Walt Disney World
DESCRIPTION: What hasn’t been written, said or televised about Walt Disney World — the happiest place on Earth! The Magic Kingdom features Pirates of the Caribbean, Space Mountain, The Disney Castle, Monsters Inc., The Haunted Mansion, Main Street, Mickey’s Philaharmagic and of course, the Nighttime Spectacular fireworks. EPCOT is no slouch either with its Test Track, Honey, I Shrunk The Audience, IllumiNations, Journey Into Imagination With Figment, Spaceship Earth and Innoventions: The Road to Tomorrow attractions; Disney Hollywood Studios features Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster, Fantasmic, Playhouse Disney – Live on Stage, Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular, Beauty and the Beast, and Voyage of The Little Mermaid attractions. One of Disney’s newer interactive theme parks, Animal Kingdom Park roars with excitement from days gone by and the present; check out DINOSAUR, Festival of the Lion King, It’s Tough to be a Bug, Kali River Rapids, Primeval Whirl and last but not least Mickey’s Jammin’ Jungle Parade. With so many lakes in the region it only seems natural that Disney would open two world-class water theme parks. Blizzard Beach features Downhill Double Dipper, Slush Gusher, Teamboat Springs, Cross Country Creek, and Tike’s Peak, a play area for tots. For more active engagement in water sports there’s Typhoon Lagoon featuring Humunga Kowabaunga, a side-by-side 214-foot enclosed speed slide, Mayday Falls, Castaway Creek and a magnificent Surf Pool. Go from theme park to theme park on convenient Disney monorails, ferryboats and motor-coaches. There is no expiration date on unused days when you purchase a Disney Park Hopper® PLUS Tickets in advance, AND there is no waiting in line.
