If you are not familiar: Disney World is the theme park that includes many rides based on Disney cartoons and characters. (Space Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, the Hall of Presidents, and more.) Epcot Center is the park with the science, technology, and innovation exhibits along with the International Village featuring dining, gifts, and exploration of cultures from around the world. Hollywood Studios has rides and attractions based on many different movies, special effects, and shows. Disney’s Animal Kingdom features rides, shows, and lots of different animals in natural settings.
This trip is intended for adults only, and we are limiting the age to over 21 only. If you have not been to any of these properties, you will be pleased to note that there are MANY places to sit down, everything is easily accessible, and there are LOTS of places to grab a drink, snack, eat, and simply enjoy the scenery. This should be considered a low to moderate activity level tour. You should be able to walk unassisted, and able to navigate steps as needed for boarding the bus and in other public spaces.
