Wikipedia will give you an overview if you don’t know what it is. Theme parks are a business phenomena to behold. Mind-boggling. EPCOT alone had 11,229,000 visitors in 2013. This document enlightens. Entry tickets are $35-$94 per day, mostly in the upper end. Suppose visitors spent as much as $100/day/person, including food and souvenirs, not including lodging and meals outside. That would be annual revenue of $1,122,900,000. Over a billion. Well, there is a lot of maintenance. 😉
My go-to lens was the 18-55mm (18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AF-S DX VR NIKKOR Zoom Lens). There is nothing like bright, cloudless, Florida daylight to supplement the amateur photographer.
I HIGHLY recommend the Living with the Land tour (included with admission) and the Behind the Seeds side tour ($20 extra and one of the best $20 I ever spent).
(See the link to OneDrive photos at the end of this post for lots more on the Seeds tour.)
