2008 Disney World Orlando FL Vacation

Author: amytrabs
Date of Trip: June 2008

MGMstudios,, now known as hollywood studios, doesn't have much to it..it can be completed in less than a whole day. the best things there are tower of terror where it is now randomized how many times you drop from the top of the tower.. and aerosmith's rockin roller coaster where they play aerosmith music and you go from 0 to 60 in a minute or two... its really neat but make sure you keep your head still or it will bang and you will get a massive headache by the time your down. other favorites are the little mermaid which is great for kids..a live performance of it.... backlot tour is cool cause you get to see props from various movies and experience special effects first hand...muppets 3d show is still fun- its been there for a long time but it's really cute for kids especially...the beauty and the beast show is classic and enjoyable...and of course i can't forget the movie ride.. one of the best at hollywood studios a 20-25 minute ride through scenes of some of the bets movies that were ever created..

If you want to go to a cheap, delicious place that is open very late.. try the B-line diner inside the Peabody hotel on international drive.. great food late...

There are lots of pizza places that deliver til 4 in the morning in Orlando, and most hotels give you their menus under the door of your hotel room or you can ask.. so if you are starving late at night.. you can order a pizza for a good price at any hour you want.

It rains everyday in florida, so beware of that. it usually only lasts for up to an hour at the most.. and then the sun is back out again....

Overall disney is a great place to go for all ages.. its s much fun. airtran was able to give us a direct flight home instead of having to stop at georgia again, which was nice of them to offer.. so we landed in philly at 1030 pm instead of 1230 am. I recommend that everyone go to disney world in Florida at least once in their life! Twice if your lucky and more than twice if you are extremely lucky.
