Walt Disney World Florida Resident Specials

Why Disney for Florida residents?  Well, have you seen the Walt Disney World Florida resident specials that are available to you this year? Without question, Walt Disney World theme parks are the most magical of places on earth! This is probably the only attraction left in the U.S. where you can sit there and count your cash without any worries of being robbed, clubbed or mugged.  A true magical experience… A fantastic family vacation, and one that will have you making memories that will last a lifetime.

Disney’s the Magical Kingdom is offering a special for Florida Residents a 3-day pass for only $142.00, price is  good until December of 2010.  No black out dates apply, but the tickets have to be used within a 180 day period from the date of purchase.  That is why Disney, is one of the leaders in good old fashion family fun.  Where else can you enjoy three days at a theme park for that price.  Kids under the age of 9, pay only $121.00!  In addition, on my most recent trip, we added the water parks for just $20.00 per ticket.  This feature allowed you to enjoy Typhoon Lagoon, or Disney’s Blizzard Beach for 1 day each, or mix and match the water parks as you wish.

These tickets only allow entry to the same park daily, but for more money you can add the park hopper, but for this price, no hopping.  Mix and match my favorites, especially with small children in your group.  The Magic Kingdom and Hollywood studios, which was recently renamed, formerly MGM studios, seem to have the most for small children.  Even though the Magic Kingdom is the best for small children, there are some rides that will be off limits for kids measuring under 40″, but with Toon-Town, Fantasy-land, Frontier-land, and Tomorrow-land there is plenty of action for the smaller kids.  One of the favorites is most certainly the Buzz Lightyear toy ride, you may want to get the fast pass for this one, in the Summer ride lines can reach 90 minutes, ouch!

Disney’s Tommorrow-land features the very popular Buzz Lightyear from space command ride, in which you and Buzz are off to defeat the Emperor Zurg and anything else that stands in your way. The ride keeps an electronic score of your shooting expertise and with two guns per seating arrangment, the competition is on.  The middle console gets to steer in everyway left, right and round and round.  Loads of fun for everyone.  Take advantage of this special offer made possible by the Walt Disney World if you are a Florida resident, and take off for family wholesome fun, like no other.

The Disneyworld Cruiselines

Having taken many, many, Disneyworld vacations, and wanting more Disney, I was left with the last alternative to Walt Disney World.  A Disneyworld Cruise. For kids from tiny babies up to teenagers, the Disney Cruise holds an appeal that is extra ordinary. While the Cruise is great for the kids, I am here to tell you that you parents will have a great time too. While many adults would prefer to go on a relaxing cruise vacation, this Cruise has so many activities for the kids, that I got as much rest as I have ever had on a cruise.

Lets face it, Disney is a clever company and they have managed to provide both parents and children with a vacation or holiday cruise of their dreams.  The Disneyworld cruise combines the magical world of Disney characters with a luxurious vacation cruise. Their  cruise offers families the best of both worlds and ensure that all of the members of the family have a cruise they never will forget.  This vacation offers different breaks from 3 to 7 nights in duration, and they travel to one of their landing spots or stops called Castaway Cay, regardless of the stay you choose, Castaway Cay is on the menu, and so are the Lobster burgers.

I took the shorter 4 night cruise, which takes in the Bahamas and call into port at Nassau and Disney’s own private island, Castaway Cay.  I was left wanting for more, and so were my kids.  Disney offers a whole host of activities available for all the whole family.  Activity groups are provided for children all the way through the teenager years, and these groups are divided into ages so that you can be sure the activities will entertain your child, whatever their age and keep him or her in their respective groups.

These Disneyworld cruises even offer their own club for adults, which will allow you to spend some quality time away from the children while remaining confident in knowing that they are being cared for by their fully qualified staff.  Activities available just for the adults include a spa and salon, nightclub and adult-only restaurant, and also a Bingo game. Their  Live entertainment is provided daily, beginning with a Welcome Aboard show and ending your cruise with a Magical Farewell.  All shows are Broadway quality shows and touched us in so many ways.

Now the Disneyworld Cruise would not have the Disney touch without its characters, Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald Duck, and the rest of the gang as they are all on board, get your cameras ready, around every corner lies a photo op. Disney offers an exciting variety of menus and world cuisine on their cruises.  This gives everyone a real opportunity to try something new and the exceptional chefs on board will ensure that it is all prepared to the highest standard and your liking.  Which of course will be!  With so many adventures, the days are sure to pass quickly and before you know it, the day is done and so is the cruise.

I must say that the Disney touch with the cruise, was just what we my family needed.  Take one now and I guarantee it will be your vacation of a lifetime, and a trip that your family will treasure for a lifetime.
