Today LEGOLAND Florida celebrates the opening of The LEGO® World of Chima presented by Cartoon Network today, and we were able to visit for Media Day yesterday.

The World of Chima

The World of Chima is a new direction for LEGOLAND Florida, as it marks the first of many highly-themed areas that will be coming to the park in the years to come.

The Quest for Chi entrance

The Quest for Chi, is the centerpiece attraction for The World of Chima, and features an interactive water ride where guests will join in the battle to protect the Chi and get SOAKED!

As you walk up to The Quest for Chi, watch out!!! There are water cannons for a reason!!!

On The Quest for Chi after boarding your watercraft, families can use water cannons activate the story in each of the scenes along their journey as well as have a chance to battle other boats and guests along the shore line.

The Quest for Chi is a fun attraction! The controls for the ride are simple for children to operate without help from adults and the theming is age appropriate.

Some things to keep in mind while you’re riding The Quest for Chi…

The World of Chima

  • Each boat has 2 rows of cannons with benches for you to sit, but you can also stand.
  • As you load your watercraft, the benches on the side closest to the load area are a little dryer…just a little tho!
  • YOU WILL GET WET!!! Please head this warning, and watch out for your cameras and phones!!!

The only height requirement for The Quest for Chi is that riders under 48” must ride with a supervising companion.

The World of Chima

Cragger’s Swamp Play Area is a water play area for younger guests that features playful bubbles, intermittent water spouts, and interactive elements that trigger swamp water effects.

The models in Cragger’s Swamp are pretty awesome and the water cannons are a lot of fun! I almost got soaked from the water spouts that go off as you get closer to them!

This is my favorite model in Cragger’s Swamp!

At the Speedorz  Arena, guests can take part in a multiple players battle against each other using rip cordpowered LEGO vehicles. The Arena is under shade, and there are benches for parents to sit which is a huge plus for this area!!!

P.S. from Aeropostale opens at the Prime Outlets

If anybody knows me well, they know that I adore shopping. I Adore outlets and I ADORE a great deal!!! Outlet shopping is the best because you never know what you might find.

When Shelley and I were asked to come to the Grand Opening Party for P.S. for Aeropostale ( WHICH is pronounced Aero-post-ale FYI 😉 ) , I jumped at the chance.

When you walk into the store, you are immediately blown away at the bright and light and open space of a store that is packed full of kids clothes. The Displays were eye catching and the words written on the walls were adorable.

This kind of store makes me wish I was a kid/tween so I could have Owl Pajamas and  socks that had cool phrases&symbols on them!

P.S. For Aeropostale  is the sister store to Aeropostale. These clothes are geared towards the fashionable kid/tween set that are to small for Aeropostale and too big for baby clothes! They are affordable, durable and just plain ADORABLE! They carry trendy stuff, adorable pajamas, fun shoes and socks and even school uniform offerings.

Good GOLLY I wish this was in big kid sizes!

Now, since I have no little’s of my own , I headed over to the Big Kids Aeropostale where they offered us the same 20% off discount for the Opening of P.S.from Aeropostale Party! ( Thank you to Michelle and Ellen) I was able to pick up a bevy of things for a FRACTION of the regular mall prices!!!!

I picked up 2 pair of boot socks, 2 camis, a Rugby Shirt and 5 pair of knit boxer briefs for about $47.00 !!!!!!

If you are looking for a place to stock up on some goodies for school or christmas or any holiday, then PLEASE take a run over to P.S.for Aeropostale and Aeropostale at the Prime Outlets on International Drive!

Thank you to Jen for inviting us and for the ladies and gents at P.S. for Aeropostale for hosting us!!

We will be back!

Pammie’s Sammies Grand-ReOpening!

5907 Turkey Lake Road, Suite 100
Orlando, Florida 32819

I got the chance to swing by the Grand ReOpening of Pammies’ Sammies, located near the Universal Orlando Resort, and I have to say it was super yummy and a great place to just kick back and have a nice meal with friends or family.

Pammie’s Sammies is a family owned cafe that prides itself on being thoughtfully sourced, earth friendly and tastefully adventurous. Pam Thomas, the proprietor, puts an innovative spin on classic sandwiches (“sammies”), burgers, BBQ, soups and salads. As part of the grand reopening, Pammie’s Sammies has expanded to include a craft beer and wine bar and will now serve happy hour bar bites and dinner entrees in addition to their original breakfast and lunch offerings.

While the food is absolutely delicious, their Cuban was my favorite and Zoe has been asking for more brownies, it is Pam herself that really creates an atmosphere of fun and hospitality that makes you feel like you are a friend just dropping in for a bite to eat.

And when I say it’s located near the Universal Orlando Resort, I mean you can SEE Universal Studios Florida from there windows, which make it an ideal place to stop before or after heading into the parks.

If you are looking for an affordable, fun, and delicious place to grab a great Sammie, I would definitely suggest heading over to Pammie’s Sammies!
