Smile Just the two of us. Part 10

Part 10 Day 7 Thursday 05th October

Woken up the alarm at 07.30 we dressed quickly and were out by 07.55.



With one wrong turn, I hadn’t thought to take directions as we had already been there, we were at the Courthouse at 08.50. There was another couple in front of us and one already been married so after checking in and paying $30.00 we had to wait around 25 mins.





At 09.30 it was time for us and at 09.37 we were done! Gavin said that for a split second before I said ‘I will’ he wondered if I was having second thoughts as I hesitated. I was about to marry my best friend, why would I have second thoughts?, In reality I was quietly clearing my throat so the words came out nice and clear!

The clerk took a couple of photo’s during and after the ceremony but the ones during didn’t come out too good.



Onto the Hard Rock Hotel now. When we got there at 10.30 our room was ready which was a big bonus but the key card printing system was down so a Bellperson took us up and let us in. The room was fantastic but at $405.00 for the night it should have been! It was a King Size deluxe room (newly refurbed) but for anyone wondering the King Size bed at Pop was bigger.









The mini-bar was well stocked and at first glance appeared not too expensive, Gavin even had two bottles of water during the night. But when you read the small print, you had to pay tax (we were expecting that) and an 18% service charge for getting the stuff out of the fridge yourself! I complained about that in my email response too their questionnaire.





About 30 mins later we had a call to say the Key system was working and we could collect ours anytime. We went down to collect it straight away then relaxed by the pool with a drink and had some lunch.

Cokes X2 - $4.52
Coors Lite X2 - $9.00
Chicken Strips & Fries - $12.95
Pizza - $11.95
Fries - $4.95
Tax - $3.33
Auto 18% Service - $7.81
Total - $54.51









Around 14.00 we headed back up for a rest. Played around on the internet for a while then emailed our parents to tell them we were married (it wasn’t a surprise for them, they knew we were getting married today!) and listened to the Chris Moyles Show on listen again. During our rest I headed downstairs and picked us up a Starbucks each and myself a Hard Rock Hotel T-Shirt (lost receipts).

Chicken Strips - $9.00
Chicken and Mac ‘n’ Cheese - $15.00
Chicken Fajitas - $15.00
Cokes X2 - $5.38
Apple Cobbler - $6.00
Tax - $3.67

Total - $60.05 plus tip.











They brought Gavin out the wrong starter but he got to keep the Onion Rings for free so he was happy.

Stuffed we strolled back to the water taxi’s via the Universal shop were Gavin bought his second souvenir a Universal Studio’s Florida T-Shirt and I got a bright red Thing 1 T-Shirt $42.50.

Water Taxi came straight away and we were back in our King Size Deluxe, Very expensive room by 22.00.

Ahhhhh!! That sound like my sort of wedding! Hope you will be very happy together and may there be many more trip reports!! By the way, i like the way you say you went back to the room for a "rest"....we believe you

Plasma TV looks great, although the bathroom doesn't look very different from the one's before the refurb.
