Living with the Land at Disney’s Epcot park, Orlando

Living with the land is a boat ride. The boats are large and you are seated in rows on bench seats. The boat set off slowly and we soon found ourselves riding through different scenery with a running commentary about about past successes and failures of mankind  living off the land. We sailed through impressive…

Mother and daughter evening at Epcot’s World Showcase, Orlando

T-Rex, Disney Springs, Orlando

The Walt Disney World Railroad, Orlando

It’s the first thing you see from outside the park and the last thing you see as you leave. It’s been there forever, goes round the whole park and yet we had never been on it! We ended up with a bit of time spare between fast passes on our last visit and all the…

The Tomorrowland Transit Authority People Mover

Club Cool, Disney’s Epcot, Orlando

Not everyone knows to look out for Club Cool. From the outside it looks like another shop, which it is, but there is a difference with this shop.

Miss Adventure Falls, Typhoon Lagoon, Orlando

Today we popped over to Typhoon Lagoon to try out Miss Adventure Falls, a water slide that wasn’t here last year. The slide has a story behind it in keeping with the rest of the park. It is about Captain Mary Oceaneer and her parrot. Captain Mary was a treasure hunter and her ship, full…
