In September 2000, Roger and I packed up our things and headed off to the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando Florida for a much deserved, fun-filled vacation. We both are annual passholders to Disneyland in California, so we came to WDW with a west coast slant. I had been to WDW during the same time of year back in 1992 and have been itching to come back ever since. We decided to go during the same time of year as before due to the low crowds. However, be warned! The Love Bugs are out in full force and a hurricane is always brewing this time of the year. If you can put up with these small inconveniences, it is well worth going during this period.
We chose the Dixie Landings Resort mainly because my experience last time. I wanted to try a new resort, but none of the other resorts in my price range appealed to me. Dixie Landings had prime location (Near EPCOT and Downtown Disney, and not too far from the Magic Kingdom) and the fact that it will be swallowed up by the Port Orleans resort next year cinched our decision.
We had a great time and can't wait to go back, but until we do, please share our memories of our trip as updated each day while we were in Orlando.
