Oldies But Goodies – Cirque du Soleil

la nouba

Let's face it fellow Seniors, we love to be entertained. We also love the chance to sit in a cool, shady area several times a day while touring Walt Disney World.

Oldies But Goodies – Seniors And Thrill Rides At Walt Disney World


Chip sent me an article not too long ago concerning Seniors who ride coasters. My memory was jogged by the article and reminded me of something that happened about twenty years ago.I made my first trip to Walt Disney World at the age of 44.
