    Well, you know us Americans. We are scared of SARS... having said that, I suggest -- Americans, that you just bring your fat bottoms down to Kissimmee's Splendid China and you can save TIME and MONEY! And isn't it the same, anyway?!

    Discovery Island

    Tree of Life

    This island lies in the middle of Animal Kingdom and is your departure point for excursions into the different realms of the park.
    On the island you will find "The Tree of Life", the symbol of Animal Kingdom. This awe-inspiring masterpiece stands 14 stories tall and includes a swirling tapestry of over 325 animal images. It is just wonderful!
    In the root system of the tree, you can watch "It's Tough to be a Bug" It's a 3-D show where you can see life from an insect's point of view. Go and watch it, it was a great show!

    Animal Kingdom

    Never had the opportunity to do a real safari in Kenya, well here is your chance. Experience an exciting expedition through an African savannah in an open-air safari bus and see animals like giraffes, gazelles, elephants, rhinos and lions freely roam the acres of land, rivers and rocky hills.

    Wow... more photos of SPLENDID CHINA

    by Hexepatty Updated Sep 22, 2003

    You won't get SARS, but you COULD get West Nile if a Mosquito bites you. Hmmm.. Splendid China doesn't cost as much as Disney or Sea World, but it also doesn't have rides and it's not that large. But there is lots of live entertainment and historcial content!

    And if the Mosquetos don't bite you, you could get sun burn and get cancer. But Seriously... I think you would like Splendid China. It is better than Walt Disney's EPCOT CHina pavillion. Many folks from China work here and you get the sense it is really authentic. The Live Performances were great. They are from China on an exchange program!

    You love it. Admit it. We saw so many sights, and the best part: the park was EMPTY. No One Was there! Can't say that about MGM or Disney.... Or Universal or Sea Life Park. Yup... Splendid China is UNCROWDED, folks. No SARS, Cheaper, Clean, Uncrowded and Close to Home if you are in the US. They speak English and us US Currency!!

    SPLENDID CHINA! Yeah, I took lots. ANd just uncovered them tonite. Lucky you. I remember my mom being excited at first, and quickly bored later. She had already been to Mainland China, so she was quick to relay it was fairly authentic, if small... DId I mention SPlendid China is all MINATURES of the Greatest Sights in all of China!?!

    Firework at Epcot

    In 1996, I went to Epcot twice to see the fireworks. This year, I wouldn't want to miss it either. For me, it's still the best firework I ever saw because of the great location, right in the middle of the World Showcase Lagoon with wonderful matching music. It just takes your breath away!

    So don't miss this grand finale, every night. Pick up a "Times Guide" for the exact time. For the best views, choose an area around World Showcase Lagoon at least 30 minutes prior to show time.

    Main Street

    Main Street, Magic Kingdom

    After entering Magic Kingdom, you'll have to pass Main Street to go to the other 'lands'. It's a lovely broad street with shops and eateries. From here, you can take the Walt Disney World Railroad, an authentic steam train, to Frontierland and Mickey's Toontown Fair or just have a ride in a horse-drawn trolley.

    Spash Mountain

    Hop on a log and ride to Brer Rabbit's Laughin' Place. Beware of the soggy 5-story drop into the briar patch. You will definitely get wet at Splash Mountain.
    Board a runaway mine train on an exciting roller coaster ride through the Old West in the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.
    Raft across the Rivers of America to explore hills, caves a fort and trails of fun on Tom Sawyer Island.
    Try your luck in the Old West Shooting Arcade.

    Liberty Square

    If you never had the luck of cruising down the Mississippi on a steam-powered paddle wheeler, well here is your chance on the Liberty Square Riverboat. Afterwards, go to the Haunted Mansion for a creepy ride through a 19th-century mansion and watch out for the ghoul sitting next to you!

    Mickey's Toontown

    Between Fantasyland and Tomorrowland, there is the little town of Mickey and his friends. It's a lovely place where you can visit Mickey's and Minnie's Country house and see how they really live, or take off on a family roller coaster ride in the Barnstormer at Goofy's Wiseacre farm.

    Playhouse

    Especially for the smaller kids, there's Playhouse Disney - Live on Stage. This imaginative, musical live stage show will have your kids singing, dancing and playing along with their pals from Bear in the Big Blue House, Rolie Polie, The Book of Pooh and Stanley.

    old town

    old town is a collection of shops, restaurants, and bars located on US192 just east of the I-4 exit. there also is a haunted house and amusement rides. on friday and saturday evenings they have a classic car show. admission and parking to old town is free. this tourist attraction should not be confused with the kissimmee historic district.
