Vintage Disney World – Part II

One of the best rides at Hollywood Studios for the vintage lover is The Great Film Ride. It takes you through famous movie scenes throughout the years, from Gene Kelly in “Singin’ in the Rain” to “The Wizard of Oz” and beyond. While you are waiting for your turn, you get to view great old movie trailers, and there is a wonderful clip montage at the end of the ride.

At Epcot, my favourite part absolutely has to be the World Showcase, hands down. I went nuts buying stuff in “Great Britain”, being both an Anglophile and part Brit myself. I got a Union Jack iPhone case, “Keep Calm” shirt, Union Jack flag, and a London 2012 Olympics pin.

We decided to eat in “France” at the aptly named “Chefs de France”. Our waiter was from Paris and was just plain awesome, and he was so excited upon hearing that we were from NYC! We left him a 33% tip 🙂

We also visited Germany, where we had the absolute best caramel apple ever. Very filling! Then we strolled past Italy.

We also stopped into Magic Kingdom, where although most things were not my type, there was the Hall of Presidents that sucked me in. When FDR came on the screen, I squealed in delight, as we are related. Barack Obama was also included, and he also did a recording of his actual voice to lend to this show.

After we returned from our journeys each night, we would spend time on the balcony to watch the fireworks and then retire for some slumber. I shall leave you with the fireworks I managed to get a picture of.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Really seldom do I run into a site that’s both educative and enjoyable, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is splendid ; the issue is something that not enough people are talking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this.
