Disney World

While we were at the Thousand Trails Orlando we purchased an eight day pass to Walt Disney World. We went a couple of days while we were at the resort, then moved over to Fort Wilderness Campground at Disney World for five days. We had been to WDW with our kids, but now it was time to experience it on our own.  We had a wonderful time!

Visiting Disney World in January was much different than July.  Most of the time we had cool temperatures in the 60's and 70's and little humidity.

We did, however, have our share of some temperature extremes, but nothing like up north and even in Texas.

One day we were enjoying a sunny day in the 70's

and a couple of days later, it was drizzling and in the 40's.  Thank goodness for indoor shows and rides that day.

We enjoyed the landscaping at all four of the Disney attractions, Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios.

We ventured on Mt. Everest (it's a roller coaster that has a partial backwards drop) in Animal Kingdom


and found ourselves going back over and over again (three times) to the Hollywood Studios.  There, Hollywood Hotel of Terror and the Rock and Roll Roller Coaster were not to be missed experiences.

We enjoyed the stunt shows at Hollywood Studios, the Indiana Jones movie and

Lights! Motors! Action! The Extreme Stunt Car Show.

We even took in a couple of performances of the American Idol Experience.

We enjoyed dinner at the Hollywood Brown Derby.

The Wishes fireworks show was definitely not to be missed.  The slide show that is on the castle fifteen minutes before the fireworks was also magnificent.

 So many people have enjoyed this wonderful, magical place throughout the years. Just think, all because of a man and a mouse.


  1. Oh, I want to be you. Love WDW, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and Epcot. Tower of Terror is one of my favorite rides. Haven't ever been on the Rock 'n' Rollercoaster, it hadn't been built the last time I was there.

    What a fun time! And no big crowds. Nice.

  2. Sounds like you are having a wonderful time. And Texas sure isn't having Texas weather right now.
