Review of Kilimanjaro Safaris, Orlando by Secre

The Kilimanjaro Safaris is one of the key attractions at Animal Kingdom, Orlando and is an open-sided safari ride through what simulates the African savannah. It is officially classed as a ride I suppose in the park, but is more like a guided tour through ... Read review

Your reviews seem like less of a review of the Disney parks and more of a guided tour... by Soho_Black

Around the World and Back!
Review of EPCOT by Secre

Advantages: The World Showcase is excellent
Disadvantages: The rides are rather naff

EPCOT was the second Disney Park we went to, and quite interestingly we actually spent more time at most of the Disney parks than we did at Universal. This is noteworthy because the Disney parks were very much an add on to our honeymoon, rather than the m ... Read review

Advantages: All around decent hotel that isn't a massively high end price
Disadvantages: There are a lot of families

For our fourteen days in Orlando, we stayed in the Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort. I’m actually not sure why it is called a beach resort considering there is no beach that I could see at any rate, but it is a hotel associated with Universal. The reas ... Read review
