Originally from Louisiana, I moved to Central Florida 23 years ago. I am now married to an Orlando-native and we have two young teens. I love everything Disney (especially their cupcakes), traveling around the state of Florida, cooking for my family, and trying craft beer.

My daughter and I recently took a tour of the LunaSea Alpaca Farm with the owner King, where we were able to feed, pet and play with the beautiful animals.

 Located just north of Orlando, off the Florida Turnpike, tours are by reservation only. Tours are normally scheduled four times per day (11am, 12:30pm, 2:00pm and 3:30pm). To schedule your day and time, call 352-223-9459.  The website suggests a small donation of $10 per person.
Right outside of Winter Garden (and a few miles north of Walt Disney World) is the Oakland Nature Preserve, a 128-acre preserve with several short nature trails for you to explore.  It's a great place to unwind and reconnect with nature.

Announcement from Walt Disney World Regarding the Reopening of Disney Springs...

Wednesday, May 20, will be a great first step in the phased reopening of Walt Disney World Resort, as Disney Springs begins its initial reopening that morning. With the safety and well-being of our guests, cast members and third-party operating participants at the forefront of our planning, we are eager to begin welcoming you back to this part of Walt Disney World. While our theme parks and resort hotels remain temporarily closed, the phased reopening of Disney Springs is a welcome milestone as we navigate through this unprecedented time together as responsibly as we can.

Next week, many of our third-party operating participants will open their doors to Disney Springs guests. On May 27, three Disney-owned and -operated stores and venues will reopen: World of Disney, D-Luxe Burger (mobile order) and the Marketplace Co-Op. You can visit DisneySprings.com/reopening for the most current information on which locations are open.
