disney and universal

The week before last my family and I went to Disney World! The last time we went was in 2004, I believe, and I was super excited to go again. It ended up being a really great trip even though it seemed to fly by so fast. We also spent a day in Universal--to see the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! I don't like Universal much and the crowds were absolutely horrible but it was so cool to see Hogwarts and Hogsmeade.

Anyway.. of course I took tons of pictures. I can't post them all here, but I figured it would be fun to show some of my favorites, at least.

My favorite park is probably Epcot. The world showcase is really interesting, and I'd never seen the whole thing during our first two trips to Disney. I rode a lot of rides I'd never ridden before, or thought I would never ride (I've never been a roller coaster person, or so I thought, and prior to this trip I'd only ever ridden one roller coaster--turns out I actually enjoy them! as well as things like the Tower of Terror). We saw Cirque du Soleil's La Nouba in Downtown Disney, which was absolutely amazing. It's the second Cirque show I've seen! And of course we got butterbeer in Hogsmeade.

I'm really glad we could go again, but it's a little sad because we had all looked forward to it for so long, it happened in a flash, and I know we won't be going again for a long time. But oh well--it was a fun trip!
