Campsite Decorations

Treky is forever complaining that other RV's are beautifully decorated and all he has is this license plate size identification in his windshield.  Tippy and I took a tour around our loop at Fort Wilderness to see if there is any truth in Treky's concern.

Our next door neighbor does have their name and home town shown on their site plus a banner or two.

Look at this campsite.  I especially like their slogan, "Living the Dream".   They have a dog and cat recognized too.  Plus Halloween is coming.

Ho!  Look at the Disney characters.

We like Mickey.

Now those decorations are scary.  Tippy thinks that it should be removed.

Tippy points out that this is Minnie Mouse - Not Mickey.

They've got it all - Look on their dashboard.

Plain but effective Halloween decoration.

Made from gallon jugs


Mickey is the most popular decoration.

These folks have one of everything.

These decorations are small but they are Tippy's favorite so far.

I like this class C decoration best.

Really cute.

After our tour, Tippy and I agree that this is not much of a decoration.

So, we bought Treky this remembrance of our trip to Fort Wilderness.  It's not an outdoor decoration but he can hang it on his rear view mirror.

This wraps up  our Fort Wilderness at Disney World adventure.  We plan to return here - maybe in December.

We will be going to Cedar Key again for Thanksgiving so that we don't eat Thanksgiving dinner alone.

Disney - The Farm

The Circle D Farm - D for Disney.  Check out the fence.

The farm is located near Trails End.  Here on the farm are big old oak trees.  Most of other parts of Fort Wilderness have cypress and pine trees.

Disney provides shelter from the sun for the horses.

A real live working blacksmith shop

This Disney horse is about to get new shoes.  If you appear interested, the blacksmith will describe what he is doing and why.

I like the multi-colored horses.  This one is colored a little like Tippy.  Look at that long mane and tail.

Of course, white horses are nice too.

Pony rides are available for children as well as riding lessons and long trail rides for adults.

Tomorrow, Tippy and I are going to checkout decorations on RV's in our loop of Fort Wilderness.

Fort Wilderness Trails End Area

Blue Skies smiling at me - Nothing but Blue Skies do I see.  Never saw the sun shining so bright - Never saw things going so right.

Tippy loves tiny flowers.

At one end of our bus line is the Outpost where we connect with other buses to everywhere at Disney.  At the other end of the bus line is Trail's End.

Tippy thinks little blue flowers are nice too.

One attraction at Trail's End is the Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue - a dinner show - mostly for kids and old people.

Shows, food and other items are expensive here at Disney World - My annual pass entitles me to 20 percent discount - see up there 20 percent AP Food = $4.40 discount.

I purchased other items and got a $6.48 discount.  I paid $260.00 for the pass.  It entitles me to admission to all four parks on weekdays only and a 20 percent discount on food and other items.  What a bargain!

There's lots of open space here too.

This is one of our busses.  They use D-50 diesel fuel - that is 50 percent of their fuel is made from discarded food items that would otherwise fill up our garbage dumps.  Disney is very environmentally conscience. 

Tomorrow, we will visit the Disney Farm.

EPCOT - China

The China pavilion is one of the largest at EPCOT and I think it's very interesting.  This is the entrance.  There were crowds like this everywhere I went today.

 There are many areas and tours of the China pavilion available.  I chose the film, Circle Vision 360.  You really need to see the film in person.  Still pictures do not do it justice.

This is the ceiling of the room where I waited for the movie to start.

A sample of the art work displayed in the waiting room.

This is part of the Great Wall of China.  The movie is shown in 360 degrees all around the room.  That's why you see dark areas around the pictures.

Modern city  -   Eight lane highways

Another city

Ancient city

Neon lights


Tapestry ?


Museum entrance - I must go back and see this.

Around the corner from the restaurant - I will eat there next time.

I wish that the pictures better represented what I saw.  

More Disney World tomorrow!

P.S.  This is the 502nd post in this series and we have had 150,000 views in the last three and a half years.
