  • Expensive, and the lines were long, but it was fantastic. Pure art. It is the standard by which I will judge all other amusement parks. Everything was just so well done. Even waiting in the lines was part of the ride - there were artistic scenes and layouts along the way to examine and enjoy. On the Peter Pan line, you walk through beautifully laid out rooms, several of which have Tinker Bell magically twittering through. On the Splash Mountain line, there are fascinating pieces of mining equipment to look at and amusing signs to read. Compare this to other amusement parks where they just move you through like cattle. The Splash Mountain ride was the unexpected gem of the day. It was our favorite one. No spoilers. Everything was just so artistic. Enjoy!
  • Walt Disney World is known as the Most Magical Place on Earth for good reason. Everything is well thought out to provide guests with an experience unlike any other. There are 1000's of very friendly cast members who are wanting to insure the best possible visit. Each one takes pride in answering questions and doing whatever is necessary to bring happiness. There is something for everyone to do here no matter how old you are. The 4 parks: Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom and EPCOT each have there own focus. My personal favorite is EPCOT as I enjoy the World Showcase.
