Happy International Sloth Day

Life Like a Local Travel

Following a few very busy weeks, I’ve begun to channel my inner sloth. So, in honor of International Sloth Day, I will be celebrating by taking a nap, eating dinner and then promptly getting back in bed. If there is any day where you can get the okay to be lazy, today is that day! And once you are all rested up, head to Wild Florida in Kissimmee, Florida and experience a real life sloth encounter of your very own.…

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. I could easy be a character from “A Bug’s Life” which made it perfectly fitting for trick-or-treating at…

Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival on a Budget (Literally!)

Travel

So, funny story…my fiancé and I decided a couple weeks ago to check out Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival.  We had been once before, of course a week early, so we didn’t have a chance to try any of the fresh food and cocktails available at the outdoor kitchens throughout the park. I had already scoured social media and decided exactly what I wanted to try. Just as we were about to drive through the gates of Epcot, my fiancé…

Marsh Landing Adventures: Experience Real Florida

Life Travel

A view like this is worth waking up early for. Waking up early has never been easy for me, but I can’t complain when my morning consists of gliding across the headwaters of the Everglades on an airboat ride with Marsh Landing Adventures.   There is something so relaxing and peaceful about an airboat ride; maybe it’s the fresh air or maybe it’s the spectacular views.  Well, no matter what it is, I know that after being on my fair share of…

Eating and Drinking Around the World

Life Travel

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again… That is definitely my plan when it comes to Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. This weekend I ventured forth to conquer the world, but the world kind of conquered me. It was unseasonably hot and the 4-5 drink stops (I can’t really remember) started to do a number on this out-of-practice foodie. I need a little time to warm up, so even though Food & Wine conquered me this time,…

Experiencing Lake Charles, Louisiana #TMSLakeCharles

Life Travel

I’m spending the week in Lake Charles, Louisiana for Travel Media Showcase where I will be sharing exciting news out of Experience Kissimmee. So far, it’s been an adventure getting here but I finally made it. Our famous Orlando thunderstorms decided to show off last night as I was getting ready to head out and delayed my flight causing me to miss my connection.  I did get to spend the night in Houston, TX for the first time though. So…

Westgate Town Center at Disney's Doorstep #wgtowncenterweekend

Travel

Another great thing about staying at Westgate Town Center is that you are literally just minutes from Walt Disney World.  After a fun day at the resort, my fiancé and I hopped in the car and in a little less than 10 minutes we were parking at Disney. It took us longer to take the monorail into the park than to drive from the resort to Disney. We made it just in time for the new ‘Celebrate The Magic’ show at…
