Knights in Armour to Mickey Mouse!

This trip started the bug thats still inside me "The Travel Bug"! This was my very first vacation without my parents when I was still in high school. Visiting Disney World and especially Epcot seeing the different countries and their customs made me want to travel even more! And don't forget sampling all the different foods!

I went with my graduating class from high school. All my friends were on this trip-- what more could you ask for! This was the very first time that I flew on a airplane, and it sure wasn't going to be the last.

The school chapperones had everything well planned when we arrived in Florida there were buses waiting to take us to our first destination, Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament. We had a lot to look forward to and a busy schedule ahead we were going to visit The Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Wet 'n Wild and Sea World. ${QuickSuggestions} Wear comfortable shoes your going to do plenty of walking through all the parks.

Don't forget your camera and wear plenty of sunscreen and suntan lotion!${BestWay} We stayed a short distance from the parks so we had to take a bus to all the attractions. Once you're in the Magic Kingdom and Epcot you can take the Monorail back and forth to the parks. Otherwise, the only way around is walking.

Days Inn

This was a nice motel, the rooms were a good size with two double beds which was good since I had to share it with three other girls. It had a large in-ground pool and a Restaurant.

This was a nice place to stay and it was close to all the parks. It’s a lot cheaper to stay outside of Disney World. If you don’t have a car you can take a bus to get to the parks.

Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by Dreamtime on February 22, 2001

This was a very interesting experience. The arena was separated by sections with different colors. Whichever section you're in is the color which your knight wears and you have to root for your knight. The louder the section cheers the better your knight will fight! As the knights are competing in different activities dinner is served.

Dinner is a four-course meal with all the trimmings, except for silverware! Yes, you must eat your food with your hands!! From the soup in Medieval bowls to the chicken and ribs and even dessert. The food is served by "Wenches" and if you need to get her attention you have to yell "Wench get me a drink" or whatever you need.

We all really enjoyed ourselves, maybe because our knight won the Jousting!! The knights ride beautiful Andalusian Horses and they all put on a great show!

Wet 'n Wild

This was a fun day in the hot Florida sun. They have a giant wave pool where every fifteen minutes or so a horn will blow and then all of a sudden it feels like your in the ocean! You can rent Boogie Boards and surf the waves, or you can just sit in the shallow part and let the waves roll over you. It's just like being at the beach, without the sand!

There are plenty of water slides and other rides to keep you busy for the entire day! But remember your sun screen or a cover up, or you'll feel like a french fry when you leave!

This is a park filled with different sea animals from Sea Lions and Dolphins to Killer Whales. It's spread out over 200 acres with shops and shows to keep you entertained all day. They have different water tanks set up so that you can touch a dolphin as it swims on by, or even a Sting Ray!

The Magic Kingdom and Epcot

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by Dreamtime on February 23, 2001

As soon as you walk through the gates and see Main Street USA in front of you, it's like you walked into another world! I was amazed at how many people were there and there was no trash, not even a cigarette butt on the street! The Maintenance workers really take pride in keeping the park clean!

There is so much to see and do in the park that words cannot even begin to describe. In the Magic Kingdom you can visit Fantasyland, Tommorrowland, Frontierland and Adventureland. In Epcot my favorite place was the world showcase where you can visit American Adventure, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Morocco, Norway and the United Kingdom. There are so many different places to eat inside the parks, but most of them require reservations! One of my favorite places to eat was inside of Cinderella's Castle, They serve great food and if your there when it's dark and you are sitting by the window you'll have a great view of the fireworks that go off right above the castle!
