5 Ways To Get Back To Nature At Walt Disney World
With so many exciting activities at the theme parks, many people don't realize that you can spend some time interacting with nature at Walt Disney World as well. Conservation and education were always important to Walt, and the company continues to find ways to offer some simpler pleasure to it's guests. Check out my 5 favorite ways to get back to nature in Disney.
Horseback Riding - An exciting array of outdoor activities can be found at the Tri-Circle-D, located in Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground. Enjoy some good old-fashioned fun as you and your trusty steed venture off on a 45 minute guided trail ride through the area's natural (and a few man-made) wonders. Not ready to ride a horse on your own? Then check out the carriage rides also taking you through scenic natural woodlands of Central Florida.
Fishing Excursions - ESPN offers guided fishing trips on the lakes and waterways of Walt Disney World leaving from many of the resort's marinas. Book a two-hour excursion and cast your line for some relaxing fun on the Florida waters.
