Lake Russell at the Disney Wilderness Preserve
One stop we made during our Florida trip was to the Disney Wilderness Preserve, which was quite a treat for us. We enjoyed walking on the trails, especially when the trail wandered over to Lake Russell. I just love views like this, and I don’t know how many different photos I took just in this one location, not to mention elsewhere on the trails.
Despite it’s name, the Disney Wilderness Preserve isn’t owned by Disney, and it isn’t at Walt Disney World. The land was donated by Disney to the Nature Conservancy, which is working to restore it back to its natural condition, and it is about 45 to 50 minutes away from Walt Disney World. If you like nature trails and being outdoors, this just might be for you.
