WDW Trip Report Day 2: 1900 Park Fare & Magic Kingdom

floridian

Headed into the Grand Floridian for breakfast

So day 2 at WDW starts at the Grand Floridian for breakfast at the 1900 Park Fare. Being gluten free Disney is good at any place, but why here? Well we had kids this trip and this is the hottest breakfast spot currently according to reservations/tripadvisor etc. The character breakfast is also on point and the characters make a good round, the food was also pretty good. Not as good as Crystal Palace but good. Also a quick tip, it’s easy to navigate the parks since we had a reservation here, we got to park here and jump on the monorail straight to the parks which makes it super easy.

Such a scenic spot to chill at and check out.

Disney World 2018 Trip Report Day 1: Flight + Springs

Finally the countdown is over and we get to go back to Disney World! The most magical place on Earth. But I think the waiting part is part of the magical journey. I will be posting daily blogs of our trip report and updating. Today we flew in from Little Rock and met up with the rest of our family then checked into our “Magical Vacation Home” and then decided to hit up Disney Springs.

I will review each aspect including the Magical Home part as well! So stick along this week and feel free to ask any questions. There will be a lot of photos and I’ll put some explanations at the bottom. I wanted to do a seperate post on reviewing the Magical Vacation Homes experience but I think I’ll just leave feedback under each photo.

We opted to fly first class on the way their since it usually is a good deal compared to economy. Our plane got upgraded so we got lie flat seats all the way from Little Rock, was an awesome experience and a excellent start.

Disneyland Trip Day 2: Disneyland! Gluten Free Adventures

very time I hit up Disney World I’ve always thought about what Disneyland was like since I forgot what it was like since it’s been so long since I went. I went when I was 12 years old and hardly remember anything.

Got dropped off by our Uber, guess we walk from here (don’t drive, uber!)

I have to say hands down after visiting, Disneyland is way better than Florida’s Magic Kingdom, that is for sure. It’s real small, quaint and charming with a light sense of magic. Now Disney World gives you the magic for sure, Disneyland was a little hard to get into since it’s in the middle of the hustle and bustle of everything California.

Look’s like it’s going to be a busy ass day! (September 12th, 2017)

The entrance isn’t what I remember but it’s just as amazing as could imagine.

Fake Mickey 1933 World Fair Knifes

Quick Update Note: I’ve been working alot so haven’t had time to update, but still very active! I will update soon as time permits, here is a dope article I found when doing some research on some knifes I wanted to purchase. I’ve been collecting 1930’s Disney Merch and almost lost $50 to a fake, good thing I found this article, will post here.

 

original article by: RealorRepro

So Walt didn’t feature any rides at the Worlds Fair in Chicago however he did have a few merchandise items there unlike the 1964 World’s Fair. So check this read out.

There’s an old saying that if you repeat a lie often enough, people will eventually believe it. That applies not only to words but also to reproductions of antiques and collectibles.

Take the case of the Mickey Mouse 1933 Worlds Fair pocket knife.

A collector once wrote to ACRN to report this knife was being reproduced. He owned an original for which he paid $115. He wanted to let us know he found a reproduction in a nearby antique mall for only $8

WDW Day 5: Universal Studios & Harry Potter

Looks like a cat to me.

Day 5 WDW: Well not really WDW but still all in the same universe of sorts, we wanted to come specifically to check out Diagon Alley since last time the park was closing and we didn’t even discover it until by accident since it’s hidden! Crazy I know but finally we made it so heres some photos of our adventure! I’m not sure if it was because of the people or weather or park in general but this time around Universal Orlando seemed down right “ghetto” to me in a way.. I don’t know why.. it seems they have lost their class.

Famous Earth at the entry way!

Not sure why we wanted to check this place out, but none the less Hello Kitty was there. Their marketing team is whack trying to say Hello Kitty is not a fucking cat, what’s wrong with chu?

Walt Disney World Preview Center 1971

On my latest trip to Walt Disney World I saw a video of abandoned Disney stuff and one of them was the old Walt Disney World preview center. It was so close to our hotel and the Disney parks I had to go, so check out a little history and some of the photos I took of myself at the Preview Center below! Now it’s called the Amateur Athletic Union but it still looks like the preview center and even has a huge Mickey on the inside.

Here’s a little history about it below:

In mid-January, 1970, the Walt Disney World Preview Center became the first building on WDW property to be opened to the public. Near the intersection of Interstate 4 and State Road 535, the thoroughly modern glass, concrete and steel structure was situated on the southern shoreline of Lake Buena Vista along the then-quiet Preview Boulevard. This roadway would later become Hotel Plaza Boulevard, a main artery serving traffic to the WDW Village and a gathering of hotels. Hit Read More to see my full gallery

WDW Day 4 PM: Animal Kingdom!

I think they are pink because they eat shrimp?

After our fishing excursion we went back to our hotel Port Orleans and changed and showered the fish off of us. Then set sail in our trusted minivan to Animal Kingdom (which we knew would be the hardest day). Since none of us are in shape and it’s the most treacherous territory to walk and it was also super hot that day which we were hoping would be a cool day!

Anyways I love Animal Kingdom, especially since Safari Mickey is my version of Mickey.

 

These parrots love to greet you when you walk in. No crackers pls (there gluten free).

Where to now? (busts out map) ok hit read more.

WDW Day 4 AM: Guided Fishing Excursion

Disney Fishing Guide

So if you have someone you know who loves to fish, or you love to fish you can book a guided fishing excursion at Disney World. When I was younger we did it at EPCOT in the middle of the world showcase which was awesome!

This time around we booked it my for my dad and the guide took us to Disney Springs. We were picked up from our hotel at Port Orleans, and off we went on a Pontoon boat through the back alley’s of Disney Springs.

I’ll post a link of the site to book this, I think it was like $200 for 2 hours, and they include everything, sodas, rods, reels, and a guide who does all the work for you. Besides the fishing part the actual boat ride and just cruising around Disney Springs was way more awesome and adventurous then I thought it was going to be.
