Where I stayed
Tropicana Inn and Suites
I went on the Tea cups and the Dumbo ride!!! I've waited so many years to be able to do those two rides!! Then we hit all the other rides. They are thrilling! Even the rides that just take you through the story are awesome. Peter Pan ride flies you over things!! Little Mermaid ride makes you feel like you're under water. Everything, every tiny little detail is magical!!!
What a place!!! It really is the happiest place on earth!! From the minute you walk in they have Disney music playing and you can't help but be happy. I told my sister that I wouldn't get excited by some dudes in character suits. But I did LOL. We all had photos with Mickey and Minnie and Goofy and Pluto and Donald and heaps more!! Every shop has cool shop assistants in old style aprons and costumes. They have REAL ice-cream and lollies. Everything is soooooo clean and neat. The ques for the rides have entertainment (in the form of animated characters telling you stories) so that a half hour wait seems like 5 minutes. Most rides are family friendly so all 5 of us can ride together even with the backpack. There are cleaners everywhere!! and just random workers standing around to help you. Everyone is smiling and Everyone is helpful. We got ourselves some "it's my first time" badges and have had random locals come up and tell us little tricks and secret things that happen and iphone apps that are helpful and one guy went and found us discount vouchers for other venues and hunted us down to give them to us. We have been blown away by how helpful the local people are. He was just some guy we met in the line for a ride.
