Make sure you tune into Orlando’s Evening News with Tony Marino on WDBO tonight at 6:38pm ET to hear about these and other fun things going on around Central Florida!
If you are On the Go in the Parks this weekend you might want to bring an umbrella, but don’t let the sprinkles keep you away from having an awesome time in the parks this President’s Day Weekend!
Before we head into the parks, let’s look at two different but equally awesome Valentine’s Day offers!
Madame Tussauds Orlando at ICON Park on I-Drive will shred old photos of exes in exchange for free admission. Don’t worry if you are paperless, because the attraction will accept a deleted photo of your ex from your phone. Free admission – and freedom from the past – begin on Valentine’s Day, Sunday, February 14, and run through Monday to include #SinglesAwaressDay on February 15, obviously.
One of my absolute favorite places to eat at Disney Springs is Raglan RoadIrish Pub, and this Valentine’s Day guests 21 and older will be offered a complimentary glass of pink bubbly to toast their brunch, lunch, or dinner visit or to pair with a special dessert like the Rocky Road to Raglan dessert – double chocolate and smoked almond brownie with chocolate ice cream, house-made marshmallow, toffee crunch, chocolate crumbs, and raspberry puree.
What’s great about Raglan Road is they have great outdoor and indoor seating options with live music in each area starting at noon.
