Disney World Florida

 

Magic Kingdom

 

Magic Kingdom definitely brings out the child in you and the kids love it too. The rides are great fun and most are suitable for s

 

mall children. If you have young children head for Fantasyland where there are no height restrictions on any of the rides, or see Mickey at his Toontown Fair. For older children Tommorowland and Frontierland for fast rides and big adventures. The Disney parade is real favourite you get to see many of the Disney characters so don't forget your camera!!

 

Tip

If you have young children in your group why not try a character lunch and mingle with Tiger, Whinnie the Pooh, Piglet and Eeyore too at the Crystal Palace restaurant. You should book in advance but you can turn up at midday and there may be a cancellation.

 


Epcot

 

The world showcase where you can walk around miniature countries like France, China, Canda and Mexico. Each country has a restaurant serving local dishes, book early in the day if you have a preference for dinner as it can get very busy. There are rides and interactive games in Futureland, where you can discover Imagineering.

 

Tip

If you would like to see the firework display but do not want to hang around for several hours, then why not leave the park and go for an evening meal and return a few hours later for the show (its definitely worth it!) Don’t forget to have your hand stamp before you leave.

 


Disney Hollywood Studios

 

If you are movie fans you will love Disney Hollywood Studios, formerly known as MGM Studios. The Indiana Jones show is great and you may even get plucked from the audience to participate!. The Star Tours ride takes you on an exhilerating simulator ride through a Star Wars adventure. Or train to be a Jedi at the new Jedi training academy. Also new at Hollywood Studios the interactive Toy Storey Mania ride is lots of fun. You can fast track for this ride so no need to queue. The Rocking Roller Coaster this is a must, it's fast so not for the faint hearted. Don't forget to catch the spectacular shows.

 

Tip

The evening movie light and magic show is in a seated outdoor auditorium, this does get busy so make sure you head there at least 30 minutes before to get a seat.

 


Animal Kingdom

 

Take a magical journey through a world of animals both real and fantastic where the lion is mighty, but imagination is king! The Lion King show is fantastic as is the safari tour. Beware you will get wet on the water ride!
