With a recent string of chilly nights (and days) in Orlando, it may be difficult to think about being outside, let alone enjoying your back yard. But that's exactly what Walt Disney World gardeners have been doing. Plans for the 2015 Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival have been in the works since last year's edition ended. The Flower and Garden Festival begins March 4 - just a little more than two weeks away!

Florida might be a subtropical paradise, but it does get cold here at times, as this week's front proves.

January 27, 2015
I stood in line for lunch at Be Our Guest Restaurant in Magic Kingdom's Fantasyland. You guessed it: I waited quite a while in that line, but I did enjoy studying the impressive details around the Beast's Castle. What do you think about this image in the rock wall? It's on the back of the partial wall behind the check-in station, on the left side just as you walk onto the entrance bridge toward the restaurant. Do the three circles make a Hidden Mickey?

 

Seniors View of Walt Disney WorldSeniors View of Walt Disney World
January 27, 2015
I've been reading touring plans, guide books and online reports, and found a lack of reports from seniors. I know that there are a lot of "us" out there who love going to Disney no matter what our age! We love the magic of it all and that we can be "10-year-olds" again the minute we step into Walt Disney World.

It is different for us, though. We are not able to walk as fast or do as much all at once as we once were -- but in no way does that stop us from enjoying Walt Disney World! In fact, now we try to go to WDW every year, and we will be going again in less than two weeks.

The 20th Anniversary of Walt Disney WorldThe 20th Anniversary of Walt Disney World
January 07, 2015
Starting October 1, 1991, Walt Disney World promised a "Year of Surprises" to celebrate its 20th anniversary. In fact, Roger Rabbit would often "surprise" guests throughout the three Disney Florida parks during the day with 20th anniversary themed prizes and honors, sometimes even during a live show.

Like many of the early anniversary celebrations, this one lasted beyond 12 months. It lasted 15 months, with plenty of opportunities to enjoy the "20 New Reasons to Visit Walt Disney World," including the addition of beloved Minnie Moo at Grandma Duck's Petting Farm in the Magic Kingdom.
