Well, sort of …
Cypress Garden predates Disney World (and all the other Orlando area parks) but is now part of a larger theme park, the latter of which we did have to pay to get into. And well worth the price I may add, too. Retaining the garden added a welcome historic and natural element that weaved through and complemented the rest of the park.
Can you guess the park’s new name?
