    We are staying at the Ft Wilderness Villas next week! I was thinking of things to do with my 3 soon to be 4 year old gran daughter while the rest of family on an Epcot tour. Any sudggestions ? Thanks

    Hi Joan!

    Be sure to have you camera charged and bring plenty of back-up because you are going to want so many pictures of your visit to Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge during the Holiday season! The entire Walt Disney World Resort hotel is just magnificent this time of year, but this is an absolute favorite for me. It's breathtaking. 

    If your granddaughter is like my two young adventurers, she will really love a visit to the Tri-Circle-D Ranch located just a quick boat ride away at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground. Visit the working horses of Walt Disney World Resort, learn a little more about the history of these magnificent creatures, and enjoy a trail ride on some of the working ponies. The white ones are used to pull Cinderella's Carriage! My girls have grown to love some of these special friends. It's a must-visit for all of our vacations.

    After your rootin' tootin' trail experience, maybe check out Disney's Perfectly Princess Tea! Held on select mornings at 10:30 A.M. at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, your granddaughter will receive a rose directly from Aurora's garden, and will experience music, dance, and pampering that she will never forget. Reservations are highly recommended and can be made by calling 407-WDW-MYTEA or 407-939-6983.

    Enjoy your special time with your granddaughter, Joan!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
