Just back from a 2-week whirlwind of a trip to Miami and Orlando and looking forward to sharing some fantastic family travel experiences with you here at GlobetrottingMama.com and through my stories in The Toronto StarAquaduck kidsIt’s going to take me a little while to get all of the stories together but I wanted to give you a peek at all that those two areas have in store so I’ve put together a quick slideshow for you below.

I also had a chance to chat with Neil and Viv on EZRock Ottawa (Have a listen here ) last week about two amazing new offerings out of Florida: The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and the new Disney Dream cruise ship (Whoopi Goldberg talked about the ship this morning on The View!) .

And if you just need a warm weather laugh on a day when snowstorms are near, have a peek at my ride on the Aquaduck, the first water coaster in the world aboard the Disney Dream. Between my pre-pubescent squealing and the complete dunking I take in the middle, you’re guaranteed to feel better.

The short story: If you haven’t booked time for either of these yet you’re really missing out.

More soon,
