I have yet to go, but I have interviewed many people who have and they all said Orlando Disney World was so worth it. The only complaint anyone gave was the crowds, the cost, and the heat, but other than that – Magical.
All the above factors can be avoided, and one can choose to go at a quieter or cooler time of the year. You can also save thousands with a bit of careful planning.
I plan on going there in 2020, depending obviously on the exchange rate. I have bought this handy ebook which will save me thousands when I do go.

Orlando turned into one of the top vacation locations in all of the United States in 1971 when Disney World opened its gates. This entertainment mecca is world-famous as the home of Disney World ®, but even without Disney, Orlando would still be a wonderful place to have a holiday.

An intriguing mix of conventional Zoo, together with a couple of amazing flights. There are a variety of highlights to the Animal Kingdom, but the Jeep Safari is an absolute must so I hear.
Thrill Rides In Orlando Disney World
Over 50 million people visit Disney World each year to have a taste of the magic and to sample the thrilling rides the park has to offer.
Here are just a few of the many rides you can do.
In the Magic Kingdom you can take a narrated river boat cruise into the jungle where you get to meet audio-animatronic hippopotamus, elephants and lion. You will travel the rivers of 4 continents and will come across unique animals in both ancient ruin and jungle settings.
While still feeling daring, make a beeline to the Pirates of the Caribbean theme park for one of the most popular thrill rides for tourists in Orlando Disney World. The Pirates of the Caribbean has amused millions of visitors on an exhilarating adventure through dark, mystical caverns and caves where ‘dead men tell no tales’.
There is a nine-minute flight, starring a cast of rascals. Have a rollicking boat flight to a Caribbean port under siege by a flamboyant band of pirates.
After your escape from the pirates, you might want to skyrocket into the sky on the Magic Carpets with Aladdin. Set in a world of flying carpets, genies and magic lights, visitors will be sent flying on an Arabian-themed experience with a young Aladdin.
We get down to earth or rather into earth next at the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad trip in Frontierland. Take this thrilling roller-coaster trip through the gorges and caverns of a deserted gold mine, on a runaway mine train. Dive through the 179-foot-high red stone mountain and on to Tumbleweed, a flooded mining town in the Wild West.
Next to the Big Thunder Railroad trip is the Slash Mountain trip. Be prepared for a heart-stopping ending here.
Splash Mountain stars a cast of 68 Audio-Animatronics characters. This is among the largest groups of animated figures ever put together in a Walt Disney World tourist attraction. To start the 11-minute experience ride, visitors will need to climb on board an eight-person flume log to travel the canals of a flooded mountain.
It culminates when visitors, tucked into their flume logs, plunge over the top of a steep spillway, zooming from the mountaintop to a briar-covered pond five stories below. Well, this is a Splash trip as its name warns.
There so many more rides in Orlando Disney World and to explain them in words will be doing injustice to so many of them.
