This Spring, Transport Your Family To Disney’s Pandora- The World Of Avatar

This Spring, Transport Your Family To Disney’s Pandora- The World Of Avatar

on Mar 2, 2018 |

    Wow, just wow! This is one of the MOST amazing lands of the Disney World Theme Parks, my family has EVER visited! My family and I were invited to explore Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom, more specifically, the new Pandora-The World Of Avatar.       I grabbed my 2 oldest girls, 11 and 9, and headed out for a day of exploring Disney’s Animal Kingdom. I love going to Walt Disney World and checking out all they have to offer, especially when there is something new to share with you all. I will be completely honest, I haven’t been to Disney’s Animal Kingdom in 9 years and A LOT has changed. More recently, Disney has added Pandora-The World Of Avatar. This new land in Animal Kingdom is barely a year old and so popular, that you must plan on using Disney FastPass+ Experience.     The older girls and I were so excited to enter Animal Kingdom, we could barely contain ourselves. Upon entering this beautifully, lush theme park, your family is immediately greeted with an amazing photo opportunity, The Tree Of Life. This tree is spectacular and has really amazing, animal carvings. My daughters and I loved looking at the tree to see how many animals we could spot! Plan on staying through the evening because you don’t want to miss “Tree Of Life Nighttime Awakening”.   An All-New Nighttime Experience Watch in wonder when the animal spirits within the great tree awaken during a mesmerizing showcase of color and light.

After night falls, pay special attention to the Tree of Life at the center of Disney’s Animal Kingdom park. Approximately every 10 minutes, flickering fireflies magically appear and stir to life the wondrous animals spirits carved into the tree’s towering trunk—bringing to light a stunning visual swarming with vivid color and animated imagery. Gaze upon a graceful young doe embarking upon a thrilling journey. Behold love blossoming between a pair of hummingbirds. See a spry fox spreading gifts of love among the denizens of a wintry forest. A feast for the eyes, each revelation celebrates...

The littles and I were so excited to venture into the Magic Kingdom and explore all of the special event offerings.     Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party requires a special event ticket, in which adult prices start at $89.00 each and $84.00 per child. This special event is worth every penny! There are only a limited number of tickets sold, which means the park rides have very little lines or waits. Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party allows attendants to gain entrance to the Magic Kingdom beginning at 4:30 pm. It is at this time, you are guided down the Merry Christmas path to enjoy many decorations, photo opportunities, and a giant Santa cookie!       Then you are off and get to enjoy the park. The excitement builds when you slowly see the daily-attendance, Disney guests exit the park and you get to stay and play.     Be sure to tell the kiddos to save up their allowance. Disney always goes all out on their Holiday hats, necklaces, and collectibles.           Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is an absolute delight.

Looking For Something Spooktacular To Do This Fall?

on Sep 25, 2017 |

  It is officially Fall and there are plenty of fun activities to enjoy in central Florida. I was invited to bring the family to Sea World’s Halloween Spooktacular 2017 event. This fun, not scary, family-friendly event is being held at Sea World Orlando every weekend from September 23 – October 29, 2017 and is included with park admission.             This super cute, under-the-sea inspired Halloween event has so much to offer for every age. From trick-or-treating to hula hooping, my girls (and me) were definitely entertained for hours. You are encouraged to join in on the fun at Sea World’s Spooktacular by wearing costumes, but no masks please. If you don’t want to dig out your trick-or-treat pumpkins, Sea World is handing out adorable bags to fill with all of that tasty loot!               Plan on spending most of your day at Sea World, because for an additional cost, you can eat breakfast in Halloween style with some of Sesame Street’s most popular characters. A wonderful, breakfast buffet hosted by Count Von Count has a delicious assortment of breakfast foods and treats to enjoy. This breakfast buffet is located at the air conditioned Sea Fire Grill, no need to worry about being uncomfortable in the Florida heat, while you are indulging in some amazing breakfast eats.             While eating and anticipating the Halloween events of the day, you can snap photos with some of the Sesame Street stars such as Cookie Monster, Rosita, Elmo, and The Count. There is also an adorable little, musical Halloween number the loveable monsters perform on stage. All of my girls loved the buffet and meeting their favorite characters. You truly never grow out of Sesame Street. I still have a big soft spot for Cookie Monster. This addition to your fun-filled day at Sea World’s Spooktacular will cost you $19.99 per adult (10+) and $9.99 per child (3-9), kids under 3 eat free but require a reservation.               Here is a list of all Spooktacular has to share with you and your family this year.
