    Been here a few times now & love it. Just absolutely amazing, the scenery, the interaction in the shop windows & of course the rides. Of all the themed areas in the Orlando theme parks, this is with out a doubt the most incredible.
    Love all the themed rides but my fave has to be the Hagrid coaster. I’m not a coaster fan, I can do the Mummy, space mountain & Slinky but not much else. I find Hagrid coaster scary, as it’s so fast, but not in a bad way, I just grin & laugh all the way around.
    Two things - , please stop the London taxi hut selling the jacket potatoes with the beef filling as a ‘shepherds pie filling’ (lamb) when it should be a ‘cottage pie filling’ (beef), very poor - potatoes also came with a tablespoon of filling in it, very measly!
    - Also, some of the waiting times are well out. The train said 15 minutes but took 50, Hagrid said 70 but took 110 and on another time, said 90 minutes but only took 40 mins!! Really should be more accurate.
    But otherwise all good! 😃

    This place is very entertaining. Rode the Everest roller coaster which was outstanding. Not recommended for those young or wary of roller coasters. Will scare those two groups. Couldn’t get in Avatar ride as it’s very popular. Animal displays are very good. Be prepared to walk as the park is huge. Definitely worth the visit.

    really enjoyed Universal, once we got in!
    It was like a cattle market and a bit of a free for all. Not much organisation but once in it was fine, walking around the sets/ streets. It was nice & I found there were more characters out to meet and greet. We saw more than we did throughout all our days at Disney in 1 afternoon at Universal. We ate in Simpson land at Mo’s tavern. There was a few choices & prices weren’t too bad. Download the app to check que times. They were quite bad the day we went, three hours for the Hogwarts express across to Island of adventure so we walked it instead in 20 Minutes. Would have been nice to go on the train as it’s a ride in itself. Diagonal alley by far the busiest section but you have to brave it as it is definitely worth seeing. They had lots of street entertainment going on.

    Had one of the most amazing experiences that will be cherished for a lifetime. The staff were very polite and helpful. Judith Matta was our server and she was very helpful and polite. She was very informative and helped us have a productive and fun day at Discovery cove. Ofcourse, the dolphins were amazing. We all love Dot!!

    Not my favourite of the Magic Kingdoms - Orlando is missing quite a bit as compared to some others… and I am not a fan of the new Genie + rubbish. If Disney must make more $$$, charge more for tickets but bring back fast pass. Having said that, we somehow managed to get on most rides we wanted but spending so long in queues for everything - rides / food / bathrooms - really takes the shine off the day.

    Rides for everyone, education for all visiting the countries, drinks for the adults in every country! I've always enjoyed visiting Epcot because I enjoy the rides/food/drinks that it offers. It's not Magic Kingdom kid like, but more educational Disney like experience for all ages. Test Track and Soarin are my favorite rides worth the wait.

    Joyce provided us with excellent service while dining at the Sbarro/Johnny Rockets eating spot. Joyce was extremely helpful, friendly, and professional. We enjoyed talking with Joyce, her service helped make our day a great experience.

    Seaworld, I had mixed feelings about visiting Seaworld especially after watching Black fish. However my partner really wanted to go and as they will no longer be breeding Orca’s which is great I agreed to go. I have to say despite myself I had a great time. It was the best day out we’ve had & we’ve been to all Disney parks & both Universal studios. Shows were all brilliant we saw them all a few times because there is no limit to how many times you can watch the shows. We ate at the underwater restaurant. As there was only 2 of us we didn’t have to wait long for a table but if you really want to eat there book it as the food is delicious but it is popular.
    We missed the Orca underwater viewing area much to my disappointment as once it goes
    dark they close it so be prepared & get there during the day don’t leave it until later. We watched the ice skating show & we were then in the perfect place to sit and watch the fireworks so I advise staying until the end go watch the ice skating & then the fireworks follow immediately afterwards.
    I would have like to have seen more in the tank for the dolphins. The underwater viewing tank is just a concrete bottom no stimulation for the dolphins. Maybe they have another tank but this one doesn’t reflect in the animals best interests. I know they give the animals toys to play with as we saw this but still I would like to see the tanks as natural as possible. The beluga tank had a lot more of this.
    You can actually feed the sea lions & the stingrays which is great fun. Although it is $7 for 4 small fish. The rides are better rides than any at the Disney parks if you like rides.
    Overall a very enjoyable day out. As good as it was I am glad the Orca breeding program has been stopped.

    Located on the grounds of Disneyland Resort and also one of Walt Disney's top amusement parks. The large space with magnificent castles, exciting games and impressive scenery in this park will bring you memorable moments in your trip to America.

    Great place to spend a few hours something different from the parks.The multi ticket makes it good value for money.

    First off, I would like to say that I would not come back hear without my sister doing the planning. We got a two day park-hopper. If we hadn't purchased Genie-plus and also paid the premium price for Rise of the Resistance and Guardians of the Galaxy, I doubt we would have ridden any of the good rides. My sister had to keep scheduling all the rides to get in the lightning lane (equivalent to Universal's express pass) all day long. What a pain! At least the rides were working! Ride and Guardians were definitely the highlights of the trip. Don't bother with the Ratatouille ride unless you have small kids. Nothing great, considering the interest in the ride. Do not overlook the original Star Wars ride tucked away in the World Celebration section of EPCOT. It has been updated to reflect the final trilogy. The whole Star Wars section of Hollywood Studios if really excellent. It like walking around on a movie set. Even the bathrooms continue the decor!

    It was pretty nuts in EPCOT due to the wine and food festival and the 50th anniversary. The other rides in the EPCOT World Celebration area could use some serious updating.

    We ate at the Angel Inn Restaurante in Mexico, which is still excellent (I was last in EPCOT about 30 years ago). Adults, if you like avocado and you like margueritas, get the avocado marguerita. Awesome!

    If they would make the Genie service more like the Universal Express pass, I would be more amenable to visiting more often.

    This ride is located in the Norway pavilion. It is one of the few rides in EPCOT so it can get very long lines. If you are going to visit, get in line early. We have not been on this rides since with was refurbished from the old Norway rides. They have improved the entrance to have more of a village theme that you are walking through prior to being guided onto a boat that fits about 12-15 people. The basics of the ride are the same. If you follow the Frozen movie then you will understand the various parts of the ride but if you do not it may seem to be a disjointed series of scenes. We were in the back of the boat and it seemed a little rougher (bumpier) from the last time. Also, the seats were a little wet from the small splash down that the boat does on part of the ride. Overall, it is a pleasant and fun ride with some neat effects. I definitely recommend riding it if you get a chance.

    I like this ride, as it’s just my pace and it’s not scary or thrilling, just a chilled boat ride. And the effects are amazing. But it only lasts like 4 minutes and with the new Genie / LL thing that Disney are cashing in on, it makes the stand by queues ridiculous. We waited TWO hours to get on this. They were letting ten standby people on for every 50 (at least) LL people. I totally understand you get what you pay for but I feel this has ruined the queue times and for us, we won’t be doing that ride again. It’s just not worth the tiredness and hassle even for teenagers so I’d hate queuing with littler kids.
