How Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge is Different Than The Rest of Walt Disney World

There's been much ado about Star Wars Galaxy's Edge (or Star Wars Land, for short). Rightfully so, an immersive theme park land dedicated to one of the most beloved movie franchises of all time is something many of us have dreamed of for decades, way before Harry Potter, in fact. The wand boy and his… Continue reading How Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge is Different Than The Rest of Walt Disney World

But once this list published on Orlando Date Night Guide I quickly realized I had a new mission. This list has now become my personal mission. I want to visit each of… Continue reading My New Mission: Central Florida’s Best Parks

One Reason to Visit Epcot ASAP

After this summer Epcot will never be the same. Epcot will soon be full of attractions based on Disney and Marvel characters. The days of Epcot teeming with scientific and cultural experiences are fading. One remnant of Epcot's former glory is its current nighttime finale: IllumiNations - Reflections of Earth. After this summer this fireworks… Continue reading One Reason to Visit Epcot ASAP

Goodbye, Downtown Orlando

Downtown Orlando, with its energy, character, and frustrating design, is an interesting place in which to work. The dining options are nearly endless, there's plenty of paths to take for a refreshing lunch time walk, there's perhaps even a certain prestige that comes from saying "I work in downtown Orlando." But it is not without… Continue reading Goodbye, Downtown Orlando

The time has finally arrived. My little son is old enough to start venturing out with us for a few hours on weekends; we couldn't wait to take him to his first theme park. And while we have access to all four Walt Disney World theme parks, we knew his first one had to be… Continue reading Why we chose Animal Kingdom as the first Disney theme park with our baby

Downtown Orlando’s fusion hot spot takes tiki in a different direction

Church Street Station is hallowed ground, especially for long time Orlando residents like me. Memories of Rosie O'Grady's and Cheyenne Saloon still seep from the walls and brick laden street. And for quite some time this once iconic part of downtown Orlando seemed like a ghost town. Now things have changed. Nearly every available space… Continue reading Downtown Orlando’s fusion hot spot takes tiki in a different direction

I had to do this one theme park thing before giving birth

My pregnancy has flown by. It's a little difficult to believe that in maybe 3-4 weeks time our baby will be here and it all changes from there. So with the big day looming ahead (not that I dread it, I truly am excited for this) I knew I had to do something special while… Continue reading I had to do this one theme park thing before giving birth

Main Event bowls us over at Pointe Orlando 

It's hard to believe that I have been visiting Pointe Orlando for about fifteen years now. This shopping and dining complex has evolved over the years and perhaps has some more changes to go through. However, the collection of restaurants is top notch and a great selection for its main clientelle: those that are in… Continue reading Main Event bowls us over at Pointe Orlando

Frosty’s Christmastime Lounge: Naughty or Nice?

Some businesses can only exist in Orlando. Really, it's hard to imagine many other cities that could be home to a year-round Christmas themed lounge. Frosty's Christmastime Lounge opened just two weeks ago and it is instantly one of the most talked about establishments in Orlando. The theme Christmas covers every corner. It is quirky… Continue reading Frosty’s Christmastime Lounge: Naughty or Nice?
