Fun at Walt Disney World!

Last week our daughter, Dawn, son-in-law, Mike, and oldest grandson, Jacob, came for a visit.  We started our vacation at Walt Disney World in Orlando and had a wonderful time.

We moved our 5th wheel from the RV park in Juno Beach to Disney's Fort Wilderness Campground.  It was the nicest campground we've ever been to!

Vehicle traffic is not allowed unless you're entering or leaving the area.  They have free bus transportation around the campground, and to their parks, but we decided to rent a golf cart.  We had some wild rides!

One of the rides Jacob enjoyed the most was the pony rides - riding every pony they had saddled.

We all enjoyed the pool.  Each one of us slid down the fast winding slide many many times.

We also enjoyed the simpler pleasures the campground had to offer.

One of the amenities was free boat rides to the other resorts and, most importantly, the Magic Kingdom.

Jacob always visits his friends whenever he's in town.

But even friends take a backseat to the thrilling rides!

Yes.  He LOVED Space Mountain.

Even good boys need a little "time out."

However, Disney wasn't the only place that got our money. 

We had a rousing good time at Medieval Times where we stuffed ourselves with food while watching knights joust.

We finished up the vacation back at Juno Beach.  Now, they've gone back to Phoenix and we're preparing for yet another visitor.  On Saturday, my nephew is coming from Iowa for a week.  What new adventures await him?!
