This trip was a terrific break from the winter weather of Buffalo - a time to enjoy the warmth of the Florida sun and the nightlife of a tourist city.

Best Way To Get Around:

Without a doubt, the best way to get around in Orlando is by car. Taxis are too expensive, and anyone who's been to Orlando knows it's not a place where you want to walk from one attraction to another. However, staying at Cypress Point near the Disney Resort, we were able to walk to the entrance and use the shuttles within Disney.

This is an absolutely perfect resort for families. We had four adults and a child in the two-bed/two-bath unit and we were never cramped for space. The staff was friendly and courteous, and the accommodations made this trip the relaxing vacation we'd planned on.

This is the best restaurant in Orlando, as far as steakhouses go. Unlimited sirloin for $9.99 per person including cakes and ice cream. Does it get any better?

Absolutely fabulous! It really is a clean park and great for families with children. I do recommend to get in line for the shows 30-40 minutes early because they do have a hard time getting everyone in.
