You can’t always get back to your resort, but if you’re traveling with kids under 5, you’ll need to find a few quiet places to relax and let them nap. Even kids who do not usually nap may fall asleep during the day at Disney; there is just so much to see and do that it can get overwhelming and tiring, fast.
I always pack a sling for babies and toddlers, but the rides listed in this piece for TripSavvy include railways, monorails and quiet shows without time restraints. There’s something from every park and you can sit and relax in many of these places as long as you’d like. Some rides, like the railways, allow you to stay onboard as long as you’d like, so they are also good choices.
February is one of my favorite times to visit the Orlando theme parks, and Universal is no exception. The weather is comfortable, crowds are often thin and you can see and do pretty much anything in town without a huge amount of waiting.
While this is a great time of year to visit if you want to avoid crowds, there are some big events at Universal that can draw huge crowds; either plan on attending or work around them and expect longer wait times.
It’s shaping up to be one of those weeks — the good kind! Lots of fun topics this week, some research into a nerdy tech topic I’ll enjoy and a roundup of web pages for small businesses ranging in location from right here in South Carolina to wayyyy down under in Australia.
Just a few fun things I’m working on this week, or 13 more reasons I love my job!
Thanksgiving Decoration Roundup (curated guest blog for a major home improvement retailer, watch for it in October, similar to this one on table decor last year). I love seasonal pieces like this because they put me in the right frame of mind to decorate my own home, I’ll have to make a run to the state farmer’s market here and pick up a big pile of pumpkins soon…until then, I’ve got the Halloween stuff ready to go:
Some fun pieces on the business and technology of drones. Very interesting stuff on the responsibility and liability of drone usage and what happens when you use a drone in your business…I am anxiously watching the skies for drone deliveries after researching these…
More travel articles, always a favorite, this time I am covering one of my top theme park destinations for toddlers for an inflight magazine. (This one is pretty much done, I just like to let them sit for a week or so and then do a final read-through before sending them off to the editor, just in case). 2 other magazine queries were approved this week as well, so I’m finalizing some travel and interview details, too.
Rounding the week out with a host of web-pages for some up and coming businesses. I love these, because they allow me to spend some time learning more about a specific industry and helping my client succeed. The Home, Landing, About and product/service detail pages are the backbone of any good website, so getting these to be just right is a challenge and a privilege. I’m always thrilled see a new site or rebrand launch and to be a part of the process!
This week, I’m writing pages of content for an emergency veterinarian, James Hardie Siding contractor, a commercial HVAC business and a (sadly not local) martial arts studio.
Not a blogging heavy week, but lots of fun pieces to keep me occupied!
