My holiday in: Disneyland

Cara Woods (aged 11)

Where I went

I went to Disneyland in Florida with my mum, dad and cousin Cian (11). We flew to London, then to Orlando. Our flight was nine hours long, but we didn't mind as there were great movies to watch on the plane.

What I saw

I saw great shows like The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast and the Indiana Jones stunt show, which was brilliant. We saw the parade at night, and the fireworks were amazing. I saw a lot of Disney characters and got their autographs. My favourites were Pocahontas, Minnie Mouse and Jack Sparrow.

What I did

I went to the Four Parks: Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Epcot and Animal Kingdom, where we went on an open-air safari jeep. I tried white-water rafting and got soaked. We took a taxi to a big shopping centre in Orlando and my mum and I bought loads.

What I liked

I loved all the rides. My favourite was Expedition Everest, a high-speed train ride through the mountain. The scariest were The Tower of Terror and the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster. At night, we got to swim in the hotel's swimming pools until 11pm, and I made lots of new friends.

What I ate

I liked the pizza and hamburgers, and I loved the Mickey Mouse ice-creams.

What I didn't like

I didn't like my suitcase getting lost in London for two nights.

Where I'm going next

Edinburgh in Scotland.
