As an 8-year-old child, the worlds scary place. Everywhere you look there’s something terrifying. From people the size of giants, roaming the streets, with no care what so ever with their surroundings or just realizing that in a few years would come the most difficult and emotionally unstable time of my life. Sure, those things may be slightly exaggerated, but what I do know is the most horrendous experience I had in the land of joy that ultimately ruined my love Disney for many years.
I remember the first time I went to Disney World; excited and eager like a child on the first day of school. I already had my suitcase packed two weeks before we even left, and that two weeks felt more like two years. The night before we left, I couldn’t sleep. It was like I had nonstop adrenaline rushing through my body. All I could think about were the rides, princesses, and that beautiful beach I’ve seen thousands of pictures of. Finally, after hours and hours of stirring around, I fell asleep.
My first Disney trip was everything I imagined and more. Disney is the most magical place on Earth. Although I was scared to get on all the big rides I still managed to get on. I would stay calm in all of the lines, but whenever I saw I was about to get on the ride I would get the biggest knots in my stomach. On Tower of Terror, I was very close to crying, but I got through it. A very scary ride is Space Mountain. It was like I wanted to start balling out crying, but it was just tears falling out of my eyes. I also hated big drops at the time. The rides with big drops like Splash Mountain, Tower of Terror, and Space Mountain made me lose my stomach. My favorite roller coaster is Rockin Roller Coaster. Rockin Roller Coaster is a fast loopy loop ride, but it’s very smooth and easy going. I do not like jerky rides like the primeval whirl that jerks you every which way.
This is my story of my trip to Disney world. I stayed at Coronado springs and It had a pool. We just got there after Nine hours. Then, we unpacked and went to our room. We Rested and watched T.V. Then we went to the pool. After that We went to the room and went to sleep. The Next day, we got Up early and went to Animal kingdom. We went on many rides Then went to lunch. After that we went to the room and cooled off. Then, we went to go see my older cousin.I was excited to See him because I have not seen him in 5 or six years. We went to dinner to a seafood place. After that, we went to the pool. We came back to our room and took a shower then went to bed. The next day, we got up and went to a place in Disney world and ate breakfast. Then, after that I went to Magic kingdom.
During summer vacation my mom’s family came to New York from Germany. They came since we decided to go to Florida and spend time as a family. This was there first time ever coming to America, so we wanted to make this trip enjoyable and never forgetful. In order for us to go to Florida, we rented a 16-passagner van. The experience for them was like fantasy because we saw all the states entering Florida and they bought souvenirs from each place.
The most memorable trip my family has ever taken would be our trip to Disney World. My family and I have went to Disney three times, each time we have went I've had the best time of my life. Nothing could make me feel the way going to Disney with my family does. At Disney I have made memories that will last a lifetime. From the memories on the drive down to Florida to the memories we make while we are there. I remember the very first time I went, you can ride a ferry boat to get to Disney. We decided to ride over on the ferry instead of the monorail, just riding on the ferry was a different, and great experience from the rest.
Beth was an interesting woman to say the least. She was very talkative and had an eccentric personality. She might have been a smidge under the influence on this very normal afternoon but she was still a nice and fun person to talk to. Ashley and Kevin and I got to know her and all about her family all too well sitting at the bar at TGI Friday’s.
My first trip to Disney World, now that, that was a memorable trip. That trip was one of the most magical and happiest memories of my life. It was back in 2008, I had just turned 6 years old a few months before we left to go there. It was summertime, and the weather was perfect. I remember being so bored on the way there because I am an only child so I didn’t have anyone to entertain me besides myself. My mom’s side of the family went on this trip with us, and at the time I was the only grandkid, and the only kid at all. So once we finally were almost there I remember passing the big ‘Welcome to Disney World” sign and being so excited I peed my pants--my mom was pretty mad, but my dad thought it was kinda funny so I didn’t get in too much trouble.
As I stepped off of the bus, I immediately noticed a magnificent castle. The sun gleamed off of the blue, white, and gold spires that reached for the clear, blue sky. At this moment, it was evident that Magic Kingdom was not an ordinary theme park. Still in wonder over the architectural beauty of the building, my family and I joined the rest of the energetic crowd waiting to enter the park. I forgot about the summer homework assigned, the workouts that were to be completed, and the stresses of everyday life. I became a child again, preparing to enter a multitude of worlds in a tiny section of Florida.
No matter how old you are, when you go to Disney the inner child in you comes out. From the moment you walk into Disney until the moment you walk out you feel welcomed and special. There is one word that describes the Disney experience and that is that it is “magical”. Lee Cockerell writes of this “magic” from firsthand experience, as he was the Executive Vice President of Operations of Walt Disney World Resort for over ten years.
“We’re going to Disney World, we’re going to Disney World!” I chanted as more and more excitement filled inside me, as quickly as helium fills balloons. “But, I thought you said we weren’t gonna go Disney World.”
When I got to magic kingdom, the first thing I saw were shrubs shaped like Mickey Mouse. Like any other mom, mine wanted to take pictures in front of anything and everything, which included the Mickey Mouse shaped shrubs. I quickly got annoyed, but when I started walking down main street the amazement hit me. I started looking around wanting to take everything in. I saw kids sitting on their dad’s shoulders so they could get a better look. I saw balloons, ice cream, and hats all shaped like Mickey Mouse. The stores, the characters, the castle, everything was like something I’d see in a movie. It was truly magical. I realized then that I wasn’t too old to experience the magic of Disney.
Have you seen a real live bear?Well I have.One day me and my family decided to go on a picnic, to Yosemite National Park.I was so excited because I never been there before!So then we got everything ready and in the car we left to Yosemite. In the car we all started to fight for the food like the chip and drinks but my mom stop us.After we were driving and then what felt like four hours of driving and no wifi on the way made it worse.When we finally got there,and found a spot to have are picnic.
It’s no doubt that creating a family oriented theme park based on popular, beloved cartoon characters and imagination was a good idea. From Cinderella’s castle to the famous Main Street, U.S.A, there’s something extraordinary lying around every corner. Walt Disney World, other wise known as “the happiest place on earth”, or the place “where dreams come true”, was founded by a man with a dream of creating a place where children and parents could spend time together while making amazing memories. However, this extravagant amusement park is only one of the major accomplishments of Walt Disney.
