A truly magical experience. As you enter the gates of Walt Disney
World you will be greeted by the amazing view of Cinderella's castle,
small shops and cafe's line the streets, but if you have a large
family it may be better to take a packed lunch. Magic Kingdom has
so much on offer for adults and children alike. Enjoy a variety
of white knuckle rides - splash mountain is great fun, even the
younger children will enjoy it (no under 7yrs). Space Mountain and
Big Thunder mountain are also great fun although height restrictions
will apply here also. The haunted house is a must and is suitable
for small children although the loud noises do unnerve a few. Effects
a scenes are amazing and range from moving gravestones to a ghostly
ballroom dance. If the rides are not your cup of tea enjoy the scenery
and wildlife, take plenty of photos of the children with their favourite
characters and marvel at the famous Disney parades. The parades
are truly out of this world wtih school bands and floats packed
with your favourite Disney characters. If you are lucky enough to
be there at night you may see the parade of lit floats glittering
in the night sky.
Lake Buena Vista, Fl 32830
Big screen, bright lights, MGM offers all this and more. Great rides
include the Rock N Roller Coaster that races around the track and
the Great Movie Ride. Rides and shows do change from time to time
as new characters and action films emerge. You can also take part
as an extra in some shows, so make sure you are there 20 mins early
to audition. The Tower of Terror certainly lives up to its name
as you plunge down the elevator shaft!!!
Exit 26B at State Road 536; follow signs for Fort Wilderness.
River country is a great water park and fun for the family. Here
you will find all manner of watery fun things to do. A quiet swim
perhaps, or a race down the rapids. There are many water slides,
a wacky bridge, fountains and swings. Visit kiddie cove with the
toddlers are jump on board the pirate ship and swing from the boom.
Great family fun!
7007 Sea World Drive Orlando, Florida
This is a truly wonderful park to visit, it offers plenty to do
and can easily occupy a full day. Wander along paths stopping at
the many sealife houses and shows along the way. Walk through buildings
with huge glass walls and see dolphins, penguins and mantees swim
by right in front of your eyes. In the shark house you will be transported
through a glass tunnel as sharks swim overhead. There are seals,
birds and horses to see here and don't forget Shamu. The shows at
Seaworld are brilliant, watch the acrobatics of the dolphins and
killer whales, then pop over to see the sea lions and the little
otter as they act out a pirate adventure. If you need a break, there
are plenty of places to sit and relax, there is even a small water
attraction for the children to play in.
