Disneyworld is so awesome. we learned a few things for when we go again. but it was really magical. we did Harry Potter world on Christmas. where I got YES a wand. Bellatrix Lastrange wand to be exact. Chocolate frogs and love potion.
There are a few things we didn't know about in advanced like the magic bands you use they are not like a debit card they are charging everything to your room and than at the end of your stay they take it all out at once. uhhh so we never kept tracked of what we spent because we figured it was just withdrawing from our account! we didn't go negative or not have enough we had saved over 4,000 so we could relax on this vacation without worrying about money. it was just a shock to see that in a week we had spent $914 in three parks. which was ok haha.
Pinterest was a bust I got all my info from there and yeah it sucked!!! no joke. I read on multi pages that it would rain and be freezing at night. well I checked the weather and there was chance of rain and lots of fog. so I packed one pair of shorts and the rest pants and one dress. BUST it was HOT HOT HOT. I loved our resort the Port Orleans Riverside. beautiful and covered in trees and swamps. its awesome. the housekeeping was amazing with all our messes. the only thing there was no microwave but in the lobby a 5 min walk from our room was a buffet type deal where you pick what you want from many windows. so that wasn't to bad but that got expensive. The taxi rides were expensive to. like $40 one way. we only needed one to Universal Studios but it was $80 and you need two days at universal one day is not enough.
On Christmas night we went to Disney Springs its a open to the public place with shopping and restaurants. its a bus or boat ride to your hotels. not like in Disney Land where its connected to Disney. But it had some way cute stores. We bought a buzz and woody from the toy store. Chocolate from Ghriedelli. Ate dinner at the TREX. the inside is loud and dark every so often the dinosaurs go off and growl. there is a ice age, volcano, and a aquarium. really neat. well garth had took Collins out so I could pay and when Coop and I were walking out people were screaming and running and crowding in I couldn't figure out what was going on. So I kept walking and Garth called me in such a panic he kept saying are you ok? where are you? I was like uh at the restaurant duh. He said that someone came running into the lego store saying there was a shooter and that everyone had to take cover in a back room. Here I am walking around I had no idea. so we met up and everyone was so scared that everyone started leaving. so the boats took off and we had to catch the bus. than cops and a helicopter came, after we got to our room we read about how it was a drunk fight and the guy had said I will shoot you. so they were arrested. It was like the dream you have but never thinking of it coming true. it was so scary after my adrenaline went down. My family could have actually been in a mass shooting. So we decided to have a day in the hotel and not leave our resort. plus you need one of those days anyway, just to relax and go swim and do laundry. yes do laundry hahaha it saves you lots of stress when you get home.
So yes go to Disneyworld its so amazing. Yes go to Universal Studios and spend all your money at harry potter world. relax and have a good time.
