We happened to go on a VERY CHILLY day. I didn't realize it got down in the 40's in Orlando but it does and it did on the day we decided to park hopping. The great thing about cold weather in Orlando, apparently it keeps more people out of the parks. We didn't have to wait in line at all! We could walk right on to any and every ride. So we were able to try them all out and it was worth dealing with the cold.
We started off at Animal Kingdom. I grew up in Florida but never made it to Animal Kingdom... we always ended up at Magic Kingdom, Universal, or Busch Gardens. I am so glad we decided to go. It was INCREDIBLE. We really had the best time. There were a ton of great shows, fun rides, and even one awesome roller-coaster "Everest."
One of my favorite attractions was the safari ride. Here are a few photos from the adventure:
Then we headed to Magic Kingdom. Magic Kingdom is my absolute favorite! It was still FREEZING when we arrived but once again... NO LINES! Yes, we even managed to go on Splash Mountain when it was 42 degrees outside. Not the smartest idea but I couldn't go to Disney and not ride Splash Mountain. So I persuaded Erik to go with me and we had a log all to ourselves. We got splashed but it wasn't too bad and I think it was worth it. The people that worked at Disney thought we were crazy! Erik had a photo shoot in Greenville the next day. He was a little stressed because he didn't have a chance to get his hair trimmed before we left for our trip. We would have never guessed that Disney has a barber shop! But we spotted it right when we walked in the park so Erik went in and got a nice trim!
We ended the night with Space Mountain, hot chocolate, and cinnamon buns. It was just as magical as it was when I was 10 years old. I can't wait to take Harper one day!
