Plan Your Walt Disney World Orlando Vacation

Mickey Mouse. Tinker Bell. Cinderella. What would childhood be like without the magic of Disney? When kids and adults want to go to the theme park, they're heading to Disney. Here you're walking amid people from around the world and meeting characters like Snow White and Donald Duck while rides whirl nonstop and the irrepressible "it's a small world" tune and lyrics run through

your head. You can't help but believe dreams really do come true here.

Top Reasons To Go

  1. Nostalgia Face it—Mickey and Company are old friends. And you probably have childhood pictures of yourself in front of Cinderella Castle. Even if you don't, nobody does yesteryear better head to Main Street, U.S.A, or Hollywood Boulevard and see.
  2. Memories in the Making Who doesn't want to snap photos of Sis on the Dumbo ride or of Junior after his Splash Mountain experience? The urge to pass that Disney nostalgia on to the next generation is strong.
  3. The Thrills For some this means roller coasting to an Aerosmith soundtrack or simulating space flight; for others it's about cascading down a waterslide or going on safari.
  4. The Chills If the Pirates of the Caribbean cave doesn't give you goose bumps, try the Haunted Mansion or Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.
  5. The Spectacle The list is long—fireworks, laser-light displays, arcade games, parades . . .
