and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Discover the Dinosaurs is a unique, hands-on exhibit, consisting of moving and replica dinosaurs that you can actually touch!

For the walk-through exhibit, guests will be immersed in the period of time that best reflects when the dinosaurs lived. You’ll be engaged with sight, sound, and motion with special lighting, sound effects, animatronics, and fog. The backdrops, rocks, flooring, and plant materials are designed to bring you back in time to a landscape where dinosaurs lived.

Don’t be frightened when you come upon dinosaurs that move (and even ROAR) as you walk through jungle-like scenes with dinosaurs in their natural environment.

Included with with paid admission are: Triceratopos and T-Rex Rides (They’re not too scary, but a once in a lifetime opportunity, and a great photo op!), Inflatables (socks required), mini golf, dino dig, dino theater, dino den (socks required, dino coloring, scavenger hunt and dino maze (subject to availability). Add on attractions include face painting and gem and fossil panning.

It’s no secret that my family is currently dino-obsessed (from the Jurassic-themed birthday party to the dinosaur eggs at Easter). Talking with other parents, I know we’re not alone. Join us at Discover the Dinosaurs for an event “millions of years” in the making!

 

 

Get Cheesy at O-Town MacDown this Saturday!

Things are getting severe up in here… for Give Kids the World!

I love macaroni and cheese. I know YOU love macaroni and cheese.

Imagine a place where you, your friends and fellow connoisseurs can sample the cheesy goodness from over 30 chefs from places like Hard Rock Cafe Orlando, 4Rivers Smokehouse and Four Seasons Resort Orlando. They all will compete and make you all the mac and cheese you can eat, then make it for you again as often as you like… until 4pm.

This, my friends, is the O-Town MacDown Presented by Tom and Chee, (benefitting the magical Give Kids the World Village in Kissimmee), and you NEED to be there this Saturday, September 12th!

What’s going down this year aside from the MacDown itself? A Fun Zone for the kids, live entertainment from start to finish, Celebrity Chef Cooking Demonstrations and more than 30 vendor booths such as; Medieval Times, Trader Joe’s, Orlando City Soccer and of course Tom+Chee!
