We visited not long after hurricane Irma had swept through the area, meaning much of the park was closed to visitors whilst maintenance teams worked on clean-up operations. However, the main spring area was open as usual and was reasonably busy on the day we...More

Disney and all that it's offers the Orlando tourist, provides exactly what it says on the tin; excitement, buzz, crowds, noise, screaming and cash sapping opportunities for the family. Wekiwa Springs in contrast offers you peace, tranquility and a natural experience, all from the comfort...More
