Talking The BIG Picture Report 3/1-3/17 '07

Now it's my turn to do a trip report.
English is not my first language, so there is not going to be a lot of talking, but instead a lot of pictures. I'm going to say a little bit about each pic and that it.
To make it a little bit different i'm going to do places instead of days, well, it will explain itself later.

First a little in introduktion while I get all the pics on the DIS site.

Who:
Me: 24 years old, study theatre in Copenhagen, have always liked Disney, my favorite movie is Aristocats and i'm a big Marie-fan, but I do like the characters from Winnie The Pooh too. The first time I went to DLP,I didn't even wanted to go there, instead I wanted to see Monet's garden, but one day in DLP changed it all.

Mum: 50 years old, working in the framing business, Always liked the Disney movies, but got hooked on Disney themeparks after we celebrated christmas in DLP, favourite character is Tinkerbell, beside that she loves the Disney music.

Where:
We stayed at the Comfort Inn Universal Areas. Non of us have been to the States before, so we wanted to see other things then Disney as well.

When:
1-17 of March

That's what we look like.

Next time: Magic Kingdom, 3/1 (My B-day) and 3/15 (Spring break hell)

Wow, it is hard to believe that English is not your first language. Your writing is great and better than many of the posts from those of us for whom English IS our first language!

I'm looking forward to reading your report and seeing your pics!

Wink Magic Kingdom 3/3 & 3/12

We went to MK twice. The first time was on my The weather was awfull. It was cold and cloudy. We didn't think that it would be that cold, so we had the summer outfit on. That was stupid, so the first thing we did was to run into the first shop on main street to buy a sweater. And then we saw that we were not the only ones. The shop was full of people and no sweaters. After we finally found a couple of decent looking sweaters, we were ready for the magic.
The next time was one of the last days of our trip. The weather was great and very very hot. When we first arrived the park was almost emty so we did some rides with no lines at all... Perfect. But then hell began (almost anyway) First day of spring break and every one went to MK. I don't mind a crowded park at all , but people got a bit aggressive because of the heat and some of the groups of students (I'm a student myself and know how careless we can be) didn't respect the people around them and that made me a bit angry... But I got some beautiful pics that day...

Me with a b-day pin and the princess mickyears. I'm not called The Princess for nothing


Year of a million and a very cloudy sky


I love these dressed up bushes (have no idea what the english word for them is )


Rides
The danish contribution to "it's a small world", God I hate that song


Yeahhhh Jack is back


Dinner at Crystal Palace... I'll spare you the pics of the characters and just put this one on to put you in the Crystal Palace mood


No b-day without a and a signed card. Btw, I think that every single b-day person celebrated it in Crystal Palace, there was a lot of cakes


Ater dinner it's time for shopping. Have anyone had a close look at this castle? (yes i know it's a lot of small castles put together) It's very cool...


I want this!!! It's too cute!!! But i'm not sure that the people in the airport would agree with me.


A few pics from the park... Then you guys can see if you can find your family.



Magic Kingdom continues.....

Smile Magic Kingdom 3/3 & 3/12 part 2


Magic Kingdom part 2
The traditional castle pictures






Hallo Tigger


And HALLOOO Johnny... ups, I mean Jack This guy is gooooddd


These small statues in front of the castle are so cute as well... have a look





Before we left Denmark, my mum said that she would never ever wear a micky rain poncho. This is what a woman, that didn't want to wear a poncho, but had to because the rain was pouring down, looks like.


We tried to get a table at Tony's, but we had to wait for more then an hour, so this is what we did in the waiting time. We had had enough of all the people in the park (spring break hell remember)


And watched the parade from Tony's waiting room, a very good wiew...


This was the Magic Kingdom days... Feel free to ask questions

Next time: Epcot, a trip around the world and fantastic food.

Love your TR and the pictures!! I love to hear what foreigners think of Walt Disney World. I want to go to Disneyland Paris badly but it's so expensive for Americans these days - the dollar is terrible against the Euro.

Thanks for posting and I can't wait to hear more!

Yeah France is so expensive. And DLP is even worse. But it's still worth it
I found WDW a lot cheaper then I first thought. Maybe because our bus driver and the people at the hotel kept joking about the high prices, so I was expecting a lot worse... but that was a good supprise

Epcot 3/4 & 3/16 -07

After a buzy week i'm finally back with more pics. Now it's time for a trip around the world at Epcot. We both loved Epcot. It's speciel cause it's not like the other parks but you still get the disney magic. One thing I found a bit wierd was that they have Danish stuff in Germany and Norway But we still loved it.
Well, enough talking

Let's begin with the beginning




We both loved the Spaceship Earth ride, it's an easy ride but there is so much to look at.


We were so excited about the World Showcase that we ran through Future World but I had to have a pic of this waterfall


They had started the preparation for the flower festival. It already looked so good then, I would love to see it now


Here I was waiting for a train to come past so I could take a pic of it (like everyone else does ) So we waited and waited... and waited... and waited... no train


Finally we ended up in World Showcase.

First up is Mexico. Have anyone been to the resturant in there??? It's so good, the food is cheap and very delicious. It's probably the best resturant in WDW (well, that's our opinion)


Uhh who is that?!?


Next up is Norway, we almost felt like home (Norway was once Danish property)


The big troll... the one on the right is the troll, the other one is my mum


More coming up...

Epcot continued

There is not that much to say to the next couple of pics. It's my favourite buildings around Epcot
















Now it's time to look at me




We found this in Italy... Since when did Santa visit Baby Jesus???


Le France...


This guy is amazing


What's better then meeting your favourite character for the first time (yes it's an awfull pic, but it's Marie and that's what counts)


England... the place to find Pooh and his friends too...


Hallo there...


Another amazing structure


The best way to end the day is by watching the Illuminations firework. That's one of the best fireworks/light shows I've ever seen. Only Disney can do this. As you all know it's impossible to take pics of fireworks... This is what happens when you try


This is the end of Epcot (for this TP anyway) We loved the place even though I'm pretty sure that the countries doesn't look like this in real life. But it's the magic that counts

Next time: MGM Studios (mum mum I just saw a CM handing out micky ears)

Let me confess something before I go on--I havent read your trip report but I just went through all the pictures. I love them. How cute you are with your mom. I hate reading reports and they put in only a couple of pictures, so I scan them first to see if it is up to my expectations. I know, Im sad.

Loving your pictures and I promise now to go back and read.

Thanks for sharing

I agree with you... I like TP with a lot of pics and not that much text, that's why I have tried to make my TP like that... Thanks for looking
