Where I stayed
Sheraton's Vistana Resort is our RCI current timeshare exchange. This is one of the largest we have visited. There are many buildings multiple levels of condo units, 7 pools, 3 restaurants, general store, 3 recreation buildings, and many planned activities . Believe it is on 134 beautifully landscaped acres and has a great location. While it is not new, it is extremely well maintained.
Jack knows every flea market in Orlando and Daytona Beach and makes his rounds. As many of you know, he carries a small shoulder bag that he wears diagonally across his body. Well, he has purchased 6 bags on this trip. After he arrives back at the condo, he takes out his kit and attaches patches, pins, etc.
Orlando has great outlet shopping centers. There are least two that we visit each trip and we found a new one that has recently opened just a mile or so from the condo.
Will miss one of our favorites this year: Disney World's Epcot Center. Disney brings in local school and church choirs who, along with Disney's own singers and orchestra, perform Christmas classics. Additionally, a celebrity reads the Luke 2 Christmas story from the Bible. That surprised and impressed me about Disney. Epcot's (and other Disney parks) daily rate was raised to $71 so we are passing on the concert-which is our main reason to go to Epcot. Do plan to go to Disney Village shops, which require no entrance fee.
Two afternoons we looked into the sky and saw a skywriter drawing designs. We watched him draw: "God + U + :-) " (the last figure was not sideways and had a full circle around it for a face. He made 3 others but by the time he finished the next, the others had become too fuzzy to read. What an inspiration to see that instead of an advertisement done by skywriters.
Today we go to Tampa and will leave our van in our niece, Kathy Muscatell's garage while we fly to Rochester, MN to spend Christmas with Kiki and family. Jack will also continue his Mayo Clinic appointments while we are there.
