Disney's Hollywood Studios

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "Disney MGM"

Quote:
History: Disney's MGM studios were officially opened in 1989, and spans approximately 135 acres in size. It has become one of the main tourist attractions Disney has to offer, attracting millions of people all year round. The parks concept came from the original idea of Epcot, the developers wanted something different to what Epcot was already offering, and thus they decided on a movie epic concept that would attract a wider range of fans. Tickets and Prices: Now the prices of tickets vary from how many attractions you plan on visiting and the duration of your stay. My advice is that if you are staying for longer than 4 days you should purchase a 7 day theme park pa...Read More

Walt Disney World Resort Epcot Theme Park

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "Epcot Centre"

Quote:
History: Well it must be said that the Epcot centre does have a huge history, some of which people may not have known. The park was officially opened on October 1st 1982, at the time it was the largest theme park worldwide, however this was then overtaken by the Disney Animal Kingdom. The construction costs were estimated at over $1.2 billion, and took over three years to construct. The park is approximately 260 acres long. The unique history of the development of Epcot is not known to many people, particular the millions that visit it every year. During the 60's the original idea was to create a model community. This community would be twenty thousand residents strong, all of whom would h...Read More

This next review is about my experience at the Luxor hotel in Las Vegas Nevada. I went to Las Vegas once before, which I think most people would no if they had read some of my previous reviews, however the excitement and thrill of Vegas once again attracted me to the Sin City. Hotel Information:Ok so let’s give some background information about the hotel, the Luxor hotel is located in Paradise, Nevada, along the main Las Vegas Strip, which has the famous casinos and hotels. Construction began on the Luxor in 1991, with the idea of creating the first fully themed hotel resort in Las Vegas; the idea was to create an Egyptian theme, which revolved around creating a pyramid design ...Read More

Well having done quite a few reviews of my time in different American states, my next review is focussing more on a specific tourist attraction, rather than my visit to the state, the reason being that this attraction has so much talking time, theirs millions of things to describe about it, and to be honest its actually one im going to enjoy the most talking about. This new review is about the beautiful, magnificent universal studios in Orlando FloridaHistory: Universal studios first opened on June 1990 and became universals second theme park after the original one was opened in Hollywood, its huge size and attractions made it a direct competitor with Disney Land, which had been arou...Read More

New Orleans

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "New Orleans, Louisiana"

Quote:
History:New Orleans City is the largest city in the state of Louisiana, and is one of the major US ports in America. It's evident that New Orleans has a French feel to it, and obviously this is natural considering the French found the city in the early 1700's.However, during the 1800's the city was captured by the Spanish, until Napoleon sold the land to the US in 1803. The European influence is still evident today, with the existence of the French Quarter of New Orleans, everything from the food, fashion, and architecture allows us to get an in-depth look at its history, its past and is growth. Ok so first impressions, after the long tiring plane ride, I finally land at Louis ...Read More
