    Optimus Eo's Post Trip report!!!!

    I am now officially back from Disney World! It was an awesome trip and I will have to slowly report what happened day by day.

    Day 1...We arrived at Carribbean Beach Resort at around 3:30 PM in the afternoon and checked in at the main desk. Things went fairly smoothly and off to our room we went. We ended up staying in a Nemo theme room. It fit the Carribbean theme an was not overdone. We unpacked our car and got ready to go out for the night. We headed out to Downtown Disney and once we got off of the bus we started to look around. The new design your own T-Shirt place by Hanes was really cool. We looked around a lot of the shops and made a short list of stuff that we would buy by the end of the trip. We slowly got hungry for dinner and headed for Planet Hollywood since we had a coupon for 15 dollars off of our meal. I got a burger and my wife got boneless hot wings. Overall, the food was good and the atmosphere was fine if you don't mind really loud chatter. Food= B atmosphere = B. Overall it was what I expected. We eventually went back to our room and went to bed to get ready for our day in the Magic Kingdom.

    Nice start...did you have to request a Nemo room or did they just give it to you?

    I do have pics and will try to add some as I go. I am a little upset right now because I had about three more paragraphs done and my computer decided to run updates! I will have to do this little by little.

    Re: Optimus Eo's Post Trip report!!!!

    Day 2...My wife and I got up between 6 and 6:30 to get ready for the Magic Kingdom. We headed to the bus around 8 and was able to get to the park around 8:30. We were very excited because we had breakfast reservations at The Crystal Palace at 9:30. We had time to ride a few rides so we went over to Pirates of the Carribbean. Walked right on. Ride is still very classic and nostalgic, even with the addition of Jack Sparrow. Classic wise I would rate it an A, overall, probably a C+. We then hopped on Splash Mountain where we came veryclose to getting very wet. You don't get wet from the plunge, you get wet from the cannons shooting to the sides! Great ride! One of my all time favorites. Classic= A, overall=A.

    From Splash, we headed back to The Crystal Palace where we stuffed our face until our hearts content. The Free Diney Dining Plan was awesome! It also came with a crazy amount of food. The food was good and the characters were out greeting everyone a lot also. I have a picture of my wife and Eeyore, Pooh, Tigger and Piglet. I may have done this even if I had to pay. The food was about a B+ and the price was around 24 bucks a person if we would of had to pay for it. Overall about a B. From here we headed towards the Haunted Mansion. Good ride with Great theming. I like the newer staircase area. Classic= A, overall a B.

    We then went to Fantasyland and knocked out the rides Pooh, Peter Pan, Snow White and Dumbo. All great rides for children and that's why we did them. We wanted to see how we thought our children of the future would like those rides. I also got some great video of the Fantasyland expansion from high in the sky from Dumbo. All good rides for kids, and decent rides for adults. Nostalgic for me because I remeber them all except for Pooh as a child. Peter Pan is my favorite from these rides. Small World and Tea Cups were closed down. I didn't know the Tea Cups were going to be shut down. My wife and I were disappointed because we really love the Tea Cups.

    Re: Optimus Eo's Post Trip report!!!!

    From there we went and ot a Fastpass for Space Mountain and walked on the Midway Peoplemover. This is a great ride to sit down, relax, catch the wind in your hair and cool off. It is also a great place to get many pictures. Love this ride. We then went on Buzz Light years Space Ranger Spin. Not very classic, but still a very fun ride for all ages. Solid B. We then went on the Carousel of Progress. Very Classic and Nostalgic. Good place to sit down and cool off. They need to update the last scene again. It looks like it takes place in about 1994. Classic wise A, overall C. This ride is not very popular because it does not hold the attention span of people who play on cell phones or PSP's or other devices. You really do have to have a big attentio span for this show. We then took advantage of our fastpass for Space Mountain. This ride is a little more intense than I remeber it. It feels a little smoother than I remeber it and the drops seem a little steeper. Classic=A, Overall=A.

    From here we knocked out the Laugh Floor and Stitch. Laugh Floor is cute and very interactive. Very well done. A overall. Stitch is so so. Leaves a lot to be desired. With as much creative genious as Disney as, they could do much better. Overall D+. I believe from there we were hungry enough for dinner so we went and used a counter service credit at the Columbia Harbor House. I had the fried shrimp meand and my wife had the chicken tenders meal. Great food and plent of it! AAAAA. We then walked backed to Haunted Mansion and had about a 10 minute wait. Once done there, we were told we needed to leave because we did not purchase the MNSSHP arm band.

    We thought we had until 9 the first night but we left around 7:30. We then went to the Polynesian to find out where the Spirit of Aloha was going to be held at. We walked around the shops and found the spor for the Aloha show. We then caught the monorail back to Magic Kingdom and headed back to the resort to catch some zzzzzzs.
