I used to say that I would never go to Florida. Sure they have Disney World and Universal Studios (which is bigger than the one we have here in California), but every time there’s a story on the news about a gruesome murder of something crazy happening, it’s usually in Florida. Also, Florida has hurricanes there. Lastly, Florida is a red state, so I thought I would be uncomfortable and out of place there because of my ethnicity. But I ended up changing my mind when my friend told me that Wrestlemania 33 was going to be in Florida. It sounded fun so I had to go. This was my last spring break of college and a little graduation present to myself. We had planned this trip since October 2016 and we couldn’t wait for April to get here.
We left on Thursday night from California, around 1030/11pm. We got to Florida on Friday morning, 6am their time. We checked in to our hotel and fell asleep. We had planned to see Charlotte and get out pictures taken with her, but unfortunately we got there too late. We went to eat at IHOP. Later on we went to the WWE Hall of Fame. It was weird seeing all the WWE Superstars all dressed up and with their wives or husbands and boyfriends or girlfriends. We saw Roman Reigns, Charlotte, Becky Lynch, Jericho, pretty much all the wrestlers. Our seats were pretty good. We sat near the entrance where they passed by.
Saturday was Wrestlemania Axxess. We went to two sessions and got to meet a few WWE Superstars and get pictures with them. The five people that I took pcs with were R-Truth, Mark Henry, Cedric Alexander, Curt Hawkins, and Baron Corbin. I didn’t get my favorite though, Roman Reigns, because it costs $190 to get his autograph since he was a premium vip. Maybe next year. There were so many people there! Lines were at least an hour or more each. I bought myself a Roman Reigns pin and an autographed Roman Reigns picture.
Sunday was Wrestlemania. In the morning, I went to the gym and ran 8 miles on the treadmill. I took about an hour and 35 minutes to finish. After the gym, we went to breakfast. Then back to the hotel to get ready. Although Wrestlemania started at 5pm Florida time, we had to be downstairs by the bus by 2pm. It was a good thing we left early because not only did it take us a while to get to the stadium. There was so many people there, more than 70,000, it took us over an hour to get inside the stadium. We sat on the field, not ringside, but close enough.
Monday was Universal Studios’ Islands of Adventures in the morning and Monday Night Raw at night. We chose Islands of Adventures because it was different that the one we have in California. Next time I will visit the other park. My favorite ride was the Hulk ride. I finally got to try butterbeer and it was so delicious! I loved it.
Tuesday we went to Downtown Disney which is called Disney Springs. Then we came back home to California.
