Walt Disney World’s Toy Story Land with Woody & Friends is Now OPEN for Play

This Toy Story Land Orlando travel post was written by my sister and Modern Boca Mom contributor, Lauren Ricks. I am so happy she decided to share her experience with these new Disney attractions with all of us! Enjoy!


It’s OPEN! So many people (including me!) have been waiting for the arrival of Toy Story Land Orlando at Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios. We Floridians wanted to see it for ourselves so badly after all the hype that we even braved the summer heat!

Happy 30th Shark Week! Princess Cruises Celebrates with ‘Summer of Shark’ Activities

Want to know a great way to spend a Saturday? Get invited as a media guest to celebrate all of the Princess Cruises Shark Week activities onboard a big cruise ship! Want to know a not-so-great way to end that Saturday? That moment you have to get off the ship before it sails off to its first port, LOL. I was totally Googling Princess Cruises prices on the car ride home that day. Sad. Anyways…the reason I’m writing this post is to let you know that Shark Week is turning 30. YES 30! Can you believe? And there are major celebrations in the works!

Spicy in St. Augustine | Getting Away for the Health of Your Marriage

Sometimes, even the most seasoned of couples can use a little spice in their life. After you have children, it’s so easy to fall into the day-to-day parenting routine, unintentionally pushing romance to the backseat of your relationship. That “backseat” description is rather perfect too, because this blog post is all about taking road trips for a healthy marriage! (I just love it when the blog writing flows, LOL…) 

My point is, sometimes you need to get AWAY to focus on YOU as a couple…not JUST as ‘mom and dad.’ Eliminate the kids = eliminate the distractions.

Best Cruise Lines for Boca Families Revealed

So you’re thinking about planning a family vacation this year…and perhaps you’re considering cruising for the first time with your whole brood? Well, it’s no wonder a family cruise is on your mind because it’s hard to beat their tremendous value. Cruises are virtually all inclusive and you can often qualify for special group rates or discounts. But aside from cost, the main reason I like cruising with my family so much is that it is truly a HASSLE-FREE vacation. There are few trips out there where you’re going to have access to 24-hour room service, a 2x per day room cleaning and 100% of your meals prepared. Sign me up! That’s why did some digging on iCruise.com to find out the best cruise lines for Boca families.
