What non-Disney activities are there for mature adults or just the game?

Clearwater beach methamphetamine resort; Gator world; Bingo night at Frostproof Soylent Green manufactured housing park; Downtown Disney twerk night; rocket stuff and boring science crap over there at Cape Canaveral; Drive you car on the beach at Daytona and drop a quart of transmission fluid on some baby turtles while you shotgun bud ice; Orlando Magic basketball; Orlando Magic swingers club; Urban Meyer Chop House Jacksonville; knock-out game with foreign tourists;.......

You pretty much nailed Florida.

But the weather is lovely in late December.

Hey I love this, wife wasn't too thrilled with going and leaving the kids...I said ok lets all go. And she lit up like the Christmas tree. So after Christmas we are spending a week vacationing in Florida, Kids will have a blast, and my oldest and I will go to the game, on Wednesday while my wife and youngest 2 are finding some other fun kid friendly activities for the day. And the other days of the week we will enjoy a few other of the many tourist traps to visit.

Orlando is at least great for family friendly activities. And really the room prices are great. Its just the Flights and car rental prices that are insane. So we will be making it a road trip, to save a bunch.

Gonna be a great time!

And I am not sure I could have pulled this off at many of the other destinations we had options for.

Your kids will remember it for a lifetime.

The drive isn’t bad outside the stretch between ATL and Gainesville takes way longer than it seems it should.

We were thinking we were going to pass after finding out Disney was a no go after just being there. Today I've been worried about having FOMO. We have a hotel booked for points right now. We would be driving. Trying to do it on the cheap after spending a ton last time ($1,000+). Would be three of us going with only two at the game. Struggling to decide if it is worth it?

I hope this isn't a repeat of ISU versus Notre Dame. I'd rather have played NC State


Love the match up. Not the destination.

We purchased the charter through ISU Alumni Assocation for ISU-ND camping world bowl in 2019

had to prepay for the “4-day trip”, before the itinerary was released
~ Day 1. Arrived in Orlando at 10pm
~ Day 4 boarded bus for airport at 5:00am
Was expensive and a 2-day affair ; Rained and the game was lousy……. Hotel was chaotic and a cattle call ;

buyer beware. Sorry for the DebbieDowner post.
Alumni people were great
— but this time I’d book hotel SW Florida (St Pete/Sarasota/Clearwater) and vacation there. — and commute to the game

This all comes down to which half of our Jeckyl/Hyde team shows up. If the good football team shows up for four quarters we win. If not….likely won’t be pretty.

I am surprised on the fact that right now we are a 0.5 pt favorite.

Wonder if the oddsmakers are factoring in Breece won't play? B/C I don't think he does.

Maybe guys like Charlie and others do? I don't think one game is that risky for a TE, or a guy like Hutchinson.

Hopefully a ton of Clemson players are sitting this one out.

I've been trying to bet on Clemson but can't find the game in Iowa.

It’s your money, but for my entertainment/travel/sports money, it is worth it.

We did the repeat to Memphis out of obligation. This is a 9 win Clemson team in a warm city, last time seeing a lot of all-time Cyclones. The extra cost over that Liberty Bowl trip is worth it, and in the grand scheme of things, not that much more.
