Orlando – vacation week

We stayed one night on the way down to Orlando in the Wildwood KOA near Ocala. I didn’t take any photos since we pulled in after dark, didn’t even unhook, slept and left early the next morning. We should have just stayed in a rest area or Walmart. It wasn’t worth the $45.  The roads were very narrow, and the spot was very tight. But it was a place to sleep.  We booked this site because we thought we would need sewer for one night in between the state park in Pensacola that didn’t have sewer and the city park in Orlando that also didn’t have sewer hookups. But instead, we spent time at the dump station right before we left Big Lagoon State Park in Pensacola dumping and flushing the tanks.  Oh, the joys!  One positive thing about this stay in Ocala was the truck wash that was just across the highway. We were able to take the truck and trailer and get the salt and sand washed off after spending so long in areas near the beaches.


We arrived in Orlando just in time to pick up Garrett’s girlfriend from the airport and head to the Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake. It’s an Orlando city park near the Universal Studios area of the city.  It was a great place to stay!  They had a hiking trails around the lake as well as bikes to rent and three disc golf courses.


We spent two days at Universal and one day at Epcot.  LOTS of walking, but we had a great time.  At Universal we enjoyed lots of 3-D rides and shows.  At Epcot, we made it our goal to eat something in every country so we ordered something small and shared it among the four of us. It was a great way to try lots of new flavors.  Sorry, but I didn’t take very many pictures of these days; I simply enjoyed the time!



We have moved to a regular RV park on the north side of Orlando for this coming week. We hope to work during the day and meet up with a few friends who live in the area during the evenings.
