Nineteen Years Without Walt Disney World

As a Disney geek, I find it hard to imagine. Nevertheless, my sister and her husband are right now at Walt Disney World nineteen years after their last visit in 1992. (Photo above with most of all the kids in our family circa 1992.) Absolutely unbelievable. I am thrilled for them!

Imagine experiencing a whole new theme park (Animal Kingdom), Test Track, Mission:Space, and Soarin' at Epcot , Toy Story Midway Mania and Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, and Rock N Rollercoaster for the first time. Of course, they also have to deal with the dumbing down of Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom, the disintegration of the Imagination pavilion, and the same old World Showcase at Epcot. I'll report back in the days ahead with what could be a very interesting perspective on the current state of Walt Disney World through the eyes of someone not quite as fanatical as the rest of us.
