A Little Slice of Paradise at the Marco Island Marriott in Florida

As I write this, I’m dreaming of the Gulf of Mexico sunsets from our room at the Marco Island Marriott that we left just last week.  Look how glorious this view was from our gulf side room: My family and I did not take it for granted that this was our view every night for […]

Don’t Leave Home without Your Amusement Park App!

When we hit Disneyworld back in April, I was all about the My Disney Experience App.  I hadn’t heard of it but while waiting in line to get into Epcot, saw a little ad for it and I did a quick download.  It was our saving grace!  The smart phone app includes all sorts of […]

Great Pools & Location at the Renaissance Sea World Hotel @RenSeaWrldHotel

When I first tweeted out that I was saying at the Renaissance Sea World with my family, I got a response from someone that said, “have a blast! Best pools for kids in the entire Orlando area!” We hadn’t even been to the pools yet and I haven’t been to every pool in Orlando so […]

Having just returned from a trip to Orlando, I had to first write about our favorite theme park all week – LEGOLAND Florida! As huge Lego fans, it’s no surprise this was the family favorite. First things first – LEGOLAND Florida is not in Orlando. In fact, it’s a good 45 minute drive south of […]

Orlando Restaurant Review: T-Rex in Downtown Disney

Have boys, or young kids, and looking for a fun spot to eat in downtown Disney? On a recent trip to Orlando, I went with the fam to T-Rex Cafe in Downtown Disney. If you’ve ever been to a Rainforest Cafe, you’ll get the gist of this restaurant. It’s a prehistoric-theme decor that comes to […]

How to Beat the Crowds at Disney During Spring Break: A Site Recommendation

The kids don’t know it yet, but we’re headed down to Orlando in a week and a half.  It was a relatively last minute trip; the stars aligned for us to visit the Omni Champions Gate (hotel in Orlando) and to take the kids to see some of the sites. Hubby and I quickly decided that […]
