To me there is nothing more exciting and fun than Walt Disney World. I love all 4 parks, but if I HAD to make a choice, it would have to be Epcot. Epcot's World Showcase has the coolest fireworks event with Illuminations: Reflections of Earth. The entertainment is great. My favorites are Off Kilter in Canada Voices of Liberty in America and Mo'Rockin' in Morocco. Throughout the day there are lots of street acts, too. And the variety of food is almost unlimited. Plus, Epcot is the home of the Food and Wine Festival when even more events take place.
Don't get me wrong, I love the other parks and a trip to WDW wouldn't be complete without seeing Mickey and friends at the Magic Kingdom. But Epcot always has something new to see in entertainment.
This year is great for the history buffs in my hometown too! The children's museum here in Indianapolis has the Warriors of China that somehow has ties to the University here. It is something that you must not let your children miss while it is here from China.
I loved the Treasure Island area in Anaheim. You go from the ship to the an actual Island and it is all real trees and foliage. The kids I went with loved it and the adults that were with us could actually have a mixed tropical drink back in the day. I'm sure it has changed by now. They don't allow alcohol at any of the parks now, right?
Yes off site hotels or motels even just 30 miles away are much less expensive. If you plan on packing up each day you might get to see more of the area if you sight see around a little. I just can't afford $180 a night no matter how great it is!
Sorry, that is an old web site I use to have setup that you could plan your travels to Orlando, over the years I have scaled back on the sites I manage. I saw that you have a link to the Children's Museum of Indianapolis IN in your profile. We plan to make a day trip up there with the kids (we are in So Indiana). Feel free to post any info about it under the "outside the gates" forum. There are a few nice attractions in the IN-KY-OH area.
Indianapolis would be a great place for another WDW park. Just think how much business they'd get in May when they have the 500 race! The Superbowl is coming in 2012 there. Well, unless the strike is still on! I think Washington DC would have been a great place for them too. Get burned out on the Political Memorials and take a ride on the real rollercoasters. I haven't heard there will be another park built in America but I plan on seeing the one in Florida soon.
Wow Jason I can't get that site to load. I am planning on going to Florida to take the g'babies to Disney World this year and I have never been to Florida! I went to the Disney World in Anaheim as a teenager and thought it was a gas!

Hi, Depending on the menu (they definitley vary from restaurant to restaurant) you should be ok...but we tried to make sure we chose buffet meals when we could for two reasons. 1) the amount of food and selection would be easier ( at a bufet there are "children's" selections but they can chose from the whole buffet; they are not restricted to any specific choices) and 2) most buffets are with characters. Hope this helps Disney Dad
