Years ago when I was raising my three little boys in Illinois, every year we took a trip to the Orlando, Kissimmee area in Florida.  The memories we created with our kids are ones we will never forget. Now that we live in Florida, we are frequent guests of the Walt Disney World Resorts and Parks.   I know when we have grandkids, that will be a place we will want to experience with them as well.  Now that we have the cold wintery weather, this is a great time to start planning a wonderful vacation holiday with family or just a trip for the two of you.

If you have not been to Walt Disney World in Lake Buena Vista, Florida near Orlando and Kissimmeee for awhile, now is the time to start making plans to visit again.  There are certain places you absolutely want to visit.  My favorites are visiting EPCOT and Animal Kingdom.  At Animal Kingdom, Kilimanjaro Safari is my absolute favorite.  This is the ride where you are driven around in a jeep and your tour guide will let you know about the animals that you see.  Every trip is different, we have seen so many different animals.  My favorites are the Giraffe and the Lions.

If you are not familiar with EPCOT, a large part of the park lets you view all the different countries along with the authentic food and stores like you would see.  Of course my favorite restaurant to stop at is in France.  It is more like a bakery but they have wonderful sandwiches for lunch that are quite affordable. It is called Les Halles Boulangerie & Patisserie.  They have a great ham and cheese croissant sandwich that the kids always enjoyed and I LOVE the fruit tartlets.  We also are fond of Via Napoli Ristorante and Pizzaria in Italy.  The pizza is huge!

Of course if you have little kids or grandkids, you can’t skip the Magic Kingdom.  Really the best way to learn about all the parks and the best way to experience it all, is to grab the free Disney Parks Planning CD.  Order your Free planning CD Below.

I am planning my next trip to Walt Disney World Resorts right now.  I really enjoy the Disney parks.  It really is the Happiest Place on Earth.  While there, be sure to bring with the Xe Healthy Energy Drinks.  They help me make it through the busy days.  My readers can receive a free 3 pack of these healthy drinks by clicking here.
