26th birthday @ Enchanted Kingdom

January 03, 2011 Monday, This is my special day or should I say my 26th birthday!

Before my special day, I ask Ian if he has any plan on my birthday because last year he surprises me when we celebrated it in Araneta Coliseum to watch for the Disney on Ice. I can't forget how he makes some alibi when reaching the big dome and telling me that we were going somewhere until we find ourselves in the long queue of line entering the dome! Wow! What a wonderful surprise!

But this time, Ian and I decided to explore Enchanted Kingdom where the magic lives on, well this is our 3rd time to visit the themed park. Ian picked me at our house around 9am and go off to SM Makati for the shuttle. We avail the packages they offer, Php 740.00 per person including the back and forth shuttle service plus ride-all-you can entrance at E.K. We left SM parking station around 11:30am since Enchanted will be open by 12noon. When we finally reach E.K, the first thing we do is to exchange our ticket voucher in the orange-colored wrist tag to show that you bought the day pass. Please take note that there are some rides or theater that you need to pay an additional entrance fee like 4D Discovery Theater (Php 60.00), Zorb Water Ball, ATV Ride, Go Kart and Hunted House.

As all of you know that we are photographers indeed, we gran this opportunity to take lots of photos not only the place itself but of course pictures of us. ♥ Before we enter the theme park, we both agree that we take photographs first then have our lunch and go for the ride since it's really difficult for us to carry the tripod and camera at the same time while riding at the coaster. So here are some of our memorable snapshots.

Theme Park Entrance

Enchanted Kingdom is a place where families, friends and even lovers like us bond together and enjoy at the same time. Most people tag this theme park as "Disneyland of the Philippines" Well, since I already experience the Disneyland in Hongkong, I can say that this is TRUE! E.K consists of seven themed zones with different exciting attractions for all of us, Victoria Park, Boulderville, Midway Boardwalk, Jungle Outpost, Spaceport, Brooklyn and Portablello.

We tool lots of photos around and appreciate the place.

We had our late lunch at spaceport area while watching people riding at the Space Shuttle Max. Whoa! Finally, after a few minutes of rest, we decided to leave some of our baggage at the locker located at Victoria park and getting ready to experience the fabulous rides.

Here are some of the rides we tried. At Victoria Park, of course the famous Grand Carousel.

At Boulderville, the Boulderville Express.

At Midway Boardwalk, the Wheel of Fate, Dodgem and Roller Skater or the Mini Roller Coaster.

At Jungle Outpost, Swan Lake and the Amazon Grill where you can see that famous monkey. Hehe.

At Spaceport, we only took photos at the Astronaut near the entrance of Space Shuttle Max.

At Portabello, we paid Php 60.00 for the 4D Discovery Theater featuring Dora the Explorer. We also try the Flying Fiesta.

 At Brooklyn Zone, we visit the Rialto-a simulator ride where we enjoy watching Happy Feet. In this zone we also love taking lots of photos from different statue around the place.

Sad to say I wasn't able to meet and greet Eldar, the Wizard which is the main mascot of Enchanted Kingdom but I really enjoy celebrating my birthday in Enchanted Kingdom with of course my only honey. I love the fascinating sights and sounds of the rides, the food and seven themed zones and promise myself that I will come back here again.
