  • Trip Report Trip Report: First Time EVER, Pictures & Videos!

    Hello everyone!

    My family and I took our first EVER trip to Orlando this past June and had an AMAZING time (thanks to all of the help I got here from fellow MiceChatters!)

    I took a TON of pictures and a bunch of videos. I will be updating this thread as I finally stop being lazy and sort through all of them. I will also talk about my opinions on the experiences we had. So without further introduction I present.....

    DAY 1:

    Day 1 was our travel day. In total there were 6 of us in my family. Three of us were on one flight together (leaving from SD to ORL), 1 of us got booked on a flight that was about an hour behind (with same place of departure), and the last two were already in Texas for a soccer tournament and they were on a different flight. So, all in all, it was a stressful flying experience.

    Here is a vlog of our plane ride (yes I am the one with the camera and sorry I sound completely insane, clearly I was excited haha):



    Here are some pictures I snapped along the journey:

    Part 2, Arriving in Orlando:




    The first thing we noticed upon arrival: THE HEAT. I know it's cliche, but I've never experience humidity that bad (I'm from Southern California, I'm spoiled!). Needless to say it was really strange feeling that type of weather for the first time.

    Of course this is the first thing we see when we get into the airport. We are HUGE Harry Potter fans and we were visiting Universal during one of our nine days, so we had to snap a picture next to the gift shop.

    I was struck by how GIANT this airport was. I wanted to go into every store, but I wanted to get on Disney property more... Than it took us a while to find...

    Disney's Magical Express! After a series of wrong turns, we finally found our bus and checked in without any kinks (surprising because I made the reservations for everything and I was REALLY worried that there was going to be problems.) The employees were helpful and awesome and everything happened really smoothly.

    Onto the bus! It started raining immediately. Little did we know, this would be the first of MANY rainstorms. I knew that it rained in Florida a lot, but it's a lot different reading that online and experiencing it. Luckily we were pretty well prepared.

    The WDW arch! This was the best picture I could get. We actually started kind of screaming when we saw it and other patrons on the bus didn't appreciate it... WHERE'S YOUR MAGIC PEOPLE? We also watched a fun video featuring a 10 lbs. lemon in Epcot that would become the running joke of the trip.

    Coming soon.... we arrive at our hotel: All Star Music!

      So much fun! Can't wait to read more of your report. I'm another California boy, so I really feel that humidity when I get to Florida, too. I kinda like it, though. It's like even the air feels different. Now I always associate humidity with Disney World, so I don't mind it so much.

              Yea, Orlando taught me what real humidity is.

              But hey, it's Disneyworld so you have a great time anyway!
