Florida Fun

Leave a Comment

Out of all our adventures so far this summer I have to say the look on Peanut and Sprout faces when we arrived at Disney World was the best! 

We thought we would share details of our stay in Florida and answer the FAQ we get on insta and comments so here is everything we did!
Where we stayed

 We stayed at an amazing villa in Orlando,FL that we found on HomeAway.comWe spent little over a week there and enjoyed ever second of it. The villa was bout a 15 minute drive to the amusement park. There's nothing wrong with the Disney Resorts it just wasn't the best option for my family since we had about 15 people going we needed space but also wanted to be nearby each other.  The villa was also a lot cheaper for us it cost us about $200 per household for a week stay, can't beat that!! The villa had 7 rooms, 4 bathrooms (2 private), a full kitchen, movie theater and the best part was, it had a pool and a hot tub! Overall it was nice to have our own space, which is what I love about HomeAway.

How we got around

There is some much to see and do in Orlando, FL. Majority of our time was spent at the Disney amusement park but we also spent a day at Legoland which is about an hour drive from our villa.  So we rented a mini van, which was perfect. I would definitely recommend it. The freedom of a rental car is so nice. Our Villa was 30 minutes away from the airport and 15 minutes away from Disney World, the grocery store was 5 minutes away in a shopping center with restaurants, souvenir shops and ATMs.  Overall our villa was a great location because it was central enough to be able to get to most of places easily and quickly by car.

What we did

I definitely recommend booking any dinners, shows, or attractions you want to see as soon as possible. Disney offers you the option to book these things at least 6 months in advance, which is wise because spaces fill up quickly! Since it was Peanut and her cousin birthdays we wanted them to experience "Dining with the Princess" which is a experience I know Peanut will never forget. We literally got our reservations by the skin of our teeth because someone cancelled and we booked 6 months in advance.  Legoland was a BLAST! It was 100F that day so majority of our time was spent in the water park. But there is so much too do water park, roller coasters oo and the pirate show is highly recommended.
It was one of those things that we’ll always remember.
