Reflections Spa

When we travel, we are always on the go and I often forget to leave time for relaxation.  When we go to theme parks in Orlando it often involves crowds, endless lines, and aching feet.  But all that changed when I stepped into Reflections Spa, located in the Lake Buena Vista Resort Village and Spa.  They offer many treatments such as massages, facials, manicures and pedicures.  But the treatments are not your typical ones…they include elements from nature such as stones, warm milk, honey, coconut water, and cane sugar.  Click below to read all about my experience at this spa.

The Lake Buena Vista Resort Village and Spa is an amazing choice when considering accommodations while in Orlando, Florida.  Personally, I feel like a vacation is so much more enjoyable when my family has enough room to spread out.  This resort offers spacious accommodations, great restaurants, and a pool that your kids will flip over.  I don’t know why people would cram into a small hotel room when they have options such as this.

Ripley’s Believe it or Not Odditorium, Orlando

Ripley's Odditoium Orldano mytravelingkids.com

This place is hands-down the weirdest place we’ve ever been to…and we LOVED it! Every room was odder than the last one and you experience hysterical sensory overload as you go from room to room.  There are so many crazy, unexpected items in this museum that I don’t even know where to start.  How about if I take you on a little tour of some of our favorite moments?
