    Skip the mumbo jumbo and read only the bold type if you want.
    Why not take this to the TW family?
    Information overload right now, getting ready to pull the trigger on a late May, early June Disneyworld vacation for the family. I've been researching alot and really need ya'lls help who have some Disneyworld experience. (Also plan to take my kids deep sea fishing with thier uncle for a day, he is a captain in south Florida.)

    Could you post up what attractions or rides you recommend, and maybe your favorite resort to stay at. We will stay on the Disney property for the duration of our trip. Thinking one park a day for 6 days with 1 day of rest and pool time in the middle. That would be hitting 4 theme parks and the 2 water parks. (special deal right now, buy five nights and tickets, get three nights and three days of tickets free)

    Numbered choices in your post would suffice, as I will be taking notes. Thanks in advance for the help.:cool:

    Alright, my youngest son is 8 and he's been 7 times, LOL

    This is our favorite, I don't know if the same would apply to you:

    We love the cabins at Fort Wilderness. They're a littlre more private, you get a grill on the deck, and they've got everything you'll need... but here's what you also need:

    1) RENT A GOLF CART - You have to call the bicycle barn separately. These golf carts have headlights and horns, and the kids love riding on them just as much as anything else! There are special parking lots for them... you can leave your cabin in the golf cart and drive it to the water and hop the boat to the Magic Kingdom, or you can ride it out to the Outpost bus stops. There's also a General Store in the middle of Ft. Wilderness so you can buy groceries, etc.

    2) The ONLY thing I'd do at the Ft. Wildreness (Outpost) restaurant is the Hoop-Dee-Doo musical revue - it's great - other than that, the regular meals there SUCK and they're expensive.

    ====================================

    As a family, we've been there close to 10 times. We've stayed at the Wilderness Lodge (Pretty darn cool, too - waterfall running right out of the lobby), Contemporary, Animal Kingdom Lodge (another pretty cool one), Polynesian, Key West, Swan, but when we tried the Ft. Wildreness Cabins we fell in love with it. (Not to mention that each cabin has a driveway - your taco is right there snuggled up close, LOL)

    ====================================

    Favorite Attractions :

    1) Expedition Everest (Animal Kingdom) - We were in line when that dude died so we couldn't ride it a second time.

    2) Dinosaur (Animal Kingdom)

    3) Test Track (EPCOT - "Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow"

    4) Soaring - EPCOT

    5) Aerosmith Roller Coaster - Hollywood Studios

    6) Tower of Terror - holywood Studios

    Here's some fun things to ride through - Entertaining...

    1) Pirates of the Carribean - Magic Kingdom

    2) Haunted Mansion - Magic Kingdom

    3) Splash Mountain - Magic Kingdom

    4) Runaway Railroad - Magic Kingdom

    5) Space Mountain - Magic Kingdom

    6) Turtle Talk with Crush - if you have kids this is an absolute MUST DO - EPCOT

    There's many many more. We've been addicted to going t oDisney for some time now.... LOL

    I hope that was helpful!

    HNIL & FP----don't know where ya'll are at, but we'll be driving from Disney to West Palm Beach probably down I-95. Won't have much time for delay off the course, but when I get details and times I'll put them on this thread and if its close to you I would love to spend a couple minutes talking and get a good 'ol TW handshake from ya!

    We will be flying to Orlando, driving to West Palm, then flying home from there.


    fasn8dave---tons of help there, taking notes man, thanks alot. I may be in touch once the days and resort is set. Won't need the Taco close in the driveway cause we are flying in....

    gotcha...i was 21 when i went so i had to find something to do. but we did stay at the animal kingdom lodge and it was very impressive with all the safari animals walking around outside. not sure if your kids like animals but if so they wouldnt be disappointed.
