    As part of an effort by tourism outfits including Walt Disney World, a bill meant to reinstate parental waivers of liability against theme parks and other businesses offering potentially hazardous recreation unanimously passed the house on Tuesday morning.  The bill (SB 2440) was also passed by the senate in late March. The bill was designed to overturn a Florida Supreme Court ruling from two years ago that invalidated parental liability waivers, although the waivers had long been used to protect businesses that accommodate minors. The legislation, however, offers little protection for businesses.  In instances where negligence is claimed, the waiver would not act as a protection.  The bill will only act as a defense in claims when injury is a result of inherent risk. The passage of this bill is just a small part of a larger picture painted by Republican leaders that looks to offer more rigid protection from lawsuits that are a result of these inherent risks.

    I read this great article today from Zannaland . It is something I have been wanting to do for sometime now but could never get myself motivated to do it. Zanna breaks down the differences between all the Walt Disney World Resorts and gives us her opinion of the properties along with some interesting tips & tricks. This is just the first post in a continuing series where she will go into detail covering all the Walt Disney World Resorts. After this series is completed you will walk away with a better idea on which property to visit and make your home away from home. Here is just a sample: As a child, my family discovered the wonder of Disney Resort properties after our 2nd or 3rd visit. I was still young enough at the time to be in complete awe when we arrived from the Orlando airport at the Lake Buena Vista check-in building (now the Amateur Athletics Association building near Downtown Disney) and were given the royal treatment. It’s no surprise, given Disney’s reputation, that 20 years later I still remember the kindness and attention we received from the cast member who’s name I’ve long since forgotten. That’s the Disney experience for you. We stayed on two different occasions in the 1980’s at Disney’s Vacation Villas. These were townhouse-style villas over by the “new” Disney Marketplace. There were 3 different types of villas – The Club Lake Villas, the Fairway Villas, Vacation Villas and the Treehouse Villas. In the 1990’s, these resorts were turned into accommodations for the Disney Institute. When that didn’t quite take off as planned, Disney decided to completely tear down and rebuild the villas (except for the Treehouse Villas!) and created the Saratoga Springs Resort, part of the Disney Vacation Club ownership program. Our experiences there were so wonderful that after that, we were hooked and became Disney Resort regulars. It’s kind of hard to go back to a motel off property once you’ve been spoiled by Disney. We stayed at Port Orleans French Quarter quite a bit, then moved on to Wilderness Lodge and Beach Club. When we stayed at Beach Club, we knew we’d found our home. We would also enjoy the wondrous Animal Kingdom Lodge, Boardwalk, the All-Star and Pop Century properties and Port Orleans Riverside. But like I said, we found our home at Beach Club. If you try out a few Disney resorts, you will find your home too, trust me. There will be one setting that just stands out and each time you walk in the front doors, you take a deep breath, relax, and think – we’re home. This is the type of guest experience that other hotels only dream of achieving. To read the full article click here , and stay tuned for more posts from Zannaland!
