Magical Disney Vacation
My name is Sylvia and this past fall, my family and
I traveled to Orlando, Florida home of the famous Disney World Resorts.
I have been to Disney many times, but this time was particularly
special because I was able to share this amazing adventure with
my immediate family and extended family. Seeing the joy on the faces
of my loved ones made this such a wonderful experience.
We were there
during the hurricanes of 2004 however we weren't really affected
too much at the resorts. The weather was warm and sunny and the
wonder in the faces of both the children and adults made the trip
unforgettable. If I had to choose one word to describe our vacation,
it would be "Amazing."
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, spent relaxing afternoons
in a hammock or sleeping in a beach chair, and quiet afternoons
walking along the beach. This relaxation was much needed as
we were busy with a myriad of super fun activities throughout
the majority of our trip. We went swimming, shopping, park-hopping,
boating, and watching fireworks, laser light shows, and parades.
And, of course we had some really great park adventures too!
It was so cool
to see the different Disney Resorts up close. Each resort was very
different from the next. They have resorts designed to fit the needs
of all families. We stayed in the Disney Wilderness Lodge. The Resort
had lots of 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 building was log construction
and 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.
We also stayed
at Disney's Polynesian Resort. We stayed at the Concierge level
and absolutely loved it. It is a must for families. The Polynesian
features a Lilo & Stitch tropical feel. The Resort offers easy
access to the parks by tram or boat (to Magic Kingdom & Epcot),
or a bus to the other parks. Its proximity allows you to get into
the parks easily, even if it is just for a single event or show.
The Resort offers the best of both worlds with a lake and a pool.
We also loved the restaurants on property at the Polynesian.
best part of the vacation was enjoying watching all of the smiling
families, including my own, make lasting memories together.
