When in Orlando, there are many places to dine, especially at Disney Springs. After a recent visit, I can personally recommend Wine George Bar. This a restaurant experience you will not want to miss! The estate-style wine bar featuring wine and food masterfully paired by Master Sommelier George Miliotes.
Wine George Bar offers a full bar plus over 140 wines --- all available by the glass, bottle...and the ounce! Alongside your wine, you can enjoy a full menu of small plates, cheese and charcuterie, family style plates and sweets.
For our meal, we started with the cheese board of 4 cheeses, olives, jam, a local honeycomb and almonds. Then we tried the Skirt Steak family plate which included a huge serving of perfectly prepared steak, roasted potatoes and asparagus. Definitely enough to feed at least 3 hungry adults!
The Wine List is Huge!

Heading out on a trip to the botanical gardens can be a fun and exciting way for a family to spend a day, but you need to do some planning to ensure it is a success. Some parents try to wing it, and inevitably spend the day thinking about “I wish” moments that would have made the day easier. The botanical gardens are meant to be enjoyed, so take the time to consider some things ahead of time.
Here are my top two tips to help you get the most out of your trip.
Create Excitement About The Plants
You can create excitement by sharing some of the facts about plants. A good example of this would be their defense systems. For example, some plants have thorns to protect them while others excrete toxic chemicals. It’s a good idea to research the plants you will be seeing so that you have some details to share with your children. Kids are naturally fascinated by things like this.
Find the Children’s Garden First
Most botanical gardens have areas just for kids; locate this area first. These areas allow the children to enjoy a hands on experience so that they can better enjoy the gardens. This experience is also a learning one, so parents are as satisfied as children are by it.
The important thing is to have fun at the botanical gardens with your kids. You may be able to create a lifelong learner when it comes to plant life. You may even be able to show your indoor-loving child that there are wonders to see if he or she is only willing to step outside the front door.

Many moms think of Disney's Hollywood Studies as a “half day park,” if you’re traveling with preschoolers who are too short to ride Rock ‘N Roller Coaster or too scared of storm troopers. But they are wrong! From Andy’s Backyard in the new Toy Story Land to snow falling in Arendelle, your entire family will wonder how you’d ever skipped out on a wonderful day at Hollywood Studios.

If you enjoy planetariums then this one will be one not to miss. The Frost Science Museum Planetarium is an upgrade compared to other planetariums I have enjoyed. It is one of only 13 like it in the world! The shows range from space trips to deep dives and feel so real.
