I am going to inform about my wonderful time at Disneyworld during the summer of 2006. First, our family awakened at 5 o’clock am to catch our plane on Saturday morning. When we boarded the plane, my stomach was full of butterflies because of the excitement and the epic Disney adventure that was about to begin.
Later that morning the family arrived at the Orlando International Airport that was more like a Disney airport. All the employees were dressed in Disney attire, the buses had Disney characters, and all together it looked like a Disney World airport. Next, the bus took us to our Port Orleans resort.
My mom and I headed straight for Epcot (one of the four Disney parks), while my dad, brother, and sister took naps. We rode so many rides that we were exhausted. Later that night the whole family reunited to see the fireworks.
My mother did one-on-one activities with each of us. She and I went to a dinner show at the Polynesian Hotel. The theme was of course, Polynesian.
Though, the show did not impress me, it was great to have my mom alone for the afternoon. On a more serious not it was disturbing for me to see adult men in grass skirts. After it was over we headed back to the park.
One funny event was after my mom purchased a Buzz Light-year costume for my little brother Quinn: the thought that my 4-year old brother became Buzz Light-year and tried to fly across the room was entertaining. Well, this landed him a lump on his head the size of the Epcot ball for the duration of the trip. So, he learned that humans cannot fly without equipment.
Another hilarious event happened when I was screaming, ‘make it stop’ on The Tower of Terror. This ride is like an elevator that drops from a building at a million miles per hour! You would not believe how many things you can learn from going to Disney World. One of the things I learned is that if you believe, ‘you can see magic’.
For example, when I rode Mission Space it really seemed as if space was right in front of me. Also, when the family went to go see the PhilharMagic, (a Disney 3-D show) magical objects were at my finger tips. See, if you go to Disney it will feel like you are in another world! I remember telling my mom that it made me want to cry as we left the Fantasmic show.
Most importantly, my mother transformed into a kid right before my eyes. It was great to see because she works so hard to make the vacation happen. After reading all this inside scoop on our family trip to Disney World, you can make a conclusion that Disney meant a lot to my family and me. You can believe that magic can occur anytime no matter what age you are.
