"tourism big time" Orlando by iaint

Orlando Travel Guide: 3,109 reviews and 5,931 photos

we came, we saw...

Took my 7 year old son to Florida for the Disney etc experience.

We'd been to Eurodisney the year before, so we were pretty sophisticated consumers...

I suppose it has to be seen to believed. A single purpose town.

In some ways its impressive. In others its depressing.

and so...

We did the usual stuff. Several Disney sites plus Seaworld. I think we had only a week in total, so we tried to alternate busy (tough) days with easier ones involving pool.

Stayed at one of the Disney hotels. Travelled out with Sabena and the US Airways. Back with Swissair.

verdict

I'm glad we went, but I'm in no rush to go back. At my age, not surprising. More interesting is that Junior would not rush back either. I think he was too sophisticated, even at that age!
