Now this is tough. It’s a tie between three: the Grand Floridian, Coronado Springs & the Polynesian Resort.
Both resorts are gorgeous... The beds at Coronado Springs are like sleeping on a cloud, sadly the Poly isn’t as comfortable, but the room at the Poly has more of a theme to it.
Both resorts have amazing pools, but what makes the Poly beat Coronado is the fact that my favorite place to eat in the world (‘Ohana) is there.
I LOVE ‘Ohanas and I love the ambiance of the Poly. The waterfalls inside and outside of the resort are beautiful and relaxing and the beach is so amazing. You can see the castle from across the water as well as the beautiful Grand Floridian Resort and the Modern Contemporary Resort & Bay Lake Tower. My favorite part is that you can watch the fireworks & hear the music of the fireworks show from the beach. It’s truly magical!
Lastly, I worked there for a week so I know the ins and outs of the resort more than I do of Coronado, plus all of my memories at the Poly are positive ones and I will leave that at that haha =)
Sooooo Polynesian I ♥ You!!!

Short & Sweet Answer: Africa!
Kilimanjaro Safari & Kali River Rapids are pretty fun, and the plant lady is there too! Overall, the atmosphere of that area is great! I truly feel like I’m in Africa, well if I knew what being in Africa was like that is haha =)

Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster … DUH!!!!!!
I worked there for 4 months & didn’t get sick of it! Now that is magic! Haha I’m positive that I have been on that ride at LEAST 100 times during my time there. I rode it once or twice every day that I worked and then on my days off I usually went to Studios and rode Coaster hmmm… somewhere between 3-6 times because people would let me re-ride. Yea, that was pretty sweet.
Also, I made some of the most amazing friends ever while working here. I met my wifey, my "fiancé", my crazy day 1 trainer who taught me nothing the first day =P (Tim) lol, some of my best friends. I Love & Miss my friends & that life so much! Hopefully I’ll have as much fun on my fall disney college program as I did on my first!

Sunset Boulevard!!!!!!! It is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!!!! ♥♥♥
This place is my home. I’m pretty sure I said this earlier, but I thoroughly enjoyed the nights that I would work at Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster & all of the guests were gone, but the lights were on and the big band music was blasting in the air. I felt like I was in the 40’s at an abandoned, but well kept area. I still love it to this day and will until I die. It seriously has the most amazing ambiance at night. It also has the best rides in the park & an amazing night show Fantasmic! ♥

My favorite attraction in the World Showcase is of course Maelstrom in Norway. There are only 2 rides to pick from, the mini boat ride in Mexico and the Maelstrom, a more log flumey ride. Of course I’ll pick the Maelstrom!
It's not only a wonderful memory of when I was a child riding the ride and being excited to see the trolls, it also makes me think of my roommate from my Summer Alumni in 2010. The Maelstrom was most definitely her favorite ride, but Norway looks pretty so why not enjoy the ride while visiting that country in EPCOT right?? ;)
Anyways, you have my answer & my photo. Enjoy. ♥

I’m coming home
Tell the World I’m coming home
Let the rain wash away all the pain of yesterday
I know my kingdom awaits and they’ve forgiven my mistakes
I’m coming home, I’m coming home
Tell the World that I’m coming
Back where I belong, yeah I never felt so strong
(I’m back baby)
I feel like there’s nothing that I can’t try
And if you with me put your hands high
(put your hands high)
If you ever lost a light before, this ones for you
And you, the dreams are for you"
World Showcase. No doubt in my mind. EPCOT is one of my least favorite parks (tied with Animal Kingdom), but I absolutely LOVE the World Showcase.
I have always been fascinated with other cultures, I love food, and I loooovvvveee accents, so it’s just natural for me to love World Showcase. It's fun to say that I've been to 11 countries in just one day hehehe
My favorite time to be there is at sunset with a delicious drink in hand. Oh! And having the option to drink around the world at Disney definitely a plus! =)

Pirates of the Caribbean is a classic, but it’s really quite boring. I love it because of my childhood memories & such, but I think the Jungle Cruise (another classic) will have to be my favorite in Adventureland.
I’ve only been on it a few times, but I enjoy the cheesy jokes that are used over & over again that still crack me up. Even with the same jokes, EVERY cruise is different, which makes it fun. Plus, I know a couple skippers so it makes it a little more special. These reasons are why I’m picking the Jungle Cruise.

SPLASH MOUNTAIN!! This is tied with Mickey’s Philarmagic as my favorite in the park in general because they are so different. I LOVE Splash Mountain because it has the thrill & happy-go-lucky Disney atmosphere in one. I love the feeling in my stomach every time we go down those hills. You’ll find me with my arms up for each drop, big or small haha.
“Everybody’s got a laughing place…” Heck yes we do & mine is definitely at Splash Mountain.

This is a no brainer… HAUNTED MANSION! As a kid I thought this attraction was super annoying cause it wasn’t scary or interesting to me at all, but at the point in my life I wanted to rebel against anything my dad liked and this is his favorite ride sooo…. LOL
I definitely adore this attraction though! It’s cheesy, but it’s a classic & I love it! I love the huge dining room area & seeing the hidden Mickey on the table, the hitchhiking ghosts, & of course seeing Walt Disney as the face on the broken statute singing in the graveyard. Those things make me smile, but the attic with the bride scares the crap out of me. It’s spooky & every time when I’m on the ride & stops, it always seems to stop right next to her hahaha.
“Now don't close your eyes, And don't try to hide. Or a silly spook may sit by your side. Shrouded in a daft disguise, They pretend to terrorize. Grim grinning ghosts come out to socialize.”

Hands Down MICKEY’S PHILHARMAGIC!!!!!!!
This is my favorite attraction in the whole park (tied with Splash Mountain). I tear up basically every time I’m at this attraction. The sights, sounds, & smells remind me so much of my childhood more than anything else. It is truly magical! ♥

I would most definitely have to say Hollywood Studios. When I was a kid I was so hardcore about the “movie star” life. Whenever I would walk through the entrance of MGM studios (that’s what it was at the time) I would smile SO BIG no matter where I was in the park because it was "my park".
Now that I’m older & actually worked at Hollywood Studios, I have an even more special place for this park in my heart. The atmosphere of this park is something I absolutely love. It was especially amazing at night when you just get off work and you're walking down Sunset Boulevard with no one in the park, the big band music is playing loudly on the speakers and the buildings are still lit from when the guests were in the park... The warm evening just tops it all off... ::sigh:: that was the life. So yes, Hollywood Studios is my favorite park for many, many reasons.
