The other two parts:
Memory Monday XI: "Disney Day I: Arrival, Downtown Disney, and Typhoon Lagoon"
Memory Monday XII: "Disney Day II: My 18th Birthday, Epcot, and Animal Kingdom
We woke up bright and early on Saturday the 2nd of May, and we got ready to go to the Magic Kingdom. We got onto our group buses, and then drove a small way to the parking lot for the Magic Kingdom. We got onto the first ferry over the river to the place, and then we went through the park gates and we were then in.
I called my parents on FaceTime for them to see where I was, and for me to wish my sister, Kellie, good luck at the start of her tournament that weekend. After I hung up with them, I walked down Main Street with Kevin, Eric, and his girlfriend Laura, and then we got on the monorail, to go have some breakfast at Contemporary, the large building there.
After that, we went back into the Magic Kingdom, went shopping a bit near Splash Mountain, saw the hall of Presidents, and then we went across to go into Tomorrowland, and we went on the monorail that goes around that area. We got of of that and then we went on Space Mountain. In all of these rides over those two days, I always sat with Kevin, and Eric always sat with his girlfriend, which I wasn't mad with.
When we got out, we saw a group of our friends all gathered around near the starting point of the monorail that goes around Tomorrowland. When we went over to see what they were doing, we met a funny guy who used to go to Kellenberg, who moved down to Florida, whose name was Nick. After that, we went to the Monsters Inc. Laugh Factory, and saw that show. That was very cute, as I remembered my childhood, and had lots of feels there!
After we left there, me and Kevin sat outside the crap ass ride, It's A Small World, as Eric and Laura went on it, because it is a 'couples' thing, and we made fun of some of the classmates that walked by. After that Kevin wanted to go do his own things, and so did I, so I started walking around. I met up with some of my other friends, Brandon, Paul, Jimmy, James, and John.
We had some lunch together, and then we all went on Splash Mountain. I didn't set up my fast pass, so when we all went on, I just snuck onto the line with my friends, and got on the ride. I sat with my good friend Paul, and had so much fun, making fun of Bartolo Colon, and making fun of the ride as a whole.
After that, I left them, and walked towards the Philharmagic show, which I am very happy that I went and saw. What it basically showed, was Donald Duck, taking the Sorcerers Cap from Mickey Mouse, and accidentally using the magic associated with it, and going through the world of Disney movies. It showed movies like The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, The Lion King, and Beauty and the Beast.
It was in 3D, in that it covered the front of you, the sides of you, and a bit of the ceiling. What was so cool was the 'magic box' on the back of every seat, so it was in front of you. What it did was like when Lumiere in Beauty and the Beast shows you an apple pie, you smelled the apple pie, and when you were singing "A Whole New World" with Aladdin and Jasmine on the magic carpet, you had wind blowing in your face.
After that, we left the Magic Kingdom, went back to the hotel, and did two things. We started to pack for tomorrows departure, and got dressed up nice and ready for mass, dinner, pictures, and Hollywood Studios that night.
We got on the buses and went outside of a pretty nice hotel, across the street from Hollywood Studios. There was a large plaza that was never used, and we had our mass and dinner set up there. We said our mass, and we sang 'I Can Only Imagine' there, which I highlighted in Seasonal Saturday IX. We had dinner, and then afterwards took some photos with each other. I took a photo with my homeroom, and then took a photo with my high school crush, Gabby.
After that we all went to Hollywood Studios, and the first thing we did was watch the show Fantasmic. It was really cool, as you had the villains of Disney, fighting against the heroes and princess of Disney. It was really cool, and also before the show began, we did the Islanders "Yes, Yes, Yes" chant, which got me a little choked up, because the last time I did that, was in the playoffs at Game 6 at the Coliseum.
After that, me, Kevin, Eric, and Laura all went on the Aerosmith ride, the Rock N' Roller Coaster. I was told it was not that bad by Kevin. They lied... big time. The ride gives you a countdown, and right before the countdown ends, you blast off at sixty miles an hour, into a loop. It is all dark and black lighted. It was the second most fun ride I went on, in that trip, as the first was Expedition Everest. I went on that ride, about five times more in a row there. Then I met up with Gabby again, and she was nervous about going on the ride. I then rode it with her, (you're damn right I did, and wait... the stupidity is only going to get worse!)
After that, I wasn't feeling that awesome in the stomach, but she was so pumped up, that she then wanted to go on the Hollywood Tower of Terror. I already told my other friends five times, that I was not going on that ride. Well, what am I going to say to this extremely beautiful girl, that I really liked, who asked me to go on this ride. You're right, I said sure, why not. I went on the ride not once, but twice. (I know, I know what you are thinking, but are you telling me that you would not do the same thing!)
After that adventure, we walked down the fake 50's modeled street, and just talked as friends. We talked about the end of high school, the beginning of college, what we wanted to do, and the way we both were treated in high school. We then went on the Toy Story Mania ride, and after that walked back, and sat down back near the Rock n' Roller Coaster. One of my friends had a radio app on his phone, so we were hearing the middle and end of the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight. Shortly after 12:45 at night, we got back on the buses, exhausted, and went back to the hotel. We went to sleep almost immediately, and then left a few hours later.
This was such a great trip, and I hope that the seniors of Kellenberg that are going down next week, have as much fun as I did on those three days. I will put some more photos down below! I hope that you enjoyed reading all about this great trip!
