Year of The Military Family!

If you are a military family and have not been to Orlando this is the year!!! Disney's 5 day pass is FREE for the military member and only $99 for family members...plus they are good until 23 Dec. 09...you do not have to use them consecutively. Sea World lets military members in for FREE and also up to 3 family members in for FREE....a $300 savings for us. I think that this Hero Salute is wonderful. We thought we would take advantage and have fun in Orlando before we set sail.

We loved all the shows!!!


Tonight for dinner we went to Downtown Disney and ate at Planet Hollywood. We sat right next to Dorothy's dress from the Wizard of Oz. Outside they had 'Jenny' Forest Gumps shrimp boat...Ben and Madi like that movie....they had just seen part of it last night.







Ben and Madi 'driving' navy boats this morning at the Shades Of Green (a military resort on the grounds of The Magic Kingdom).
Tonight Madi and I stayed here in the suite to do laundry and have a movie night while the boys went downtown to see a basketball game....Orlando Magic vs. Los Angles Clippers...what else would you expect from our boys!
Tomorrow we go to Cape Canaveral to board our ship.

For all that you military families give you definitely deserve to go for free. I love Sea World, I can't wait to take my kids there some day, were all getting sick of Lagoon!

Oh that sounds like you all had a blast! I am planning on going to Disney maybe next year...I want to take Lexi but was hoping maybe Spring Break of next year and she would be I think just the right age...she would be 5 1/2 then...have fun and loved seeing all the pics...yep think I would have styed in the Suite also instead of a game.

You and the kiddos look great and so happy! Hope you had your sea legs ready...I can't wait to hear about your cruise girly!
Those pics look familiar~ I took advantage of the free military entrance to Sea World, too, and took Bryce when Jason was deployed. We had a blast and the dolpin area and shows were our fav parts, too! B got a kick out of seeing your B and M doing the same things when I showed him!
xo, Les

When we were at disney over Christmas there were a lot of military families. I think that is awesome what they are both doing and a very small thank you for the incredible sacrifice that military families give. Thank not only your husband for his service but also your family for being right there beside him. He couldn't do it without you.
