Tropical Palms is a nice campground conveniently located just a couple miles from the Disney entrance. The campground location is just behind “Old Town”, a small amusement park that features free Classic Car Shows every weekend, we hope to get Gary and Marissa to join us here sometime.
The Briggs family has a planned agenda and a bunch of pre-booked Fast Passes for the rides they want to go on. We tag along and spend several days with them enjoying Animal Kingdom and the Dinosaur area, Soaring at Epcot, The Haunted Mansion in the Magic Kingdom, and the Rockin Roller Coaster at Hollywood Studios.
Ellen and I also sneak back to Hollywood Studios after dark to experience the Osborne Christmas Spectacle Of Lights. This massive display of Christmas Lights dancing to the beat of the music is a dazzling tribute to the holidays and this is the last year it will be displayed here at Disney. It was the only event on Ellen’s “Must Do” list.
