It’s hard to believe our week at Disney World is almost over. To say it has been fun would be an understatement…it’s been a blast! Any chance we have to spend time with our grandkids is worth everything to us, and we’ve made the most of this trip, even if it was one of the wettest trips we’ve ever been on.
The heavens opened on us most every day for hours, but with some rain gear, the fun never stopped.
One of the nicest things about staying at the Fort Wilderness (FW) campground is the ability to pop in and out of the parks during the day have some lunch, a nap or a swim in the pool to cool off.
And yes, there is a Hot Tub here! :c)
We rented a golf cart from an off site company this year and saved some serious money over a Disney golf cart rental. You don’t have to use a golf cart, but FW is so big, it helps to get around and make the most of your day.
FW is really a beautiful place. No, it’s not quiet like some real close to nature state parks in Florida, but it’s meant to have all kinds of activities for its visitors to enjoy. However, being in Florida, you do have to be careful of the alligators. They are everywhere. In fact, one took over this golf cart, don’t know how the owners are going to deal with it.
One nice thing was Andrew and Owie’s mom and dad were able to come down for the weekend and spend time with us at Disney World.
They were nice enough to share the boys with us.
The all time family favorite ride is Splash Mountain, it is a nice ride telling the story of the “Song of the South” movie combined with a log flume ride. Yes, you will get wet.
The Magic Kingdom is a very big place, easy to get lost in. Fortunately we had a good map reader to lead us around to the different rides.
In fact, Owie has been coming here now for five years and has become quite the seasoned visitor. He knows all the tricks and has found great places to relax while riding the Monorail.
One thing caught the boy’s attention,
a show at Cinderella’s Castle, starring Mickey and Minnie!
More to come, so stay tuned!
