Trip report Walt Disney World September and October 2013
« on: October 20, 2013, 04:03:18 PM »
Howdy all.


Are not gonna write too much, but me and my parents visited Walt Disney World in September and October this year, so I want to share a little trip report. Many pics and a little text.
Before we came to Disney World we also visited New York for five nights where we was at several attractions, including Disney Store at Times Square, before we headed to Atlanta for two nights and the World of Coca Cola museum.


At Disney World we stayed from September 28 to October 8, and we stayed at Disney's All Star Sport.
The only down part here is that the restaurant/cafe is closed for renovation for a couple of months, but they had a complimentary bus til All-Star Movies and Music hotels, so if Sports guests could use the restaurants/cafe there. The bus was no problem, as when we was finished with breakfast we just hop on the bus to the theme park we wanted.


Anyway; we arrived at Orlando airport and hoped went to get Disney's Magical Express. After we got the coupons, the bus was outside so we could just hop on.





Before we got to All-Star Sport we had did the online check in, so when we got there the check in operation was very smooth, and our rooms was ready.
After we had been to our rooms with the bag and relaxed a bit, we headed over to Downtown Disney for the evening, where among other browsed at World of Disney, and also took the boat over to West Side where we had some food at Wetsels Pretzel.






DAY 2
This day we had breakfast at All-Star Movies. It basically the same as All Star Sport.



We also had a look around the resort:






After we had said hello to Herbie we headed over to Magic Kingdom.
Our travel agent had provided us with vouchers for the park tickets, and our hotel said we had to collect the tickets at a park. Fine, easy operation we'd thought. But when we was at the Magic Kingdom ticket booth, they could not find our ticket at all. We was at the ticket booth for 45 mins, while Disney tried to help us, and they did also tried to call the emergency phone number at the voucher for out travel agents sub-contractor. It turned out that the sub-contractor had done some mistake, so the ticket booth gave us complimentary day passes, and two priority passes to our attractions of choice. And we also got the message that we had to contact our resort to get new room keys with park passes on. When we was at our resort in the afternoon, they hadn't heard anything about it, but they also called the emergency number, and the next morning when we got at front desk, everything was sorted and we did get new room keys with park tickets,


But back to day two. The first thing we did was to take a complete trip at Walt Disney World Railroad.









When we got of at Main Street we bumped in to the trolley show.









We also spotted this ones:



Among the attractions we visited that day was the Carousel of Progress, The Hall of Presidents and Haunted Mansion, plus some character photos.

















And when we had lunch at Casey's Corner this ones was very close.





At the evening we was at Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween party witch was enjoyable.

After we did deliver our rental car on day 9 we visited Epcot to redo some attractions.








And in the afternoon we hopped over to Magic Kingdom and watched the parade and did a few attractions.




















In the evening we did pack our suite cases before we the next day hopped on the Magical Express back to the airport and went home.


Overall we had a nice holiday, both at Disney World and also in Atlanta and New York.

We also did some shopping several places at Disney World, and two times we did ship the stuff we bought at a store home to our home address in Norway, witch was very practical.

The weather was mostly sunny and around 25 to 30 degrees Celsius.

Regarding the crowds, I felt it wasn't very crowded. Don't remember the wait times, but it wasn't too bad.
