Wrestlemania Trip in Orlando

In late March to mid April Jack, Nick, Jason, Nicole and myself headed to Orlando, Florida for a holiday with a difference.

Wrestling was the main item on the agenda for the trip. We attended WWE Axxess where everyone was very excited to watch some NXT matches up close. We also got to meet some famous wrestlers including: Kane, Jimmy Hart, Nikolai Kolof, Gene Okerlund, Heath Slater, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Jinder Mahal, Ted DiBiase, Howard Finkle, Sami Zayn, Cesaro, Mark Henry, Curits Axel, Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler, Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson, Ivory, Jacqueline and Mick Foley – names right at the top of the wrestling tree.

We were also amongst  the 75,244 people who attended ‘Wrestlemania 33’ at Camping World Stadium, in Orlando – a long, but memorable day. Nick’s highlight was seeing Undertaker’s final match, Jack loved watching AJ Styles and Jason enjoyed the 8-man ladder match.

We also went to Amway Arena on the Tuesday night to watch ‘Smackdown! Live’.

It wasn’t all just wrestling though, we also had an absolutely amazing time visiting the Disney theme parks including Animal Kingdom, Blizzard Beach, Hollywood Studios, Quest and two days at Disney’s Magic Kingdom.

The most popular rides were Aerosmith: Rock N Rolla Coaster; Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, and the huge slides at the Blizzard Beach Water Park. The Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular and the fireworks at Magic Kingdom were also particular highlights.

Somehow, in between all of these amazing events, we managed to squeeze in a trip to the Medieval Times Restaurant for some jousting and eating with our hands, lots of shopping and dining out, a visit to a car show (where there were some more incredible and scary rides, that only Nick, Jack and Jason were brave enough to go on!), and a day trip down to Kennedy Space Centre to see the launch pads where all Apollo missions were launched,  one of the space shuttles and also the control room. All really interesting.

Overall, everyone had an amazing time as I’m sure you can see from the photos!
