Family Day at a Theme Park


This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Mott’s®.

A few weeks ago, Richard had to travel to Orlando for work, and the kids and I decided to tag along. Orlando is about a 3-hour drive from our home, so it was a fun mini-road trip for us. We decided to take the kids to a theme park they had not been to since 2014. There was so much more for them to do now that they are a little older! Two-and-a-half years makes a big difference.

We started the day on the carousel, and not just the bottom-level, but the upper-deck. I don’t like rides, so Richard went with the kids on all the rides. He had to double-up on the rollercoasters so that he could take them one at a time. My kids were scared at first, but they fought their fears, and they were brave! They went on every single rollercoaster and had a blast!

Now that Bryce is 5, he was able to enjoy some of the attractions all by himself. Both kids meet the height requirements to go on every ride. It is nice to see that they are growing so confident and becoming more independent. We made a ton of new memories on our day-trip to this theme park.

And of course, there were tons of photo opportunities at the park and the neighboring areas of Orlando. Thank goodness my kids are used to their blogger mom taking so many pictures! I couldn’t resist these cute backdrops.

It’s important to pack the essentials when heading to a theme park. In Florida, there are two absolute necessities: sun protection and dehydration protection. Basically, lots of sunscreen and lots of fluids. For snacks, I packed Mott’s NEW juice pouches and Mott’s unsweetened applesauce pouches. Both were easy to fit in our luggage {and in my backpack as we walked around the park}, and they make the perfect snacks to enjoy on-the-go. Additionally, we packed water bottles, phones, phone chargers, my nice camera, cash for souvenirs, and hats to block some of the sun. And I need to shout from the rooftops that we are finally stroller-free at theme parks. {Honestly, this was very exciting!}

Head to Walmart where you can purchase Mott’s Juice items in the juice section and Mott’s Sauce items in the apple/fruit sauce section. Mott’s is full of real fruit goodness. It is an excellent source of vitamins to help your little ones start strong and grow strong. Whether you’re at home or on-the-go, Mott’s helps your kids be healthy!
