Orlando Makes Me Smile Contest

One of the best memories from my childhood was our family trip to Orlando, Florida. I was 14 years old and had been wanting to visit Disney World forever! We spent a few days at Disney World and then a day at Universal Studios. Now that I’m a mom, one of the top items on my Wish List is to take my own two daughters to Orlando to see the sights. 

Visit Orlando

Ariane from amotherworld has recently returned from her family vacation to Orlando. She discovered that there is more to do there than just theme parks! I know that’s the first thing I originally thought of too. After reading her post about her trip, I learned about all the interesting and fun things families can do when vacationing in Orlando. I encourage you to check out her post and watch her video about her family’s adventure. They hunted for gators with Boggy Creek Airport Rides, went ziplining at Gatorland and even went skydiving! It gave me so many ideas of what we could do on our vacation!
