  • I can’t find the words to describe this place. It makes me so happy being there. Even if you’re feeling down it can make you feel amazing. Everyone is so nice the rides are amazing, they have things for all ages. To be honest it’s my favorite place ever! The vibe is just so amazing and welcoming. It never disappoints.
  • When they say Disney is the happiest place on earth, they aren’t wrong. My girlfriend and I went here for the first time together and to say it was truly magical is an understatement. We’re always eager to go again because of how amazing it is. No where on earth like it! I could write a 10+ page essay going on about how wonderful this place is. Pros: Magical Experience, polite staff, great for all ages, food is tasty, clean bathrooms, lots of memories to be made, and MANY more amazing things to look forward to. Cons: Pricing and long lines. Overall, truly a remarkable place to be with your loved ones; Walt Disney World is there to make you feel like a kid again.
