The Ultimate Disney Vacation Guide

Jun 25, 2008
Whether you plan on going with your significant other or have children in tow, wonder awaits as you make your way to sunny Orlando, Florida, USA, for a Disney World vacation. There is surely something that will appeal to children and adults of all ages at one of the four Disney World theme parks. Here is a brief overview of each one.

No trip to Disney World would be complete without a visit to the Magic Kingdom. You could easily spend more than a day visiting its five different lands: Tomorrowland, Frontierland, Adventureland, Fantasyland and Liberty Square. You will be in awe of the network of underground tunnels that connect all of the sections of the Magic Kingdom. Here are some attractions that you will not want to miss no matter what age you may be: Splash Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, Haunted Mansion and the Jungle Cruise. Space Mountain is still a great attraction. Don't forget the parades and fireworks that are sure to take your breath away!

Epcot Center came on the Disney World scene in 1982. In times past, it was considered to be an adult park, but even now the kids that walk through this theme park can have a blast. One of the things that cater to the youngsters are the kidcot stations that you can find at every venue. Children are able to create free souvenirs to take home with them. You can also find Disney characters throughout Epcot Center. This theme park consists of two main areas, World Showcase and Future World. Spaceship Earth traces the history of communication.

You will surely want to go on Soarin, the most popular ride in Epcot. If you enjoyed The Lion King, you are certain to enjoy the Circle of Life film that is hosted by Simba, Timon and Pumba. You can actually take a boat ride which will give you a tour of fish production and greenhouses. To round out your stay at Epcot Center, be sure to visit the 5.7 million gallon aquarium which houses sea turtles, sharks, dolphins and all sorts of other fish. If you want to squeeze in one last attraction, you will want to see IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth.

The third theme park to visit in Disney World is Disney's Hollywood Studios. It officially opened on May 1, 1989, just beating out Universal Studios which opened the very next year. At the time that this theme park opened, the only attractions were The Backlot Tour, Great Movie Ride, Sounds Dangerous and the Magic of Disney Animation. Later that year Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular was added as an attraction. The very next year Sorcery in the Sky, an evening fireworks show made its debut. In 1994, Twilight Zone Tower of Terror made its mark on this theme park.

Be sure to go on the Rock n Roll Coaster, another attraction that was added in 1999. If you like live performances, you will not want to miss the stage show Beauty and the Beast. The one downer to this theme park is that many of the attractions and shows are a bit long and will make some of the kids squirm in their seats adults included.

The newest theme park to hit Disney World was Disney's Animal Kingdom which opened on April 22, 1998. This park consists of 500 acres and is home to approximately 1,700 animals that represent about 250 different species. You will not want to miss riding on the Kilimanjaro Safari which will take you through the African Savannah. However, you will probably be traveling too fast to be able to get any really good pictures of the animals. There you have it a bird's eye view of Disney World. With a little forethought and planning, this could possibly be your best Disney vacation ever.
