Day 1 we went to the newer of the 4 parks, The Animal Kingdom. It's a bit different than I thought it would be, less of a zoo than attractions themed around animals IMO, but it was fun. If you go to The Animal Kingdom, make sure you check out the Kilimanjaro Safari in Africa which is a ride in a bus/jeep that gets you really close to a lot of free roaming animals. There's also a lot of self-guided walking tours through nature trails with lots of animals to see along the way.
My favorite ride in the park, though, was in DinoLand U.S.A. and was DINOSAUR. Using a lot of the same ride technology as the Indiana Jones ride in Disneyland, this ride takes you through the end of the cretaceous period in search of a dinosaur to bring back for study. It's really bumpy, but a lot of fun.
Also in the park are of course a lot of shows to see. It's tough to be a bug is a 3d movie/sensory experience (smells, devices in the seats) that introduce you to a lot of bugs found in A Bug's Life.
Later that night, we went to The Magic Kingdom for about 4 hours, since The Animal Kingdom closes pretty early (their attractions go to sleep [wink]). This is, by far, my favorite Disney park. I love all of the old classics such as The Haunted Mansion, Pirates of The Carribean, Hall of Presidents, and more, as well as some of the new attractions, like Mickey's PhilharMagic 3d show.
Next day we took in EPCOT and 4 more hours of The Magic Kingdom that we missed the previous day. While at EPCOT I got a good book from one of the gift shops, and I think that it is relevant enough to game development that people here might be interested in it.
The book is The Imagineering Way: Ideas to Ignite Your Creativity and is a collection of essays from the Imagineers on what they think creativity is, and some good advice on how to unlock more of it, the main one being don't be afraid of failure. If you want to do something, do it, no matter if it's the right or wrong way. It's short, and I finished it on the trip home, but I think it's well worth a read to anyone in a remotely creative profession. Hopefully i'll be able to apply the advice to my work and everyday life.
