Our last day in Orlando was spent exploring Animal Kingdom and ticking off some final boxes at Hollywood Studios. With Joe being far more partial to a roller coaster than I, we made sure to tick off the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster, before hanging out with Woody and Buzz at Toy Story’s Midway Mania. Hollywood Studios were undoubtedly one of my favourite parts of Disney, and I loved the touches of classic film dotted about too- including the recreation of the Hollywood Chinese Theatre and their very own authentic collection of handprints, which were incredibly impressive (yup, there’s Audrey Hepburn there) as well as plenty of Star Wars fixes, too!
That’s of course not forgetting our miniature-safari stop off at Animal Kingdom. With the Lion King show on our agenda (which was absolutely incredible- and not just for the fact I got a good ol’ sing along)- as well as a couple of critter spottings and a quick hike up (and down) Everest- it felt like the perfect way to wrap up a jam packed tour of these incredible parks (which we definitely couldn’t have done without our fantastic guide, Dave)!
The whole time in the U.S (and Kenya, for that matter)- felt like a total whirlwind, so I really hope you’ve enjoyed the more travel-themed content this month. I know it’s been a little different to my normal style- but I hope I’ve been able to narrate the excitement of the last few weeks well, and thank you for staying tuned and being so lovely! I can’t believe I’ve been able to visit so many beautiful gems across the world, and it’s all thanks to you amazing readers, so thank you from the bottom of my suitcase. Here’s to being back on familiar grounds for a while…or a couple of weeks at least!
