Un Mundo Magico| A Magic World

Cuatro Parques Tematicos, una sola niñez060

Hablar de un Mundo Magico, es sinonimo de Disney World. La magia de los parques tematicos de Disney World hacen que nos sumerjamos en un mundo de fantasia, donde nos volvemos como chicos al instante. Tanto para adultos, como para pequeños, Disney World es una atraccion que no pasa de moda, y en la  que cada uno de nosotros deja salir a su Mickey Mouse desde el interior.  El encanto de los personajes se refleja en los rostros de todos por igual ya seamos jovenes o ancianos. La belleza incomparable de los jardines y la arquitectura perfectamente diseñad215a de cada y uno de los parques de Orlando, Florida es sencillamente inigualable.

Epcot Center: Nos permite recorrer el mundo a traves de paises que muchas personas no alcanzaran a ver en sus vidas, Nos regala paseos por Asia, con acrobatas en sus calles, nos permite visitar una jolla arqueologica de cientos de años: Los guerreros de terracotta,  saborear comida tipica de cada lugar del planeta. En Epcot, pasas la mañana en Paris saboreado un delicioso pastel y un café; y en la tarde te llegas a Mexico, das un recorrido en bote por Acapulco, no sin antes probar los deliciosos tacos mexicanos. Trajes tipicos de cada pais, replicas de algunos de los lugares mas nombrados del planeta rodean un lindo lago con esa mescla de culturas, arquitectura y diseños unicos encontrados en Disney World.

Magic Kingdom: Es el concentido de los mas pequeñitos. Es impresionante la variedad de shows, de entretenimientos, de restaurantes, tomarse fotos con los personajes de cada pelicula realizada por Disney World, desfiles de dia y de noche, eventos en el famoso Castillo de Cenicienta, expectaculos de fuegos artificiales y muchisimas cosas mas que ofrece este cocentido de Walt Disney. Es el parque mas extenso en cuanto tamaño, tambien el que mas ofrece a los pequeños con opciones para que las familias desayunen, almuerzen o cenen con los personajes de sus cuentos favoritos en gran variedad de restaurantes y/u hotels. Es la fantasia mas real para el mundo infantil. Este parque es unico y todo niño deberia visitarlo algun dia. Niños enfermos y familias con grandes problemas logran olvidarse de su desagradable situacion, por lo menos una ves en la vida, cuando la magia de este parque los alcanza.

Hollywood Studios: antiguamente conocido como MGM, es un poco mas pequeño en extension pero igual de lindo. Aqui encontraras atracciones para los menos pequeños: La Guerra de la Estrellas,  Teatro de los Muppets, La Torre del Terror, entre muchas otras. Este parque tambien ofrece la oportunidad de hacerse fotos con los personajes de tus peliculas favoritas.058

Animal Kingdom: Al igual que todo lo mencionado anteriormente, esta belleza de lugar cuenta tambien con un sin numero de animals salvajes, que te transportan desde las selvas de Africa hasta el mundo subterraneo de los insectos. Es una fantasia a todo dar. Disfruta de un safari, da de comer a la girafas o simplemente pasea en el trencito. Es una especie de zoologico gigante  y a la misma ves tiene shows, espectaculos , uno de los mas conocidos mundialmente es el del Rey Leon, algo que simplemente no te debes saltar.   Hay para todos los gustos.

 ¡Dedicate unos dias y conviertete en un  chico nuevamente! ¡Visita Disney World! ¡No te arrepentiras!


                                               Four Theme Parks, only one childhood life

068

Speaking of a magic world, is equivalent to speaking of Disney World. The magic of the Walt Disney World theme parks causes us all to become submerged in a world of fantasy, where adults instantly become children. For both kids and adults, Disney World is an attraction that doesn’t ever become boring, rather it’s a place where we can all let our inner Mickey Mouse come alive. The thrill of interacting with characters is clearly visible on the faces of every park-goer, despite age. The incomparable beauty of the perfectly crafted gardens and architecture of each and every park in Orlando, Florida is simply one of a kind.

Terracotta Warriors

Epcot Center allows us to travel the world to countries that many people won’t ever get to travel to in their lives. We can travel to Asia, and walk alongside street-performing acrobats; we can visit an archaeological gem from hundred years past: The Terracotta Warriors; taste typical foods from each featured spot on the planet. At Epcot, you can spend your morning in Paris savoring their delicious pastries and coffees; and your afternoon in Mexico, cruising on a boat through Acapulco, but not without tasting some of their delicious Mexican tacos. Traditional clothing from each country, replicas of the places mentioned above (and many more) surrounding a gorgeous lake, a mix of cultures, architecture, and unique design: these are some of the enchanting things you’ll find at Disney World.

 

Magic Kingdom is a fairytale for little ones. The variety of shows, entertainers, and restaurants is mesmerizing. Visitors can take pictures with their favorite movie characters at Disney World and watch them come alive during parades, both during the day and at night. Spectators can also enjoy performances at the Cinderella Castle, firework shows, and so much more that one of Walt Disney World’s favorite parks has to offer. This park is not only the largest in size, but it also offers the most for children with character-dining options. It’s a child’s fantasy come to life. This park is unique and every child should have the opportunity to make their dreams come to life at Magic Kingdom. Even unfortunate families can find a way to leave their worries behind, at least for a while, when encountering the magic this park has to offer.

Hollywood Studios, previously known as MGM Studios, is the smallest of the four parks, but don’t let it fool you; this park is a blast! Here you’ll find attractions for thrill seekers and adventurers like Star Wars, The Tower of Terror, The Muppets Theater, and many more. This park also offers countless photo-opts with your favorite characters.

Animal Kingdom captures all the aforementioned beauty of the parks, alongside a countless number of wild animals that will transport visitors to various worlds like the wild African jungles and the mesmerizing, underground world of insects. Enjoy a wild safari, feed giraffes, or simply take an overlooking train ride. Despite being a giant, interactive zoo, visitors can also experience shows and performances; one of the fan-favorites being The Lion King, a definite must-see. Animal Kingdom has something for everyone.

Tradicion de Fin de año en Cuba | New Years Tradition in Cuba

Everything begins with the pig.  Since early on New Year’s Eve, the man from the house head to a farm to pick a good pig.

Todo comienza con el puerco o cerdo. Desde muy temprano, los hombres de la casa salen a las fincas en busca de un buen cerdo.

Meanwhile at home is time to make the buñuelos (traditional Cuban desert), the black beans, white rice, yucca and salad.

Mientras tanto en la casa , se preparan los buñuelos, el arroz blanco, los frijoles negros, la yuca y la ensalada.

For many hours, the pig gets cooked until reaches the perfect color and the skin is crunchy.

Se cocina el puerco por varias horas hasta que alcanza el color perfecto y el pellejo esta bien tostado.

The Smoky National Park

 

  • Prepare your trip ahead of time, The Smoky National Park can be dangerous during winter months. Many roads are close and cabins tended to be sold out fast. There are several good logging options, in North Carolina and in Tennessee, both will give you access to the park. Helpful information about the park: http://www.nps.gov/grsm/planyourvisit/maps.htm
  • I choose Tennessee just because Gatlinburg (town) offers a lot to do and see. There is also Pigeon Forge (sister town) and many RV campgrounds in both towns.
  • In Gatlinburg you have endless options: luxury cabins(with pools, spa, theater), economic cabins, higher cabins, cabins and hotels near the river, cabins with lots of rooms or few rooms and many more. Good information here: CabinsoftheSmokyMountains.com, http://www.vrbo.com, AmericanMountainRentals.com

  • Divide your map, in parts (days) so you won’t skip anything. There is a lot to do and see!!!
  • Always take snacks, and drinks with you.
  • Fill your car with gas before go.
