In June of 2012 we made a trip to Orlando, FL for a visit to Disney World and Universal Studios theme parks. We made the trip with our son Brian, daughter in-law Michelle and the four grandkids.

We drove on this trip with the drive time taking two days. Along the way we made occasional rest stop for a picnic lunch or a fuel or "pit" stop. No, we did not try to all fit into one car and kept in contact via cell phone along the way.

Our first day of travel ended at Pensacola area to stay the night. A very nice out over the water sea food restaurant was a welcome experience at the end of the day.

We made our hotel accommodations in Orlando rather than at one of the hotels on the grounds of the theme parks. It was a few miles drive to and from the parks each day but we did not mind.

Our first day was spent at Universal Studios Theme Park. Just a short distance from the Disney parks we did return later in the week to Universal to cover the theme attractions we may have missed on the first visit.

The next day we spent half a day at Disney's Animal Kingdom park. The animals are real and the environment of the park puts you in your imagination on the savannahs of Africa.

Hollywood Studios lets you relive scenes from popular and classic movies of the past.
The camera equipment used on this trip was the Canon EOS 40D. Lenses was the Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8.
I welcome comments and questions.

Universal Studios Theme Park. Populat movie themes. Hollywood Rip Ride Rocket. The older grandkids rode this one. No one else did for obvious reasons.

Despicable Me Minion Mayhem. Just before we entered into the ride itself. Yellow taxi from Roger Rabbit.

  Honey I shrunk the kids. We really feel tiny in the presence of everyday objects now in giant size.
  The next day we went to Animal Kingdom at the Disney Theme Park. The sense of realism on the safari ride is enhanced by the environment revealing no visible evidence of being "artificial". The landscape looks just like what one would expect in a wildlife preserve in Africa.  


After the Animal Kingdom safari ride we went to Disney's Hollywood Studios. Themes from well known classic movies were very realistic.
