say I wouldn't be getting my license for a very long time.
Disney Parks, in general, have tons of parades and shows, and one of the ones that we managed to go and see was Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade, and it's a fun parade to see during the holiday season, even if it is several days after the holidays have passed. There were so many Disney characters, including this one float which boards all of the Disney Princesses and their princes! Then, if you're willing to stay up late, then there is the Electrical Parade.
One of the things that people do not notice is that the cast members there (what they call their employees) end up acting as a bit of a pep squad, trying to get everyone pumped out for the big parade. Another thing that, I don't think, most people realized, was Cinderella's carriage. Cinderella's carriage was only at the parks for a little bit; it was the actual carriage that was used in the live action film of if that is coming out in March, and it was rolling the streets midday! Can you believe that, or what?
Here is a video showing some parts of Disney. It's not the best, and this is my first:
So here I am, back at home, with elastics on my teeth, typing this up. The trip has been such an amazing experience and opportunity, despite the fact that I had to trudge through finals. One of the things that I really love about Disney is that no matter what age you are, it brings out another side of you-- a more childlike quintessence. A lot of the things that I did on this trip I often wouldn't do I was able to do and get through. I conquered many sudden drop rides. Someday, I hope that I can go back there, after saving enough money. That sort of spirit we kind of lose over time, but we potentially can find back again.
