Disney Vacation Planners Flock to the Internet

By Jennifer and Dave Marx

For sheer size, scope and fun, few vacation destinations rival Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Disney packs four legendary theme parks, water parks, shopping and entertainment districts, over 20 resort hotels, and 250 eateries into its 47 square mile "world." What's more, Disney's world never stands still--they're always ringing in the new and wringing out the old. With all these choices, it takes careful planning to organize a happy, magical holiday instead of a harried, disappointing ordeal. How can a determined vacation planner ever keep up? Join the migration to the Internet, of course!
