Visiting the Parks of Walt Disney World 2012 in Photos

We had an amazing time on our trip to Disney World.  I love writing about our travels but I am getting a bit exhausted by it.  I’m going to finish up my Disney posts (at least for now) with a few slideshows from our visits to the parks (only look at one at a time or you’ll go cross-eyed!  I’m also including a little blurb about our favorite rides/parts of each park.

Magic Kingdom – I really thought Magic Kingdom would be the best park for Evan but I was wrong.  We started off on the wrong foot by going on the Stitch ride and Pirates of the Caribbean ride.  Both scared the bejeebus out of Evan so he HATED Disney for the first day.  Thankfully we turned it around after that.

Evan’s favorite things at Magic Kingdom:  Buzz Lightyear ride, Monster’s Inc Laugh Floor, Tom Sawyer’s Island, Ellen’s Energy Adventure and Splash Mountain.

Will & Nicole’s Favorite Things: Space Mountain, Buzz Lightyear and Splash Mountain

My favorite things:  Buzz Lightyear, Splash Mountain, Small World, and Monsters Inc Laugh Flo

Epcot – I never expected Evan to like Epcot because I thought he would be bored.  Instead, he enjoyed it a lot.  Epcot has a Kidcot activity set up where you can go around to all the countries and get stamps on a bear puppet.  Evan and I did that and he really enjoyed it.

Evan’s favorite things at Epcot:  Soarin’, Test Track,

Will & Nicole’s Favorite Things: Soarin’, Test Track,

My favorite things: Soarin‘, the World Showcase, the fireworks

Animal Kingdom – Evan LOVED Animal Kingdom!  Like Epcot, Animal Kingdom has a kid focused “scavenger hunt” type thing where they do different activities in exchange for a stamp.  Get all 6 stamps & you get a special Rafiki stamp.  Evan ate that up!

Evan’s favorite things at Animal Kingdom:  Getting the activity stamps, digging for dino fossils in Dino World, riding the flying dinosaur ride, the parade, the safari.

Will & Nicole’s Favorite Things:  Expedition Everest (I think they rode it 4 or 5 times), the safari, the parade

My favorite things:  The safari, the parade, Breakfast at Tusker House with the characters.

Hollywood Studios – Another dark horse in the popularity contest that Evan loved.  I got quite annoyed with Hollywood Studios as it is MUCH smaller and MUCH more crowded.  We arrived at 10:30 and all the FastPasses for the day were already gone for the Toy Story ride and the wait was over 2 hours long.  NOT cool!

Evan’s Favorite Things at Hollywood Studios:  The “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” play area ( I couldn’t get him out of there…he LOVED it!)

Will & Nicole’s Favorite Things:  The Rocking Rollercoaster (which was closed the whole time we were there…bummer) and Tower of Terror

Downtown Disney – More of a shopping and eating destination than a “doing” destination.

Fantasia Gardens Mini Golf – I never knew this even existed until we passed it driving to the parks.  It was Dewey’s idea to go play on our last day and we all had a BLAST.  We highly recommend it!

Looks like so much fun! Makes me want to take Grady! We went to Disneyland when I was 11 and my sis and I cried! on the space mountain ride! Totally bawled with fear!

I would bawl with fear if I got on there today. You will notice that my "favorites" never included roller coasters. You could NOT make me get on one. No thank you!
