Nickelodeon Hotel

My sister got a room at the Nickelodeon Hotel in Orlando for my niece Hailie's 10Th birthday and invited us over. We went over Friday afternoon and stayed until Saturday afternoon. We had such a great time! The hotel has two amazing pools with tons of fun for all ages. Rylan especially loved swimming in the pool and playing in the little kids area where they had a little slide. He was so funny going down on his bum, his belly, backward, forward, you name it! He is such a little daredevil! They have lots of characters roaming around the hotel and Friday night we went down to the "mall", it's basically a big food court with some stores and an arcade. Anyways, Blue (the dog) from Blues Clues came up to Rylan while his Papa was holding him and apparently freaked out and hit Blue! I was ordering food and didn't see it, but hey, I was glad if someone got too close he didn't want to he would know what to do. :) The hotel has different things and shows for the kids all day and up until midnight at night! We took Rylan on Saturday morning to a Kinder music class. It was much like our Gymboree classes we do here but with more toys and singing. He loved it and it was a lot of fun for Ben and I too. It is amazing how much bonding you do in those classes. We also took Rylan into the arcade and he had a blast. He loved the Dance Dance Revolution and the best part was that we didn't even have to play the game for him to jump and dance on it! But his favorite game was the one where you roll the ball up the lane and then it hits the bump at the end and goes into a different circle for points (sorry, bad description, but I can't think of the name). Well he loved chucking that ball and often times it went into the other lane. So ultimately Ben and I were the ones scoring points. I forgot how much fun that game can be! We were very grateful to have been invited over and had a really great time. Happy Birthday Hailie & Thank you! :)

Skee-ball!!!! Thanks happy! yes that is it! I love that game! if you have AAA you get a HUGE discount over there. My sister only paid $90 a night! It is normally close to $200, but you can find deals different times of the year. I wasn't very impressed with the rooms, they are very small, but the kids love it!
