Hi and welcome to Orlando Parents. My name is Mikaela and I am the Editor and Founder of the site. When my first child was born, I was looking all over for things to do with her. Quite frankly, it took a lot of time. It took almost the same amount of time to find an event as it did going to the event. I was looking for a simpler option and eventually stumbled onto a site that had a wealth of information for things to do with kids in the area.

When I relocated to Orlando, I decided I wanted to start a similar site in this area and thus began Orlando Parents. On this site, you will find information about things to do in the Orlando area, as well as reviews of shows, restaurants, activities and more. We also include information on family trips (short and long) that you can take from the Orlando area.

Our goal is to get you to be able spend more time doing things with your kids, not on the computer looking for things to do. We aim to be your go-to place to find family friendly activities.

If we give you a recommendation, you can be certain that it is something we tried ourselves and think you and your family would enjoy. We welcome you to our family of readers and sincerely hope that you not only enjoy the site, but that is of benefit to you.

If there is anywhere you think we should visit or an event you want to share with us, please feel free to drop us a line at Mikaela[at]orlandoparentsmag.com
