Orlando recap

Back from Orlando, Florida, and it was amazing!! We flew in Friday night and went straight to Downtown Disney for dinner and Cirque Du Soleil, La Nouba! It was my first time seeing Cirque Du Soleil, and it was great! It was really entertaining. The performers were really talented! Then we played Fantasia mini golf and called it a night. 
Found: DisZine
Saturday we went to Disney's Hollywood Studios in the morning. We went on the Toy Story Ride, the Backlot tour, and the famous Tower of Terror.
  Then we headed over to Epcot for the afternoon/night. We walked around the World Showcase, visiting and enjoying a beverage in each country. We also rode Mission Space, and the Test Track which were fun. We also saw the fireworks show that night, which was great.
Sunday we got up so we could get to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter right when it opened (which i HIGHLY recommend.) It was really crowded, but SO magical and amazing!! It was everything I hoped for and more! The ride in the Hogwarts castle was really well done. And walking through the halls was really exciting. The pictures actually moved! 
And the butterbeer was delicious! It tasted like flat cream soda, with delicious butterscotch foam. And they had regular or frozen! (I had both of course). 
There were lines to get into Honeydukes (candy store) and Zonkos (joke shop),
 Ollivander's (wand shop),
 and Dervish and Bangs (clothes, other things). But it was really fun to see the magical world come to life. I loved it!! You HAVE to check it out if you are a Harry Potter fan!!
