Time to hit the Disney parks now!

Disney vacations

For those of you who know me, I don’t have kids. Because of that my Disney and theme park plans are often a bit different than those who do have little ones.

It also played a part in the type of annual Disney pass I got. Summer is just about over and the kids are going back to school. For those with kids that means only being able to do things as a family during the weekends for the most part.

But for those childless ones like myself it’s the start of the best time of year to go to all the theme parks during the week. That’s why I choose and have a Disney weekday select pass.

Hot air balloon show picture gallery of my vacation

Hot air balloon show

About a month ago I took a trip up to Vermont, something I do twice a year. It’s where I’m from so I go up to see Mom, family and friends. This time I lucked out and got there just as Stowe, Vermont was having a hot air balloon festival.

I had never been to one but always wanted to see one. So I took the opportunity to go to this one. They had 25 balloons so it was a good show. You could stand right next to them as they blew up the balloons and took off.

I would have rode on one but it cost $275.00, a bit more than I wanted to spend for a 30 minute ride. Anyways it was really cool to see them take off and I took a lot of pictures.

I also went hiking and took a gondola car up a mountain. I took pictures of all that too and made a big picture gallery for you to enjoy. Because who doesn’t love watching people’s vacation pictures! 😀

Really though, you’ll enjoy these if you like hot air balloons and outdoorsy shots. So start the slide show below and check it out. :)

To use this picture gallery, click on the first picture and the picture show will start. Click the arrow in the right bottom corner to go to the next picture. Click inside the picture at any time to exit the picture gallery. Hope you enjoy these pictures from my vacation!

Snow White and the seven dwarfs roller coaster update

One of the very last rides being made at the new Fantasyland at Disney’s Magic Kingdom is also what I think will be one of the best. The seven dwarfs roller coaster is moving along, as you can see in the above video.

I always thought that Disney should have made a Snow White and the seven dwarfs roller coaster ride years ago. The diamond mine with the carts and track was a perfect theme for a cool indoor roller coaster.

From what I can see the roller coaster will be both inside and outside. It does not have very high hills but you can see some sharp curves. I think it will be very similar in size and speed of Big Thunder Mountain railroad.

Adult Fun in Orlando

Great Food, Overflowing Drinks and Live Poker

Orlando has been heralded for its plethora of theme parks, these include the famous Walt Disney World, SeaWorld, and Universal Studios. All of the aforementioned theme parks attract many families during summer and spring break because they offer attractions that are suited for all ages. However, most bachelors and single ladies choose to go to Las Vegas or New York to find their kind of fun.

So what is it that they are looking for? If you think that Orlando is all about riding the roller coaster or playing at the shooting arcade, then you haven’t explored this city enough. There are also places in Orlando that offer attractions for the adults like live poker and other exciting games such as billiards and darts.
