Here is a post that was from August. Enjoy!
Today, we have a guest blogger. The Birthday girl herself! Unfortunately, she missed the memo about having pictures to accompany it! When she writes for me, I normally edit it pretty heavily. But this time she asked me not to...so I am granting her this one wish.
Disney trip June 2K16
June 18th 2016
This Disney trip was for my birthday. I took my friend Cassie, and my niece Alyssa- along with my mom who actually paid for the trip. We decided to stay at Port Orleans French Quarter this time, because it was very friendly and clean compared to other less expensive on-property resorts. The first day we got there, the check in was pretty fast. We had a nice room and friendly service from pretty much everyone at the resort. That night we went to “Ohana’s” for dinner at the Polynesian resort. The food was amazing (especially the wantons)….

Today was actually my birthday (and father’s day)
First we went to church (we got lost on the way so we were late), and after that we headed back to the hotel and then to animal kingdom. We ate at Pizzafari and then rode all the rides that we liked. We didn’t have enough time to see shows though, considering we had to be at Hollywood studios for our fast passes. We got on the bus and went to Hollywood studios around 2:30 or so. We rode the basics first, which were tower of terror and rock’n’rollercoaster. Then, we walked over to toy story mania and got to ride in the new section of the ride. After that ride, we decided it would be almost time for our dinner reservation. We were late getting to dinner at Sci-Fi drive in, but it didn’t matter anyway because the food was disgusting. I mean the milkshakes and water bottles were good, but the actual food would’ve been better if it wasn’t raw. Literally all of our burgers/steaks were reddish in the middle. After dinner, Cassie and I went over to tower of terror while mom and Alyssa went to the voyage of the little mermaid. We rode tower of terror 4 times in a row. Then we went back to the hotel and basically collapsed. We were exhausted

Today was our Epcot Day… aka the day I could finally spend my money on cool but useless things from around the world
The first objective for the day was to find a ride with a small line that didn’t require a fast pass. All of our fast passes were for after lunch, excluding spaceship earth
We figured since it was Cassie’s first time at Disney world that she didn’t want to be the only one to be having all the first experiences. So we went to mission space. I had ridden it before, but only on the green mode so we picked orange for the first time. The wait wasn’t long for the ride but we saw a lot of people backing out and deciding not to ride, so that made us a little nervous. When we got on the ride and honestly it wasn’t that bad. When we got off it just made our legs super wobbly. It was getting close to lunchtime so we chose to head over to the counter service restaurant in Mexico. The food was absolutely amazing to be honest. We had a reservation to go to at the beach club’s beaches and cream for a Kitchen Sink ice cream. It was huge and we obviously did not eat it all. After our ice cream we went to Soarin’ and test track, which were equally fun. It was time to head to our dinner reservation so we went to Italy to eat tutto italia, which was really good. We didn’t stay for fireworks because we were too tired but we still had fun.

Magic kingdom day
It was a pretty straightforward day all around, even though it was our last day
We had a pass for the early morning magic so that was cool. Except it was basically useless. It only got us in 45 minutes early than it normally would. We got to ride the mine train, and peter pan early so that took care of that. We went to Space Mountain and a couple of other rides before we went to lunch at “Be our guest”. The food was amazing, no surprise, and it came out fast because we pre-ordered. We rode more rides, saw a few shows, and got some snacks then watched the electrical parade at 10. Cassie and I decided to stay for the extra magic hours but ended up leaving anyway because our feet hurt. All in all it turned out to be a good day at my favorite park
In conclusion, the trip was fun. Hot, but fun. There were a few bumps along the road but nothing that we couldn’t fix relatively easy. I rate the trip10/10, and would definitely do again.
