Cruise Vacation 4 | Personal

We had a couple of days in Orlando after our cruise.  We were in Orlando last year and did all the Disney parks so we decided to take in a few of the less popular attractions that we missed last year.  We were off the ship pretty early in the morning so we had the whole day to see gators!  First we drove out to Boggy Creek and took an airboat ride over the marsh.  We saw some gators in their natural habitat and it was pretty cool.  Then we spent the rest of the day at Gatorland.

I didn’t have high expectations for Gatorland, but it was really great.  We spent 5 hours here and loved it.

These were incredible to see.  There are only 12 white alligators in the world and 4 of them are here at Gatorland.  They are creepy.

One of the shows.  This alligator really wanted a piece of the handler.

There was an enclosed place the boys went in and these birds were landing on their heads and eating out of their hands.  They loved it.  I watched from outside.

The next day we hit Universal.  We had gone last year, but we had missed parts of the park and we had so much fun here that the boys wanted to go again.

My favorite part of the park is the Marvel Comic area.  I took a ton of pictures here, but I don’t bore you with them.  This one of Captain America is pretty cool though!

 Our last morning in Florida we hung out at the pool until we had to leave later that day for the airport.  Cory and Jack played basketball while Luke and I stayed in the pool.1011
