I suggest two things:

http://orlandokartcenter.com/

http://www.gatorland.com/

I have been to both, they a lot fun and only use a half of day each.

I had wanted to do Gaylord Ice but there's absolutely NO time for me. I think it looks like it may be worth a visit. Tell me....how does it feel to have a free day in Florida? lol! Of course, if it were me and I had a whole free day I would be tempted to drive to Tampa for a little beach time!

Mt. Dora is a nice little town to visit about 45 mins from WDW. Here's a little review I did in my PTR.

The trick or treating at the park, I didnt know you could go in town..we have done it the last 2 times we went to Disney in December since we cant fit in Candylane.

We stopped spur of the moment a few months ago and did chocolate world and the 3D move...it was silly but fun to just be spontaneous.

I'm about 2 to 2 1/2 hrs away depending on which route I take lol.

Adding myself to the December roll call! DH and I are arriving 12/1 and staying in a Little Mermaid room at the Art of Animation until 12/6 when we depart for two days at Universal before heading home. This is my first December trip and I'm super excited!

Don't know if Busch Gardens is open still or not during the time you are there. But that may also be an option.

Well this is the 6th or 7th trip for DH and I and this time we are renting a car. I have one day where we only have a morning ADR (at Chef Mickeys!) and nothing else planned. Yes, we could hit a park, but I want to hit the road one day.

For some reason your PTR link connects me to a Craigslist article titled
Indie Rock band needs Vocal Harmonies (Fort Lauderdale)

OMG you are sooooo right. If I've ever heard actual justification to frivolously spend money, thats it

I hadn't even thought of that. There is no way I can wear previously-worn Disney t-shirts ... in years to come when I will already be confused over nothing in particular I won't know which vacay was which

Thanks. I'm going to my husband with this thought process right now
