For some reason I struggled with getting to sleep last night which resulted in a pretty shit sleep. Considering the hotel looked really nice, the bedding was actually pretty shit. On this trip we have had way skainzier hotels with way better bedding. Especially in Durango, the hotel looked average as fuck but it has memory foam mattress aw man, it was glorious, never had a better sleep in my life. Definitely buying a memory foam mattress when we get home.
We skipped breakfast this morning and got on the 7:45 shuttle bus from the hotel to Magic Kingdom. Magic Kingdom is very similar, with many of the same attractions as Disneyland LA. Disney world has 4 theme parks and 2 water parks. We purchased our tickets well in advance for this. Some people from the group were also going to Disney but most were going to Universal studios. Anyway we arrived at Magic kingdom to face the thousands and thousands of children, mums with prams and fat people on scooters. There were slight differences between magic kingdom and Disneyland LA. As Magic Kingdom is newer, they clearly learned a few lesson for where Disneyland went wrong. Their queueing is much better. For get me wrong, the lines were definitely not shorter, but most queues were inside or shaded which makes a real difference considering it was a scorcher of a day. Also some of the queues were interactive which made the bad waits a little more tolerable.
That is the bigger problem with Disney parks – there are just too many people. There was literally over 50,000 people in the park yesterday. The line at the Snow White ride got up to 180 minutes at times yesterday…imagine waiting in line for a ride for 3 hours. Fuck no. Obviously we didn’t get a chance to go on that ride. We did utilise tee fastpass Dayne again though which is a little different and not as good as Disneyland LA’s so we weren’t able to exploit it as well. It was still definitely helpful though and we got a chance to ride all of the best rides. Especially space mountain which was way better here than it was in LA. Another thing that I find extremely lame as Disney parks that SO many people do is matching shirts. Families will design their own shirts that say things like “smith family vacation 2017” then have their name on it too (mommy, daddy are the cringiest.) Then they’ll have a Tagline like ‘look out Disney, the smith family are here!’ I get that they may utilise the shirts to be able to spot each other in a crowd but fuck they are so lame and cringeworthy.
The park was amazing. Honestly, I had a great time and love Disney parks. Even though the lines are long, they are manageable with fastpass. Even though there are so many children, they create a sense of magic with their elation and joy. Even though there are fat lazy cunts on scooters who block the walkways, you have something to laugh at. The Magic at Disney parks is really hard to describe, it really is something that needs to be experienced. It is an exhausting but incredible day. We got everything that we wanted to do in and we even got home early to do some more laundry and have a decent dinner (also to watch the first episode of Orange is the new black new season.)
Tomorrow we are heading to Miami, luckily it is a short drive. Thanks again for whoever is reading this for your continued support, I appreciate it so much. Here are photos from the last three days, enjoy!!
