The cold weather is FINALLY breaking in Pittsburgh and I’m sure all of you couldn’t be happier, as am I! The only thing on my mind are Pirates games, bike rides on the trails and being able to commute to work/school without wearing 3 bundles of layers. I just returned from my last college spring break in the sunshine state of Florida. My family and I went on our very first trip to Disney World/Universal Studios in Orlando! I’ve never gone on spring break before, let alone can even remember the last time I took a break from life for an entire week straight. As a first time visitor, I had very high expectations of the Disney experience from hearing friends reviews and the magical atmosphere and I’m happy to report I had SO MUCH FUN!!!!!!!!! Now that I look back it’s almost laughable that this was a “vacation” of some sorts considering I woke up every single day at 6 a.m. and walked just about 10 miles around a theme park. None the less, I got to spend 6 days with my family in the sun pretending we were wizards and princesses.
Day One // Harry Potter World Diagon Alley
Eat: The Leaky Cauldron Snack: Florean Fortescue’s Ice Cream
Ride: Harry Potter and the Escape From Gringotts
Tip: Ride the Hogwarts Express between parks! There’s an awesome replica of King’s Cross train station.
Day Two // Harry Potter Hogsmeade – Blue Man Group
Eat: Three Broomsticks Snack: Frozen Butter Beer
Ride: Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey
Tip: Try to catch the Tri-wizard Spirit Rally! Watch two of the teams competing perform, very cool!
Blue Man Group Show -Hilarious, innovative, raging, fun, dance party and antics. I didn’t really know what I was getting into but I’m so happy my mom decided to buy us tickets.
Day Three // Epcot
Eat: Teppan Edo
Ride: Test Track
Tip: Download the MyDisneyExperience App! It is EXTREMELY helpful. It has maps, dining, character meets, fast pass, etc. We could not have survived or got to do as many fun things as we did if we didn’t have it all at our finger tips!
Stay tuned for my next post ft. Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom! (:
