few summers back my husband and I traveled to Florida to visit some family in
Sarasota. While there we spent some time in Orlando, home of the famous Disney
World. This vacation was particularly special because we were able to share this
amazing adventure with some of our extended family, including our favorite niece.
The weather was warm and
sunny and the atmosphere was perfect - gentle breezes and swaying palm trees surrounded
us. The whole area truly invoked feelings of amazement. We took peaceful walks
on the beach and spent relaxing afternoons in a hammock. This relaxation was much
needed as we were usually busy with a myriad of super fun activities like swimming,
park-hopping, boating, and watching fireworks and laser light shows. And, of course
we had some really great park adventures too! Universal Studios was the unanimous
We stayed in the Disney
Wilderness Lodge thanks to the advice of the fine folks at www.OrlandosBest.Net.
The Resort had tall pines that made you feel as if you were up North somewhere.
The pool was awesome; it had a replica of Old Faithful that would erupt right
in front of you. The log building had a great fireplace in the lobby. The Wilderness
Lodge is set in the perfect location. You can take a boat directly from the Lodge
to Magic Kingdom.
The absolute best part of
the vacation was enjoying watching all of the smiling families, including my own,
make lasting memories together.
Until next time, Happy Travels!
