My Ranking Of The Parks In Orlando's Walt Disney World

My Ranking Of The Parks In Orlando's Walt Disney World

It's The Most Magical Place In The World!

As a child, I spent my spring breaks in Disney world because my parents were and still are DVC members. Because I have been to Disney a lot, I have definitely developed an opinion on which of the four theme parks is my favorite. Here is my ranking, with four being my least favorite and one being my favorite:

4. Animal Kingdom

Don't get me wrong, I love animals just as much as the next person. But there really isn't much to do at this park. There are a few rides and shows here and there, but most of the park consists of walking around in the sweltering heat and looking at the exotic animals. The park recently added a new section based off of the Avatar movies, so when I go back in May I'll see how that area is.

3. Magic Kingdom

I was hesitant to have this park at #3 at first because it has a lot of great rides and really good restaurants, but the crowds are always insane here. Besides the crowds, however, this park is great: there really is something for everyone here.

2. Hollywood Studios

This park used to be my favorite park. Keyword: used. When they got rid of the iconic sorcerer's hat in the middle of the park, I was honestly disheartened. The last time I was there, not much was open because of construction and all of the rides and shops that were open had large lines for them, even with a Fastpass (and I wasn't there during a popular season either). It makes me sad to write this because Hollywood Studios used to be great.

1. Epcot

Epcot never fails to please. The rides are interesting, the restaurants are great, and it's very easy to spend an entire day here. The overall atmosphere is wonderful here as well. If you're into cultures or anything science related, this park is definitely one that you should go to.

Overall, Disney is a place like no other. Although the crowds can be annoying, you definitely get your money's worth when you go, even if it's just for a day. Disney has something for everyone, and that's the really cool part about it.

Poetry On Odyssey: Self Love

“Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.” – Lucille Ball

Self-love is the best kind of love

for you are yours

before anyone else

Nourish your mind

and feed your soul

thrive off the energy

the universe has to offer.

Always remember the

purpose and importance

you have in this world

and all the beautiful things

you have to offer.

Why I Love Scary Movies

Everyone has a favorite movie genre, mine just happens to be the scary ones.

Movies are some of the greatest pieces of art in our modern day and age.

They can evoke all kinds of emotions, come in a ridiculous number of genres, and are just a damn good time. For me, no movies will ever match the experience of watching good horror movies. Sure, there are a ton of movies that I like watching more than horror movies. I would never go so far as to say that a horror movie was in my top 5, top ten, even top 20 movies of all time..but let me tell ya, something about the atmosphere and experience when watching horror movies just hits the spot with me.

The best way to watch a horror movie, as we all should know, is in a theater. The atmosphere is unmatched by any at-home viewing experience. The knowledge that you and many others are all sitting in the dark, waiting with baited breath for the next scare is electrifying.The size of the screen and the way-too-high volume mixed with the sound of people around you screaming at every jump scare is just incredible. But, for me, it goes beyond just that.

A lot of what makes scary movies so much fun for me is that incredible, heart-pounding, fight-or-flight adrenaline rush that I get almost every time I watch one. Don't get me wrong, I get scared very easily. I jump and hold my breath and hide just like everyone else, but something about that terror-high just makes it all worthwhile. Maybe I'm just an adrenaline junkie, but nothing gets the heart pumping quite like a nice little bit of fear. Hell, I'm terrified of clowns and I went to see Stephen King's IT by myself! I thought that maybe it'd help cure my fear of clowns, but no, its still just as bad as its ever been.

Watching scary movies with your significant other is also always a bonus. One of the best ways to score brownie points with them is to hold on to them while they're scared and put up with their antics after the movie as well. And don't be afraid to show a little fear around them too. Acting like a big bad tough guy is overrated, they'll appreciate it way more if you show a little humanity and emotion and get spooked just like everyone else.

Horror Movies for the win.
