Life's No Fun Without a Good 'Not So' Scare

Disney Florida Life Like a Local Travel

When you’re a Floridian, there are certain signs fall is here.  No, it’s not the crisp air or fallen leaves, but rather the Halloween festivities at the theme parks.  Yep, I knew summer was almost at it’s end when I got home from work, on what seemed to be a regular Friday, and changed into my first Halloween costume of the season.

Take a Magical Ride with Me at Disney Springs

Disney Florida Life Like a Local Travel

Disney’s done it again…they’ve added a little more magic to my life. It all began on a beautiful morning, beneath the warm Florida sun.  I climbed into the backseat of a car, but not just any car, an Amphicar.  You may be wondering, what’s an Amphicar.  Well, a car-boat would probably be the best way to describe it.

Just about 20 minutes north of Orlando lies this peaceful oasis of sorts. A perfect relaxing getaway, ideal for unwinding after a busy week.  I was literally forced to unplug since I was without cell service…

Mingling with Celebs at Madame Tussauds

Like a Local Travel

It was a star-studded event, and no I’m not talking about the Met Gala. I’m talking about the premiere of Madame Tussauds in Orlando, Florida. The long-awaited arrival of the popular attraction came on May 4, but I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek and “chat” with some of the famous A-listers prior to the big grand opening? Who were some of my favorites? Well, of course, I was super excited to “meet” Taylor. She was a lot…
