hen you wish upon a star, where do you pretend you are? If you're like most kids, you'll probably want to be at Walt Disney World, which is exactly where I'm reporting from this time. Walt Disney World lies in the "Sunshine State" of Florida and is definitely the place to be in the winter. Besides the Magic Kingdom, Disney World also promises non-stop fun and adventure at Epcot Center, MGM Studios, and Typhoon Lagoon.
While there are many spectacular hotels inside the Disney World resort, we chose to stay at the Disney World Fort Wilderness Campground. I could have spent a week just at the campground with its warm heated pools, fantasy playgrounds, boat rentals, fishing, petting zoo and video game rooms. Adjacent to the campground is River Country. River Country is like a big swimming hole with a sandy beach, water slides carved out of rock, tube rides and lots of water play. Fort Wilderness is also the home for the
Hoop De Do Revue dinner show. You are served an all-you-can-eat scrumptious dinner of ribs, biscuits, corn on the cob, potatoes, salad and drinks while watching an entertaining and hilarious musical revue. But the best part is the strawberry shortcake!!!
