Prepare for fun and lots of interaction with Donald, Mickey, Minnie, Chip and Dale, and all the other characters of Disney. Autograph books are a must so each character can sign your child’s book when it comes to your table. I have four children: 7, 12, 14, and 15, and each had a blast. The all-you-can-eat food bar is 100 feet long, so you won't go away hungry. Pictures are taken with Chef Mickey as you enter and are ready for purchase before you leave your table. You can watch the monorail run through the contemporary hotel right above your head as you eat your meal, and then you can get on the monorail to go to Disney Magic Kingdom or any other park at Disney. Your children w...Read More

Walking down the streets of the Magic Kingdom, you can choose which land you want to explore. For older kids, there’s Tomorrowland with Space Mountain and Alien Encounter is great, along with Adventureland with Thunder Mountain. Whatever land you choose, you will find a nice variety of rides, some for the small children and some for the older children. Nothing boring or even old. I had went to Disney when I was 16 (never mind how old I am now) and enjoyed everything just like I did the first time. This is a memory-making trip so don't forget your camera and stay until the Electrical Parade is over at 11pm or midnight. No other parade compares to this one, with lights glowing on every float ...Read More

SeaWorld Orlando

Attraction | "Sea World"

Quote:
Two great rides have been added to Sea World: Kraken and Journey to Atlantis. Both are well worth the wait. Both rides will take pictures of you while on the ride and it was so funny to see Mom with hands in the air and laughing, while the "tough teens" held on for dear life and I have the picture to prove it! And don't forget to take a Journey to Atlantis. Go during the hottest part of the day, as you will be completely soaked. But take time to sit down and watch Cirque de la Mer, with their wonderful circus antics, and be sure to arrive on time to watch the mime. It is important to get there really early or you may become his next victim; you will split your side in laughter. ...Read More

Terminator 2 in 3-D will thrill you and scare you – it’s one of the best 3-D movies I have ever seen. In addition to the movie, they have on stage actors and motorcycles. It becomes so realistic that you actually believe that you are in the movie. Calm down a bit with the Back to the Future ride or the best Western Show you will ever laugh through

Daytona Beach

Attraction

Quote:
Watching your husband build a sandcastle with his daughter and then try to out-swim his three teenage boys was a mother’s dream come true. The beaches were great and the children slept on the way back to Orlando. Don't forget the sunscreen. The children were protected by the sunscreen, but Dad forgot his back and had third degree burns.
