    I have been to WDW more times than I can count and I like to find or do at least one thing that we've never done each visit, like one thing I got to see a couple of years ago was the flag ceremony at MK. What are some of the hidden gems you all have found?

    Have you ever enjoyed the Fort Wilderness area?  This has many great hidden gems that many guests would never know about.  There are carriage rides through the woods and along the beach and this is the place where you can also take a horseback ride or the little ones a pony ride.  My grandson still talks about his ride on Nemo the little white pony!  Related to that you can tour the stables where all the Magic Kingdom horses live and the blacksmith who is often seen working on new shoes for these honored cast members.

    Other different activities in Fort Wilderness include archery, canoeing, kayaking, and night time campfire sing-a-longs followed by movies under the stars.  Fun times can be found for all ages in this hidden location of Walt Disney World.  While you are walking around the property heading toward the beach look for the "lawnmower" old tree that eventually was cut down but had grown around an old fashioned push lawnmower which still can be seen!
