Expedition Everest

When you want to be thrilled, and even a little bit scared, Expedition Everest is the main ride to to experience in the Animal Kingdom theme park. Quite simply, this is a roller coaster that will take you high up to the Himalayas, both forwards and backwards, before coming face to face with creatures such as a yeti and the abominable snowman.

This is a great ride for all the family, and it’s very common for kids to want to go on again and again, don’t forget to try the new and improved Fastpass option. If you want to avoid the long lines and wait times that often form at the Expedition Everest ride, then it’s a good idea to use the Fastpass, so you are not waiting for 90 minutes for a ride.

Kilimanjaro Safari

Maybe you have always dreamed about going on a Safari but don’t have the funds to travel all the way to Africa? Well, thanks to Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World you don’t need to, you can take the Kilimanjaro Safari at the theme park, great fun adventure.

In a nutshell, you will be riding in a jeep and coming across many animals in their natural habitat. Don’t worry, this is completely safe, as the jeep will never go too far towards animals that could potentially hurt you and your family. Besides the ride is something that the animals are already used to. At the end of the day, the last thing you want is having the highlight of your vacation trying to fight off a hungry lion! But don’t worry…it won’t happen.

Dinosaur ride

Another popular attraction in the Animal Kingdom is the Dinosaur ride, and this is the perfect place to be if you have an interest in history. So what exactly is it? Well, once you are strapped in, expect to be taken on a fascinating ride through the Crustaceans era, where dinosaurs still ruled the earth and everybody else lived in fear. While this ride is mostly suitable for everybody, younger children might find it a bit too much as it does get scary and dark in some places.

Festival of the Lion King

Who doesn’t love the movie The Lion King? Thankfully, Disney have decided to include a show based on the popular movie, and it features a wide variety of acts and performances. This really is a great show for all the family, as it only lasts 30 minutes and the songs are great for singing along to. This is one of my favorites of all time, the show is absolutely wonderful. In addition, they select a few from the audience to par-take in the fun, and watching your kids dance away to songs from the Lion King, will be the highlight of your stay at Walt Disney World.

All in all, Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom is a place not to be missed the next time you visit Orlando. If you are Florida Resident, there is not cheaper time to visit the Magic Kingdom in Orlando, than right now. With so many perks being offered to Florida residents, this is the time to make your next Disney memories right now!


True Walt Disney World Vacation Specials

whygotodisneyWalt Disney World Vacation Specials

This is the time of the year to take advantage of Walt Disney World vacation specials. Summer is approaching and with the kids out of school, there is no better time to enjoy Walt Disney World. Walt Disney World is running a special this year that includes a free entrance to any one (1) Disney theme park of your choice.

For you vacationers that will be celebrating a birthday this summer, or for the remainder of the year, take advantage of this offer from Walt Disney. The gift is worth at least $65.00. Be advised that Walt Disney World does require proof of birth with a birth certificate preferably. In this recession crisis, this is quite a gift! Planning for Disney World can get expensive, take it from me I have been there at least 60 times in the last 15 years.

I can tell you that I have never been offered a special like this. I usually get the Florida Resident specials, but they never have allowed any one person to enter the park for free with a promotion. During the 911 tragedy, many of the theme parks across the United States offered Law enforcement, Fire Rescue, and Military personnel the ability to enter some selected theme parks free of charge, but not Walt Disney World. Among those allowed were Sea World, Busch Gardens, Miami Seaquarium, and a few others.

The Walt Disney Park hopper and other tickets are not compatible with the free birthday pass, they can however sell Walt Disney World modified park hoppers. For instance if one in your party qualifies for the free birthday pass, and your Disney trip consists of the 4 day park hopper, the party benefiting from the free ticket, would purchase the three day park hopper. Walt Disney World vacation specials are available online and in person. Have a safe and fun Disney vacation this Summer.

MagicKingdomPlan Your Next Walt Disney World Trip

So you are planning a Walt Disney World trip this Summer? Well you do not want to go anywhere near Walt Disney World without these fun tips. Disney World is the funnest place on Earth for kids and adults alike. Thrills, adventures, and whole sum fun for the entire family.

Well first off, I am an 18 years veteran of the Disney World trips and family marches, yes I have survived at least 70 trips in all. For one I reside in Florida so it is not that big of a vaunt, truly. In all my trips the best tip that I can offer anyone is this, do the Magic Kingdom park counter-clockwise. Most people have a tendency to steer to the left and you most certainly want to go right, right into Tomorrow land.

The New And Improved Fantasy Land

At Tomorrow land you will experience the Monsters Inc. Laugh off, the Buzz Lightyear toy ride, and of course the main reason anyone enters Tomorrow land, Space Mountain. The other Walt Disney World areas of Frontier land, Adventure land, Fantasy land, Main Street, and Liberty square and much more fun. Another thought might be to visit the new and improved Fantasy Land jump on the Main street train and get off in the new Fantasy Land train stop. This is good if you are traveling with small children, and want to get some great pictures with the likes of Pooh, Tigger, and Cinderella and of course Mickey Mouse and Minnie. They all reside in the great merchandise tent, pictures for everyone equals smiles for everyone. Don’t miss the Goofy Barn Storm fun roller-coaster located in Fantasy Land.

So you want to get a breakfast in with the Disney characters? Don’t make long waits at the Walt Disney World resort, the Contemporary. There is a little known secret inside the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin hotels. Character breakfast without the wait and those long incredible lines. You do not have to stay at any of these two hotels to make reservations to eat there, all you have to do is call ahead of time and make reservations, you can tell them that you want check out the hotel for a future reservation. Character at the Swan include Tigger, Pooh, Goofy, Chip and Dale and others.

The best part of staying at a Walt Disney World resort for me, is the fine bus service that is provided to you as a guest at the Disney World resorts. The buses run every 5 minutes during the day and night, and they run until the parks close, all of them. The relief is not only in the fuel department for your vehicle, but also the parking fee and the lines to catch the monorail or motor-coach. Saves time, money and that is something that everyone wants to save. Why not try to obtain a gift card for your next Disney trip right now? In the process share a story of your latest trip to the Disney.
