us trip 2015



let me get the first elephant in the room out of the way
before we start this long overdue blog - 
I have pink hair now.


done.


then I had a birthday,
my 24th to be exact.




Then I got all hyped to go to Walt Disney World, Orlando Florida.
A lot of flying was involved and I thought it was going to be amazing.

It kinda wasn't.

I also thought I would have the time and energy to make daily vlogs - 
which I obviously did not.

I was travelling with my parents and my girlfriend,
(
yes I have a girlfriend, let's move on.
btw if this came as a shock to you,
i can't believe you didn't know already.
we've been together for like 6 years.
where the hell have you been
all this time man?
)


after 15 hours from HKG > Dallas, Texas
a 4 hour wait for our 3 hour  flight from Dallas > Florida,
we got to the hotel at about midnight on the 26th (my birthday, US time)
Despite the horrendous jet lag, I was prepared to venture on at 8AM.
I was mentally prepared but sadly, my travel companions were not.
With barely enough time to sleep and rest,
my parents and my girlfriend were so sleep deprived
they couldn't make it past 3pm. 
So we all headed back to the hotel and slept the day away,
like we would get up after a 6 hour nap and it'd be 9pm...
This also happened again the next day...
I THEREFORE LOST 2 DAYS OF MY 5 DAY DISNEY TRIP!!!!!!
DO YOU KNOW HOW BIG WDW IS?!??!?!
3 DAYS IS NOT, I REPEAT, NOT ENOUGH.


There are 4 main parks + Disney Springs 
(which is practically a shopping/dining/entertainment park of its own)
So 5 locations with only 3 days to complete.
Needless to say I was so stressed out.
I missed a lot of things ALL because of JET LAG.
I was soooo close to changing my flight guys...

My parents stay for the first 2 days then left to stay at a friends.
mum did this at disney and dad did that outside of disney 



So it was just me and caro for the last 3 days at Disney.
We did our very best to see as much as possible.

Day 1 was super sunny + sleep deprived

Day 3 Florida gave us rain





We both had the same breakfast for all 5 days.
There was a whole canteen, loads of choices but we are boring, boring people
who refuse change...

On one jet lagged night, 
when we couldn't even be bothered to walk after the 6 hour nap
and just ordered DISNEY PIZZA from our hotel room.
WHAT?!?!

I was also so tired that on one ride
'Ellens Energy Adventure'
I fell asleep....
mind you, it was a 45 minute slow ride.
It was a glorious nap.


Here are some pictures on how awesome Disney was/is
despite how much more i have left to do...
NEXT YEAAARRR!!!!







I freaked out waaaay more 
when I spotted Mary Poppins 
more than seeing any other princess
^_^
I ran to her and the cast member said 
'Mary needs her break and will be back in 45 mins',
so I waited that whole 45 mins in the same spot
WA ITIN G FOR MARY.
worth ittttttttt

I think the 2 things I loved most about WDW are:

1. They celebrate villains which HK does not (shame on HK disneyland)

2. The characters stay in character like there is no tomorrow.
just full on commitment.

*
at one point it got awkward
cos Ariel talked to us for a really long time,
just making conversation.
Asking Caro what her watch is, because Ariel doesn't know what a 'watch' is.
And that it might be broken so she could bring it to Scuttle to fix
cos he fixed her Dingle Hopper.
and I couldn't stay in character so I just laughed like a blithering idiot.

mary poppins asked me if i knew where burt was
and she said he was 'as bad as the children' but then said
she was sure that
i was a very well behaved girl ^_^

and you can't put anything past Cinderella cos
she complimented my hair saying pink was her favourite colour
and I was like 'hey wait isn't your favourite colour blue? like your dress?'
and she turned the tables on me,
she corrected me by saying this blue dress was by her fairy godmother and
that her original dress that she made herself was actually
PINK.
I got owned.


Touche Cindy, touche.

So that's that for my Disney blog.
I know I was going to make a Disney giveaway but I couldn't!
DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I HAVE YET TO BUY!?

Fact:
my friends 3 year old kid asked me to help him buy a Zurg figure
because HK does not celebrate villains therefore not available at HK disneyland.
I saw many Zurg figures but thought I had time so I didn't get one...
so I am now in HK empty handed...
I have told his mum to not tell him....
because I will go back next year......
and GET HIM THAT ZURG.
(and you guys that giveaway)

please forgive me
T_______________T
