In addition to being Mental Health Awareness Month, May also happens to be National Military Appreciation Month.


Families with retired or active military members can enjoy the fruits of their services with a discounted rate on accommodations at Rosen Hotels & Resorts. The 50 percent discount on accommodations is available at four of its family-friendly leisure hotels in Orlando.


Because vacation accommodations are just a portion of the expense of getting away, Rosen Hotels also offer half-off all food and beverage prices, excluding alcohol.


The golfers in the family can dust off their clubs and enjoy a discounted $69 rate at Shingle Creek Golf Club, a stone’s throw from most participating hotels. The discounts will be available all month long.

Any active or retired U.S. Military personnel, including the U.S. Coast Guard, National Guard and Reservists, are included in the special honorary prices offered throughout the month.


For families looking to spend a day or two at Universal Studios, check out nearby accommodations at Rosen Inn. The hotel is conveniently located and offers more than 300 guestrooms. Enjoy the heated swimming pool and video arcade game room with the kids or escape to the fitness center for a little “me” time.


With even more play for your buck, Rosen Inn International is a Universal Partner Hotel, located a short distance from Orlando’s fun shopping and entertainment areas. Let the kids run around on the property playground, playing outdoor pool games or swimming laps.


For the big Disney fans in the family, Clarion Inn Lake Buena Vista is a great option for military families. Enjoy your discounts and easy access to the parks (located about 2 miles away), but a  safe distance from the hustle and bustle so you can relax after a long day at the theme park. Kids enjoy the 24-hour game room, children’s water park at the pool and comfortable guestrooms.


Kids ages 5 and younger eat at breakfast and dinner buffets for free, while accompanied by a paying adult, and children aged 6–10 dine on a discount. Guests can easily get to and from all nearby parks with the complimentary scheduled service, but check what specific parks and times may be available before planning your stay.

Totts Simplifies Packing for Traveling Families

Traveling with young children and, dare we say, toddlers, can often mean packing everything but the kitchen sink. You’ll need all the essentials, from food, clothing and baby hygiene products to travel gear and just-in-case accessories for every scenario under the sun. Sounds like a lot because it is, but companies like Totts can cut out a significant part of the packing process by shipping all the consumables you need for your trip, like wipes, diapers, body wash, detergent, hand sanitizer and more, to your destination. Travel a little lighter and have all the what-if necessities waiting for you at your Airbnb, hotel or campsite.
