The newest attraction at
Disney World is the Disney-
MGM Studios Theme Park, a
new magical kingdom dedi-
cated to the wonderful world
of movies. Highlights of the
park include a replica of Hol-
lywood Boulevard, a "Back-
stage Studio Tour," movie
memorabilia, and the oppor-
tunity to witness and par-
ticipate in the filming of ac-
tual movies and TV shows.
Universal Studios
Florida, Orlando: The
whole family will enjoy
Florida's newest theme park.
Universal Studios Florida,
opening in May 1990, is a
spectacular backlot featuring
entertainment attractions
based on the most popular
motion pictures ever produc-
ed. More than 50 actual mo-
tion picture and television
sets, 40 restaurants, and 30
shops and boutiques will be
open to the public.
Visitors to the park will be
able to put themselves in the
middle of some of their favor-
ite movies, including "Back
to the Future" and "E.T." The
park will also feature live-
action entertainment ranging
from a "Ghostbusters" show
to a "Big One" California
earthquake simulation.
Visitors will see actual
movies and television shows
being filmed, and will literal-
ly have hands-on experience
with the art and magic of
movie-making.
The attraction is located
within five minutes of 13,500
hotel rooms. Altogether, more
than 64,000 rooms are within
a 30-minute drive of Univer-
sal Studios Florida, near the
intersection of Interstate 4
and the Florida Turnpike, 10
miles southwest of downtown
Orlando. USAir has been des-
ignated the offical air carrier
of the park, and Hertz is the
official rental car.
California: San Francisco,
Los Angeles and San Diego —
one or two or all — continue
to be extremely popular
domestic destinations.
San Francisco offers cable
car rides, a boat tour of the
bay and an underside view of
the Golden Gate Bridge, shop-
ping at Fisherman's Wharf,
the touchy-feely Ex-
ploratorium science museum,
the mystery of Alcatraz and
the legend of its famous
"Birdman," and those incredi-
ble hills that will wear out
even the most energetic kids
by the end of the day. Artsy
Sausalito, Marin County and
the redwoods at Muir Woods
National Monument are good
day trips.
The appeal of the Los
Angeles area includes an in-
side look at movie-making at
Universal Studios, "star" gaz-

ing tours of celebrities'
homes, stepping in famous
footsteps outside Mann's
(Grauman's) Chinese Theater,
window shopping at the
chichi shops on Rodeo Drive
in Beverly Hills, and partak-
ing of superfunky Venice (the
kids will love the roller
skating). Nearby, there's
Orange County, with Knott's
Berry Farm (check out the
replica of Independence Hall
at the entrance), Lion Coun-
try Safari, and, of course, that
original brainstorm, Disney-
land.
In San Diego, there's the
wonderful zoo, as well as Sea
World, which will bore only
the most snooty adult. A day
trip to Mexico is a nice
change of pace.
The California Parlor Car
'Iburs are popular bus tours in
and around the state, includ-
ing The Pacific Coast and
Hearst Castle (three days);

Orlando's newest
theme park,
Universal Studios
Florida, will open
in May 1990.

Lake Tahoe, Yosemite, Coast
and Hearst Castle (six days);
San Diego Experience (one or
three days); and others.
Several of the Parlor Car
Tours connect San Francisco
with Los Angeles, which
beats driving that treacher-
ous oceanside route with a
carful of antsy kids.
Williamsburg, Virginia:
The Colonial Williamsburg
restoration is one of the best
places in America to assimi-
late history painlessly. This
was a hotly political town, in
which Patrick Henry deliv-
ered his famous Stamp Act
speech ("If this be treason,
make the most of it") where
the Second Continental Cong-
ress was boldly instructed by
Virginia to propose indepen-
dence, and where George
Mason's Declaration of
Rights, which became the
basis for the first 10 amend-
ments to the Constitution,
were adopted.
You can get a feel for that
period of time by strolling
Williamsburg's streets, visit-
ing restored buildings that
are often manned by people in
period costumes, and watch-
ing Colonial activities such as
firearms demonstrations and
gathering on the green, etc. A
variety of escorted tours, in-
cluding several designed for
children, are available.
The kids will put up with
historic Colonial Williams-
burg if you promise to spend
time at Busch Gardens, "The
Old Country." Busch Gardens
is an elaborate theme park

featuring "Oktoberfest," plus
a recreated German Village,
and English, French, Italian
and Scottish villages.
Each area has rides, shows,
live entertainment and res-
taurants. Transportation
around the grounds is by
monorail, sky lift, paddle-
boats or steam train. There
are also animal acts, musical
review and magic shows, ar-
cades, an antique carousel
and lots of "screamer" rides,
including the Loch Ness Mon-
ster, which separates the men
from those of us with weak
stomachs.
Boscobel Beach, Ocho
Rios, Jamaica: This resort is
geared for families and caters
to the needs of both children
and adults. Operating with
the philosophy that a family
who plays together, stays
together, Boscobel Beach pro-
vides together time for a
family, but also provides
supervised activities for
children at the Mini Club,
supervised by staff "Super-
nannies." Youngsters can dine
with their parents or eat with
new friends at a different
time.
Parents, on the other hand,
can relax on the beach located
on a private cove, or indulge
in a wide range of water-re-
lated activities, day trips or
nightlife. 'Activities include
tennis, water polo, water ski-
ing, wind surfing, sailing,
volleyball, a fully equipped
gym, snorkeling, scuba, bicy-
cles, pool, Jacuzzi, aerobics,
golf, indoor games room,
pedal boats, disco and piano
bar.
Even the accommodations
support this balance of
togetherness and separate
times. Junior suites comes
with a king-sized bed area, a
sunken living area and a ter-
race that overlooks the
gardens and sea. The queen-
sized sofa in the living area
turns into the kids' bed.
Children under 14 who share
your room come for free.
The price for a Boscobel
Beach vacation includes ac-
commodations, three meals
daily including table wine
with lunch and dinner, all bar
drinks and cigarettes, par-
ticipation in live entertain-
ment and events, excursions
(including Dunn's River Falls,
shopping trip to Ocho Rios
and Plantations tour) and use
of all sports equipment and
facilities (with services of
instructors).
The Mini Club is also in-
cluded and covers a computer
workshop, scuba lessons, a
movie theater, activities, a
mini-zoo bicycles, disco, video
games, pony rides, picnics,
arts and crafts and Supernan-
nies.
