Ask any 10-year-old and they will assure you that Walt Disney World is the capital of Florida. For most families with kids or teens, this attraction is the Number 1 priority when visiting Florida. But it will take more than a weekend to cover Disney’s 47–square-mile kingdom, so to make the most of your time, check out Disney’s free DVD vacation planner which will help you map out the perfect trip.
Disney’s website also contains everything you will need to know about the parks, where to stay, what to do, etc.; however, it can take several hours just to peruse the site, so I’ve come up with several tried-and-true recommendations (with direct links to the Disney site) for places to stay and eat.
Disney has four theme parks: the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom. In addition, there are two water parks–Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon. Disney’s Downtown West End, Marketplace and Pleasure Island are also fun destinations, especially at night. I will be blogging new additions and special events at the park, so be sure to check all my blogs on Disney, as well as the pages for “Where to Stay” and “Where to Eat.”
