Vacations in Disney WorldFlorida’s Disney World is one of the vacation destinations that every parent desires to take their children to for vacations. This is because the one of a kind establishment has consolidated various facilities that make it ideal for vacations. This year, I was privileged to make this dream a reality for my teenage son and daughter albeit, after years of planning. As a single mother, I have learnt to incorporate my children when planning for vacations to ensure that we all have a great time. After spending hours upon hours on the internet, were able to not only identify a hotel where we would stay during our vacations in Disney World but also developed a comprehensive seven day itinerary.

Out of the numerous accommodation options, we settled for the Contemporary resort because of its proximity to the Magic Kingdom as well as many other attractions. Our theme park view room was a great bet even though we were later upgraded to another spectacular suite that had a dining area, living room kitchen, two bathrooms and a bedroom. My children and I enjoyed the magnificent panoramic view of the magic kingdom, the grand Floridian, the Polynesian and the Seven Seas Lagoon. We also had impressive views of the pool area and the Bay Lake where the eclectic water show takes place every night. We had also made arrangements to have breakfast at the hotel but had other meals at the various restaurants within Disney World. The dining area was themed with Disney characters and it took quite a while before the children could get used to it as they kept on hugging the characters each time they saw them.

As I have indicated above, you can do so much in Disney World. We visited as many places as we could effectively making the most of our vacation in Disney World. Epcot is an interesting place that showcases a range of cultures drawn from different parts of the world. This is one of the places that you must visit, as you will also have the opportunity to taste different cuisines. Epcot has two sections namely the world showcase that comprises 11 pavilions that are representative of 11 nations and the future world whose pavilions are dedicated to energy, technology, space, imagination and environment among others. The iconic geosphere that is also referred to as the Spaceship earth is something that you must not miss while here.

We enjoyed the Living with the Land boat ride at Epcot that is not only entertaining but also educational. The ride goes through a greenhouse that is indoors giving you an opportunity to learn about the different ways of growing crops as well as raising fish in harsh environments. Another notable attraction within Epcot is the Illuminations that is a combination of fireworks, laser and water show that got us all excited. Equally exciting at Epcot is the spaceship earth that gets better as you continue riding and the Kim Possible that sends you on a mission to a different country to save the world.

Equally exciting is the Magic Kingdom that boasts of seven lands that are themed that include Tomorrowland, Liberty square, Fantasyland, Frontierland, Main Street USA, Adventureland and Mickey’s Toontown Fair that is a great attraction especially for kids. This is because they can get to see Minnie’s kitchen and Mickey’s bedroom that are interactive thus by the mere push of a button the microwave can pop corn while utensils dance. I highly recommend this park to everyone including adults. Other attractions that you must check out at the magic kingdom include Carousel of Progress that is a classic Disney attraction that also offers a cool nice break, the Haunted mission that is fabulous, Pirates of the Caribbean that inspired the movie and It’s a small World ride that is ideal for all ages.

World of Disney is a great place for all your shopping needs while in Disney World. This place is awesome and is also the biggest Disney store in the World you can be sure to find just about anything that you can think of here from clothes to toys among other things. It is worth checking out.  The Kilimanjaro Safari in the Animal kingdom is amazing experience that you need not to miss as it will make you have an actual feel of the African Savannah. To enjoy this safari best, you need to embark on it early morning because the animals are usually more active at this time.  

Your vacations in Disney World cannot be complete without a visit to the Disney studios in Hollywood where you will not only get a tour of the studios but also have an opportunity to enjoy video games with your children at Toy Story Midway Mania. Even then, you need to understand that this attraction usually has many people flocking here thus you ay spent some time on the queue but the experience is worth the while. While here you can also catch Fantasmic, a terrific show that includes characters, fireworks and water featuring a battle between the heroes and evil Disney characters. You will do well to include the Fantasmic dining package because you will get priority seating. Moreover, the food is awesome. You can also ride the Rock n Roller Coaster that will take your breath away.

A walk down hidden pathways surrounding the tree of life in the Animal Kingdom is a secret discovery that allows you to gaze at the beauty and peacefulness of the animals as at a closer range. Interestingly, many people tend to overlook this trail as they transition to the next attraction. For some aqua fun, we went to the themed Blizzard Beach water park that offers so much more than just an opportunity to play in the water. This is also a great picnic location complete with tables and chairs. Another amazing attraction is the talking drinking fountain and trash cans that are particularly tempting to the children. During our vacation in Disney World, everyday was an opportunity for adventure and fun that we felt like our seven days had been shortened. Disney World has so much to offer and I highly recommend it to you for your next vacation.
