Learn more about Kennedy, his story, and his latest projects below. The Plaza Live

From Vine to Touring

Trey Kennedy’s comedy career started when he gained popularity on the social media app Vine. His six-second comedic videos got him quite the following. After Vine shut down in 2017, Kennedy had to resort to other social media platforms to ensure he was still reaching his audience and creating fun and uplifting content for everyone to enjoy.

Since then, he has continued to make people laugh on platforms such as YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok. Kennedy has seen incredible success on each platform, but he has an especially impressive following on YouTube with over 500,000 subscribers and millions of views. Going from super-short video clips to full-length viral videos, he’s certainly created one remarkable portfolio.

Making videos to share with the world is definitely a strong suit of Kennedy’s, and he has recently expanded his platform to the stage. After joining John Crist on several tour dates, Kennedy is finally ready to hit the road on a solo tour.

Content and Connection

Kennedy has worked hard to grow his following over multiple platforms. In fact, he recently started hosting the Correct Opinions podcast, which has landed a spot in the top 100 comedy podcasts in four major countries, including the United States. Sharing his content on multiple platforms has allowed Kennedy to connect to a larger audience and build a personal connection with his fans.

Continue the Fun at Rosen

Make an extended weekend out of your trip to see Trey Kennedy live.

Kid and Mom in Hotel Bed

Even best planned trips experience hiccups and lulls caused by unpredictable weather. Sometimes even life gets in the way. Summertime in Florida is well known for its rainy afternoons. On rare occasions, days might be completely rained out. Hopefully rainy days won’t wash away your best plans.

If you travel with family, we suggest embarking on vacations to Orlando, the beach, or anywhere else with an activity pack for the kids. Activity packs can include markers, crayons, watercolor paints, paper, small toys, etc.

To help you with a backup plan, we’ve got ideas to help keep your family entertained on grey days. These ideas also work well if you’re stuck at home and trying to figure out how to entertain your little ones.

Scavenger Hunt

Stake out the hotel beforehand and familiarize yourself with the location of ice and soda machines, vending machines, the laundry room, fitness and meeting rooms, and fire extinguishers. Then create a list of items to find with some clues on how to find them. Be sure to have enough prizes for everyone playing.

Extra Points: Create a passport and include some items that allow kids to safely interact with the hotel staff to find items.

Movie Time

Midpointe Hotel, a Rosen Property, offers guests access to many movie channels including family-friendly ones. If the weather outside is frightful, turn the mood around indoors with a happy-go-lucky film or use it to your advantage to host an age-appropriate scary film screening.

Extra Points: Purchase popcorn from the nearby convenience store and get soda from the machine for the full movie theater experience.


When traveling, we may typically keep reading material handy to keep us busy while in long car rides or waiting for flights. Books are an excellent way to keep the mind engaged when not much is going on, so bring an extra book or two for yourself and the kids for unexpected downtime.

Fort Night

Not to be confused with Fortnite, this classic game turns a room upside down and inside out as seat cushions, towels, and blankets become construction materials for your very own fort.

Extra Points: Build an amazing fort that connects the beds!

Dinner Show

If your kids are budding thespians, this activity should be perfect for them. Let them choose a play, show, or make up their own skit to perform over a meal enjoyed in your guestroom.

Extra Points: Let the kids dress up in your clothes and use your makeup so they can really get into character.

Board Games and Cards

Packing for a trip is always a chore in and of itself. Along with carefully planned outfits and toiletries, we suggest bringing a board game or at least a deck of cards. Use these games on days or nights when you’re staying in with the kiddos.

Extra Points: Make your own jumbo versions of classic games, like Tic-Tac-Toe, with scrap paper and pens found around the room and use the floor as your board.

Pet Rocks

Back in days long gone, pet rocks were sold to many kids looking for a unique friend. Today, we can recreate the nostalgic memories without spending a dime. By getting crafty with what’s already available to you, an afternoon could be turned into a creative escape. Collect your favorite rocks from around the hotel. Bring them in and clean them with soap and water. Afterward, decorate the rocks using markers, crayons, or even nail polish.

Extra Points: Hide your rocks around the hotel for others to find.

Family-Friendly Hotel

Midpointe Hotel is at the center of all the action. Here you’re minutes away from world-famous theme parks and an exit away from Interstate 4, Orlando’s major highway. I-Ride, International Drive’s trolley service, offers extremely affordable transportation to nearby attractions, shopping, and entertainment.

Planning an Orlando family reunion requires organization. Nothing beats bringing a family together to celebrate an anniversary or milestone, enjoy each other’s company, explore and experience new things, and swap stories of past adventures. Indeed, a family reunion is one of the most amazing ways for extended family members to reconnect, spend time together, and make new memories, especially if regularly separated by distance and busy schedules. And what better place to meet up than in sunny Orlando, Florida — home to world-famous theme parks, hotels, and attractions?

If you are thinking of planning a family reunion in Orlando, then here are a few things that you should add to your checklist in order to pull off the best and most memorable Orlando family reunion.

Planning an Orlando Family Reunion

How to Organize an Orlando Family Reunion

The first step in planning an Orlando family reunion is to reach out to each member of your family to decide when everyone can come to Central Florida. It may get tricky juggling group text, email chain, or message thread RSVPs from all directions, so to keep planning streamlined and efficient. You should designate a single representative from each household of your extended family to coordinate the planning. Once you and the other heads of household are set, you should:

  • Establish a primary means of mass communication. As mentioned, emails are an effective way of reaching out to family because most everyone has an email address. When drafting an email, it’s important to include all the necessary information, like the time, location, and date that works best. Including additional links and information such as what to do, bring, or wear can also be helpful.
  • Take detailed notes. Emails are a great way to log information and keep tabs on what was discussed. For example, if someone forgot what was discussed, they could just refer back to the email chain. However, keeping note of family member preferences will lessen any confusion. Using a traditional notepad or a notes app on a smartphone can be a simple solution to staying organized and keeping tally of who is available and who is not.
  • Reach out by phone. If emails don’t get a quick enough response, calling your family is also effective. Hearing each other’s voices makes the conversation more personal and allows you to generate excitement and go deeper into the conversation.
  • Create an online invitation and email it to all family members. Once the details of your Orlando family reunion are set, you can send out an electronic invitation, or evite, to the entire family. This is a great way to officially announce the reunion and get everyone on board and excited for the big event.

Orlando Family Reunion T-Shirt Ideas

Family reunions in Orlando are the perfect place for custom matching t-shirts. Whether you choose to wear them at a theme park or while walking down International Drive, they are a great way to keep track of family members in crowded areas while showcasing familial pride. Orlando Family Reunion T-Shirt Ideas

There are three main elements that go into the design of a custom shirt: text, images, and colors. However, when designing a custom family reunion t-shirt, the first step is to decide on a theme. Following a theme can help your family decide on what to wear and make planning a whole lot easier.

Themes should also correspond to the interests of your family members and highlight the reason for your reunion. For example, if your reunion involves a trip to Walt Disney World to celebrate a birthday milestone, then a Disney-inspired shirt design with a clever slogan related to your event would make the most sense. Poll your family members to get an idea of their color preference. Brainstorm together on image and text ideas to create an agreeable design that appeals to everyone.

If Disney is your destination, your shirts could simply feature a set of Mickey ears on the front with your family’s last name across the back. Or, you can take the design a step further by customizing individual shirts for each family member that features their favorite Disney character on the front.

If you need help with ideas, there are many outlets that offer shirt templates and design ideas. Websites such as Pinterest and Etsy are great online resources where you can look for customized shirt options. Craft stores also offer kits for do-it-yourself creations that your family can work on together while creating fun memories.

Following along with the Disney theme, once your custom t-shirts are designed, you can complete your outfit by adding some related accessories such as Mickey Mouse ears or Goofy hats.

Best Orlando Family Reunion Decorations

A family reunion is not complete without fun decorations. Party and craft stores offer fun decorating supplies that your whole family will enjoy.

There are many unique ways of decorating for a family reunion. For instance, if your family is meeting up and caravanning to Orlando from the same location, then start the celebration early by decorating your vehicles. By using puff paint, you can dress up cars with fun and clever messages about your family reunion that will help make a long road trip go by faster. The washable paint allows you to create 3D designs on different surfaces and washes off easily.

Decorative balloons are a classic way to liven up family reunions and add color to meeting spaces and hotel rooms. Streamers also act as great accents and adds a pop of color that goes along with your theme. Also, party favors like leis or beads are fun types of wearable decorations that your family can keep.

Best Orlando Family Reunion Gifts

With so many souvenir shops throughout Orlando, there is no reason to let family leave the reunion empty-handed. After all, it’s important to commemorate such a momentous occasion with a keepsake that each family member can cherish as a reminder of the reunion. Best Orlando Family Reunion Gifts

When it comes to finding gifts for your family, think about what your family likes and stick to a budget. For larger families, gifts under $5 can work well. Conversely, smaller families may be able to receive more expensive gifts.

Whichever route you go, there are different options that every member of your family can enjoy. Kids love gift bags as they can hold a variety of items such as candy, stationary, or toys, while adult family members often appreciate more practical gifts that they find useful. Personalized family photos always add a nice touch and are a great way to remember the exciting times you and your family had at the reunion.

Best Orlando Family Reunion Meals

Of course, everyone needs to eat. Depending on the size of your family, dining out may take some strategic planning. Fortunately, Orlando is a well-known for family-friendly dining, casual eateries, and themed restaurants. From Disney Spring to Universal CityWalk and along International Drive, Orlando has many choices that can accommodate a large gathering, create a comfortable atmosphere, and serve tasty food to your reunion party. Such restaurants include the welcoming Italian restaurant Maggiano’s at Pointe Orlando, and Mango’s Tropical Cafe on I-Drive — an exciting restaurant and nightclub for those over 21 in your family.

While dining out is the most popular choice, there are alternative dining options for family reunions in Orlando. Ordering a catered meal can be a viable option when there are many mouths to feed and not everyone wants to leave the hotel. Furthermore, asking family members to bring a prepared dish can make travel cumbersome, especially with meals that require refrigeration. Ultimately, eating out provides the fastest, easiest, and most entertaining dining option for your Orlando family reunion.

Best Places to Stay for an Orlando Family Reunion

A family reunion in Orlando can only be made perfect by staying in a comfortable hotel close to all the action. Midpointe Hotel is located a short distance from all the International Drive restaurants and other exciting attractions that Orlando has to offer. So, get ready to enjoy an affordable and exciting time in Orlando with your entire family, complete with all the comforts of home.

The Amway Center is set to sizzle this summer when legendary artist Janet Jackson brings her highly anticipated world tour to Orlando on Friday, June 26, 2020. The City Beautiful is the second scheduled stop of the North American leg of Miss Jackson’s Black Diamond World Tour, which is in support of her new album of the same name. Jackson encourages her fans to not miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity.

Black Diamond Tour Highlights

Set to launch on Wednesday, June 24 in Miami, Florida and conclude on Sunday, August 23, Jackson’s concert is sure to dazzle audiences with live performances of new music from her yet-to-be-released album, “Black Diamond,” as well as old-school R&B hits from her 12 multi-platinum album catalogue.

The tour also coincides with the 30th anniversary of Jackson’s successful “Rhythm Nation 1814” album, which premiered back in 1989. To commemorate the milestone, each concert will include a special performance of the massive hit “Rhythm Nation” — an unforgettable track that struck a match to Jackson’s career and continues to generate excitement and intensify energy in fans worldwide.

Jackson’s Versatile Career

As the youngest member of the legendary Jackson family, Janet was determined to set herself apart from her successful brothers as a recognized entertainer in the music industry. Beginning as a child actress in prime time shows like Good Times and Fame before embarking on a successful journey as a singer and songwriter, Jackson has been able to bounce between both industries while building a career that is recognized based on her first name alone.

Proving her unique musicality in record-breaking hits like “Nasty,” “Control,” and “What Have You Done For Me Lately,” Jackson has shined tremendously as one of the world’s most esteemed recording artists. In addition to Miss Jackson’s accomplishments as an entertainer, she further complements her career with roles as a published author, dancer, businessperson, and philanthropist.

Jackson’s Personal Journey

From the lips of the Grammy artist herself, Jackson remarked how her new album is an act of showing her strength as well as giving her listeners strength. She further sings its praises in an Instagram post by addressing “I see myself as a Black Diamond in the purest form. I’m a rock. I have ruff edges but I keep moving forward.” Towards the end of her post, Jackson expressed how she’s excited to share this new era in her life and can’t wait to hit cities in the coming months, inspiring fans more to tune in for the latest updates until she finally steps foot in Central Florida.
