Just got back from the Allstar Sports Resort at Walt Disney World where I spent three days and three nights with the family. It was really a blast. We left Ocala at around 3 p.m. on the 24th and got to Walt Disney at around 5:30 pm. We got something to eat real quickly at the cafeteria on the premises and then went back to our rooms to relax for the night to get ready for the next day.
Marcus and Cheyenne were all giggly and giddy from the anticipation of seeing Mickey Mouse and all the other Disney stuff. We barely slept that night, in fact, we got up at about 4 a.m. because Cheyenne messed with the clock.
We left the hotel at around 10am on Christmas day for the Magic Kingdom theme park. We got to the park at about 11 o’clock. The day started off rainy and cold, but about an hour in, it dried up and the sun came out.
We visited several areas of the theme park. Marcus and Cheyenne got their faces painted – Marcus was a Tiger and Cheyenne was Minnie mouse. They both looked great. We then bought ice cream cakes, rode the carousel, watched several parades, ate pizza, walked around the park ,visited several places again, rode a couple more rides, watched the highlight of the day – the fireworks, and finally a night parade. We got home after midnight.
The next day we had breakfast and left for MGM Studios Theme Park at about 9 a.m. While the celebration the day before at Magic Kingdom was great, we did not get a chance to ride as many rides in as we wanted – it was just too crowded. The following day, however, at MGM studio theme park, it was quite the opposite. We were able to get on most of the rides without much delay. The most memorable event of the day for me was Fantasmic. It was a water show that brought together all the good and evil characters from Disney productions. It was especially memorable to me because it was at night; it was cold; and I had my family all together in one place. It was beautiful and simply magical.
We got home from MGM at around nine o’clock the second day. We stopped in the cafeteria got some hot chocolate and then went up to our rooms. We chilled out for the night, got up the next day, hang out for a while at the resort, took some pictures and then got on the way back to Ocala.
