Around The ‘Disney’ World – Epcot’s Future World (East)

Epcot's Future World may not be "officially" divided into east and west on Disney maps but the area does lend itself quite well to that type of separation. The east portion contains primarily the "biggie" attractions as well as a few other very entertaining items. As you enter Future World through the no longer active Leave A Legacy area you are greeted by the park icon, Spaceship Earth. This is not just an icon but also a very entertaining and educational foray into the world of communication … [Read more...]

Around The ‘Disney’ World – Morocco Pavilion

The Morocco Pavilion in Epcot's World Showcase is one of my personal favorites. It seems to get overlooked by a lot of folks and that's a shame because it is not only quite beautiful and intricate, it is perhaps the most accurate rendition of the country represented than any other pavilion. Here are a few interesting facts about the pavilion and a bit about Morocco:It is the only pavilion in the World Showcase actually sponsored by a country.

Five Rides To Avoid If You Are Prone To Motion Sickness

Motion sickness is something that can really mess up your day. Some folks, like me, are extremely susceptible and they either have to skip some of Walt Disney World's best attractions or find a treatment that helps keep you from getting that horrible queasy feeling (or worse). There are as many ways to calm motion sickness as there are people with that issue. I can't recommend any but I have found one that works for me so before you go experimenting you might want to check with your Doctor to … [Read more...]

Around The “Disney” World – Frontierland

Frontierland is somewhat unique when compared to the other Magic Kingdom "lands". It has 2 major E-ticket attractions and 3 minor attractions, not many when compared to the other lands but - it's 2 majors are among the best the Magic Kingdom has to offer. Not only are they terrific attractions they make up 2/3 of the Magic Kingdom Mountain Range.

The Best “Free” Extras At Walt Disney World

There are lots of "extras" to be enjoyed at Walt Disney World. Some of them are hard ticket events requiring the purchase of a separate (and often expensive) ticket, some of them require that you attend a dinner show (also not cheap), but there are some that only require that you be in the park to enjoy them. These are, again in my opinion only, the three best "Free" extras available and they are so significant that many visitors plan their vacations to coincide with them.The Osborne Family … [Read more...]

Animal Kingdom – Top 5 Attractions For Seniors

Seniors have different expectations from Walt Disney World than the hordes of younger visitors that visit the parks daily. We look for things that we can sit back and enjoy rather than have our bodies bounced around and exposed to G-forces. Your choices at the Animal Kingdom may be different from mine but if you are a senior I think in most instances you will at least enjoy the ones I suggest.Festival Of The Lion King - Perhaps the best stage show at the Walt Disney World resort. It's more … [Read more...]
