  • Blog Post: Getting A-head at Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party

    As you walk through Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom these days and encounter all of those construction fences for the Fantasyland expansion project it's kind of hard to imagine what this part of the theme park will look like in just a few years. But me? I can't help but look at the attractions...
  • Blog Post: Chill out this summer by visiting Universal & Disney's winter-themed attractions

    It's the last week of July here in Central Florida. So - what a surprise - it's hot outside. If you're looking to beat the heat during your next Orlando vacation, might I suggest that you employ a little psychology? As in: It might seem cooler outside if you deliberately went to part of a...
  • Blog Post: A Time of Change for Orlando Theme Parks

    With just hours to spare ‘til 2009 gives way to 2010, I thought that it might be interesting to review the year from the Orlando Fun Tickets point-of-view. 2009 got off to a pretty fast start with tens of thousands of runners pouring into the area January 8 – 11th to take part in the Walt Disney World...
  • Blog Post: Going from “Boo!” to Blue at the Universal Orlando Resort

    Still working your way through the last of the Halloween candy, eh? Well, before we all totally transition away from trick-or-treating to Turkey Time, I’ll share a Halloween Horror Night-related story that you may have missed. Copyright 2009 Universal Orlando.

  • Blog Post: Do you ever wonder what became of Splendid China Florida?

    What with Pleasure Island closing this weekend, I've been getting nostalgic for some of the other attractions that Central Florida lost over the years. With perhaps the most bizarre being Splendid China . I don't know how many of you ever got the chance to visit this 76-acre theme park during the 10...
  • Blog Post: September's the very best time to sea ... er .. see SeaWorld Orlando

    You hear that? All over Orlando, the people who work at your favorite theme parks are now heaving a sign of relief. The summer season -- with all its heat, crush & crowds -- is finally over. Which gives us all a bit more breathing room down here. And I mean that literally, folks. When you drop by...
  • Blog Post: How does Aquatica stack up against Central Florida's other waterparks ?

    You'll have to forgive any typos that you find in this month's OFT column. You see, I've been to Aquatica 2 1/2 times over the past month. And -- to be honest -- my fingers are still kind of pruney. But after a month of soft openings, SeaWorld Orlando's waterpark has its official grand opening this past...

    As you enter SeaWorld Orlando , it's really hard to miss the thing. Photo by Robert Bish That enormous construction wall that's been erected around the front of this theme park.

  • Blog Post: Aquatica really raises the bar for Orlando area waterparks

    My wife, daughter and I arrived at Aquatica at 9 a.m. yesterday. Right at rope drop ... Photo by Robert Bish ... And almost immediately after we entered SeaWorld 's waterpark, we hit a bottleneck. As this huge crowd of people had stopped to stare down into the pool where Aquatica's star attractions,...
  • Blog Post: Will Aquatica finally turn Orlando into a three resort town ?

    A while back, I found myself watching " Jaws 3D " (Alright. I know. It's a really awful movie. As Statler said to Waldorf in " The Muppet Movie ," "I've seen detergents that leave a better film than this"). Mind you, I wasn't watching this Joe Alves film because I'm a " Shark Week " enthusiast. But ...
