"The Mighty GMC"

Only advice I can add to the above is to find out when they are offering the Florida residents specials.

These are what are considered Disney slower periods.

Even though you wont get the same break on price, you will not have to deal with the crowds during the Peak times.

And remember, Disneys idea of "Its SLOW today" and mine are vastly different.

We went at the beginning of January and walked onto all but the most popular rides, get the 'Fast Pass" and come back in your time window with limited waiting.

Staying at Fort Wilderness is a good idea, If you don't leave the Disney property they have transportation to take you everywhere, and its included.

Enjoy your stay,



1975 GMC  P8M4905A-1160    North Central Florida

Fort Wilderness

We stayed there in December - BEFORE the rates went to $96 per night !!

I did struggle and was very careful maneuvering our 45' in the campground.  It is tight.

A trick for Epcot.  Start at the far end in the countries, and work back to minimize the crowds.

That's great Barn Owl, we'll look forward to hearing from you.
We try to go the second weekend in Sept. They have a Christian Festival called Night of Joy we like to go to, and it seems after Labor Day Weekend, the rates are lower and it's not so crowded. What month are you thinking of going? As of right now, the only time for sure I'll be tied up is Oct. 8 - 12th.
Don't forget to reserve a Golf Cart for some of the time you'll be camping.
Bikes are great too, if you are able to bring some. And did you read earlier in this blog what I wrote about Ohana's Restaurant? It's awesome!!!

Hey, a few weeks ago we tried out a new place in Williston, near some family,
and we ended up being parked right next to a retired Feeder Driver from Indiana...what are the odds of that happening? And you know, whenever you hook up with a fellow UPSer, there are always stories to tell, ha ha.

Well, take care, and let us know when you are heading our way.
