I'll be at AKV- Kidani Village this year, and next year when I go with a friend we'll be attempting to stay at Bay Lake Tower, and we may try to sneak in a universal day. I've only been to the one in CA a few years ago but i hear the HP stuff is pretty neat.

Awesome so you are A dvc member? thats cool i wish I was. I would love to stay at AKV I have yet to try it there. I have stayed at most of the on sites tho, been going since 1980. Since we started going to Universal as well I have been sticking to moderates at Disney. i liek teh onsites at universal but they are really pricey. they are def worth it tho for the free fast pass privelage. The Harry potter land is asolutely amazing. you definitely have to see it. IMO the Forbidden Journey is the best attraction in the country, never seen anything like it. Its just unbelievable. Helps if you like HP but I didnt watch them til after I went there lol. September is truly the best time to go. going to food and wine? thats my favorite Disney event. I liek to catch Taylor Dayne...i loved her when i was a teenager lol

I am a DVC owner, and I love it I have to admit. I haven't been to food and wine but I always see Taylor Dane on the list of performers and I'm always sad that I'm missing her, I wanted her to tell it to my heart...

I will definitely be picking your brain more when I get around to planning the next trip, hopefully Universal will be part of it.

yes definitely anytime...Im quite a Universal freak...but I am here on the Dis lol I do love Disney just as much but i do feel like Im into Universal more than most.

LOL that was too funny, she does still sing that one(why wouldnt she i guess)...she looked really good last year i was amazed. noone really watches her its not even half full but somehow she seems to be there every year. Epcots my favorite park...Im very opposite the norm on here it seems but sometimes I just stay at Universal for a week and take a day for epcot and a day for the animal kingdom(my 2nd fave). Im not a huge fan of hollywood studios. MK is a given theres nothing not to like abot that. It was nice meeting you tho! I hope you have a great trip!

Where do you usually stay?
I understand what you mean. I thought that I would never go to Halloween Horror Nights either, and I wouldn't if I had to pay for it. I get in "free" with my "team member" badge, and it costs $10 to take my husband with me so we are going to the Halloween Horror Nights employee preview tonight.

I just have to remember that the "scare-actors" are just people that I have probably seen around the park for the past five months since I work at the front gate of Universal Studios and eat in the "team member" cafeteria and that they are just doing a job. As long as they don't do anything criminal like try to grab me, I should be fine. Many of them are youngsters young enough to be my children. Advertisements for "scare-actor" auditions have been running in the employee newsletter so I might could have been one myself if I had tried, and I am not a very scary person in real life.

I had fun. I was a little nervous about seeing violent scenes because, like Jay, I get angry around violent people and, in a classic case of violence begetting violence, I start thinking "Oh, so since you are so fond of pain, here is my gift to you sucker!" I don't have to get physical to be guilty,but the emotional violence that I am capable of is still violence so I end up feeling bad later.

Jay, after going through a couple of the haunted houses, I started looking forward to the next thing to do so I suspect that you would enjoy Halloween Horror Nights. I was startled a couple of times, but I was not screaming and thinking that I should not have entered. I just jumped when jumped at. That's all. The theming was excellent.

Anyway I am single, only partially out right now but I am in the process of completely coming out and set October 11, 2011 as my target date since that is National coming out day (I think). Anyway, a few things about me:
I am a Fine Arts Painting and Drawing major, I have a horrible part time job, recently lost a lot of weight (130lbs), and constantly deal with the line "Why do you like Disney so much?", which really drives me crazy. But that is just a little about me, here is more:

Favorite Disney Park: Tie - Animal Kingdom or Magic Kingdom
Favorite Disney Movie: Beauty and the Beast
Favorite Disney Princess: Ariel
Favorite Disney Character: Donald Duck
Favorite Disney Attraction: Tie - Big Thunder Mountain or The Great Movie Ride

Here is a picture of me with Cindy's Stepmother and stepsisters:
Welcome neighbor! I'm over in Pittsburgh. Good luck coming out!

Love that you enjoy Hunchback! It's such an overlooked Disney film and is also one of my favorites. 'God Bless the Outcasts' sung by Bette Midler... such a great nod to all of us 'outcasts'.

HA! You have no idea, lol. I'm glad to know others out there love Hunchback, too. I'm a huge fan of the original novel (my fave book of all time), but I also love what Disney did with it, despite how much it strays. The music is their best ever. And Quasi is such a sweetheart.

I'm determined to play Quasi in the stage version of the film! I hope someday Disney brings the German production to Broadway...I doubt it'll happen, but a guy can dream, right?
