2 days, like 20+ rides, this place is nuts.

Hot, HOT Florida weather was finally becoming second nature to us, we weren’t cooking as bad as Disney, but it was still hot. Universal Studios is, for the most part, split into 2 distinct areas. There is the Islands of Adventure, and theA�Universal Studios FloridaA�which are split with a store front walkway withA�restaurantsA�and the like. Both parks are great, but logically we decided to go to one on each day.

Disney, Disney, DISNEY!!!

Ok, so I amA�writingA�this post on the eve of our final day at Disney World, Florida. Three action packed days and no, we did not see it all! So day 1, we spent the day at Magic Kingdom– home of Cinderella’s Castle, Pirates of the Caribbean and the spinning tea cups. One of the most iconic parks of Disney, what wasA�meantA�to only be a 1/2 day- turned into a full day in a blink of an eye. starting in Tomorrow land, our first ride was with Buzz Lightyear andA�becomingA�a StarA�Commander followed by a visit to the Monsters Inc. laugh floor. With the day moving along, we headed to the Disney Hollywood Studios where weA�experiencedA�the Star Wars ‘Star Tours’ ride, watched the 3d Muppets show and got a autograph and photo with Buzz and Woody from Toy Story (autograph for Nephew Oliver).

Orlando, Florida – we landed here on Friday, after catching the 4.5hr Red Eye from Las Vegas, and it was not a perfect start to our Orlando visit.

    Cheap evista and

  1. Our flight was delayed 1hr so we did not depart Vegas till after midnight, on the positive side, we had time for a Mani-Pedi and massage at the airport before leaving.
  2. Shitbags on our flight who decided to turn on and off their lights and giggle at their iPad’s watching movies (come on, it the red eye flight- SLEEP). Then;
  3. We arrive at our hotel at 9am to be told we can not check in till 2pm (by paying an early check-in fee or 4pm with no fee) so on the positive, with only having 2hrs of sleep, I did a load of washing (YAY). Once our washing was finished I decided to ask if there was ANY possible way to get into our room, A�no matter the cost- to have a different front desk employee check us in at noon (no fee) ARGH!!!

So we are here. Friday that wasA�meantA�to be our first day at Disney wasA�destroyed – so now ourA�jobA�is to fit 6 paid days of parks into 5, on the positive we had our 1 and only meal at Sizzler – Yummo, we want to re-open one back in Tas.
