A good friend and I rented a car and made a trip to the south of Florida, including Miami Beach, Key West, Fort Meyers, Everglades and St. Peterburg.
Four days on board of the Disney Wonder, cruising around the Bahamas, with an afternoon on Paradise Beach, a night out in Nassau and a full day on Castaway Cay, the private island of the Disney Inc. Really a nice way to start travelling around Florida!
Castaway Cay is a private island or “out island” in the Bahamas which serves as an exclusive port for the Disney Cruise Line ships Disney Wonder and Disney Magic. It is located at 26°05′N 77°32′W near Great Abaco Island, and was formerly known as Gorda Cay. It is owned in full by The Walt Disney Company, giving them substantial control over the experience of visitors to the island. A post office on the island has special Bahamian postage specific to Disney Cruise Line, and a “Castaway Cay” postmark.
Magic Kingdom is fine if you are with your kids but you can skip it if you have been to Eurodisney. The only thing they don’t have their is Splash Mountain. MGM is for moviebuffs, since it offers lots of probs from films and the Indiana Jones Stundshow is worth watching.
The “Animal Kingdom” ranks as my favourite Disneyparks out of all four Disneyworld themeparks. There is a lot to see, the attraction don’t get stuck all the time and there is plenty of usefull informations even for adults
Epcot Center is very interresting, the rides are quiet old, expect the Crash-Test Dummie Race, but the different countries are very entertaining to visit, and don’t miss the movies about Canada, China and France, they are fantastic.
