Change in the Air… Change in Location! by Kim Lawton

Change is in the air! Fall colors are popping up. Attractions are closing, being modified or replaced. And my personal life is beginning a new chapter. One which will find me living in Florida after I retire! Contrary to popular belief, Walt Disney World is not the only reason we are relocating. The weather and escaping the cold is the number one reason, being Mickey Mouse’s neighbor is probably number two!

As I look forward to becoming a Floridian (albeit a transplant), I have been creating a sort of Bucket List of things I was to see and experience there. Of course many of the things are Disney related but my husband and I are looking forward to exploring other things around our new home. Here are a few of things on my list, in no particular order:

1. Take the Back Scenes Safari or Wild Africa Trek tour at Animal Kingdom
2. Visit the Holy Land theme park in Orlando
3. Stay at the DVC Vero Beach Resort
4. See a lighthouse, maybe the one on Sanibel Island
5. Visit the parks in Celebration
6. Explore downtown Clermont
7. Pick oranges
8. Using the monorail, visit the Magic Kingdom Resorts during the holidays
9. See a sporting event at ESPN Wide World of Sports
10. Go to an NFL game
11. See turtles hatching
12. Plant a lantana in my yard (they are seasonal where I am from)
13. Visit Sea World
14. Work Part Time or Seasonally for WDW
15. Visit Cape Canaveral
16. Hike
17. Play golf

As you can see from this list, there are many things to do in Florida in addition to a visit to Walt Disney World. While I love a day at the Park and the notion of being able to just get up and decide to go, there are so many other things I would like to explore. I am looking forward to making this new chapter magical!
