How can anyone fly to Orlando, and not go to the happiest place on earth? After the red eye flight from San Francisco to Florida, we freshened up a little (Sleep? What is sleep? Kids don’t need sleep. And jetlag only happens to adults.), and headed straight to Disney World’s Magic Kingdom.
It still holds the record for the most visited theme park in the world. And boy, was it cramped in there! I got used to the smaller HK and Tokyo Disneyland theme parks where the crowds are usually more manageable, lol. Didn’t stop us from enjoying the rides though!
Disney World, serving happiness for more than 40 years now. Thank God for bringing Walt Disney to the world!
As soon as we entered, there was a parade along the Main Street! Lucky, lucky!
Alternate outfits for Mickey and Minnie. Mickey, your sneaker game…
Little Princess Jasmine waiting for the parade to finish.
Had brunch at Tomorrowland. YAAAS to retro-futurism, but I couldn’t take good photos because THERE WERE STROLLERS PARKED EVERYWHERE. All the pathways were about 50% occupied by baby strollers!
What’s wrong, Aladdin?
I VOLUNTEER AS TRIBUTE. Oops, wrong movie.
Disney couples dancing on stage! So cute.
While my parents and brothers were having coffee somewhere (We finally got to admit to ourselves that we are full-grown caffeine-dependent adults, not kids, lol), I managed to catch another parade!
Just in time for my favorite Disney movie - Beauty and the Beast!
SO MANY THINGS HAPPENING IN DISNEY WORLD, SO LITTLE TIME. One short toilet break, and you might just miss the important events. I’m so lucky I got to catch this particular parade, because the floats were beautiful! Also got to see the characters up close without having to line up for a photo.
First time to see Anna and Elsa (and Olaf)!
The Princess and the Frog. Tiana and Prince Naveen’s costumes <3
And at last I see the liiight~
Peter Pan and Wendy say hello!
Tink is not amused!
HIGHLIGHT OF THE PARADE. Ariel was everything. The float was perfect, and nothing hurt.
Our fate lives within us, you only have to be brave enough to see it.
The fairies from Sleeping Beauty!
Maleficent was showing back then, and with all the movie hype, it was only natural for the people to cheer when this badass steampunk dragon started breathing fire!
You don’t say!
Every little girl’s dream.
There was a store in Disney World just dedicated to these costumes! To be a young girl again…
Make your own lightsaber. More Star Wars photos in my next post!
HAGGARD. But wait, let me take an #ootd…
It was my mom’s birthday, so we went to a fancy place for dinner - Kouzzina by Cat Cora at Boardwalk. But I couldn’t remember most of it as I was pretty much dead from exhaustion/lack of sleep/jetlag, haha. This is what I get from not exercising!
Disney Hollywood Studios, Universal Studios, and a separate Wizarding World of Harry Potter post coming soon!
