|Cinderella's Castle at the Magic Kingdom|
This was my first time in Florida and I had the pleasure of going to Universal Studios one day and to Disney's Magic Kingdom on another. Both were pretty cool parks to walk around. There's a lot to look at, even if you don't go on many rides. I've always been a fan of Disney--especially the soundtracks. (Alan Menken is one of my favourites!). As a kid, I would see the commercials for vacations in Disney Land or Disney World, I'm not exactly sure which one. My young brain only caught on to "Disney." I knew it was beyond what we could do as a family, but I always wanted to go.
I'm glad that I was at last able to go to at least one of the parks. I hope that sometime in the future I will be able to go to the others as well. The building structures and the layout of the Magic Kingdom was really pretty. We got there just in time for the afternoon parade. Looking at the costumes as the people and floats went by, I couldn't believe what they were wearing in the heat. Some of the cast members were dripping with sweat! What troopers.

Universal also had some really cool buildings relating to the movies. The Harry Potter sections were my favourite and I even got a picture with the Night Bus like a cool tourist.
