🧨🧧Chinese New Year @ Orlando | 在奥兰多过年

This year, Chinese New Year is only a week after the MLK holiday. To take advantage of that, we planned a trip to the Disney World and Universal Studio.

We’ve been to the Universal Studio in Hollywood. Daisy has also been to the Disneyland in Shanghai for several time, but for me it’s the first time.


Day 0: Red-eye Flight | 红眼航班 🛫

To save about $1000, we booked a red-eye flight that departs SEA at 9pm and arrives MCO at 6am.

We checked weather forecast before our trip, and we expected it to be colder than “usual Florida temperature”, but we didn’t expect that it’s as cold as Seattle.

Day 1: Disney Springs

Being sleepless, we didn’t plan for any theme park on the day of arrival. Instead, we went straight to the Disney Springs – to shop for winter wear. But even before that, we had our first meal at Rainforest Cafe.

到达的第一天,我们并没有计划去主题公园,而是去了Disney Springs购物中心——为了买几件厚衣服,包括羽绒服、冲锋衣。不过在那之前,我们先得填饱肚子,在Rainforest Cafe吃了第一顿午餐。

Day 2: EPCOT

EPCOT is the first Disney theme park in our trip. Our first ride was Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. It was a thrill ride, and we haven’t even had breakfast before the ride, which made it even worse. I felt a bit like being “tortured”, but Daisy was brave enough to ride it again.


After that, we took a few slower and more chill rides, such as:



We observed the Harmonious firework show to end the day.


Day 3: Magic Kingdom

And of course, we can’t miss the firework show.


Day 4: Hollywood Studio, and EPCOT again

In Hollywood Studio, we spent half day. The most impressive ride we had was the Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, located in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

In the afternoon, we took the Skyliner to revisit EPCOT, where we met characters on our way to Garden Grill Restaurant.

Day 5: Animal Kingdom

We took Avatar-themed rides in Pandora – The World of Avatar——

We also watched Festival of the Lion King show –

After the show, we hopped on Kilimanjaro Safaris

Day 6 & Day 7: Universal Studios Florida + Universal’s Islands of Adventure | 环球影城 + 冒险岛

After concluding our visits to Disney World, we moved forward to Universal.

Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ | 哈利波特魔法世界

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ is the most anticipated part of our trip.

The entrance is barely noticeable.


Once entering, it’s a whole new world.

After riding Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts, we took the Hogwarts Express from King’s Cross Station to Hogsmeade.

Interestingly, there are roller coasters the weaves around the architectures –
