    Doug: My DH and I are in our late 70's and still visit WDW for a week every year. You're a great planner and I have a question: we have our regular routine but wondered if you had any suggestions for us seniors that we might not have thought of. Thanks.


    Here are a few things that my Mom and I have enjoyed on recent trips, as well some I have recommended for friends traveling with their parents;

    Epcot International Food and Wine Festival - it is not just about added food booths from around the world. Wine, cheese and other tasting courses (all at extra charge) are great, and really help you explore culinary areas you might want to learn more about.

    Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival - I DO NOT have a green thumb, but I have really enjoyed this event every time I have been. I especially love the eco-garden displays that they put up.

    Behind the Scenes Tours - There are a ton of choices. Some I avoid, because I don't like having the "magic" spoiled for me by them revealing how they make the attractions work. But others are really great, even for me.  You might enjoy some of the Segway tours, and frankly they are fun to drive!

    Write me back with some guidance of what you like to do, and I can give you more ideas, like maybe surfing lessons?

    Have a magical vacation!
