I don’t think my kids realize how lucky they are. Not only are we leaving town for a spontaneous vacation–we get to check out all kinds of amazing attractions in the Kissimmee/Orlando area as I blog for the Kissimmee Visitors and Convention Bureau. Be sure to check out their website with stories of our adventures as well as other families who have made great memories in the area.
We packed up the car and headed out on our ‘road trip’. Although we don’t have to travel very far, it felt like we were leaving for a cross country trip. The kids had the backseat full to the brim with lots of non-electronic distractions (the electronic ones are only allowed on really far trips) and we even got to stop in at Starbucks for breakfast snacks. Only on vacation do the kids get chocolate milk and sweet muffins for breakfast.
We are so excited to be getting out of town. It has been awhile and we need a few days to recharge and de-stress. OK, so I need that. The kids just want to have fun. And fun, we will have. We will be doing so much and seeing so many cool attractions and I’ll be writing about all of them right here. We plan to visit Legoland Florida, Gaylord Palms Hotel (an attraction in itself), Florida Eco-Safaris, Cirque Du Solei, The Blue Man Group, Medieval Times, as well as the theme parks. Not to mention time to just relax by the pool, to sleep in and to eat some great food.
