One of the first Florida state parks we camped at was Lake Louisa State Park, where some friends of ours had rented a cabin for a games weekend. When it got to be around 10:00 pm, we heard lots of booming sounds, realized it was Disney’s fireworks show, and also realized that Lake Louisa would be a great camping base for going to Disney World.
I’ve lived in Florida for over five years and had never been to Disney, so we started making plans and finally made it this month for my birthday. We took Friday off, arrived at the park around noon, got all set up and headed out to Downtown Disney for dinner.
We ate at House of Blues – the best part of the dinner was definitely the dessert.
All things Disney are about 20 miles away from Lake Louisa, so it’s not quite as convenient as staying at their on-site RV park, but for 1/5 the nightly rate, it made our trip much more affordable.
