Just in time to de-frost, I will be taking a 4-day trip to sunny Orlando, FL. Invited by the lovely people of Orlando/Orange County Convention & Visitors Bureau, Inc. and the Loews Royal Pacific Hotel, I will be joining another small group of blogger to tour some of Orlando’s most exciting and fun attractions. And I will be taking my 12-year old with me. I know, lucky kid…should probably have write a few articles himself, huh?
We will enjoy the luxury and beauty of the South Pacific offered at the 1,000-room Loews Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando. From lush tropical landscapes to refreshing waterfalls, this exotic resort will have what they promise will make us feel relaxed in no time, something I look forward to for sure! I’m also looking forward to the lagoon-style pool, checking out their kid-friendly Royal Bali Sea interactive play area.
Our itinerary is an busy one and I am excited to share all we do with you. With visits to popular destinations such as Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Gatorland, Seaworld Orlando, and Universal Studio Orlando, this promises to be a fun trip for sure.
Orlando has changed tremendously over the years, the development has the city expanding more and more, and new businesses have also helped to change the landscape of the Orlando I once lived in. When my family first moved to Orlando there was hardly anything around, and to visit Orlando now you will find something to do for the whole family easily.
Outside of the parks, Orlando offers a charming and vibrant downtown, with concert halls, restaurants, and shops, just to name a few. My favorite hang out back then was along the Lake Eola Park. It’s a wonderful place to picnic, take a stroll, and even catch some free concerts. I also always enjoyed the nightlife in Universal Studios Citywalk,not sure if we will check it out during this trip, but if you are visiting the Orlando area this is definitely a fun place to visit at the end of the day.
Really, I could go on and on about all the fun stuff to do in Orlando, but I just really want to encourage you to venture outside the parks and resorts and get to know more of the great city. Definitely count on us to share with you the adventures we have during this trip so that you get an idea why it’s such a great family vacation destination. I have a lot of great memories of Orlando and for me, it is actually true that Orlando Makes Me Smile!
