Tips on Disney World fun...

by shawnlin / March 22, 2007 10:44 AM PDT

Veronica, Kent, Bonnie, & Nicole-


I presented at a conference over there a ~3yrs ago and here's what I learned:

If there is an evening entertainment event at the Epcot center - GO! This will probably be the nightly fireworks/light-show but also includes free chocolate and cheesecake desserts of all sorts and for two little words words: CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN! Hot cocoa, coffee, and tea as well. Great for mingling/networking and getting people to loosen up about upcoming cellular technologies Wink

You may notice that Disney employees will always tell you "Have a Magical Day"! You're in a quarantined happy place - just roll with it :o)

And if you got a little time and like Winnie the Pooh, check out "Pooh's Corner" shop at Pleasure Island (also has Disney Quest VR/gaming experience and Cirque). A cute way to say hi to a friend/loved-one is a postcard straight from Pooh Corner - I think they put a "Pooh's Corner" stamp on it Happy

Best wishes and happy travels,

Illuminations, the nightly fireworks show at Epcot, is worth your while. I live here in Orlando and have been to Disney World several times. Also, the restaurant in Italy at Epcot is very good. Have a great trip V.

I'm usually at Epcot every weekend. It is an excellent place to dine, as it has some of the best restaurants at Disney. My favorite is the Nine Dragons in the China Pavilion. Oh, and there is this little tradition called "drinking around the world" Although the Epcot world has only 11 countries, it is enough to make you not want to drive anywhere for a while. Most of all, have fun!!!
