Walt Disney’s vision was that you can get the ride anywhere — it’s the cast member that keeps them coming back. The way you are treated — the people you meet make the difference. From the moment we entered Lake Tobias, there was an immediate connection with the public (from the girl that greeted us on the road and all through the park). The Safari Tour at Lake Tobias was much better than Disney World’s — the whole experience was fantastic. Lake Tobias is the 'Old Disney.' It’s the way Disney used to be — it’s what a theme park should be.
