What’s happening in and around the resorts.
Perhaps you’ve received one in the mail – a free ticket to a day at Universal’s two theme parks, Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. Free sounds great! Universal also has a deal whereby children under 9 years old get in free.
Universal is a fun place to be and June 1st a new ride for children is opening at Islands of Adventure. It’s called The High In The Sky Seuss Trolley Train Ride or, alternately, The Seuss Sky Trolley. The name leads me to believe the ride is up in the air although I believe it’s a monorail ride of sorts!
My nieces and nephews love to go to Sea World. They love to touch and feel the dolphins and they can’t seem to get enough of the Shamu Show. I love Sea World, too. Fortunately, Sea World comes to us Florida residents at a great price. All we have to do is pay for a single day’s admission and we can come back all year, until December 31st, on the price of that single day. The promotion is called the Sea World Orlando Fun Card. Next time I go, I’ll get a card!
A very fun thing for the family is the annual Great American Pie Festival in Celebration. This year it’s on the weekend of April 22-23. I have been there when the weather was soggy and it’s still fun. This event is sponsored by Crisco and its highlight is this: for the price of admission there is a pie buffet and you can eat and eat and eat all the slices of pie you want. Not to mention the culinary demonstrations and, of course, the pie-eating contest! Have fun!
