Megan was the one that was first bit by the travel bug this time. She just wanted to go somewhere. So I said - "See what deals you can find and we will talk about it" (or something to that affect). I gave her some tips - Search in an incognito window (this is important if you are going to look around and perhaps think about it for a few days - that way they don't keep track of what you are doing and start raising the prices) and check out Kayak. Both of those have been very helpful for finding good deals in the past.
Megan is a great researcher and when she is into something she really pours her heart into it. Before I know it she has everything planned. We can fly to Orlando (from Minneapolis - we did have to drive down there) for $37 round trip, she had found an AirBnB for around $46 a night, she found deals for Aquatica for $45 for a day which included a meal and a rental car for around $19 a day. Before long she had the whole agenda planned I just needed to start reserving things.

Then we went to Target because Malcolm was needing more diapers. Because we all came with just a backpack each Mara wasn't able to pack many diapers but we figured they could be bought there. I also bought a frozen meal and some spicy ramen for supper at Target while we were there, spending a little under $10.
Starflyer which Megan had decided in her research was the ride that we should go on while in Orlando. It used to be the world's tallest swing ride at 450 feet but I guess there is now a taller one in Dubai. Anyway, it is pretty tall and it can get going up to 45 miles an hour. It is a little chilly to ride on when you get up high. It did cost $12 for a 5 minute ride but it was a fun experience and you did get a good view of the city.

We did find out that we could have used our parking pass to go park at any other Disney places that same day and we thought about trying to fit in Disney Boardwalk but decided we didn't have time. Just now as I found that link I see that we were right next to it when we were parked at Epcot. We could have gone quickly. Oh well!
