Stowe, Vermont pictures of Mount Mansfield

Hey everyone! Where does someone who lives in Orlando go on their summer vacation? Well in my case it was back up to my home state of Vermont! I’ve been gone for a week and just got back.

It was nice up there, great weather. I spent time seeing all the family and so on, checking out the places I use to go to and all that. This time I did something special however.

In Stowe, Vermont is Mount Mansfield. It’s the highest peak in the state and where the best Vermont skiing is. They have a huge ski lodge at the base of it that also is a hotel.

Disney’s Pleasure Island makeover stalled again

Downtown Disney pleasure island makeover stalled

For many locals here in Orlando, Disney’s Pleasure Island used to be a great place to go for late night adult entertainment. They had several cool nightclubs to go to and good restaurants.

Mannequins nightclub (not sure if I spelled that right) was very cool with live dancers, two floors and a revolving dance floor. When I worked 3rd shift at Disney I use to go there before my shift and hang out a lot.

Disney closed Pleasure Island a few years ago, the reason they gave was that is was not making enough and it did not fit their family friendly theme. Actually they closed the clubs; you can still walk through the area and a few small shops are still open.

Disney's great movie ride at Hollywood Studios review

The Great Movie Ride is located on Hollywood Boulevard in Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park. The attraction is for all ages, with no height requirements, although some of the action might be too intense for small children. It’s an indoor attraction that explores the history of movies and Tinsel Town.

The attraction begins as guests enter a life-size model of the famous Grauman’s Chinese Theater. In the lobby, you’ll be able to view the actual props and costumes from famous movies.

These might include a dress from Shakespeare in Love, the ruby slippers from The Wizard of Oz, Indiana Jones’ machete, or a carousel horse from Mary Poppins.
