How about the cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness resort, that one looks cool!

I rather like the cabins! The meal plan includes most of the restaurants around property, including many of the nicer ones in Epcot. (I don't know all the details. ) It includes (I believe) entree, drink and dessert- and as I recall the price was a really good deal UNLESS you just get chicken nuggets for every meal.

Hi Maggie

How wonderful that you are visiting our wonderful state. (which, by the way, is not nearly so hot as much of the rest of the country)

I live in Jacksonville, but am preparing to move to San Antonio Texas so my grandchild who is deaf can attend a wonderful school to help him communicate.

There are of course, all the regular attractions, and I am a big fan of Disneyworld,but there are a few less traveled places of worth as well. One of those very special places is Ginny Springs and it is one of Florida's best kept secrets I think. I think it is so lovely and worth the trip. It is a series of natural springs with pristine blue (cool) water. They dump out into the dark, slow moving SanteFe River,and you can got out into the river and float down and then reenter into the springs downstream. You can snorkle (fun) or scuba dive if certified. They have hot showers, many picnic areas, store, and volleyball area. It is a natural area and special to me. I have seen turtles, little fish but no alligators or snakes, although they may be there. The water is deep and the only way you know where it is deeper is that the color of the blue water deepens. AMAZING! Here is a link to the web site. sunny http://ginniespringsoutdoors.com/

If you see EPCOT, don't miss SOARI'N.

Some of the nation's prettiest beaches are in the pan handle and Destin is one of the best ones.

I do hope you enjoy your trip, and don't forget your sunblock!

Blessings for a safe trip.

Evelyn

Hi Evelyn, thank you so much for all the tips and reviews! That place sounds AMAZING!

Congratulations on your grandson getting into that wonderful school, it looks like this is the right move for you.
Best of luck!

Thank you Helena! Hey, if my diet doesn't allow me to eat the famous Mickey ice cream the lest I can do is wear the ears right? LOL

Arggg! I am so mad,
I did the 24 hr check-in and noticed all the seats are separated, HELLO!!!!! they ask you if you are travelling with children when you purchase the ticket, the least they can do is sit us all together.

I just got an email saying my flight is delayed leaving from NY, so what about my connection flight when I get to NC? Arggggg! So so so mad right now Sad

Sorry, I had to vent affraid

I second Evelyn's Destin recommendation.

Never heard of ginnysprings. I will have to look that up. Evelyn, do you know if it stays cool enough to keep the amoeba inactive? I am paranoid about swimming in freshwater bodies. Somebody seems to die every year from the amoeba and I have a suspicion that is why Disney shut down River Country years ago.

Maggie - that stinks about your flight. Maybe once you are boarding you can juggle around. People are usually pretty gracious when they see you are trying to stay next to your child.

I just read you met Linda, so you sure made it to Florida. I hope with your kids close to you in the plane. Have a great time (I don't know if you read this while in Florida...)
