Orlando, Florida – Disney World

Disney World

NIKON D70S, Nikon 18-200 VR

It’s summer time and the kids are on vacation.  Time to hit your local Disney!  We lived in Orlando for 2+ years…so we visited Disney World many times!   Who would not want to visit Magic Kingdom with such highlights as Its a Small World, Space Mountain,  Cinderella’s Castle (the iconic gateway to the theme park), Country Bear Jamboree, Haunted Mansion, Hall of Presidents and much more!!!  I can remember the days when I was young and my favorite ride was 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea….it’s gone now. 

We have visited Dinsey at all times of the year.  If you go during the summer – you must deal with the crowds and heat.  We found if you go in November its quiet and cooler – but tough to do as the kids are in school.  We even went on Christmas Eve to watch the special Christmas fireworks show over Cinderella’s castle.   Along Main Street just before the show – Disney made it snow (fake snow) – but it was a great touch!  They think of everything! 

Disney has lots of hotels and special deals to experience.  I’ll note some in future posts.  One of our favorites was Chef Mickey’s – there you have a breakfast buffet at the Disney Contemporary Resort with many of the Disney Characters!  Fun!  If you have a little one – it’s a must!   I remember we took our daughter there for her first birthday…she was walking around checking out the scene and Goofy was following her a few feet behind for a few minutes and she had no idea!  I got it on video – just too cute!   Have a Magical day!
