For the last 20 years we’ve been a Disney family. We have loved traveling to “the World”, Disneyland, and Disney Cruises at least a couple of times a year.
It’s become a running joke for us when we visit places around the world we comment on how much “they are like Disney”. For example,
– When we visited Yellowstone National Park, it felt like the Disney Wilderness Lodge. They even have a geyser there!
– When we went to Paris…it felt like Epcot’s France pavilion. When the kids were young we posted a Christmas card photo from Epcot in Florida Disney World with the Eiffel Tower in the background. We had people comment that it was so great to travel with our kids around the world when they are so young. Well it was…just a bit easier due to being in Florida!
Disney is art imitating the world…and it’s so realistic that actually visiting those places “feels like Disney.”
Well Disney World is a lot like traveling all around the world but with the convenience of staying in the US, having a lot shorter plane ride, and not spending as much to do it.
So the question is “Why travel anywhere else?”
At least if you have a limited budget…skip the trip to Europe, Japan, China, Germany, Mexico, Morocco, Italy, Norway, England, Canada, etc. and visit the Epcot World Showcase at Disney World. The buildings are amazing, the foods are authentic, and they even employ people from the original countries that speak the language. Take the time to enjoy the restaurants and shop for the full experience.
These videos express the comedy in this situation…
In Venice…”But they have that at Epcot”
In Paris…”This is so cool, but it’s cooler at Epcot.”
Here are some shots of Venice from Epcot in Orlando, Florida…
and Paris at Epcot in Orlando, Florida…
