Florida Vacation

03 May 2013

Like I said the other day I was away on vacation for about a week in Orlando, Florida. I went with Matt and we met up with my family there. We had such an amazing time, it was so much fun. The weather was absolutely amazing, and it wasn't that crowded at the parks. We picked the best time to go! Also, we honestly did so much. For the six days we were there we filled them up.
Day One

Starting with Day One right after we landed we went to Daytona Beach to just hang out and enjoy the beach since we couldn't check into our resort yet. I seriously loved Daytona. It was so fun, and Matt and I went and found this taffy place that apparently has the best taffy and I really do they do! We enjoyed the warm weather, and even built a sand castle. I wish I lived by the beach though, all the crappy weather in Utah isn't helping either. After the beach we went back to our resort and just enjoyed the pool and hot tub for the rest of the night. I was obsessed with our resort, everyone who worked there was so nice and friendly, and it was just plain beautiful!
Day Two
Matt, my sister, and I went to Islands of Adventure of Universal Studios this day. Lines were so not bad at all. I think the longest we waited was twenty minutes? But this is the park where they had the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! I was so excited to see the place, and let me tell you they did not dissapoint!! It was so cool, and I really think they did an amazing job portraying everything. This park was so much, my favorite part had to be the Harry Potter part, and also my favorite ride was in the Harry Potter world. It was inside the castle. Hermione casts a spell on us and we are then on a broom flying, they take you on the adventure and its SO cool! You really feel like you're actually doing it. It was me and Matt's favorite ride for sure!
Day Three
This day we headed over to Universal Studios, its a pretty fun park, all geared towards movies. It wasn't my favorite park but they did have this ride that I totally loved. I don't remember what it was called, I think Rock It? But its a roller coaster where you can choose your music to listen to while you ride the ride. Okay so I hate roller coasters, they scare me so much, but everyone left me no choice during this trip and I had to ride them. But I actually loved this roller coaster SO much, yes it was scary but a good scary, and the music made it a blast! I liked this ride so much that I went on it twice! That just shows you right there how much I liked it haha. But there were some other good rides there too, like the Mummy, we rode this one twice and we didn't even have to wait in a line. I'm telling y'all visit Orlando and the parks either April after the whole Spring Break craziness or in September when everyone just goes back to school. Its so nice being here without lines.
Day Four
This day was AMAZING because we were in DISNEYWORLD!!!!! The happiest place on Earth it is! We had so much fun! We loved all the rides, they're classics, its what you grow up with and love so much! Two really cool things about this day though were the new Fantasy Land! They've expanded it, and its pretty cool. They added the Beast's castle and Prince Eric's castle. We got to ride the Ariel ride in Prince Eric's castle and I loved it!! You get on a sea shell and take a ride on the story of the Little Mermaid! Its pretty cool what they've done with the place. But what was me and Matt's favorite thing of all was the Castle Light Show!! Y'all this is seriously so cool, and amazing. Its hard to explain so just Youtube it and you can watch some of it! Its so beautiful and makes you fall in love with the magic of Disney.
Day Five
We all just relaxed at the resort this day and honestly I loved it, because my feet were killing me by that point and I needed a break! I'd say we got pretty tan, I have a serious tan line. But Matt is so good with kids, it makes me love him so much more. It was so cute watching him play with my younger siblings. He's going to be such a great dad! But later that night, me and Matt spent our last night going to Downtown Disney. We grabbed some dinner and walked around. It was fun, and I loved it there, there's a lot to see and shop and there was some great entertainment.
Day Six
We hit the pool again and just relaxed, and later that night we headed home. Or we were supposed to. Our flight in Orlando to Atlanta got delayed so we missed our flight connection. Our airline put us on the next flight out of there the next morning, but they didn't give us a hotel so we stayed the night in the Atlanta Airport! It sucked so bad. I was miserable, and we slept on the floor haha. But we're home now and I'm sure a couple years down the rode we'll look back and laugh about this moment.

But the trip was amazing and we had a blast! Now its back to reality, I'm working and also doing an internship at Good Things Utah and the Daily Dish this summer!
