    It's the oddities, the spectacle, the thrill of the rides and that sometimes fantasy and imagination make for an exciting time.

    It's an escape from the day to day drudgery and in knowing the realization that sometimes reality sucks.

    In a nut shell...

    This doesn't have much of Universal Studios Orlando, but a link of part of that little adventure South anyway.

    A lot of the Chinese in your photos look healthier and are better dressed than the zero dollar trash that visits Thailand

    Cheers for that.. I'll have a look. I was looking at the website for Disney in Orlando last night.. holy shiat. The prices are astronomical. Especially for us Canadians.. our dollar isn't worth as much. It is $350 CAD for a two day pass. I only paid $70 for a one day pass here. The park in Orlando looks super amazing though.

    Great pics.

    Was there a parade on Main Street in the morning & evening? I enjoyed that parade. Turns out there were lots of Pinoy workers in HK Disney, either as dancers or masked/costumed characters. I overheard them talking about their work, shifts, breaks, etc on the metro from Disney.

    Re: ticket prices, I think it's now ~80 USD for a 1-day ticket, but cheaper if you buy it online or through sites like Klook (a colleague asked me about Klook). When I went in 2012, it was ~50 USD.

    Re: superficiality - yes, theme parks are superficial. But as Fish said, it offers a day's respite from reality. There are also rides - for kids young and old, so that's fun too.

    As one who grew up watching Disney films and princesses, a visit to a Disneyland is one tick off the bucket list. I still know the lyrics of "Part of Your World" and Belle's song from Beauty and the Beast. The animated movies came out when I was a kid. Not to mention Jasmine's part in "A whole new world", as it was sung by Lea Salonga, and we Pinoys were proud that she had entered the world stage via Miss Saigon, Les Miserables and Alladin. Cheers, TB!

    ^I didn't see the parade and I believe we missed the fireworks as well. We were eating at the cheesecake factory at that time.
    I forgot to mention that there is a big section called DisneyTown with many stores you can buy souvenirs (I bought a Disney ring) as well as many restaurants. They have a Blue Frog, Element Fresh, Cheesecake Factory, Yunnan Restaurant and a few Japanese restaurants to name a few.
    We ate at the Cheesecake Factory and it was delicious, yet expensive.





    Many cheesecakes to choose from.
