When the founders of Orlando Trip Kit went to Walt Disney World to celebrate their son’s second birthday, a relative who lived nearby showed up at their hotel room with a basket filled with granola bars, cereals, drinks, and snacks. At first, they thought she was crazy—but after four days, they found they emptied the entire basket. After realizing how much money they’d saved, as well as how many hunger-related temper tantrums they’d avoided, they decided to start their Orlando Trip Kit to make travel easier for other Orlando visitors.
Today, Orlando Trip Kit allows vacationers and business travelers alike to bypass baggage fees by custom-filling boxes to be dropped off at their hotels. Their online shop has all the essentials—sunscreen, diapers, baby food, snacks, and drinks—so resort visitors don’t have to pay higher prices to keep hunger at bay and stay protected against the rays emanating from the sun or theme-park mascots outsourced from the local toxic-waste plant. Shoppers can stock their boxes with individual items, or order bundles and kits designed to keep families well supplied.
Pirate's Island and Pirate's Cove plunge putters deep into a thicket of thieving pirates, buried treasure, and stowaways tangled in rigging. Players select an appropriately sized putting club and a golf ball of any color, asserting individuality while creating polychromatic turf art. Putt through two 18-hole courses (one at the Daytona Beach Shores location), skirting shimmering waterfalls that conceal skeletons and spelunking convocations behind translucent veils. The golf course abuts a glorious gift shop, and snacks are available for additional gold.
Bright-blue garage doors slide shut over each unit inside the low-slung white buildings of Cowtown Mini Warehouse Self Storage, shutting off valuables such as boats, cars, or diamond-encrusted scepters from the outside world. Items are left inside the 240-square-foot spaces by clients who entrust the facility to safely and securely stow their belongings for a period of time. Owners rest easy knowing their boats are safely and securely tucked away for the cold months and smaller possessions are protected while they travel for extended periods of time. When they're ready to retrieve them, owners can show back up to the facility at any time of day or night to haul the items off.
Bare bisque perches on black bookshelves at The Clayhouse, awaiting creative inspiration. From mugs and vases to dragons and ice-cream cones, each piece comes to life with the help of paints, stencils, project ideas, and staffers who turn artwork into useful dinnerware by firing it with food-safe glaze. Kids' story time tasks tots with creating a piece based on the stories they've just heard, while adult art time allows friends to catch up over their own wine and takeout treats.
