Ryan and I drove 2 and half hours to DISNEY!!! After 6 months we are finally back at our HOME AWAY FROM HOME!!!
We decided to become annual Pass holders!!! We bought the Weekday annual for $114 and $14 a month so we can now come any weekday of the year! Which means after 2 visits you get your money worth and you get free parking which is normally $20! and discounts on almost everything you buy in the park!!!
We stayed in Orlando for two days so we decided to go to Magic Kingdom FIRST!
When you get to Magic Kingdom, you have to park at the transportation center where you can take a Ferry or the Monorail! We obviously took the Monorail because it gives the prettiest views even though I am kinda scared of it lol
I have never been to Disney during the Fall time but BOY OH BOY IS IT BEAUTIFUL!!! They decorate the park so well which is amazing considering how Florida does not get season, BUT disney helps get ride of that seasonal FOMO.
Ryan and I walked around Magic Kingdom and rode all the rides before we went to our friends house to go to sleep and wake up at 7am to be at Animal Kingdom for the opening!
Ryan and I ate at Animal Kingdom’s Rainforest cafe at 8:30am and had waffles which were BOMB! We ate them super quick however, because the park opened at 9am and we wanted to see if we could bet the line to the flight of passage ride in Pandora!
SO… It is 9:05am and we are in the park like the park just opened and the line for the PANDORA FLIGHT OF PASSAGE WAS OVER 3 HOURS LONG (I think it could have been 4 hours +) Ryan and I saw the line and was like nope we will come back LOL so we keep walking and realized the other new Pandora ride Na’vi River Ride was only 30 mins long! So we jumped right into the line and rode the ride!
Sorry for the blurry picture but this ride was so aesthetic pleasing!!! If you’ve been on it’s a small world it is smiler to that ride as you are on a boat and you ride around a river looking at beautiful colorful scenery! It is really pretty and calm!!! After the river ride we decided to get all the other rides in Animal Kingdom done before we waited for the Flight of Passage ride! We first went of the Safari where we saw a bunch of animals and even got super close to some as they walked across the roads!
We then just walked around and went on every single ride including one of our favorite rollercoaster Mount Everest! Check out my Instagram @jaraandrea I made a funny joke under this photo haha!
Ryan and I knew we were going to be waiting 2 and a half hours so we grab our lunch to bring into the line and eat while we wait rather than waste time not in line!
PS. THIS IS WHAT I LOOK LIKE WHILE I WAIT LOL
The line for Flight of Passage begins outside where you get to see so many beautiful scenery!!! Honestly, the whole wait for this ride is so worth it there is something new to see every turn you make!
Also my camera died so I had to use my iPhone camera so the quality is not that good in low lighting! but here are some more views of what you see while waiting in line!!! IT IS SO COOL!!! BUT LET’S TALK ABOUT HOW COOL THE RIDE IS!!!! So yes the line is super cool! You then get split up into groups of 16 and go into separate rooms where you are scanned to become an avatar and find out what avatar you are!!! You then leave the room and go in front of a screen where you talk to the boss lady and she tells you how this flight is going to go! You then walk into a room where there is what looks like cycling bikes where you sit like a bike and then back harness comes up behind your legs and lower back strapping you in! The little screen under you scans you in and your avatar is locked in and you are ready to ride a Banshee!!! WHEN I SAY I HAVE NEVER BEEN ON A RIDE LIKE THIS I MEAN IT!!! IT IS SO FREAKING COOL!!!! You are looking at the screen under you on the bike and then it gets super dark and these white dots come out as if you were dizzy and BOMB A HUGE SCREEN APPEARS OUT OF NO WHERE!!!! YOU THEN FEEL THE WIND!!! SMELL THE GRASS, WATER, SCENTS!!! You feel as if you are actually going upside down and making turns and the bike thing you are on massages and blows air on you to feel all the little details you need to actually feeling like for those 7 mins that you are an Avatar riding a BANSHEE!!! I 110% THINK EVERYONE SHOULD RIDE THIS RIDE!!! I had a little girl next to me screaming the whole time of joy and as soon as it ended she keep saying again! again!!! and we talked about how cool the ride was after!!!
Hope you enjoyed the read about our Disney trip!!!
