Where I stayed
Next I went on to Wonderworks. It's a cool place but would have been a lot more fun with someone else. They have tons of interactive exhibits and games and stuff. I got to feel an earthquake (since I was living near San Francisco during the 1989 earthquake I've already felt one) and stand in a hurricane. I definitely haven't been in a hurricane and hopefully I won't. It wasn't so bad but I had poles to hang on to and the lack of debri flying around was very nice and also unrealistic. Had it been a real hurricane I definitely would have gotten knocked out by a tree branch. I also laid on a bed of nails. The guy said that as long as I didn't move I wouldn't feel them but I definitely felt them! After about ten seconds I was done with the bed of nails. Ouch!
I drove around for a bit and finally found Disney World. I was hoping to take some pictures but it's way harder than I thought. First of all it's really spread out and each kingdom has it's own parking lot. The lady let me in the parking lot free when I told her I just needed to turn around and get out of there. I really didn't feel like parking and riding around the tram just to take pictures. So pictures of Disney World will have to wait until I have kids
So tomorrow is my day trip to Tampa and Clearwater. I really like Orlando and there's tons to do, but it all costs a lot of money so if you're broke you will get bored (and I'm always a tad broke since I travel way too much). Plus I haven't seen a beach yet and I've heard Florida's west coast is amazing. I'm definitely looking forward to heading over there. I'll be back in Orlando tomorrow night (maybe I will go check out downtown Orlando since all the touristy stuff where I am staying isn't close to downtown at all and downtowns usually have some stuff to do) and then Saturday it's off to Miami.
