Disney’s Wilderness Preserve

Don’t be fooled by the name, Disney’s Wilderness Preserve is a nature conservancy – a 12,000 acre preserve in fact.  Open Mon-Fri 9am to 5pm it only costs $3 for an adult.   Home to gopher tortoises, bald eagles, sandhill cranes and loads of other wildlife.  The park has a short walking trail through the scrub, fields and woods.  It is only a 20 min drive from Walt Disney World, south of Kissimmee.

Take Poinciana Blvd south off Hwy 192 and turn right on Pleasant Hill Road.  You will then pick up signs to the preserve.
