If you are around on a weekend, go to OldTown on Saturday night. Lots of old cars on the brick streets inside. It's quite an event.

If you are here on March 22-23 there is Billetproof at Don Garlits place. It is above Tampa, but not a bad drive from Orlando. Garlits Museum is worth seeing anytime, even if there is no show there.

Orlando has some real cool places to see! Im sure if you search you will find plenty of fun for the whole family!!If your into planes, there is a real cool vintage aircraft museum around the kissimmee area.

There is a flight museum just off I- 4 west of Lakeland as well. It's is a VERY cool place as well. Another must see is Don Garlets Museum of Drag Racing @ Ocala (where Billetproof is being held).

If you are doing some family things, like Disney, you HAVE to take in cirque du soleil. It is without a doubt one of the most amazing shows you will ever see. Your Kids and Mrs will love it, and you will too. I went one time just to please my ex girlfriend, and ended up loving it more than her! Here is a site for it:

Also, if you go to Disney, take in the Lion King Show. MY ex-GF Daughter dances in it, and it is spectacular. We saw it three times in one day, it was that good.

Default Pirates and Gators!!

I took the family to Orlando in 2001 and we did the Universal Studios thing and it was great(2 day minimum required to see it all). But the two things that we still talk about were a Pirate dinner show that all the kids in the audience got to participate in. It was really cool and lasted several hours. Also I found a small airboat tour company that was a little slow that week and for about $120 bucks they spent about a half day with us. We saw lots of gators( probably boring for you local guys) and he even let the kids drive the airboat!!! He wouldnt let me drive though,wonder why?

Oh..and on the way home we stopped at Garlits place like already mentioned, it is a must see and takes a while if you look at everything close.

Thanks for all the repies guys that is really great of you. I have good news! I may be able to go to Billetproof after all! The wife told me we weren't leaving from Orlando until Saurday night. I guess we are doing a big dinner thing with the family. Si would have all day to go to Billetproof!

Yeah for me!
