On Sunday I will do something I haven’t done since I was a little kid: Hang out with Mickey Mouse at two of Disney’s parks in Orlando. Riding Splash Mountain at Magic Kingdom is high on my list, as well as visiting all or most of the countries at Epcot with some friends, grabbing a few drinks along the way.
The next day I will get to cross a line off my bucket list (weather permitting): Take a ride in a hot-air balloon. Orlando is very flat and spread out, so I’m really looking forward to getting a view from above, to be able to grasp the layout/geography of the places I’ve been the previous few days (not to mention the experience of riding in that small basket).
Coverage on these events and more from Orlando to roll out beginning next week.
