The Magical Orlando Tag!

I saw this tag over on Ellie’s blog (elliesramblings) and I was all over it. If there is anything blogwise that is Disney, Florida, Universal, SeaWorld etc. then I am sold so when I saw the magical Orlando tag I wanted to do it right away. Orlando is my favourite place in the whole wide world and am currently waiting what seems like forever for my trip back there in June! Fingers crossed time hurries its little butt up…

Which Hogwarts house would you be sorted into?
I’d like to think it would be Gryffindor house, probably what most people would say haha. I guess Gryffindor is the obvious choice, but Harry, Ron and Hermione just get into the most trouble, but the most fun at the same time.

Name a Disney character you’d like to have dinner with.
One?! Just one?! Surely it’s impossible to choose just one… I’d like to have dinner with Ariel because hs eis my favourite princess, Belle because she is my second favourite and I just love her and also Mickey and Minnie as that’s where Disney all started!

Which Marvel superhero power would you choose?
I’m not really a Marvel film kind of person to be really honest. I’ve only ever seen the Spiderman movies and as much as I did enjoy them, I haven’t really had the interest to watch any of the others. So I’m going to have to say Spiderman’s powers – I suppose flying around on strings of web would be fun, right?

 If you could bring back one dinosaur breed from Jurassic Park, which would it be?
Again, I’m not really a fan of Jurassic Park either and I definitely wouldn’t want to bring back any dinosaurs haha. If google has done me rightly then I’d say the Compsognathus – the smallest dinosaur which is apparently the size of a chicken and only hunts small lizards and insects… ew.

You can ride a dragon at the Triwizard Tournament and visit the owlery at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, but where else would you go on a school trip to Hogsmeade?
Definitely Honeydukes and The Three Broomsticks. I have a sweet tooth so would love to go into Honeydukes although I’d avoid the Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans! And I’d have to go into The Three Broomsticks for a butterbeer. I have had the butterbeer at the studio tour in London and I wasn’t that keen on it, but I hear in Florida it tastes much better – I want to try the frozen one!

A scene in any Disney, Harry Potter or Marvel movie you wish you could experience.
Disney movie: either the part of your world scene in The Little Mermaid so I could go into Ariel’s little cave and see her collection or the tale as old as time scene in Beauty and the Beast because let’s face it – it’s pretty perfect. Harry Potter: I’d love to give Quidditch a go!

Name one item from any Disney, Harry Potter or Marvel movie you would want for Christmas.
Disney movie: Ariel’s clam shell bra would be awesome, it’s so cute! Harry Potter: I’d love Hermione’s time turner. Being in two places at once would be amazing.

Name one unforgettable experience/moment you’ve had at the Orlando parks.
100% without a doubt has to be when you first step foot into Magic Kingdom and make your way down Main Street and see the castle in the distance. It is a very overwhelming moment for a Disney lover and one that you won’t forget. It is obviously so special the first ever time you do, but every single time after when you revisit, even years after your first visit, the magic is still there and it’s definitely a very surreal moment!

I hope you enjoyed this tag about Orlando and Disney and Universal. I love doing tags like this and loved this one with a mixture of the parks in it! Counting down the days to my return to magical Orlando… 152 days!!!

Welcome 2015!

Hello 2015!

Now I don't know about anyone else but for me 2014 seemed to fly by. I literally seemed to have blinked and now 2015 is here! Without sounding too depressing (lighten up Em) 2014 wasn't my best year - not because of anything particularly bad happening, but nothing particularly good did either. 

I don't feel as though in 2014 I really lived my life, I feel as though I just sort of existed haha. There were a couple of good events in 2014 such as booking my holiday to Florida for June this year (WAHOOOOOOO!!!) and my 21st birthday. I'm going to Orlando, Florida with my best friend to spend two weeks doing all things Disney, Universal and to swim with dolphins. To know that it is only 5 months away now is far too exciting!! My 21st was definitely a birthday to remember. I had a brilliant night with my friends and my brother - the day after proved so with a day of not moving from the sofa haha!

I'm so excited for 2015 to finally be here as I have so much to look forward too! In April, I am going to see The Vamps in concert (Bradley Simpson, I love you), in May I finish university forever :O, in June I go to Florida for 2 weeks and July is my graduation! I'm also thinking of taking another trip to London with my nan and hopefully get tickets to go and see One Direction towards the end of the year as I was very sad to miss out on them the morning they were released :( 

I'm also not one to ever stick to new year's resolutions, so I'm just gonna call these 'aims' and hope for the best.
I want to do more with my blog this year and also become more confident in myself (definitely hope for the best here Em haha).

But anyway, I hope you all have a fabulous 2015 and it brings everything that you want!
Here's to a happy 2015!

Love Em x
