    Maybe I am becoming a grumpy old man, starting to prefer Nature to people or something. Anyway, I am really starting to admire UoR's use of plants and landscaping and all, so I figured I would start posting PICs of the vegetation around the Resort.

    The walkways between the resorts and CityWalk is one of my favorite things in Orlando.

    weather and fun got the best of any of my 'photography' time on this trip. This isn't that great a shot, but some of the landscaping on CBBR's lazy river w/ a volcano peeking through.

    I honestly thought you were going to say early 20s :lol:

    The landscaping really stood out to me on my last visit and I was feeling the same about it.

    I am sure it is like me - age is not the determiner - how you feel is what counts. :)

    Love the landscaping at UOR and the other resorts around Orlando. We are so lucky so many tropicals will grow here. I love to see the plantings and what they look like after a few years growth.

    Yeah, I wish, um no....I was five when my folks took me on our first Disney trip in SEPT of '71. I've been to Orlando many many times since....but I did take a break for a spell...I've just had a resurgence since my daughter was around 9 months old.

    I like what they've been doing with trees and lazy rivers...here is an example from CBBR's lazy river:

    The park's landscaping was surprisingly better than I imagined and am longing to go back. :love:

    ^ I agree. I could spend days just taken pictures at VB. I just really like a lot of what they've done with this park!
