Wow have we done a lot in the past few months! We have done 3 main things though: Discovery Cove trainer for a day, Universal Studios, and Walt Disney World. These things were so fun, I had to talk about them in a blog.
First up was Discovery Cove, with the Trainer for a Day experience. This was certainly something to remember! We went and fed some birds and otters. We got to touch an armadillo and a SLOTH! I was so exited! But not as exited as my mom. Then we moved on to the water portion of the adventure. We went snorkeling, which I loved. We also got to feed rays and fish. They bashed into us and circled around us trying to get the food! I got to reach down and touch a fish. Next, we met an Epaulette shark. It was so tiny! Finally, we did my favorite thing, which was swim with dolphins!! We got to ride on their back and belly, and we got to kiss one! My favorite part was when two of them pushed on my feet with their noses. It was amazing!
Moving on to the theme parks, Universal came next. We got the VIP experience. We went on over 10 rides while we were there because we could skip to the front of the line. My favorite ride was the hulk ride. It goes upside down 9 times! We also got to visit an animation school, where students learn how to create and design movies. We saw a sound studio and a 3D printer. It was really cool to see that students helped make some famous movies. For dinner, we went to the Chocolate Emporium. The food was incredible! The milkshakes were mason jars with giant pieces of dessert on top. One of them was a confetti shake with a piece of cake on it! We had to get the desserts to go because we were so full.
Last but not least, Disney. You really do have a magical time! We went to all 4 parks, plus Disney Springs. The first and main park there was Magic Kingdom. It was where Cinderella's Castle stood towering over Main Street. We saw two muppet shows at the Hall of Presidents, plus a show about the presidents. We went on Space Mountain a bunch of times too. My favorite park, Animal Kingdom, came next. It was where my favorite ride was as well as the Safari rides. On the Safari ride, I saw a baby hippo, a baby giraffe, a baby elephant, and a baby warthog. That was so fun! We also went on this ride called Expedition Everest, where there's a museum of Yeti tracks and proof of Yeti existence. Next up, the famous Hollywood Studios. We rode the Rock'n'Rollercoaster with Aerosmith. We entered the Twilight Zone at the Tower of Terror. But my favorite part of Hollywood Studios was the Star Wars stuff. We met Chewbacca, BB-8, and Kylo Ren. Kylo Ren wanted me to join him, but I said no. He said I couldn't deny my destiny. There were also Storm Troopers wandering around the park at all times. Finally, a trip around the world at Epcot. It had the best food of all the parks. It also had the rides Test Track, Soarin', and Mission Space. But in all the parks, my favorite part of Disney was the ride Flight of Passage, where you turn into an Avatar and ride a banshee. It was a surreal experience. It feels like you're actually there. It was the best ride I've ever been on. Disney overall was an adventure I'll never forget.
