Great NEW stuff coming to
International Drive . . .
An article in the August 22nd edition of the
Orlando Sentinel talked about some very cool new
things that are coming to I-Drive, where Mercado
used to be located. Plans include:
- The Orlando Eye, a 435 foot high observation wheel similar to the London Eye

Lots of restaurants and shops are also planned for
this new area. Stay tuned to this newsletter for
Secrets to saving money in Orlando and
Kissimmee! This is how the "locals" do it!!
Save 50-65% on great restaurants, spa treatments,

never pay full price to eat out at great restaurants
