    We always go to Winter Park Farmers Market on our first Saturday morning, we then do the Winter Park Scenic Boat Tour.

    Mount Dora is lovely, so is Harry P Leu Gardens

    You could try the wine tour at Lakeridge Winery, at the end of the tour you taste a few of the wines. Then pop to TJ Maxx at Clermont

    We really enjoy walking the world showcase.

    The Segway tour was fun too!

    Visit the resorts that interest you the most.

    Ride the monorail (hey! that's not a real ride ).

    Walk from DTD to OKW and or SSR.

    Watch the movie on the beach at the Beach Club.

    Visit the boardwalk.

    Rent a surrey (but NOT at the boardwalk! ).

    Rent a pontoon boat (at DTD).

    Visit the spa.

    Enjoy the pool...






    Welcome to our new home! It's a lovely and friendly place. If you haven't joined yet, do register. It's a great place to make friends and share all those Disney secrets!!

    And what the enemy will see? They will see the flash of our cannons, and they will hear the ringing of our swords, and they will know what we can do! By the sweat of our brow and the strength of our backs and the courage in our hearts! Gentlemen, hoist the colors!
