Tampa Bay’s Hometown Morning Krewe

Weekdays 6:00AM - 10:00AM

Launa’s trip to Disney’s H2O Glow Party.   I got invited to spend the weekend at Disney last weekend.   We got to spend a couple days hanging out at Disney World and also got to experience the first night of the H2O Glow party at Typhoon Lagoon.

What a great event to take the kids to or even have a girls night.  So many water rides to choose from at Typhoon Lagoon.  First, the coolest thing about the after hours event is that you don’t have to wait in the lines that long to ride all the water rides.  The H2O Glow party is only open from 8pm until 11pm – so 3 hours of fun.  They close the park at 5 and do not open it back up until 8pm.  Because your riding the water rides at nighttime, there are less people there, so shorter lines.

And yes, the water is warm, it’s perfect because the air it still hot.  The party takes place select nights going on now until September 2nd.

Our favorite water ride was the Crush ‘n’ gusher.   This ride was awesome.  Storm Slides, Gangplank Falls and Kowabunga were super cool too and the kids loved the wave/surf pool.

The food they have is amazing.  I got to talk with the head Chef Brad and sample a ton of the different dishes.  Seafood, Chicken and watermelon poke bowls, fun multi-colored churros, mini donuts and funnel cakes.   Plus the fancy, fun drinks like the pineapple mai tai…which is made inside of a huge pineapple.  The best thing is that there are bars located through out the park for mom and dad to grab a beer or cocktail.  There is something for everyone.

This is a fun day for adults.  If you are deciding what to do on a girls day – think about Typhoon Lagoon where they have sandy beaches, water rides and everything you need right there.  Crazy how you forget your in the middle of Orlando when you are there.

The kids were so excited plus they got free popcorn and Mickey Ice Cream during the 3-hour event.




5 Favorite Summer Camps For Kids In Tampa

It’s crazy to think that most schools will be out in a few weeks. Then what do you do with your kids all summer?  It’s a good idea to start planning now.   Here are 5 favorite summer camps for kids in Tampa.

A summer program provides a safe environment for children to develop social skills, decision-making skills, and experience the great outdoors.  Socialization during childhood is good for growth and development.

Lots of parents send their kids to camps to keep them active and busy and off the iPad’s and phones.

Most communities have their own summer camps to help out busy parents, but we complied a list of our favorites.   We also dig some digging and found so many opportunities.  There are so many different types of events that you can get involved in Tampa.  Programs for your children during off school months can help out working parents and also keep kids engaged through out the summer.  It’s a good idea to keep kids active and moving so that returning to the school year isn’t so hard on them.  Plus it is a great opportunity to expose them to new ideas and activities.  Keeping them active helps as they return to the start of the school year.

If your child loves sports, the outdoors, crafts or cooking, there are many programs and summer camps you can get your kids involved in.
