Rainy, Rainy

This is the season for rain every afternoon in Orlando. If you are planning a trip to Disney or Universal I recommend bringing poncho’s. You can also buy them at any of the parks in case you forget them. No matter what the weather, the parks are such fun and we visit them rain or shine. The only time we ensure we are under cover is when the lightening starts. That is the one thing in Florida that is very, very dangerous and you don’t want to be out in the weather during lightening storms.

If you are one of those travelers who likes to plan ahead for any possibility take a look at some of the fun ponchos you can get on Amazon. These are often not available at the parks as once the rain starts, many of these will sell out and you will be among the generic poncho travelers. If you like to stand out and look a little different or if you are a fashionista, take a look at the variety that is available.
These are also great going away gifts for grandparents to give to their grandchildren who may be going to the park.

If you prefer umbrellas, Disney has a great variety of fun ones for you and your young Disney Fans. You can use them at the park and take them home with you as well. The cars umbrella is a fun one for little boys.

Disney Cruise

Are you looking to go on a Disney Cruise. My oldest son and his family will be on a seven day cruise next week and it is a wonderful opportunity for the whole family to relax and enjoy a vacation with no interruptions. My son favors the days at sea as they are incredibly relaxing and everything is planned for the children’s events and adult activities as well. If you are true Disney Cruise Fan, you might want to find some great collectibles in the Shop. DCL Disney Cruise Line Vinylmation 3" inch Wonder Ship Figure Unopened My favorites are the Vinylmations which are great souvenirs to bring back to remind you of the great experiences on your cruise. If you don’t get a chance to purchase some items, look in the shop to see if you can order one here, or let me know and I will try to find the Disney item for you. I love shopping Downtown Disney and the Character outlets in Orlando.

What do I like about cruises? The opportunity to relax, to swim or sit in the hot tub and enjoy wonderful food and entertainment. To spend time with my grandchildren and children where you can choose excitement or quiet. If you have never been on a cruise, consider it and think about visiting Disney World and a Disney Cruise combination package. What an awesome experience.

If you are looking for a great agency to provide you with quality assistance and care in helping plan your cruise, contact DestinationsinFlorida.com.

I have been on several cruises and always get home wishing I had purchased one more T-shirt, hat or souvenir. If you find yourself wishing you had purchased a Disney item, or if you just enjoy Disney check out the Shop for some fun selections. Don’t forget the molds as they are such fun. Disney Parks Mickey Ears Silicon Muffin Mold (Red) - Disney Parks Exclusive & Limited Availability We used these for our last adventure into making bath bombs. Such fun to have a Mickey bath bomb and the fragrance was absolutely great in that we used Jasmine and Peppermint essential oils.

Pastie

Have you ever had a beef pastie?  These are a favorite fare of those who live in Northern Michigan.  When I was a child I had them when I went to visit my Grandfather in Ironwood, Michigan. He had a cabin on Manitowish Waters and I sure wish I owned it today.  I could drive from Detroit and enjoy the north country on the way.  But alas, I live in Florida and work in Detroit and there is no family cottage in Michigan anymore.  But the pastie’s still exist and I had one last night at Dobskis in a Detroit suburb..could have been Waterford.  Anyway it was great food and great memories.  I wonder if Universal would include this on one of their menu’s or perhaps Disney would at one of the parks.  Is there a Poland in Epcot?  Want to go see then go to http://www.orlandotickets.securedstore.com and pick a ticket package.

Cold

Wow, the weather is getting cold in Florida but even colder in Detroit.  I woke up to frost on the ground this morning.  Think I would rather be visiting Disney World, Epcot, MGM or Universal Islands of Adventure.  My oldest son was a project manager on the building of the Islands of Adventure.  Think about the wonderful stories he will have to tell his daughter and son.  Planning to go their, be sure to visit our ticket site and travel site at destinationsinflorida.com.  And now on to the day.

Fun

David Ledeux had a post today that indicated only 20% of the people have fun every week.  What are we doing if we are not having some fun in our lives?  Seems to me we are missing out on the better part of life.

If you haven’t seen the Disney Adventures, you might want to go to destinationsinflorida.com and take a look.  If you haven’t been to Europe, I would suggest this is one of the premier ways to tour.  If you have been there, you will find a tour beyond your wildest dreams.  One thing about Disney, they know how to do things right.
