This week’s topic is Adventure.  Adventure means different things to different people.  Today’s picture is one of my favorites.  It was taken during our 2010 trip to Walt Disney World.  We were staying at Wilderness Lodge and waiting for the Magical Express to take us to the airport.  My wife and I were checking something out (possibly some topiaries, I can’t remember).  Our daughter, on the other hand, had found a different and new adventure….a set of tracks imprinted into the concrete sidewalk.

Disney Vacation Club Expansion – Wilderness Lodge

According to Tim K., who does a wonderful job with the website, Disney Vacation Club has filed paperwork to expand the Disney Vacation Club offerings at the Wilderness Lodge.  This expansion looks like it will include 26 lake-side cabins.  12 of these cabins will be on the north-side of Wilderness Lodge.  They will have a view of the Magic Kingdom and presumably of the nightly fireworks show.  The remaining 14 cabins will be on the south-side of Wilderness Lodge.  These cabins will have a view of Bay Lake and of the Fort Wilderness area.
