This Travel Channel special looks at some of the lesser-known things you can do at the Walt Disney World Resort. This special is particularly fun for me, as I worked there over two years ago. My favorite part of the special was the segment on "Divequest," a program at Epcot's "The Living Seas," in which guests can swim in this giant aquarium with all the wonderful fish and interact with guests on the other side of the tank. It was actually kind of heartwarming when they showed a father scuba diving and going up to his little daughter on the other side. It was very sweet and magical, just what Walt Disney World strives for!
Other interesting segments include surfing at Disney's water park, Typhoon Lagoon, before the park opens! My dad enjoyed the segment on "Richard Petty's Driving Experience," and my mom enjoyed the segment on the yacht that takes guests out on the Seven Seas Lagoon, where they can see the Magic Kingdom fireworks and enjoy a world-class meal with their own butler! Now, that's luxury!
There were some segments that I didn't care too much for though. I thought the segment on Magic Kingdom's night parade, "Spectromagic," to be kind of boring, and my mind wandered quite a bit during that segment. I was also confused at why they highlighted "Fantasmic" in this special, because I don't think it's all that hidden.
Nevertheless, this is another fun and interesting visit to the premiere vacation destination in the entire world! Also, be on the lookout for another Travel Channel special, "Walt Disney World Resort: Behind the Scenes," and the Discovery Channel special, "Disney's Thrillmakers: The Art of the Thrill."
My IMDb Rating: 8/10
