    Couple gets to spend 67 Days of Fun in Orlando!

    How much fun would this be??!!!


    67 Days of Smiles - Orlandoinfo.com

    Kyle Post and Stacey Doornbos have been selected to spend 67 Days this fall experiencing everything Orlando has to offer. They will visit more than 100 Orlando attractions including everything from rollercoaster riding to hang gliding, swimming with dolphins, spa-ing, golfing, gator wrestling, museum exploring, theatre-going, dining and more.

    A condo in downtown Orlando? Someone has a deathwish.

    That sounds sweet!

    Although. 100 attractions in 67 days? I did two weeks in Orlando commando style and it was exhausting. Hope they get a lot of down time to recuperate.

    They have to document their experiences eh? Kind of sounds like Orlando was trying to copy that Australian dream job competition where you got to live on that island for a few months.

    Because downtown Orlando is ghetto and crime-ridden like you would not believe. I have a friend who lives near downtown Orlando. Where his house it, it's a very nice neighborhood, but if you go down like 2 blocks... GHETTO! You couldn't pay me enough to want to live there.

    I ws going to sign up. It seems fun, but it says I had to take off work for two months. I don't know if that is possible. It's good for someone who was unemployed.

    No thanks!

    But it will make for an interesting reality show.
    Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
    it's what they are like in their HEART!

    They stated in the article that they paid the couple $25,000 to take care of their home expenses while they were away.

    Gotta love that.

    hahahaha you have NEVER been to Los Angeles have you? Maybe this place is near downtown as well, but for the sake of the article they said downtown Orlando, instead of "near downtown Orlando."

    Either way, sounds like a fun trip to win.

    green with envy. I wouldn't care if it was ghetto cause I wouldn't be there that much. I would be out doing stuff fun. As long as there wasn't bugs or such. Can't handle buggies. Would love the sight seeing though.

    Beat me to it.

    People don't get Traffic or Ghetto until they come to SoCal. People always told me how bad traffic was in Orlando during the afternoon. It's comparable to 11:00pm here. Try driving in Socal from about 6:00am to 8:00pm. Not fun.

    Now I'm sure there are some bad parts of Orlando, but the downtown area is probably like "The Valley" or something.
