Our Last Trip to Disney World 2015

 
 

 
Our last trip to Disney World was in Nov, 2015. Our previous trips had been in March and October. We knew we didn't want to go in the summer and figured that November would be perfect weather. But unfortunately, we were having a "heat wave" on the east coast and even though it was November, Disney World was miserably hot.

This page is just a quick preview of the resort where we stayed at Disney, Dixie Landings, as well as the four theme parks: Animal Kingdom, Disney's Hollywood Studios, Epcot and Magic Kingdom. If you want to see all the photos follow the links in this paragraph or the links below each section below. We did not visit any of the water parks or Downtown Disney/Disney Springs on this trip.
 
 
 

DIXIE LANDINGS

 
 
Disney's Port Orleans Resort Riverside was designed to reflect the antebellum south along the Mississippi River. The resort opened in 02 Feb 1992 as DISNEY'S DIXIE LANDINGS RESORT, initially with rooms located in its Alligator Bayou section. Shortly afterwards the Magnolia Bend section was opened. We stayed in the Alligator Bayou section of Dixie Landing. Alligator Bayou has 1,024 guest rooms in 16 buildings styled as rustic, weathered lodges, with 64 rooms per lodge.

ANIMAL KINGDOM

 
 
DISNEY'S ANIMAL KINGDOM is a zoological theme park at the Walt Disney World Resort in Bay Lake, Florida, near Orlando. Animal Kingdom is the largest theme park in the world, covering 580 acres. The park opened on Earth Day, 22 Apr 1998, and was the fourth theme park built at the resort. The park is dedicated and themed entirely around the natural environment and animal conservation, a philosophy once pioneered by Walt Disney himself.

Animal Kingdom is distinguished from the rest of the Disney World theme parks in that it features traditional attractions while also exhibiting hundreds of species of live animals. Due to these sensitive conditions, special designs and provisions were incorporated throughout the park to protect the animals' welfare. The park is the second-most visited at Disney World, behind Magic Kingdom.

DISNEY'S HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS

 
 
DISNEY'S HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS is one of the four theme parks at Disney World in Bay Lake, FL, near Orlando. The park opened in 1989 as the Disney-MGM Studios Park and was the third of the four theme parks at Disney World. Spanning 135 acres, the park is dedicated to the imagined worlds from film, television, music, and theatre, drawing inspiration from the Golden age of Hollywood.
 
 
HOLLYWOOD BOULEVARD, inspired by the real street of the same name, serves as the park's main entrance and operates in the same vein as Main Street, U.S.A. at Magic Kingdom. It is lined with themed streetscape facades and venues selling Disney merchandise and park services. Live street entertainment and seasonal parades travel down the main street throughout the day.

EPCOT

 
 
EPCOT is a theme park at Walt Disney World Resort in Bay Lake, FL. The park opened 01 Oct 1982 and was the second of four theme parks built at Disney World, after the Magic Kingdom park. Epcot is dedicated to the celebration of human achievement, namely technological innovation and international culture, and is often referred to as a "permanent world's fair". The park is divided into two sections, (1) Future World and (2) World Showcase
SPACESHIP EARTH in 2015
 
THE SEAS, formerly called THE LIVING SEAS, is an aquarium and attached dark ride attraction located on the western side of Future World at Epcot. The pavilion is themed as an underwater exploration base called SeaBase Alpha, with several exhibits devoted to oceanic study. The pavilion opened in 1986. In 2003, the name was changed to The Seas With Nemo & Friends.

The CANADA PAVILION is designed to remind guests of Canada's outdoors. It includes a canyon, a waterfall, gardens, a pool with fountains, and totem poles. Further in to the pavilion, beyond the rustic log cabins, a small thoroughfare is designed to represent the British and French influences and heritage through its building. The Chateau Frontenac dominates the skyline. The main attraction is "Canada: Far and Wide", a Circle-Vision 360 movie of Canada's cities, scenery and people. The pavilion also includes Le Cellier Steakhouse and the former home of the Celtic rock band Off Kilter.

MAGIC KINGDOM

 
 
MAGIC KINGDOM is a theme park at Walt Disney World Resort in Bay Lake, Florida, near Orlando. Its design is dedicated to fairy tales and Disney characters. The park is represented by Cinderella Castle, inspired by the fairy tale castle seen in the 1950 film. It 2019 the park hosted almost 21 million visitors, making it the most visited theme part in the world for the thirteenth consecutive year and the most visited theme park in North America for at least the past nineteen years.
 
CINDERELLA CASTLE is Cinderella's fairy tale castle and the center of Magic Kingdom in Disney World. The castle was inspired by a variety of real and fictional palaces. There are 27 towers on the castle and it is surrounded by a moat. In February 2020, Disney announced that the castle would be getting dark blue roofs, a slight rose pink color, and have many gold trim accents on the castle, along with darker stone.
