You can see a person pass by with a dog every- where in the big cit- ies, and many ... more. less.
dogs also have clothes, they look very lovely. But no matter how lovely they are, the owners must observe the laws. Now, I am going to introduce the laws of raising dogs in China.<br><br> In the big cities, it is illegal for dogs to be in the public places unless they are on a lead. In other words, in the public places, the dogs must wear the collars which are tied by ropes. That way, the owners can control their dogs and prevent them from attacking other people.<br><br> It is very dangerous to be bitten by the dogs, because it is easy to be infected by the virus. Therefore, if you want to raise a dog, you must bring your dog to the animal hospital to take the injections first. But it is not enough.<br><br> If you are bit- ten by the dogs you have to go to the hos- pital to take the injection, even though it is ex- pensive. Otherwise you may die. In addition, there are some laws about how much noise the dogs can make.<br><br> If the dogs make noise to dis- turb the neighbors, the owners would be fined. So you have to take some measures to make the dogs keep quiet. For example, you can train them.<br><br> In some residences, it is not al- lowed to raise any pets, including dogs. Espe- cially in the hotels, airports and stations, it is illegal to bring the pets. These are the laws of raising dogs in most big cities in China.<br><br> Additionally, there are some special laws in some special places. For example, in Hong Kong, people who own dogs must buy the li- censes for their dogs, and the dogs must wear the collars with the license numbers on it. That way, if the dogs get lost or left in the streets, the owners can be found.<br><br> If the owners cannot found after two weeks, the dogs will be killed. The license system has another advantage. If the owners mistreat their dogs in any way, they will have their licenses taken away so that they can not raise any pets again.<br><br> These are the spe- cial laws of raising dogs in some special places. Dogs also have rights, it is inhuman to mis- treat or kill the dogs, but it is not illegal in China, because there is no law for protecting the pets, even the dogs. Therefore, every year, countless dogs are left in the streets, or killed for selling.<br><br> It not only violates the dogs 9 rights, but also does bad to the society. Now, in some developed countries, there are laws not only for protecting pets 9 lives, but also their property. For example, in Hawaii and about 20 states in America, there are also laws for the pets to inherit their owners 9 money.<br><br> So setting laws to protect the dogs is essential for im- proving people 9s life and social civilization. Laws of Raising Dogs Written by Jason From China University of Bridgeport Summer2, 2007 Page 3 Have you ever heard of Harry Potter? I think most people know it.<br><br> A boy named Harry Potter has studied at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft. He always flights against the Lord Voldemort who killed his parents and wanted to kill him. The fifth Harry Potter movie was released last month.<br><br> So many fans went to the theater to see this movie. At the same time the last book in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, was released. This summer, Harry Potter is coming.<br><br> The Harry Potter series is favored by many children and adults because: First, the author has written this series for ten years. Since the first novel was released, the book has been the best - seller of that year. Right now the novel has been translated into more than sixty four languages and has been successful worldwide.<br><br> So many people from many countries are fascinated in it. Second, five Harry Potter series novels have been made into movies by Warner Bros. In the films, Harry Potter 9s witchcraft world became real pictures.<br><br> Through the movie, more audiences liked this story. If you don 9t want to read a long novel, you should watch the film of Harry Potter. I am sure you will like it.<br><br> Why is the film wonderful? The use of digital technology in the film was successful. The entire movie 9s production cost was high.<br><br> Half of the money was used for special effects just with digital technology and perfect execu- tion. The movie made every audience enjoy seeing Harry Potter and his magical world. Third, in the story, Harry encountered many difficulties.<br><br> But he has always been brave and strong 4 just like a hero although he was a boy. And his friends gave him help and support. Friendship is important for everyone.<br><br> In the book, the author described many real - life problems; for example the pure - blood wizards discriminated against other students. The book taught children what is correct. A theme park of the movie will be built in Orlando, Florida, and will open in late 2009.<br><br> At that time, many fans can go to this theme park. Harry Potter will continue its popularity. Harry Potter Written by Alison From China University of Bridgeport Summer2, 2007 Page 4 Australia is a large country with few people; it is located in the south of the world.<br><br> When we have summer time here, it is winter there. I traveled there in May, 2007. Australia is the place where my life changed.<br><br> Australia has many beautiful cities, people there are very kind, the environment there is very clean, and it is a good place for traveling. There are many famous cities in Australia. Sydney is one of the world 9s biggest cities, and it has world famous buildings such as the Sydney Opera House.<br><br> It is also the financial city of Australia, like New York City is the fi- nancial city of the US. There is a town in Syd- ney which is called China Town; many Chi- nese people live in that place. The town has real Chinese restaurants, but it is expensive.<br><br> Most of us like it very much. Canberra, which is the capital of Australia, is near by Sydney. We visited the government, museum, and li- brary.<br><br> My aunt told us that famous actor 9s Jack Chen 9s father lives there. Also there is a cen- tral park in Canberra, and in the middle of the lake there is a big fountain. It is a nice city that has a lot of trees and flowers.<br><br> People who live there are very friendly. My young brother lives in Brisbane. We visited my brother 9s school, and the students in that school are very friendly.<br><br> They took us outside, and we had BBQ with them. There was a teacher who had been to China in 2001, in her mind there was a song called Meteor Garden. She wanted to learn it, and we taught her that song.<br><br> At the school party, we sang that song together. We lived in my aunt 9s house in Brisbane; they only had one son, so they liked children very much. My aunt is a good chef.<br><br> Every meal she changed different styles for us. My uncle is a good man, he took good care of us, washed clothes, cleaned the garden. On the weekdays, he took us to go fishing; it was so fun.<br><br> Their son taught us how to play golf, which we had never played be- fore. In that case, we communicated with na- tive people, it was a good way to improve our English. The environment there was clean, when we were waiting for a bus, we could sit down on the ground.<br><br> Australia has two famous animals: kanga- roos and koalas. My aunt took us to see the fa- mous animals in a big grasslands in Brisbane. I remembered that I saw the kangaroo for the first time and my heart was very excited and happy.<br><br> It looked so cute. When I neared it, it would run away quickly. However I felt very disappointed, I didn 9t see the koala in the big grasslands.<br><br> Australia University of Bridgeport Summer2, 2007 Page 5 Australia is a great place for traveling. It has many beautiful places such as the Movie World and Golden Beach. During that time, we visited the Movie World.<br><br> It was a large and beautiful place. We took a lot of pictures with Spiderman and Superman, but they were not the real actors from the movies. We took the roller coaster, which was amazing.<br><br> After tak- ing the roller coaster, I couldn 9t find north and south. We had a wonderful time in Movie World. Golden Beach was a nice place to be, the sand on the beach looked like gold.<br><br> We saw the sunset which, I had never seen before. We played soccer on the beach; it was a great time that I 9ll never forget. Australia has many beautiful cities such as Sydney, Canberra, and Brisbane.<br><br> People there are very kind. They were friendly to us. The environment is very clean and it is a good place for traveling.<br><br> Australia is the place where my life changed. After I traveled to Australia, I worked harder and harder. If you are planning on a trip, Australia might be a good choice for you!<br><br> Australia Written by Tina From Taiwan University of Bridgeport Summer2, 2007 Page 6 What is Snowboarding? Snowboarding is a sport that evolved from skateboarding and surfing. It is often described as surfing or skateboarding on snow.<br><br> You can feel fast and cold wind. I like this sport very much, and now I will introduce snowboarding. I think you will be interested this sport.<br><br> Snowboarding Styles Snowboarding has 3 styles. You can choose your styles. In my opinion, if you want to learn or ride a snowboard, I suggest free ride because it is easy to ride.<br><br> Now I will introduce these types of snowboarding. First is Freestyle. Freestyle riding focuses on jumps, tricks, rail slides, half - pipes and switch riding.<br><br> It is very dangerous and extreme. Free- style equipment uses a soft boot and a rela- tively short, maneuverable board. It is very dangerous so you should wear protection such as helmet, thermal underwear, and gloves.<br><br> Second is Free ride. Free riding is the most general style of snowboarding and very popu- lar in my country. It is less dangerous than Freestyle but you should wear protection.<br><br> Free ride equipment uses a soft boot. Boards in this category are relatively longer and more direc- tional in their shape. It is easy to learn for chil- dren, students and women.<br><br> Third is Free carve/Race. This style needs a little professionalism and practice. It is very different from freestyle because it focuses on carving and racing.<br><br> It takes place on hard - pack or groomed runs and focuses on the ultimate carving turn. Little or no jumping takes place in this discipline. It is also called alpine snow- boarding.<br><br> Free carve equipment is comprised of a hard boot and plate binding system, with stiff, narrow and long boards. This list is what you need for snow board- ing: If you want to ride a snowboard you need and you should wear a protection. Snowboard- ing is a winter sport so you need warm clothes.<br><br> Snowboard Boots, Snowboard Bindings, Snowboarding Jacket, Snowboarding Pants, Thermal Underwear, Gloves, Helmet, Sun- screen, Sunglasses, Goggles and Hand/Foot Warmers. <Decks> What is Snowboarding University of Bridgeport Summer2, 2007 Page 7 <Binding> <Goggles> <Gloves> <Helmet> <Wrist protection> <Boots> Beginner 9s mental attitude! Ready for snowboarding!<br><br> cVery carefully! d from Steven. It is right. But you need enough time for practice.<br><br> Specially dress in comfortable, loose - fitting snow clothing. Don't forget gloves, goggles and a helmet. Especially for beginners, con- sider wearing a pair of wrist guards and pro- tection.<br><br> You already know that you can take ski lift! Snowboarding is more dangerous than ski- ing Snowboarding is more danger- ous than skiing and snowboard- ers also tend to be injured more often than skiers. Research shows that snowboarders are more than twice as likely as skiers to sustain serious fractures, get concussions and lose consciousness, dislocate their joints, and have their teeth knocked out.<br><br> Ski parts are easy to separate from your body but snowboard parts do not separate. It means if you have an accident or fall down, it is more dangerous because your legs are held on the snowboard. In my opinion, snowboarders should have on helmet and wear waist protec- tion, arms protection and goggles.<br><br> Last impor- tant thing is better to keep off drugs and alco- hol while snowboarding. What is Snowboarding University of Bridgeport Summer2, 2007 Page 8 - Get formal training in proper snowboard- ing techniques - Pick the right time and place to learn good weather, uncrowned slope, and soft groomed snow. - Wear protective gear such as helmet, gog- gles and wrist guards.<br><br> - Gear should be insulated, waterproofed, and layered clothing. - Protect exposed skin with sunscreen with high sun protection factor. - Snowboard with a buddy trained in first aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation.<br><br> - Snowboard on patrolled areas, not on un- grounded trails or in wooded areas. - Preprogram your telephone with the ski patrol number. - Be aware of your location at all times to guide rescue efforts if needed - Don't use drugs or alcohol when snow- boarding.<br><br> Finding a Snowboard that is best for you The first step is finding the most suitable snowboard for your needs. For example, you need to determine the type of snowboarding you plan to do. Freestyle, free ride and race are all different styles of snowboarding.<br><br> Dif- ferent types of boards are used in each style. Make sure you try on different sizes, brands, and models. How should we practice snowboarding in summer?<br><br> Snowboarding is a winter sport. It means you need snow and snow hills. So you can not ride snowboards in summer.<br><br> Now I will give some advice about how to practice snowboarding in summer as a snowboarder. First is skateboard. It can replace snowboard.<br><br> So you can ride a board in road, school, and backyard. Second is waterboard. It can be used on lakes or rivers or water surface.<br><br> It is very similar to snowboard but it needs many necessary things. I recom- mend skateboarding more than waterboarding. Or if you have enough money, you can go to different countries famous for ski resorts.<br><br> What is Snowboarding University of Bridgeport Summer2, 2007 Page 9 Justin 9s Special Suggestion: Don 9t try extreme snowboarding - -- it 9s very dangerous!! If you practice hard you can ride very well like me. <Korea ski resort> Justin 9s Second Suggestion: If you don 9t have enough money to buy a snowboard -- try using your grammar book instead!<br><br> <Writer> What is Snowboarding Written by Justin From Korea University of Bridgeport Summer2, 2007 Page 10 Every day we are busy in our own business and our issues, but we are thinking about tak- ing a vacation to escape from our routine. I want to take this moment (opportunity) to show you one place to get you away from your routine, to make you forget everything and make you fill of life. If are thinking about Co- lombia, you are right!<br><br> Colombia has a grand variety of interesting sites and a grand variety of cultural resources. Colombia has many kinds of geography; Andes Mountains - composed by three branches of mountain chains, which cross the whole country, Carib- bean and Pacific lowlands coastal regions, val- leys and flatlands. This geography allows Co- lombia to have different climates, which influ- ence the customs, the food and the develop- ment of the towns and cities.<br><br> Each region has a great variety of things to do every time of the year. You just need to choose what you want to do. I will tell you some activities and impor- tant things to do and I will make a tour for you doing a route covering different people 9s tastes& <The Santuario de las Lajas has been a impor- tant meeting point for many traders of the Pacific and Cauca re- gions.> Does anybody say food?<br><br> One of the most important likes is the food, and I 9ll give you a brief sight about Colombian food. Each region has a special way to make its dishes, and I will start from the northern re- gion to the southern region. In the Caribbean coast, the predominant ingredient is the sea- food.<br><br> Some dishes are accompanied with co- conut rice and bananas. In the Antioquia re- gion, most of the dishes are made with beans, rice and ground meat. The accompaniment is composed by arepas, plantain and avocado.<br><br> Now, going to the center of the country we find cities like Bogotá. In these cities, the dishes are rich in potatoes and maniocs. The flatlands are known for its barbeque dishes and the meat is cooked in many forms.<br><br> Colom- bia due to its variety of fruits has become a paradise for the dessert lovers. In the main cit- ies you could find zones with a lot of restau- rants which are dedicated to making the tradi- tional Colombian food. Cities like Bogotá, Medellin and Cartagena have famous places, not only known because of the restaurants, but its special and romantic atmosphere.<br><br> Does anybody say music? From the food we pass to the music and fes- tivals. Over the years, since the American Conquest, Colombian music has had influence from many cultures including the Amerindian music, giving as a result, a range of types of music.<br><br> Many festivals in Colombia turn around the music and other cultural expres- sions, like the famous Barranquilla Carnival , which is one of largest festivals in Latin Amer- ica; &Coffee...Shakira...Salsa? University of Bridgeport Summer2, 2007 Page 11 this festival shows the influence of the African and Amerindian rhythms in its parades. The Manizales fair, known by its bullfighting fair and Coffee Beauty Reign, gather together peo- ple from many countries, especially from South America and Spain, who want to enjoy the one of the greatest Colombian fairs, and obviously, enjoy its landscape, music, the Bullfight Fair, and of course, the coffee.<br><br> Co- lombia has festivals for every likes, going to the South; we could find Cali, which is known for its Fair and its horse ridings, celebrated in the last week of the year. In the Cali Fair you could feel the Salsa for everywhere, because of its big concerts. Every year the most known salsa bands come to Cali Fair.<br><br> The warmness of the people and the concerts have made this Fair become the perfect place for the Salsa lovers. The Rock and Pop has a special space, not only in the younger people, but in the cul- ture of the big cities regardless of the age. Over the latest years, many singers and bands have come up, now artists like Shakira , Car- los Vives and Juanes among others, are a little sample of our new music.<br><br> Bogota has the big- gest Rock Festival in Colombia, called Rock at Park . This festival gathers the main bands of national scene and rock bands from other countries. And I can 9t skip over the largest theater festival in the world, The Iberoameri- can Theater Festival ; celebrated in Bogotá every two years.<br><br> This festival paralyzes the city, and Bogotá becomes a large theater, with presentations in the most important Bogotá 9s stages, even its streets. These are some of the important festivals and cultural samples, be- cause Colombia is in continuous activity, and has some festival every time during a year! <The Barranquilla Carnival parade - At the begin- ning of year Barranquilla is only color, music and fun.> Does anybody say history?<br><br> For the history lovers, Colombia has a great historic treasure. Bogotá owns a grand variety of museums dedicated to our history, one of the most important is the Gold Museum ; it has a large collection of metal objects and other stuff made by the Colombian archeologi- cal cultures. Some cities and towns conserve the evidence of the times of the Spain Con- quest; towns like Villa de Leiva , Mompox, and Barichara looks like the older times.<br><br> Its colonial architecture drives us to the past. One of the our most valued archeological treasures is the Archeological Park of San Agustin, located in the Huila department,; it has a wide variety of stone figures made by a northern Andean culture that disappeared about in the c.VII A.D. The landscape in this region is beautiful, and its perfect to make a horse riding trip nearby to the Macizo Colom- biano (Colombian Massif) and the Estrecho del Madgalena .<br><br> &Coffee...Shakira...Salsa? University of Bridgeport Summer2, 2007 Page 12 <The Villa de Leiva 9s central plaza drives almost 500 year ago.> Does anybody say a romantic dinner? At last I want to tell you about the some tourist places.<br><br> In the region called Coffee - Growers Axis, composed by Antioquia, Caldas, Risaralda and Quindío department, the coffee becomes the main character. In Montenegro, nearby to the Armenia city is located the Cof- fee Park; this theme park has a museum dedi- cated to the coffee process and amazing world 9s coffee garden among other ecological attractions, and of course of one of the places that the coffee lovers must visit. Cartagena is no doubt one of the most lovely and romantic Colombian cities.<br><br> Its walls and its old town have a special atmosphere, which makes it unique. Cartagena is a city to enjoy at day and at night. At day its colonial streets, the trips to the San Felipe castle and the tour at beach are some of many things to do.<br><br> At night, this city is perfect for the couples that are in search of romantic place. The old town gathers a wide variety of restaurants and its architec- ture are perfect for an unforgettable evening. This just was a quick look among the large amount of things that Colombia has to show.<br><br> Every time Colombia has activities for all likes and any age. You should enjoy the eco- logical tours, passing for our festivals fairs, to the nocturnal activity of the largest cities. The beauty of the Colombian landscape and warm- ness of its people have made over the times many tourists decide to make Colombia their home.<br><br> Now when you think of a time to rest and to have a really good time, you will think about Colombia!! <The viewpoint in Montenegro, Quindío. A perfect place to see whole Coffee Pak and enjoy its land- scape.> Written by Carlos From Colombia &Coffee...Shakira...Salsa?<br><br> University of Bridgeport Summer2, 2007 Page 13 University of Bridgeport Summer2, 2007 Page 14 What did you do during the spring break? Some people slept every day. Others visited New York.<br><br> Some students went home. I went to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida with my friend. Have you ever gone to Walt Disney World in Florida?<br><br> Walt Disney World is located 35 km southwest of Orlando and each park is connected by a bus, 19 th Century - style ferry and monorail, etc. Walt Disney World is the biggest amusement park in the world. Since it opened in 1983, 25,000,000 people have visited every year.<br><br> Walt Disney World is divided into four theme parks --- Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot and MGM Studio. Walt Disney World is exciting all the time, be- cause there is always something happening --- not only shows of Disney characters in day- time, but also fireworks and parades at night. I 9m going to explain the most interesting parts of two theme parks.<br><br> ² Animal Kingdom If you love animals, you should go to Ani- mal Kingdom! Animal Kingdom's 500 acres are home to some 1700 animals representing 250 different species with Disney 9s characters throughout the park. The animals are divided into seven Theme parts --- Oasis, Discovery Island, Camp Minnie - Mickey, Africa, Rafiki's Planet Watch, Asia, and Dino Land USA.<br><br> First, you will walk throughout Oasis in Ani- mal Kingdom. Oasis is no finer way to intro- duce you to Disney's Animal Kingdom than through the lush tropical landscape of the Oasis. As you stroll, you can see the animal paw im- prints, an insect on tropical plants and trees, exotic birds and brightly colored flamingos in small houses.<br><br> Second, you will see the spec- tacular Tree of Life in Discovery Island . The Tree of Life is sculptured over 300 intricate animal images from the grain to the grain. Inside the cTree 9s d base is the delightful 3 - D show cIt 9s Tough to be a Bug, d through a bug's perspective.<br><br> This 3 - D show initiates the audi- ence to be bugs for a day. The theater is ex- tremely dark and audiences have many sur- prises awaiting them during the performance - it's visual as well as tactile ( - like a skunk 9s gas). That 9s so exciting.<br><br> WALT DISNEY WORLD University of Bridgeport Summer2, 2007 Page 15 Third, you will experience one of the best shows at the cFestival of the Lion King d in Camp Minnie - Mickey . The cFestival of the Lion King d is a virtual explosion of colors, grandeur music and amaz- ing performance. You will be interested in 30 minutes of a variety of stages with Timon, Simba and all their pals in this breathtaking show.<br><br> You 9ll hear some of cThe Lion King 9s d most popular music performed by magnificent singers. In addition, in Camp Minnie - Mickey you can take some pictures with Disney 9s characters; Minnie, Mickey, Goofy and Donald, etc. Moreover, you can see real animals in Africa.<br><br> That 9s Kilimanjaro Safaris! A ride trams on the Kilimanjaro Safari will give you a chance to see many of them as they take you through the African Savannah. While you ride that, you might be surprised because giraffes are eating a leaf at your back.<br><br> After you see previous things, you will need rest time. That time, you should ride a Wildlife Express Train in Rafiki 9s Planet Watch. While you ride a rustic train, you can travel that sa- vannah several animal housing and care areas of the park.<br><br> Sixth, you come into Asia. In Asia you can ride more interesting and thrill things. That 9s Maharajah Jungle Trek and Expedition Ever- est!<br><br> WALT DISNEY WORLD University of Bridgeport Summer2, 2007 Page 16 Maharajah Jungle Trek is so cool because after riding, you 9re wet. A boat is quick, so you can 9t lower your guard. If you ride with unknown people, you can get close to them.<br><br> When you splash water, you will laugh to- gether. In addition, while you ride the Expedition Everest, you 9re excited. It is about Asia 9s leg- end of Mountain Everest.<br><br> Your train unexpect- edly reaches the end of the track. This roller coaster, which travels both backwards and for- wards, concludes after people face the abomi- nable snowman. Last, you can see dinosaurs by walking into Dinoland U.<br><br> S. A. After you take some pictures with dinosaurs, and you can watch "Finding Nemo." "Finding Nemo" is the musical which has amazing singing, dancing about a fish story in undersea world.<br><br> Performers run in Theater and any moment you will feel like you 9re with them. This 30 - minute performance is sure to delight your whole family! These are best rides in Animal Kingdom.<br><br> Wow, are you tired? You shouldn 9t feel tired because we rode many more things in other parks. Now, let 9s go into Magic Kingdom!!!<br><br> ² Magic Kingdom Welcome to Magic Kingdom! Magic King- dom can represent theme park of four parks in Walt Disney World. It is di- vided into seven Theme parts, also -- Main Street, Adventureland, Frontier- land, and Liberty Square, Fantasyland, Mickey 9s Toontown Fair and Tomorrow land.<br><br> Each part of the parks has its own theme and rides and attractions to match that theme. experience all WALT DISNEY WORLD University of Bridgeport Summer2, 2007 Page 17 You can experience all of Disneyland in Magic Kingdom because Magic Kingdom has an adventure, fantasy and dreams of all chil- dren. Before you ride something, you should know about cFast pass. d Now, you will ask me, what is Fast pass?<br><br> That will be good for you. If you want to use a Fast pass, you don't have to wait until you want to ride some attractions. You must have your park admission ticket with you.<br><br> First, you have to put up your park admission ticket into Fast pass machine. Second, Fast pass has two times which are the beginning and ending time of each ride. So you have to check your Fast pass time.<br><br> Last, you have to return each Fast pass the time in Fast pass state 9s line. When you return, you'll be at the front of the line. But, you should be careful, because you can get another Fast pass two hours after the first one was distributed or one minute after the first one's time begins.<br><br> For example, if you got a Fast pass at 11am that was good between 12pm - 1pm, you could get another Fast pass at 12:01pm. Or if you got a Fast pass at 11am that was good between 3pm - 4pm, you could get anther Fast pass at 1pm. Ok!<br><br> Are you ready to ride something in Magic Kingdom? Before you are into the Magic Kingdom, you have to choose one of three rides; monorail, boat and ferryboat and you will go into the Magic Kingdom. First, you will see walkways which are stores in the style of animation.<br><br> Moreover, you can see the Cin- derella Castle by walking. Disney 9s characters dance, play and sing many times in front of Cinderella 9s Castle. That 9s so cool and fun.<br><br> WALT DISNEY WORLD University of Bridgeport Summer2, 2007 Page 18 From Main Street, you enter Adventureland by crossing a wooden planked bridge. cPirates of the Caribbean d is the most popu- lar attraction in Adventureland. You will ride a sail with Captain Jack Sparrow, and you enjoy a sail through the Spanish Main.<br><br> Captain Jack Sparrow sculpture looks like actor Johnny Depp. It 9s so fun. But you can 9t see actor Or- lando Bloom.<br><br> Suddenly, you will smell smoked something in walkway from Adventureland to Frontier- land. That smell is smoked turkey legs. Turkey legs are the most famous food in Walt Disney World.<br><br> Its taste is good and is really big. After you eat turkey legs and then you will ride Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Splash Moun- tain. Fast Pass is offered for Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.<br><br> Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad are one of the most popular rides in the Magic Kingdom. Splash Mountain is in the crash of the cas- cading water and these have one spot when the log flumes are located so that riders can see other people dropping. The drop that follows is very steep and everyone in the boat will get wet.<br><br> Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is roller coaster which is set in a gold mine, as a less thrilling roller coaster. It is for younger riders as well as those who do not like as intense rides. This has just enough to make it fun.<br><br> After riding best two attractions, you should ride Walt Disney Railroad in Frontierland. That at- traction will be through Fantasyland and it will take you to Mickey 9s Toontown Fair. Fantasy- land has many attractions for children and these are attractions about Pooh, Dumbo and Peter pan, etc.<br><br> In addition, if you want to meet your favorite Disney characters, you should go in Mickey 9s Toontown Fair. You can take some pictures and hang out pals with your characters in Mickey 9s Toontown Fair. Before into the Tomorrowland, you can see a parade about Disney 9s characters.<br><br> If you see your favorite characters, you should take some pictures quickly because they pass so fast. WALT DISNEY WORLD University of Bridgeport Summer2, 2007 Page 19 The last park is Tomorrowland! Tomorrow- land was originally designed to express Dis- ney's view of the future.<br><br> Tomorrowland has the most popular attraction, Space Mountain. Space Mountain is roller coaster which takes place indoors and in total darkness and adven- ture to the stars. It 9s so fast, and you can 9t see rail.<br><br> It 9s amazing. Oh, Space Mountain can use a fast pass, you don 9t forget. These are most popular attractions in Magic Kingdom.<br><br> You want to go hotel and have rest? But, it 9s not finished, you should see fireworks at night!!! Fireworks explode with vivid color and grand Disney 9s music in the back of Cinderella Castle.<br><br> When you see the largest fireworks, you can feel dreams come true. You will spend the night time which is spec- tacular fire work in Magic Kingdom.
