Fun for Less at Fun Spot’s Birthday

Fun Spot’s Birthday Blast will be on June 11th. It will be their 18th one! Finally “legal.” On this day you can purchase tickets for only $18. Nothing like someone else having the birthday, but you get the gift!

Fun Spot’s Birthday Tickets

Fun Spot’s Birthday single-day passes will be available online starting at midnight through 2:00 p.m. EST. If you are at the park, they will be sold from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. These passes will not expire for an entire year, so you can have fun for less whenever you want!

Fun Spot’s Birthday Blast

For $18 you will receive a single day pass that includes all of the rides and Gator Spot (only at the Orlando’s location). The SkyCoaster ride and arcade will require additional expenses, but hey, you’re already saving money. ORLANDO TOURIST TIP: If you have another $18 to spend, check out the photo deal while you’re at the Orlando attraction. The Fun Spot’s Birthday photo deal includes a 4” x 6” photo and 4 wallet-sized photos. Key chains with your photo can be made for an additional $1.99 each. These make excellent souvenirs and help preserve your Orlando vacation.

If you will be attending Fun Spot’s Birthday Blast on June 11th, enjoy the party. There will be entertainment, music, giveaways and more. This Orlando attraction can easily fill the better part of an entire day. Children really love it.

Fun Spot Orlando is located at 5700 Fun Spot Way, Orlando, FL 32819; phone: 407-363-3867. The Kissimmee Fun Spot is located at 2850 Florida Plaza Blvd., Kissimmee FL 34746; phone: 407-397-2509. Both locations offer a lot of fun, however, the Orlando location is still our recommendation (if you have the option of either attraction).

ORLANDO TOURIST TIP: If lodging near or on International Drive, be sure to check out the I-drive trolley as a way to get to Fun Spot. The trolley is one of the best ways to get around this busy tourist area. For just a few dollars, it is a great way to have fun for less – money and hassle!

Spring Training in Florida

Though baseball season isn’t quite here just yet, we have arrived at the next best thing: Spring Training in Florida. Our state is a huge hub for baseball during Spring Training, with fans coming out in droves for the opportunity to see their favorite players warm up for the season— and for the chance to see some of the up-and-coming rookies before they hit the majors. According to, in 2015, over 1.5 million baseball fans headed down to Florida to see their favorite players get ready for the season. That’s a record-breaking amount of people!

Spring Training in Florida featured team logos

Of course, with 15 different major league teams from all over the country spread out over Florida, its no surprise that so many people are flocking down state come March! With Florida’s fair climate year round, March is the perfect time to take a break from the unending northern winter and head down to get some sun during your favorite team’s pre-season games! Here’s a list of the MLB teams that spend Spring Training in Florida and of where you can find them.

  • The Atlanta Braves (Lake Buena Vista)
  • The Baltimore Orioles (Sarasota)
  • The Boston Red Sox (Fort Meyers)
  • The Detroit Tigers (Lakeland)
  • The Houston Astros (Kissimmee)
  • The Miami Marlins (Jupiter)
  • The Minnesota Twins (Fort Myers)
  • The New York Mets (Port St. Lucie)
  • The New York Yankees (Tampa)
  • The Philadelphia Phillies (Clearwater)
  • The Pittsburg Pirates (Bradenton)
  • The St. Louis Cardinals (Jupiter)
  • The Tampa Bay Rays (Port Charlotte)
  • The Toronto Blue Jays (Dunedin)
  • The Washington Nationals (Viera)

Clearly there is a widespread variety of teams and locations, which offers each individual sports fan the opportunity of an experience that is unique to their desires for a Florida vacation. ORLANDO TOURIST TIP: Take advantage of your time in Florida and the location of the teams you decide to watch play! If you are traveling with kids who are itching to see Disney World, consider seeing the Braves in Lake Buena Vista, or the Astros in Kissimmee! If you are aching to get some time in the sand and surf during your trip to Florida, there is a huge variety of teams you can consider who are playing near the coast, with the Red Sox and the Twins both stationed in the same city!

Spring Training in Florida is Highly Recommended

Whether you are a casual baseball fan or a diehard, we definitely recommend Spring Training in Florida. The tickets are typically much, much cheaper than regulation games, and it is a great opportunity to get up close and personal with your favorite players! With the pressure of regulation games off their shoulders and the season only just beginning, the players tend to be a lot more relaxed. Who knows, if you find yourself in the right place at the right time you might end up with an autograph or a photo with your favorite player! Not an easy task during regulation games!

ORLANDO TOURIST TIP: Bring a ball, hat or other souvenir (or a program if available) and a permanent marker, such as a Sharpie. Come early or stay late, because many of the players will gladly autograph your item, especially if your children ask!

Whether you decide to come down purely for the love of the game or more for the weather, we highly recommend at least spending one afternoon at a pre-season game. The combination of the game, the music, and the new and old players, it’s bound to be a good time for every different type of baseball fan you can imagine.

Now, let’s play ball!


Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival: Complete Guide

Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival begins this year on March 2 and runs for 90 days, ending May 30, 2016. This is the longest timeframe yet for this Orlando theme park special event. Last year’s festival lasted 75 days.

If you have a pass which allows entrance into Epcot year-round, this is a nice event to plan around. However, most tourists make their plans and then find out they’ll be attending this theme park during the festival (an extra bonus). Either way, you’ll appreciate this complete guide to the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival and find some great tips.

The Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival itself is included in your ticket, however, some events cost extra, as well as the food at the Outdoor Kitchens. Festival highlights include:

  1. Garden Topiaries (those really cool Disney characters made from living plants)
  2. Outdoor Kitchens (where you can sample some great food)
  3. Music Concerts (free!)
  4. Weekend Events (including great tips for gardeners)

ORLANDO TOURIST TIP: A fun thing to do is to pick up a Garden Passport and collect stamps for several stops. You can check off the topiaries you find, the gardens you visit and the kitchens you purchase food from. The booklets are available at several locations (or download ahead of time) and they make a nice souvenir for your Orlando vacation. The booklet lists foods available, beverages, where to locate gardens and much more! Read on for other fun things to do with children…

As you can read in this complete guide to the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival there is a lot going on during this featured event! It is one of the best times of the year to visit Epcot. Not only is the Orlando theme park extraordinarily beautiful, the flowers and gardens provide more things to see and do. Best of all, most of it is free!

Holy Land Experience Free Day

This year’s Holy Land Experience free day is scheduled for February 24, 2016. For one day out of the year, this Orlando theme park offers free admission into the park. They do this in order to qualify for property-tax exemption status as a religious entity under state law.

This attraction is usually less crowded than other Orlando attractions, however, on this date it will be bustling with guests. ORLANDO TOURIST TIP: Plan to arrive when the park opens at 10:00 a.m. due to possible park closures once capacity of about 2,000 has been reached (and it usually does reach capacity on Holy Land Experience free day).

Attending this park is such a unique way to experience the Bible. Not only the sights will take you over 7,000 miles away and over 2,000 years back in time, but the sounds and tastes will as well. There are shows, shopping and dining all within the theme park.

Holy Land Experience Free Day

The Holy Land Experience is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m., but is closed on Sunday and Monday. Holy Land Experience is also closed on New Year’s Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. If you’d like to attend a Sunday church service, a non-denominational Christian service is offered (Trinity Christian Center) at the Theater of Life (inside the Temple building) in the center of the park. The service begins at 10:30 a.m. ORLANDO TOURIST TIP: All ages are welcome, however, they do not offer a nursery or teen/youth group.

Holy Land Experience Free Day – Save Money

If you will not be attending Holy Land Experience free day, ticket prices are $50 per adult, $35 per child (6-12) and $20 per pre-k child (3-5). If you want to see all of the shows and go through each experience thoroughly, you may want to consider a 2-day ticket ($75/$50/$35). This will allow you to see more of the theatrical presentations. ORLANDO TOURIST TIP: While all of the live entertainment is inspiring, be sure to catch “Passion of the Christ Live Drama.” It is a little lengthly, but very inspirational.

While adults may enjoy this Orlando attraction the most, there are plenty of fun things to do for kids. An entire section of the park is dedicated to youngsters called the Smile of a Child Adventure Land. In the future, a nine-hole miniature golf course will also be featured (completion date T.B.D.). Teenagers have their fun too at the JUCE Explodes Youth Center where at certain times throughout the day they can sing karaoke, participate in a praise dance-off and more.

Enjoy the Holy Land Experience free day, located just off Interstate-4 at 4655 Vineland Road, Orlando, FL 32811. For more information call 407-872-2272, or go to Since the day is free, why not consider a small donation while you are there? I’m sure you will feel blessed!

Complete Guide to Universal Studios Mardi Gras

The Universal Studios Mardi Gras event creates a great atmosphere to visit this Orlando theme park from February through mid-April. Add to it the theme park ticket offer of “buy a two-day ticket, get a third day for free” and you have a real good atmosphere! Plus, the free concerts help make higher attendance weekends more bearable. A two-day, two-park pass is $194.99, so make the most of your visit. Here’s how…

Discounted Theme Park Tickets

First, let’s clarify the ticket deal. The third day free is valid for residents of the U.S. and Canada. The park-to-park tickets let you go to both Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure on the same day. The ticket deal is on sale through April 12, however, April 16 is the last concert of Mardi Gras. All 3 days of your ticket purchase must be used by May 31. Good news is there are no black out dates. If you are a Florida resident only wanting to get in on the Mardi Gras event, there is an “after 5pm” ticket for $69.99 plus tax. Call 407-224-7840 to get the deal, or pay $10 more at the gate.

Best Days to Attend Universal Studios Mardi Gras

If you have the luxury of choosing the days to visit this theme park, check out the concert schedule and find the artist performing that you enjoy the most. Remember, if they are your favorite, chances are they are a favorite of many others. Use one of your 3 days on this Saturday (or Sunday). Spend the other 2 days that are included with your ticket on a day that is less busy so you can ride the popular attractions without the long lines. Once the parade starts, the attractions and rides close. ORLANDO TOURIST TIP: The least busy days of all during Mardi Gras are the first two weeks of February during week days. Crowds become heavier leading up to Spring Break the last few weeks of March and do not slow down until after mid-April.

Universal Studios Mardi Gras Parade

Mardi Gras Parades

The Universal Studios Mardi Gras parades are held on event nights only. They usually begin at 7:45 p.m. (or earlier depending upon concert schedule) and last approximately 25 minutes. Unfortunately, if you want to see the concert, you may need to skip the parade. It isn’t uncommon for people to start lining up for the best concert viewing several hours before the concert starts. Expect the concerts to be packed. If viewing the parade is more important than the concert, the parade route allows good viewing and bead catching just about anywhere. Hollywood Blvd. and New York are great places for viewing and getting some nice photos. ORLANDO TOURIST TIP: If you have children, stay close to the Little Jester’s Parade viewing area in front of the Brown Derby Hat Shop (near the Terminator 2: 3-D attraction). In the past, this has been a parade stop with special entertainment. The area near the Music Plaza (adjacent to Despicable Me Minion Mayhem) is not as kid-friendly. Regardless of where you view the parade, an early stake-out is required to get front row viewing (at least 45 minutes prior to the parade start).

French Quarter Cuisine

Zydeco Music and Great Food

Be sure to visit the French Quarter Courtyard located in the New York area of Universal Studios Florida near Battery Park. Other performers provide music before the headliner concert and can really get you into the Mardi Gras spirit. While these artists are less-known, many come straight from The Big Easy and offer authentic zydeco music. Enjoy some New Orleans cuisine as you listen. Cajun favorites are available such as beignets, jambalaya or gumbo for about $8 to $10. ORLANDO TOURIST TIP: The Courtyard opens at 4:00 p.m.

Additional Party for Adults

If you are 21 or older and want to continue partying after the Mardi Gras concert, be sure to use your theme park ticket at CityWalk. Your admission ticket to Universal will also get you into clubs that stay open until 2:00 a.m. Stop in at Pat O’Brien’s which is CityWalk’s Mardi Gras headquarters.

Hopefully these pointers will help you get the most out of your days visiting Universal Studios Mardi Gras. It is tagged as “Florida’s Biggest Party” and not to be missed if you are one to “Laissez les bons temps rouler!” – Let the good times roll!
