Walt Disney World

My wife and I will be taking 2 small children to Walt Disney World in Florida in 2 weeks. I get to go as a bonus thru my work. We are staying at the Hilton. My question is what is the weather like down there in January? Any good ideas on what to see and do with twins that are 2 years old? I am kind of looking forward to it. A chance to get out of Iowa in January. Oh well, enought blabbing. Any responses are greatly appreciated.

Wife and I are going down with our 3 kids (ages 6, 11, and 15) and with her parents and sister's kids (ages 8, 9, and 16). We are driving down in June and camping at Disney. We have been to Florida 3 times since 2002 but never been to the Disney parks as of yet. We went to Universal Studios twice and Universal Studios: Islands of Adventure twice. I really liked the Universal parks but am looking forward to checking out the Disney ones finally. I will have to check out the forums that were posted in this thread. Seems to be lots of great info.

Oh, and I think we got the 4 day package. So, we should be able to see a lot of it. Gonna be worn out by the end of that, tough.

Oh contraire, we went for 8 days and didn't get to see or do everything we would've liked. Animal Kingdom was easy to do in one day, but the rest you really need to plan out to get alot done in one day. Good luck though.

You will barely scratch the surface.....but I will give you this one tip. When you go to EPCOT the one ride besides Test Track and Mission:Space that you need to ride is Soaring!.....and whatever you do try to get seated in either the top rows or middle rows. In order to do that you have to be in the 1st or second group.

If you are camping at Fort Wilderness, make sure to leave one evening for Chip N Dales Campfire Sing Along. You can roats hot dogs and marshmallows, then sit around and watch a couple of Disney movies on an outdoor screen. Lame as it may sound, it is actually pretty relaxing...especially after a day at the parks.

I have a million tips but www.wdwinfo.com is the place to check out. I really need to send them an e-mail to ask for a referral fee for all the people I have sent to that website.

Can anyone recommend a good golf course down there?
Any of the Disney courses are fun to play, but you most any of the courses are great. They all have to be to compete with the resort courses.

The only thing i don't like about staying off property is the inconvenience of shuttling back and forth to the parks. You are never really "close" as you might think...and staying on property has conveniences that I enjoy. But I realize that not all people are Disney fanatics like me.

I can't remember that one ride in Disney, but it has something to do with car testing, and they seat you in a ride, and give you an example of what it does and all that.

Pretty fun and thrilling. Another one was the Space Mountain. Expedition Everest is awesome.

Test Track. Also, make sure to stick around Epcot for the fireworks extravaganza, Illuminations: Reflections of Earth. Man I hope I can some day afford to go again.

LOL, we planned our trip last year without the knowledge of when Gay Days was. Luckily, our first day was the day after gay days ended.

sure would have been nice to know. It sucks. That article doesn't make me feel any better either.

Why Disney World anyway?

If I had extra money, I'd prefer to stay on property. But, renting 2 rooms - can't seem to find one room large enough to handle 6 (3 under 3) - saves me $130/night.
