4. Cruise Europe with Disney
While a Caribbean Disney cruise sounds lovely, a Mediterranean or Norwegian cruise may take the cake. Disney will put together a trip to fit your schedule, but be sure to entertain one of the European variety. The Norwegian jaunt takes guests to Kristiansand, Stavanger, Alesund, and Oslo. As for the Mediterranean cruise, guests have the privilege of exploring the ancient ruins in Rome, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, Tuscan countrysides, and of course sparkling sea waters.

5. Watch baby hippo Augustus grow
As you probably know, Disney’s Animal Kingdom is quite the lively berth, but with the recent arrival of baby hippo Augustus, it’s practically a zoo. The hippo is the first baby to be born in the park since 2005, and I must tell you that he is positively precious. While the Animal Kingdom is burgeoning with the wildest of creatures, watching the circle of life unfold right in the park is a marvelous site.

The pre-season home games offer numerous opportunities to make the trip down to Florida, and if you miss this year, rest assured the team will be back next year.
