After the entire city had watched the construction of The Orlando Eye for several years, it finally opened last weekend, along with its sister attractions, Madame Tussauds and Sea Life aquarium. Together, they form the primary attractions of the new entertainment complex known as I-Drive 360.
Yesterday, my girlfriend and I visited a new attraction here in the Orlando area. Orlando Tree Trek, located off exit 1A from FL-429 (about 7 miles south of Walt Disney World), opened in December 2014. They describe themselves as “aerial adventure course”, “an elevated obstacle course”. We decided it’s equally well described as a playground for adults.
For Christmas 2014, my girlfriend surprised me with a reservation for Walt Disney World’s “Backstage Magic” tour. It’s a tour that takes guests behind the scenes and backstage at all four Disney themeparks, into places where even most Cast Members have never been. This tour had been on my “to do” list, pretty much ever since I’d heard of it, nearly a decade earlier. To say that I was excited for this tour is an understatement of epic proportions.
