Visit Recreational Parks, Mickey Mouse, Woody Woodpecker in Orlando

Below is a cool article I found on another site. It was written by Austin Marsh. I found this while doing some research on Florida, where my family is thinking of going for a vacation.
If you live in Florida and are thinking for a place to have a weekend trip with your family, then consider visiting Walt Disney World. This place of recreation is situated 21 miles southwest of Orlando in Lake Buena Vista, a beautiful city in the state. It is one such destination where both local and foreign tourists take pleasure to visit whenever they get a chance.
Walt Disney World in Orlando covers an area of 30,080-acre of land and is considered as the largest Disney land in the entire world. It consist of 4 themed parks, 2 water parks, 23 resorts and hotels having facilities like campground, health spas, fitness centers and other places for amusement. By visiting this place, you can indulge yourself in various fun-filled activities which are hardly expected in any other kind of recreational venues.
Take a look at tourist activities in the Walt Disney World in Orlando that you would surely want to include in your trip:
• Enjoy a ride on railroad (a steam engine) and capture the scenic vista around the park.
• Take a walk towards the Mickey's Toontown fair and get a chance to meet the popular Disney characters.
• Visit Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique which is a beauty salon and let your beloved daughter dress like a princess.

• Shop some appealing souvenirs, outfits of Disney character and attractive accessories from the Emporium store in the Magic Kingdom.
• Take a magical spin via magic carpets of Aladdin. Each carpet is being equipped with buttons to adjust the movement as per the requirements.
Besides the above mentioned activities, there are more things to do in the Walt Disney World. After discovering the beauty of Disney land, you can also consider visiting the Universal Studio Park in Orlando. The park has themed sections with name like Production Central, New York, San Francisco, World Expo, Woody Woodpecker's Kidzone and Hollywood. The kids will love to take rides in the junior roller coaster at the Woody Woodpecker's Kidzone and you would not mind walking through the greatest monuments in the Hollywood section.
Now, if you want to experience memorable trip to both Walt Disney World and Universal Studio, then you can consider seeking assistance from companies which provide vacation packages. Some reputed tour service providers will help you to book tickets to the amusement parks in advance and also at discount rates.

So, get set to visit the dream-like recreational lands and create memories to be cherished forever.

Comics, Pop Culture items for sale

I have some comic books, including Nightcrawler and Earth 2 on eBay. I'm loving Earth 2 and these are extra copies of issues in my personal collection.

From Wikipedia: In Earth 2, Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman seemingly gave their lives in order to repel the Apokoliptan invasion, leaving behind a world with no heroes.[15] Supergirl and Robin (Helena Wayne) end up stranded in the mainstream universe towards the end of the invasion.[16] When the Earth-2 Solomon Grundy threatens the world, three new heroes team up to defeat him: theFlash (Jay Garrick), Hawkgirl (Kendra Saunders), and Green Lantern (Alan Scott).[17] In later issues, Mister Terrific (Michael Holt) from the mainstream universe joins the team. Other heroes who have made appearances include Dr. Fate (Khalid Ben-Hassin), the Atom (Al Pratt), now nuclear-powered, the Sandman (Wesley Dodds), Mister Miracle, and Big Barda

Giving Paddington Bear Praise

My wife and I took our 4-year-old daughter to see Paddington Bear tonight. I highly recommend the movie.

Without giving away any spoilers, I'll just say it was a good family movie. It was funny, touching and dramatic. There were parts that were somewhat scary for a young child; however, by actually putting the bear in some dangerous situations, it made the movie feel more epic.

Paddington Bear is a good adaptation of a classic cartoon character from the past!

Pink Panther Still Entertains

Another classic cartoon character alongside Woody Woodpecker, Andy Panda, and Mickey Mouse is the Pink Panther.

My daughter recently found reruns of Pink Panther cartoons and loves them. Watching the shows reminded me how amusing they were when I was growing up in the 1970s and 80s.

Fun facts about the Pink Panther is below:

The Pink Panther is the main and title character in the opening and closing credit sequences of every film in The Pink Panther series except for A Shot in the Dark and Inspector Clouseau. His popularity spawned a series of theatrical shorts, merchandise, a comic book, and television cartoons. He starred in 124 short films, 10 television shows and three prime time specials.
