Whether you’ve been to Disney World in the past, or would like to plan a trip in the future, I hope the specifics I’m about to share will either remind you of fun times or be helpful advice for an upcoming trip.
Some other fun rides we did at Universal Studios were the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit Roller Coaster, Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem, and Shrek 4-D. Next time we go back to Orlando we definitely want to spend more time at Universal Studios because we felt a little rushed!
***A little tip for anyone going to Disney World or Universal Studios- get the most comfortable shoes that you can find. Ya’ll, I didn’t know if it was my shoes or if I was just tired, but after day one, my feet have never hurt so bad. I tried wearing different shoes (my Birkenstock sandals) for the remainder of the trip and I felt fine!
***A fast pass is basically a pass you can reserve before your trip that allows you to wait in a shorter line for certain rides or shows. They help tremendously, but the catch is that you can only reserve 3 fast passes per day.
One thing Cory and I learned about ourselves during our Disney trip was that we are NOT good with simulation rides. The first one we went on was at Epcot and it was called Mission Space. You sit in this claustrophobic shuttle simulator and watch yourself on a tiny screen as you are rocketed into Space to land on Mars. Only 4 people can fit inside your shuttle so you can imagine the small space we were in. We both despised it (not an exaggeration) and had to sit on a bench for about 20 minutes afterwards because we felt sick. We should have taken the hint when a voice came over the intercom and said something like, “If you begin to feel dizzy, do not close your eyes, or look at another passenger’s screen. Keep your eyes looking strait ahead the ENTIRE time.” We chalked it up to a lesson learned haha. That being said, we will not be going back to Mission Space any time soon.
Overall, we loved Epcot. Some of the other rides we went on were Soarin’, Spaceship Earth, and Frozen Ever After. Epcot also had the most amazing firework show and food. Epcot is divided into different parts of the world so you can see and experience different cultures. We had lunch at a place called La Cantina de San Angel, which was Mexican, and dinner at Chefs de France, which was French. The other countries included in the World Showcase are Norway, China, Germany, Italy, United States, Japan, Morocco, United Kingdom, and Canada. It’s a small world after all!
