Had higher expectations, unfortunately only the views of lake Russell are of interest and beauty. The rest of the 6+ mile hike is in the open with absolutely no wildlife. And no real scenery to enjoy. They should have taken the trail around the lake which would have been just wonderful. Trust me when i say other who have posted... More

This is a free attraction of easy hiking and animal watching. The land is a preserve of natural Florida terrain that the Disney Corporation and the State of Florida maintain jointly. When you arrive into the parking area you are directed to a sign in welcome center where you'll receive a trail map and any information you need to walk... More

Nobody does it like Disney. We had friends here and they had a great time. There was a lot of people but they have the people to handle it. The food and the atmosphere is great.

Let me start by saying I love to hike and I love to take nature photos. This was a major disappointment. We have county parks in Clearwater, FL that are nicer. This wilderness preserve was scrub land. There really was nothing to see. No animals, no birds. Nothing. It was totally flat, open field with almost no trees and knee... More

Some people seem to confuse this the Disney theme park. It comes under the Nature Conservancy and is near Poinciana, FL about 15 miles south of Kissimmee. About 12000 acres of protected land and you can see a small portion of this peaceful area. Once you enter it there is a one and a half mile drive to the visitor... More

If you are tried of all the noise and people and need to get a cleansing breath and relax, this is the place. It is a preserve with trails, we took the one to the lake. Love it sit down and just unwind, watch to water sway and enjoy the cypress knees and try to figure out what their job... More

If you enjoy gatting out and just wandering round taking in the natural sights and sounds - this is as un-disney as it gets! Loved the tranquillity and awesome beauty - lakes, trees, mangrove swamps creatures and critters galore - including fire ants!!!!!!
