Scaling the rock formations in Central Park
Thanks to Grandma and Grandpa for inviting us to camp with them and go to Hershey, PA! We had so much fun
With Universal a complete bust, I decided to sleep in while Carter and Mommy went to the park. In the afternoon, however, it was pool time!
Despite much of the day being trapped on a broken ride or waiting for a broken ride, Carter declared Universal “Better than Disney.” We started the day in Harry Potter’s world which turns out to be quite different than my own. Carter did get a wand and enjoyed performing his own magic throughout the park, so you can see a couple videos below of that. I needed to nap in the middle of the day after riding one too many of the same 14D rides (okay, they claim only 4 dimensions) repackaged with different heroes and villains. I am not angry. Anyway, much fun was had by Carter.
We went back to Epcot to run on the Test Track again (Daddy won and made the daily leader board, but he would never brag about that). Then we saw Figment and toured the International Pavilion. The highlight was a great lunch at Restaurant Marrakesh. Then we saw some model tralns, checked out, and got to Universal Studios. We only got to ride Spiderman and the Jurassic Park River Adventure. Both were big hits. Can’t wait for tomorrow.
Started the morning at Animal Kingdom. Escape from Everest was Carter’s favorite ride so far. Dinoland was not as big of a hit as we expected but we still enjoyed it. We came back to the hotel to go swimming at the resort but got rained out. Then Carter was off to Club DIsney while mom and dad went out to a nice dinner at Narcoossee’s.
Day two was getting up early to hit Epcot. Test Track and Mission Space were big hits, as was Soarin’. You can even see a commercial for the car Carter built here. We also looked up some old photo. Before too long we crashed out, but then it was back to The Magic Kingdom for another pass on Space Mountain, The Tomorrowland Speedway, and the Tea Cups.
I had a great time camping out with my boy and some new friends, dinosaur and human.
Magicbands arrived… can’t wait!
