Last February I had occasion to visit Orlando Florida, but found I am past my prime for the wonder of Disneyland. If you don't have kids with you, it just isn't magic. However, I did find something unexpected in a visit to the "Holy Land" that I would recommend. There were exhibits, interactive teachings and an unfolding of Christ's last walk in which visitors became a part of the crowd watching our struggling, suffering Lord pass so close, yet a part of that same crowd held in the tension between personal safety and personal intervention. If you go to Orlando and are looking for something different, I would say this is worth a visit. There is not the glitz and glamour of the Magic Kingdom, but the theology is sound and the experience transformational.
