Hobby Shops Near Disneyworld
I'm taking the family to Disneyworld next week. Are there any hobby shops worth driving to in the area? Of course helis are my prime interest, but I have lots of planes/gliders, etc too. As long as it's a "worth driving too place." Any help would be great. Thanks. -Steve

Graves is a pretty good hike from WDW and the traffic is awful.

Better to stay around the pool and check out chicks that fight that traffic.

I've been to Graves, it was the most impressive shop I have ever been to. Now I try to go there every time I'm in Orlando.

I was there a couple of years ago and I remember going to a shop off of Alafaya and Colonial if memory serves me correct. I can't think of the name of it however. If you are staying near WDW, then it would be a pretty long trip but if you are staying on International, it's not too far.

I took the drive to Graves. It was a 15 minute drive from my resort with no traffic.

I was very impressed. There were at least 300 or 400 planes/helis/gliders hanging from the celling. They had tons and tons of stuff in stock.

Again, I was just going to "look around" but, I wound up buying $50 worth of stuff just because it was there...

As a special treat, Bill Graves (the owner) was there and gave me a grand tour. Including a tour of the new building that is under construction. It is almost twice the size of the place there is now!

I would recommend you stop by if you are in the area. -Steve

Oh, by the way... If your going to Disney World, I have some good info for you. It's a little trick we learned by accident while visiting.

When you go to the Magic Kingdom/EPCOT/Disney-MGM Studios/Disney's Animal Kingdom, DO NOT park in "regular" parking area (which cost $9). Instead, go to one of the Disney resort hotels (Grand Floridian, Wildneress Lodge, Contempoary, Polynisiean or the Animal Kingdom Resort) and use the valet parking service (which cost only $7).

You get out of your car and they drive off in your car and park it. Then you walk 50 feet and jump on the Monorail right there at the hotel and go directly to the front gate of any of the Disney parks. Then, after a long day at the park, you just take the Monorail back to the hotel. Walk 50 feet and pay your $7 and the vallet brings your car right to you (in about 2 minutes). I tipped $2 and that equals the $9 of self parking. By the way, there are no crowds for the hotel moonorail.

By doing this, I didnt have to wait in a huge line to pay my $9 to park. Slowwwwly drive with traffic to the parking area. Be told where to park. Walk 3/4 miles throught the blazing heat to get to the parking lot tram. Then have to wait 10 minutes in the sun for the tram. Then have to wait another 10 minutes for the next tram because the first tram was full. Than have to repeat the same thing on the way back after your day at the park. And then have to fight through traffic to exit the one and only exit parking lot exit.
