Stepping into the bright lobby of Universal's Cabana Bay Beach Resort with its sky-high palm trees and retro themed furnishings, you are hit with an instant blast from the past. Back to the days of when Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon rocked movies like Beach Party and Bikini Beach. Here, guests can effortlessly drift back to a simpler time with sandy white beach areas, a Galaxy Bowl bowling alley, lazy river and fantastically themed hotel rooms with retro amenities from Zest and V05.

I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central for the National Pasta Association. I received pasta samples and a stipend to facilitate the creation of pasta recipes as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
You may remember a few weeks ago when I shared a recipe we made from the Pasta Fits website. As a Pasta Fits Ambassador, my family and I are really enjoying making delicious and easy meals from their website, but I love their website for a whole other reason. See, my youngest is a veggiephobe. Yes, I completely made that word up. So what? He would rather die than put most vegetables in his mouth. On the other hand, he loves pasta. So, I have mastered the art of hiding veggies in his pasta meals that we make from PastaFits.org.
When the parks close for the night, the fun is far from over at Universal Orlando. When the sun goes down, the neon lights of Citywalk give off a gleaming glow of colors that beckons you to come and explore. From first-class restaurants to one-stop shopping, mini golf and night clubs for the adult crowd, Universal Orlando's Citywalk has something to meet everyone's entertainment needs. It is the perfect way to spend an evening strolling along the canal and drinking in the fun atmosphere long after the parks have closed for the night.
