If there are any things that are used a lot in Central Florida, it’s strollers. Some families bring their own, some buy a cheap one at Walmart or Target and then leave it here when they go home (what a waste – I hope there’s a system in place so they consistently get donated somewhere!), and others rent a stroller, either at the theme parks on a daily basis, or by a rental stroller company for the length of their stay. Some people even rent strollers that look like a princess’s carriage.
There’s one stroller rental company, Main Street Strollers, that’s been making huge strides in Orlando because not only are they one of the few that rent those popular Keenz stroller wagons, but they have, by far, the lowest prices for those rentals that I had seen in the entire area.
In Spring of 2019, the Disney parks on both coasts set size limits on strollers that could enter their parks (click here for a list of what strollers can and cannot be brought into the parks now) and although Main Street Strollers’ single and double strollers were still fine, their Keenz stroller wagons were no longer allowed into Walt Disney World parks, unless the child using it had special needs.
Some companies would have just shrugged their shoulders and carried on as best as they could. Instead, Main Street Strollers did what any successful company with an eye towards the future would do.

I’ve got to be honest. The Daily Getaways promotion is one that I’m always interested in. It’s a great chance to pick up some great travel deals that you won’t see anywhere else. For 10 years, the U.S. Travel Association has been running this fundraiser that features daily deals from many of the major travel companies.
This year, for the 10th Anniversary, the Daily Getaways deals are returning with over 20 top companies signing on. New deals will be released at 1PM EST on every weekday from May 6th to June 4th but there are also going to be a few added things during this year’s promotion. The biggest addition is that for each deal purchased, customers can opt-in to receive an entry to win a $10,000 custom trip to a U.S. destination of their choice. As we always say with sweepstakes, you gotta be in it to win it.
Many blogs cover the Daily Getaways in depth and try to determine if the offer that day is a good deal or not. We’re of the opinion that it’s up to each individual to determine if a deal is good or not because these offers are the ultimate Your Mileage May Vary situation. I’ve purchased things from Daily Getaways the last couple of years but each of those purchases was for a specific situation.
Starting today, you can preview the offers that will be on sale for the first three weeks of the promotion at http://www.dailygetaways.com/

I’m usually a very calm person to a fault and will usually let things go that other people would go crazy about. But despite my best efforts, even I will sometimes get angry over something rather minor. I don’t want to become one of those people who complain about #firstworldproblems like the downgrade of champagne in first class or getting one minute less of water during an on-board shower. But when I see an online offer that will be available at a future date, I expect that same offer to be available when I go to buy it. Such was not the case for this past Thursday’s Daily Getaways promotion.

Orlando’s Sea World at Discovery Cove is upping the ante with a brand new dinner and dolphin encounter called Paradise Nights, and it sounds like what could be the perfect ending to a perfect day at the Orlando-based mammal park, oceanarium, animal theme park and rehabilitation center.
