  • Trip Report First Time Ever To WDW - A Trip Report

    dmtnt55 presents: Walt Disney World - My First Time (A Trip Report)

    How Things Will Work:
    I will make 1 post every day on this thread with a trip report from a day of my trip. Ask me if you have any questions.

    What This Is:
    A trip report from my vacation.
    July 21st-27th
    Boardwalk Inn
    Walt Disney World Resort
    Lake Buena Vista, Florida.

    Introduction:
    First things first, I'm a Disneyland guy. I lived on the west coast, which meant living close to Disneyland meant going to Disneyland a lot. You then study a map and notice how far Disneyland and Walt Disney World are apart from each other. Far distance means far travel. Far travel...well it usually means far wallet, or spending a ton of money to travel coast to coast. But after many trips to Disneyland, my fandom of Disney really built up. Well, it built up to the point where I started collecting merchandise, and anytime I spend money, I spend money on something I really like, in this case, Disney. So this fandom built up so much that I finally convinced my family that it was time to make a trip to Walt Disney World. After a long time toying with plans, itineraries, and reservations, we were set to go to our first trip.

    So, I hope you follow along as I bring you some fun and some photos from my first trip!

    Day 1 - July 21st, 2010, Getting there + Some DHS
    Day 2 - July 22nd, 2010, Magic Kingdom + DHS
    Day 3 - July 23rd, 2010, EPCOT

            O I can't wait for more. ! Boardwalk and Y&B tempt me to reconsider staying at the WL.
            What time did you get to DHS? Did you eat anywhere beforehand?

            If you would like to contribute to the cause for a relatively poor private school teacher. Please private message me. I'd be very thankful.

                Wait, what were you doing for tickets? You burned a whole day's ticket on one ride at DHS?

                        Good to see all of you here!

                        Now to the first full day of our trip

                        July 22nd, 2010

                        Waking up in Disney World was awesome! Our room had a decent view, as you could see the Eiffel Tower in France at Epcot, and some other random little sights. So the first day was the day for Magic Kingdom in the morning and some DHS later in the day.

                        So MK opened at 9:00, and we wanted to be first in line at the turnstile (which we were), as we arrived at about 8:20.



                        They started letting us in at about 8:40, but we were stopped at the tunnel. At about 9, Mickey and friends came from the train, and they finally let us into the park! We went straight to Fantasyland.

                        Mad Tea Party + Roof = Lame.


                        it's a small world facade + indoors = lame.


                        After Fantasyland, we hit up some Frontierland and Liberty Square stuff.

                        I really do love The Haunted Mansion here!


                        So that was that for Magic Kingdom for the day. (We were coming back to do everything else on Saturday). We left the park when all the crowds started piling in, at about 2 o' clock.

                        A wonderful view


                        So, we got back to the Boardwalk at around 2:30 and decided to take a little break. After the break we headed over to hit up some DHS stuff then go to our 5:45 dining reservation at the Sci Fi Dine In

                        I loved the atmosphere here, but the food and prices weren't anything to celebrate.


                        So after dinner (we stayed there for a goof hour and a half to watch the movies and talk a little bit), we went on some more DHS stuff, then took the hefty 10 minute walk back to the Boardwalk. We got back to the Boardwalk at around 8:30. We then called it a night, as we had a big day of EPCOT in front of us tomorrow!

                        To be continued...

                            I agree that the roof over the tea cups and indoors small world facade isn't as cool as the respective DL versions, but that's because the Orlando weather is lame. It rains a lot in central FL, not so much in SoCal. Hence the abundance of weather protection at WDW that DL doesn't have or need. It may not look as nice, but from a practical standpoint it's more or less a necessity.
                            I knew if this business was ever to get anywhere, if this business was ever to grow, it could never do it by having to answer to someone unsympathetic to its possibilities, by having to answer to someone with only one thought or interest, namely profits. For my idea of how to make profits has differed greatly from those who generally control businesses such as ours. I have blind faith in the policy that quality, tempered with good judgment and showmanship, will win against all odds.
