Disney adventure

It was a long weekend here in US last week as they celebrate labour day on first monday of september. I decided to drive to Orlando to visit world's happiest celebration on earth, Disney world. Booked Hopper ticket for visiting for theme parks ( Disney-MGM Studio, Disney EPCOT, Disney Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom).
monorail system
It's a heaven of 48000 acres interconnected by monorail system, disney shuttles and even a ferry with few stops.

I started with Disney-MGM Studio and clicked pics with few of disney characters.
Lights, Motors, Action! was the extreme Stunt Show "gifted" from Walt Disney Studios Paris features the bombastic best of the movie industry's stunt masters. But nothing to compare with Universal studios, CA.

Same day afternoon,i hit Disney EPCOT which is Walt Disney's dream of the Experimental Prototype Community Of Tomorrow.

Next day morning, it was the main attraction, "Disney Magic Kingdom".
"Cinderellabration," an enchanting musical spectacular direct from Tokyo Disneyland Park which is performed on the castle stage, containing "happily-ever-after" story of Cinderella with elaborate costumes and a host of favorite characters that bring to life the coronation of this favorite Disney princess. The castle on the entrance is really kool. check out their pics on my Canon Digital Powershot G3.

Disney was always with technology alignment and no wonder they introduced the Mono rail system in early 70s and rebuilt it in 90s.Mono rail Pic. Interested in knowing about this great visionary, check it out. Also check his Pic with his partner in the entrance.i clicked this dude in the castle shopping center with lot of tatoos and he was really having keen look on those swords.

Next hit was Disney Animal Kingdom which is certainly not a traditional zoo. it is spread around in 500 acres with 2500 species of animals & 2 million herb, plants, grass and trees. Worth visiting this place and it has asian/african/dino section.
asian safari section brings back the exotic settings of "Anandpur" with temple ruins and Chakranadhi river rafting. If you are at this place on sunday, dont miss the parade of disney characters.

Good hotels at around $50 per night are near to disney. There is a indian punjabi restaurant on I-592 W which is 7 miles from disney. Only problem with orlando,FL is you never knew when it will rain or hit by storms. most of the time on the way back to ft.lauderdale, all vehicles were moving with blinkers on as heavy rain hits on every alternative mile.
