Photo du Jour: Kissimmee Inspiration

East (and south) bound and down, loaded up and truckin' . . .

Surely everyone knows that couple that is completely insane for Disney, right? You know, the couple that takes every single vacation to Orlando--perhaps once or twice a year. Their honeymoon: DisneyWorld. Their kid's first vacation: DisneyWorld. Celebration of the kid's first baby tooth falling out: DisneyWorld. One of the sacred rules when going to Orlando for these types is "never, never stay on the park grounds"--it costs too much. The Orlando mecca of lodging/good places to eat (i.e. Red Lobster) according to these Disneyphiles: US 192 in Kissimmee just to the southeast of "the park" otherwise known as the worst stretch of strip development in the history of mankind. Veterans Boulevard in Metairie or Florida Boulevard in Baton Rouge has nothing on this piece of work.

I am not the biggest fan of Disney vacations in my adult, supposedly informed age, but my child's age however gives him different ideas. Throw his grandparents into the mix and its obvious where this is going. We intended on breaking the sacred rule and staying at the RV facility "on the park grounds" despite its Eisner-fied price (I know, I know--hes out) but there was no room at the inn. So instead we ended up at a private RV park located on the above-mentioned highway o'crap. The above picture captures the awe inspiring view of Sam's Wholesale Club (or Sham's as I like to call them) from our otherwise first-rate pad . . .

Hey! My dad grew up in Kissimmee. I remember traveling there as a kid when it was nothing but dirt roads. Those were the days.

Happy holidays
