I remember when I went one year we went to the daytona races in July and it was 99 degrees.

So it is hot in florida but firstly you're going to be inside for the pony meet so not really a problem there.

Going to places like Disney, I do advise people to pace themselves considering the summer months are the peak season and in my experience going to places like Disney in florida is better done during the off season, like January or November. I had my best experience at Disney when me and my family went mid November. My worse experience was going on July 4th and the week after christmas. DO NOT go there on the 4th you will be sorry. I went on the 4th one year and they had to close magic kingdom because it was full. Yes, they maxed out the number of people that could be in the park. And when it was time to leave that place, we did not get out of there till 3am because everyone was leaving at the same time.

I'm not sure when everyone is going to do other stuff, the week before the fair or stay the week after but I strongly advice missing theme parks on the 4th of July.

So if you are going to do disney be prepared to wait a lot and a lot of heat, if you take kids be prepared to hear a lot of fussing. I'd just advise taking your time, seeing what you can see at Disney and not be disappointed if you can't do everything.

Try to find a pony friend who has been to Disney is always a plus for newbies.

I'd say if you've never been any of the theme parks are great. I'm kinda cheesy and I love Epcot but if you've never been to Disney World you'll probably want to do Magic Kingdom. Animal Kingdom is okay.

You forgot my absolute favorite park the Disney Studios! (I might be a little bias because I worked there!)

Yes it is hot in July - But! There are enough places to cool off- almost every indoor attraction is Air Conditioned and it always cools off in the afternoon after the rain - it rains nearly every day there between 1pm and 3pm you can almost set your watch by it! The rain is usually short and sweet - 30mins-1hr at the most and walla slightly cooler weather and less humidity. Happy

One place that should be on the top of a visitors list is Downtown Disney! It's free to visit (unless your like me and like to buy lots of cool stuff)- lots to see and do.

Its also a good idea when getting a hotel to look for one with a free shuttle to the parks even if your not planning on going to the parks you can use their transportation system to get you to places like Downtown Disney or any of the Disney Resort hotels - which are great places to take pictures!

I'm already making plans and saving pennies it's gonna be a tight year but I'm going - I may not go home...

I love that park to! I'm not picky I love it all but most people want to do magic kingdom if they've never been. I didn't know you worked there ivy! Thats cool.

YES, they have a BIG lego store!! And there is a movie theater there as well if I remember rightly and a lot of stores. Last time I went the hotel we stayed at was in the downtown disney area because I could walk to it Smile

First I have to say I love your avvie because I have a picture of Skyrocket in almost the exact same place, YAY EPCOT!

Also I'm in New Smyrna Beach so not far!


FINALLY FLORIDA!

I don't have a car atm, that may change before next year but if not would some pony be willing to pick me up and such? I'm only an hour from Orlando and I WILL NOT MISS IT THIS YEAR DARN IT!



And if any pony wants a Disney guide I'm your girl, I had a Florida Resident pass for a year, park-hopper pass and all, I know all the tricks, the parks inside and out, best times for each ride, how to find charactera and even the BEST places to eat!

So when Roomy got home last night the first words I said to her were "it's only 23 hours and 41 minutes to drive to Orlando" and her response was "Ooh, the Fair's in Orlando? We can totally do that!" So vacation time and money permitting, we'll be there again!

I fear no heat and humidity! Ottawa can go from 131 degrees F with 100% humidity in the summer to -67 F (also 100% humidity) in the winter! I much prefer the summer heat!

I had to google conversions, so 90 degrees is about the same as 32 degrees in Australia, so that's not really too hot, but when you add 100% humidity, I think i would literally die LOL! Orlando sounds a bit like Darwin in Australia, doesn't have 4 seasons, just wet or dry....

Thanks! I try to take a different pony with me each time I go to Disney and get a picture of them somewhere different. Fluttershy is the only pony that I took pictures of her everywhere around EPCOT. Even the guy at Target when I got the picture printed commented on it and said he recognized EPCOT!

Orlando? Bummer. That's more than a 24-hour drive from me right now, and considering that Consumer Reports just listed it as one of the worst cities in the US to try walking anywhere in, I'm not sure I want to go. :/

I shall have to think on this. awake

I do hope to attend the pony fair someday, but until it gets closer to where I am, I am out of luck.
