Guests at Fun Spot’s two locations in Orlando and Kissimmee will be able to purchase one-day unlimited ride armbands for only $16 from 10am to noon, either in person or online. Regular price is $40, so that’s quite a savings! Guests can also purchase $16 Sky Coaster flights all day until closing time.
Once you purchase your armbands (up to 6 people), you can stay and play or come back another day this year.
The first 1600 in-park guests will receive Fun Spot bags, T-shirts, pens, sunglasses and other fun giveaway items, too. In addition, there will be in-park entertainment such as magicians, face painters, stilt walkers and more. Guests can also purchase specially priced souvenir cups for $4 with unlimited refills for that day.
Even though the weather is getting cooler, Aquatica Orlando is still open for fun, and it is offering two great deals on admission for Florida residents.

Arabian Nights dinner show will present a special holiday production of its show called “Amirah’s Wish” during the month of December.
This show is different from the standard show, “A Royal Celebration,” which debuted this summer (read our review).
The holiday story is this: When Prince Raswan is called away, Khadri the genie and Santa Claus himself must work together to distract Princess Amirah with gifts and good cheer.
Though the story is different, the production still features the show’s style of horsemanship, acrobatics, and aerial performances.
The holiday show runs from December 1, 2013 – January 2, 2014, and tickets are $66.99 per guest, with upgrades available. If you like horses, the VIP Experience is worth the $81.99 price. There is also a 25% discount for purchasing tickets online in advance.
Families visiting LEGOLAND Florida can now take advantage of admission discounts when purchasing tickets online in advance.
The park’s new Pick-A-Date variable pricing program offers $15 off each admission ticket, when bought eight or more days in advance of the visit. This can bring admission to as low as $64 per adult and $54 for children/seniors. Guests who purchase within two to seven days of the visit can still save $10 off each ticket.
These savings are valid on both one and two-day park visits.
If a visit date is not selected, standard daily park admission will apply. This runs from $79 for a one-day, one-park ticket for adults to $106 for a two-day, two-park adult ticket, that includes admission to LEGOLAND Water Park.

Yesterday (December 27), the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex unveiled the first phase of a 10-year Master Plan to enhance the guest experience, when it opened a new $16 million entry.
The new entry includes:
a grand plaza and fountain
ticket stations and self-service kiosks
will call, guest services and information stations
a retail shop
The new entrance draws guests from the parking lot into a grand entry plaza where they are greeted by a first-ever 3D representation of the NASA insignia that spans 13 feet in diameter.
To the right of the globe stands a 75-foot-long fountain that pays homage to the dreams of late President John F. Kennedy, for whom NASA’s Kennedy Space Center is named.
Kennedy’s face, along with a quote from his famous 1962 “moon speech” at Rice University, are laser etched onto a skyward-reaching arch of blue granite that stands 30-feet at its highest point. The inscription reads, “For the eyes of the world now look into space, to the moon and to the planets beyond…”
The 5,000-gallon fountain is lit in the evenings with LED lights and features 26 jets of water that can be programmed to create light shows for guests as they exit the park or during evening special events or exhibitions.
The Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is offering a special discount for guests who visit during this holiday season.
Purchase one adult admission at $50 + tax, and get one child admission free (a $40 savings).
This special runs through January 7, 2013, and is only available when purchasing admission at the front gate ticket plaza. The offer is not available for advance purchase.
Admission includes the Kennedy Space Center Tour, featuring an actual Saturn V moon rocket, Shuttle Launch Experience, 3D IMAX® space films, Astronaut Encounter, Exploration Space: Explorers Wanted and all exhibits. Admission also includes the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame®, featuring historic spacecraft and the world’s largest collection of personal astronaut memorabilia opens daily at noon and closing times vary by season.
It also includes KSC’s second annual “Holidays in Space,” which runs through January 1, 2013. This includes holiday decorations and the opportunity to learn about the holiday traditions of each of the International Space Station partner countries: Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and United States.
Legendary singer-songwriter Barry Manilow is taking his show on the road and will be making a stop at the Amway Center on January 20, 2011.
Yes, the best seats will cost over $100 a piece, like most tours do nowadays. But if you really want to see Manilow, and don’t mind sitting up in the nosebleeds way in the back, you can score a ticket for around $16 (after Ticketmaster fees).
I also spotted a deal on tickets via the discount website TravelZoo. The upper bowl promenade tickets that are normally selling for $81.34 are only $37 with this promotion. Upgrade to lower bowl seats for only $51 instead of $111.99.
In a career that spans over 30 years, Barry Manilow has created groundbreaking entertainment and has sold more than 80 million records worldwide. Among his catalog of hits are songs like “Mandy,” “Copacabana” and “I Write the Songs.”
Normally he has a stage show at the Paris resort in Las Vegas, but for this tour, Manilow takes the stage with over 50 musicians from the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra.
Don’t miss this opportunity to see a classic showman do his thing on stage. Especially not at such great prices.
