Disney World–The End

3174416000031577740000Maybe a little too much time with Mickey Mouse.  Two weeks in Disney World was just a bit of overkill.  The Disney parks, Animal Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and Magic Kingdom, are all imaginative and fun; but too much of the world at large knows about this place.  It is crowded.  We thought after the holidays it would calm down and about halfway through our stay it did reduce some.  Neither of us do well in crowds.

But, the visit was not without smiles.  Disney makes the whole package, not just a roller coaster ride.  For example, when you walk to the Mt. Everest roller coaster ride, the park takes on a Nepal look with prayer flags whipping in the breeze and Yeti sightings.  Remember when Indiana Jones finds Miriam in the remote tavern in the movie, “Raiders of the Lost Ark”?  It looks like that.   It really is a hoot.

Mike is the dude in the back seat in the Splash Mountain ride.  And that is us above, in the Test Car ride at Epcot.  Yeah, we had fun.


  1. He looks like he enjoys roller coasters. Someday I will get to experience Disney World.

    1. We really enjoyed Disney World, but the best times were definitely non-holiday times (TWO weeks after Christmas) and avoid week-end holidays (like Martin Luther King day) and never, ever on spring break. And arrive at opening--first two hours are great!
