As if you haven't seen enough Top 10 of 2011 lists lately, here’s a quick recap of news and events that made 2011 extra-special for the Frog Family. All we can say is "What a year!" Thanks for being part of it!

The new UndercoverTourist.com was introduced mid-November with park hours on the home page, new Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando Resort theme park pages and current wait times on the attraction pages. (Read more about it here.) Then just two weeks later, Leap unveiled his Crowd Calendar which gives expected crowd levels, recommended parks and 6 easy steps to Skip the Lines. (Here's some helpful information about Leap's Crowd Calendar.)

2. Frog Family Begins Fun Give-Away Contests

The Frog Family loves a good contest…we also love giving stuff away! So the introduction of t-shirt, hat and app giveaway contests was a highlight of our year. We have LOTS more coming in this department, so stay tuned on Facebook and Twitter.

3. Mommy Frog Attends Taping of Ellen DeGeneres Show The Ellen DeGeneres Show at Universal Orlando Resort

While Leap and the kids spent the day at Islands of Adventure, Mommy Frog was lucky enough to attend the annual taping of the Ellen DeGeneres Show at Universal Orlando Resort. From dancing during commercial breaks to screaming like a teenager every time Ellen walked onto the stage, it was an experience she won’t soon forget.

10. Frog Family Gets to Know the "Other Orlando"

This year the Frog Family we made a point to take a few day (and night) trips to some smaller attractions. Two of our favorites were our day at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex and our evening at Arabian Nights Dinner Show. Both were well worth it!

Thanks for hopping along with us in 2011!

Leap, Mommy Frog, Tad and Lily
