Rafter J Bar Ranch

Rafter J Bar Ranch

Camping in Mickeys Backyard

After having a great Disney vacation back in 2015, we decided it was time to visit the happiest place on earth again.  This time however we opted to forgo the typical hotel accommodations in favor of our travel trailer.  The thought of coming back to the campground after a long day at Disney and relaxing outside by the fire seemed like a wonderful option.
