What do kids want when they stay in hotels? Contrary to what some might think, it’s not necessarily XBox in the room.

Sarah Ebner blogs at Family Travel Times. Here, she reviews one of the premiere attractions in Orlando, Florida. One of our recent family trips was part of a cherished dream that I had for as long as I can remember: to visit two worlds, Disney and Sea. I clearly recall aching to see a dolphin […]
