Wife, mama of 4 and Annual Passholders to Walt Disney World, Universal Studios Orlando and SeaWorld Orlando. My family and I made the move from South Louisiana to Central Florida 3 years ago and never looked back! My children’s ages range from 19 to 5, and the theme parks in the Central Florida area has something for all age groups. We are looking forward to adding Legoland Florida Annual Passes soon!
