Episode 410: Welcome, fellow Disney enthusiasts, to another exciting episode of Traveling with the Mouse! In this edition, we join Jason and Adam on their recent trip Walt Disney World. Join us as we delve into their experiences staying in a treehouse villa, reconnecting with friends who hadn’t visited in years, and Adam’s extra day at Wilderness Lodge. Nestled amidst the lush vegetation of Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort, Jason and Adam enjoyed the tranquility of a Treehouse Villa. These unique accommodations, perched high above the ground, provided a sense of seclusion and a touch of wilderness while still being part of the enchanting resort atmosphere. Surrounded by nature, they were able to unwind and recharge after days filled with Disney adventures. We were joined by some friends who hadn’t been in several years so we hit all of the new highlights like Tron, Guardians of the Galaxy, Toy Story Land and Galaxy’s Edge. We also had some great experiences at Enzo’s Hideaway, La Cava Del Tequila, and Baseline taphouse to name a few. We also had to visit this classic attractions like Carousel of Progress, Tom Sawyer Island, Haunted Mansion, and Pirates. Adam also stayed an extra night at Wilderness Lodge and went to Geyser Point.
