Walt Disney World…An Experience for All Ages
Over the last 4 decades, Walt Disney World has evolved to be a vacation spot for the young and the young at heart. The home to four theme parks, two water parks, and the Downtown Disney Area, Walt Disney World offers more than just classic rides and characters. It has become known for 5-star restaurants, state-of-the-art experiences, and of course…a place where dreams come true.
While we believe one is never too young or too old to visit the Happiest Place on Earth, many parents struggle with what the appropriate age is for children to visit Walt Disney World. For families with young children, we recommend Magic Kingdom, the original park of Walt Disney World. Magic Kingdom is the largest of the four parks and is home to the classics such as “it’s a small world”, Peter Pan’s Flight, the Jungle Cruise, Pirates of the Caribbean, and the infamous flying Dumbo Ride. The recent expansion of New Fantasyland, now makes Magic Kingdom the only Disney park to house 3 castles…Cinderella’s Castle, The Beast’s Castle, and Prince Eric’s Castle.
Not to be over shadowed by all the pixie dust, Magic Kingdom is the dream of Mr. Walt Disney…the iconic park of where it all started in Orlando, Florida. For those looking to experience the history of Disney and no longer take part in the hustle and bustle, there is no better place to start than with a stroll down Main Street USA.
Take one step through the doors of Epcot and enter a world where technology and the future unite with a trip around the world. Known as the park for the young adult or more seasoned traveler, Epcot’s World Showcase immerses you into the cultures of 9 different countries. Experience unique cuisines, learn foreign languages, and see how it truly is a small world after all as you make your way around World Showcase.
Become part of the action as you enter Disney’s Hollywood Studios…the park devoted to movies, television, music and theater. See the stars of Disney Junior Live, how special effects come to be on the big screen, and take a look at how movies have evolved through the decades. No other park offers fast-paced rides, Broadway performances and stunt shows…something for the whole family. And for the true Disney aficionado, you will not want to miss One Man’s Dream…a tribute to the man himself, Mr. Disney.
The newest of the four theme parks, Disney’s Animal Kingdom has an adventure waiting for you! Take an African Safari, explore the seas with Nemo and Dori, see just how tough a bug’s life really is…this park embraces the Circle of Life.
For families looking for the high-speed, fast-paced, thrill rides, each park has something in store for you! From Test Track at Epcot to Expedition Everest at Animal Kingdom, and Space Mountain at Magic Kingdom to Aerosmith’s Rock ‘N Roller Coaster at Hollywood Studios, your tween will surely conquer their need for speed.
Looking beyond the theme parks, there are activities for all ages as well! Whether taking a plunge down Brave Summit Plummet at Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park, soaking up the rays at Disney’s Typhoon lagoon, or shopping until you drop at the World’s Largest Disney Store at Downtown Disney, there is something for everyone.
