We're Back! Our Trip Report for Oct 9-14 RPR, HHN and our Engagement! *Updated 2/11*
Hello fellow Disers! I am writing my first ever Trip Report so please be patient with me! I took notes every night and I've read so many reports here that Im sure I can figure it out!
First off, let me introduce us. Im Lauren; Im 23, and a huge Harry Potter fan! This was my 2nd trip to Universal in Florida and I have been to the Universal in Hollywood as well. Then there is Bryan, my wonderful boyfriend of 5 years who is a major X-Men and Spiderman fan. We have no children, only our very sweet and precious cat who is basically my child.
We recently got back from a trip in May and had so much fun we had to go again for my birthday! I want to say we got back the 20th and had this whole trip booked by mid-June! We flew in October 9th and stayed through the 14th. No way were we going to make that drive! We attended our first ever HHN Thursday and Friday, 10/11 & 10/12. We were so glad we planned it on those dates since we avoided hell week and because Bryan is a HUGE Silent Hill fanatic! I however am a big wimp and was so scared that I would be the one that wets her pants and gets her picture taken, but I survived!
We stayed onsite at RPR so we could get the express pass and early entry to WWoHP, but rather than just book a room and purchase our annual passes seperately we were talked into booking a package. It was nice since we got the free Three Broomsticks breakfast but when we noticed the room rates went down we weren't able to get it adjusted without canceling everything and we would have lost the king bed room. Oh well, lesson learned for next time!
Anyway, this was my first time onsite and Bryans second. Back in May, we did a split between IOA & Disney and stayed offsite. It was okay and very cost effective, but the shuttle to Disney and Universal was so long. Especially since we were the 6th and final stop after a very exhausting day, so we decided to nix Disney this trip and do both Universal and IOA parks! As much as we enjoyed Disney, we both felt it was just too big and more suited for families with children. We have officially been turned to the darkside! That being said, we are already starting to plan another trip to Universal hopefully in May and again in October! Might as well get as much use out of those annual passes that we can, right?!
