FROM PRESS RELEASE:
Central Florida Families can enjoy the Orlando Science Center for $5/person
Walmart Foundation $5 Day Returns on Sunday, March 14 only – 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

ORLANDO, FL – (March 9, 2010) – The next “Walmart Foundation $5 Day” at the Orlando Science Center will be Sunday, March 14. Thanks to the generous support of the Walmart Foundation, all guests to the Science Center on that day will enjoy exhibits, films and live programs for the significantly discounted price of $5. General admission fees are usually $17 for adults and $12 for kids (ages 3-11).

“Walmart Foundation and Walmart Stores continually look for opportunities to give back locally,” said Steven Daniel, Walmart Market Manager for Central Florida. “We have been very pleased with the response of the last two Walmart Foundation $5 Days at the Orlando Science Center. The previous events provided families with a full day of engaging fun at a greatly reduced price. These are the types of community programs we are proud to sponsor for our Central Florida neighbors.”

During this day of reduced admission prices, guests can enjoy the newly arrived Frogs, an exhibit featuring over 80 live frogs and toads representing 20 species from around the world. A variety of hands-on exhibits let you discover fascinating facts about frog anatomy, their behavior, and most importantly, the role that frogs, as amphibians, play in measuring the ecological health of our environment. Guests can continue their day of exploration with Science in Toyland, where they can use classic toys to learn scientific principles. Visitors will also be able to enjoy exhibits like the hurricane simulator in Science Park, the orange grove in KidsTown, and the live reptiles on display in NatureWorks.

“We have really enjoyed participating in Walmart Foundation $5 Days. The attendance at the earlier two events has been incredible. More than 4,000 people came out each time to the Orlando Science Center to explore and discover together,” said JoAnn Newman, president and CEO of the Science Center. “Walmart Stores are a very generous community partner that enables us to make this special offer possible.”

In addition to touring exhibits, guests can venture into the Dr. Phillips CineDome and witness the breathtaking visuals being projected on the massive eight-story screen. Visitors can sit down and enjoy the new film Amazon – A breathtaking look into the vibrant life along the Amazon River.  They can also witness Mystic India – where audiences experience India’s geographic and cultural diversity, amaze in the natural beauty of its land and architecture and celebrate in its spectacular festivals and spiritual wonders.

50% Off Admission to Kissimmee Air Museum

KAM_logo_r
Though smaller than other aeronautical displays/museums in the Greater Orlando area, this is very much a prophead’s dream come true. It has been a few years since I was at KAM/WAF, but you will see warbirds in various stages of being rebuilt, and usually they are being done so to once again take to the sky.

A few years I have had the pleasure of walking among the parked wide bodies (so close to planes that we could kick the tires) in the Mojave desert, and let me tell you that this museum of sorts contained within a hanger and the surrounding area at Kissimmee Airport had no problem holding my attention for several hours. I am sure you will be just as impressed.

Click on their logo or visit their website for more info on the 50% off that runs through 12/31/09.
