Our Disney Experience

While we were in Orlando we contemplated going to Disney, but it is just so expensive. We asked Marcus and Caroline what they wanted to see. Caroline wanted to go to Sea World and Marcus wanted to go to Legoland, but we had visited both of those parks last year so Marc and I over ruled. I decided to look up and see what was going on at Disney while we were in the area. I ran across information on homeschooling classes at Disney. If you register for an hour long class you can purchase tickets to the parks at a discounted rate. So the child in me won out and purchased the tickets.

We stayed at the Fort Wilderness Campground, part of the Disney parks. We used the buses and boats provided to travel to and from the parks. It was a beautiful campground with many activities of it’s own. The pool and the water slide were a definite favorite. We also went to a sing along and campfire with Chip and Dale.

Our first stop was the Magic Kingdom which was beautifully decorated for Halloween. Caroline loved It’s a Small World and Space Mountain. Marcus enjoyed the run away train ride and the train ride around the Magic Kingdom. We also stopped by to say hi to Mickey and joined a street parade! We found the brick I had gotten Marc for a wedding present.

Our next park was Hollywood Studios. Marcus loved Star Tours and learned how to be Jedi. Cali joined some dancers and loved the Toy Story Ride. We all saw Indiana Jones and learned how to draw Goofy. The Rockin Roller Coast was awesome and we came back after dark for Fantasmic!

There is so much to do and see at Epcot. We went on Mission Space at least half a dozen times. The Sum of All Thrills was great. You design a roller coast, get to ride on it through the magic of Disney and they calculate how thrilling your coaster is. We had lunch at the Coral Reef restaurant and went on Soarin. Before our second visit we made passports. We learned about the countries we would be visiting in the World Showcase and where they are located. We spent a whole day going from county to county having our books signed in each country’s native language and asking questions such as what the capital is, what type of money do you use and what is your national holiday? We even sampled some food from the different countries.

On our last day we attended a class given by Disney at Animal Kingdom. It was all about primates. They gave us a beautiful book about the movie Chimpanzee. Two speakers gave presentations. One talked about primates in the wild and the other spoke about primates in captivity and at the end they answered questions about both. If you ever have a chance look up the home school classes offered on the Disney web site. My favorite show was the Lion King at Animal Kingdom. We all braved Mount Everest and it was neat to see all the animals on the safari ride.
