Oldies But Goodies – Take A Chance, Try Some New Restaurants


It's not our fault!! We, as Oldies, sometimes get a little set in our ways and when it comes to food and restaurant choices we can tend (not everyone) to always go to the same restaurants and order the same thing. At least for me it came from the way we ate when I was a child. I'm not complaining, the food was very nutritious and my Mom was a great cook - BUT - Wednesday was always Prince Spaghetti day, Friday was always Fish, Saturday was always Franks and Beans, etc. etc. etc!!! See where I'm … [Read more...]

Oldies But Goodies – Renew Your Childhood On The Carousel


O.K. Oldies, it's time to recall something we all enjoyed as kids and something we can enjoy again as bigger kids. I'm talking about the Prince Charming Regal Carousel which I think should still be called Cinderella's Golden Carousel but they didn't ask my opinion or give me a vote.

Although they don't take your breath away with thrills they do provide a pleasant diversion … [Read more...]

Oldies But Goodies – Don’t Pass Up Epcot’s United States Pavilion

There are several attractions within the majestic pavilion area:Before you even enter you will be … [Read more...]

I'll do them in reverse order of preference finishing up with our personal favorite. All of these "special" experiences require reservations and all but one can be reserved online.5.

Oldies But Goodies – The Ride Designed With Us In Mind!!


Sure, there aren't any loops, no 60 mph takeoffs, and no 13 story drops but The Great Movie Ride is still one of my favorites. A lot of Oldies feel the same way for lots of reasons. A lot of the films represented in the attraction were released in the thirties, forties, and early fifties making Oldies the only group of people who saw them in an actual theater the first time around. My fellow Oldies may not relish loops and drops but they love to reminisce about their younger days and this … [Read more...]
