“Magic Bands” Cedar Park, 2017

こんばんは!How’s it going?

Tonight we bought park tickets for our upcoming Disney World trip! We’ll have two full days visiting the parks and we’ve decided to go to EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Initially, I was disappointed to not be visiting the Magic Kingdom… I mean, it’s the classic park! But we’ve gone to it many times (and I’d count Disneyland with it since they are so similar), and the more I thought about it, the more I think it would be better to spend our limited time in a location-specific park. For instance, if I had to choose between visiting Tokyo Disneyland or DisneySea, I’d have to choose the latter. Still, I’ll miss visiting Tomorrowland, Adventureland, Fantasyland and all the classic rides…

Anyways, one attraction we wanted to check out is the new Frozen Ever After ride in EPCOT’s Norway area. It used to be a very unpopular ride called Maelstrom, where you traveled back to the time of the Vikings, but then also ended up alongside huge, modern tankers. I actually thought it was a fun ride! I’ll let you all know if Frozen Ever After is better. 😜

We tried to get our FastPass+ for Frozen Ever After, but they were unavailable. 😩 So I guess we’ll just head there as soon as the park opens. I’m hoping it won’t be too bad a line, but we’ll probably be so excited it won’t matter. FYI, we got FastPasses for Test Track and Toy Story Mania the following day.

After writing this post, I’m pretty fired up about the Disney trip. Can’t wait!

おやすみなさい!
