I guess I should have a look at our pictures from that trip to the US, I can't imagine I still look like I did then

When I told my DH tonight about a close friend who is planning a trip to Paris and DLP, he said in a kind of jealous voice "Oh, I want to go to Eurodisneyland too" THAT was the first time ever he said he would really want to go to a Disney park Okay, a bad day at work might have helped the wish to just be somewhere else...
Hi ladies! You both have been very quiet lately on email and the DIS, so you must both still be very busy!

Katharina, such great news on the DLP trip and hubby! I know you are excited that he is finally coming around!

Sounds LOVELY! We hope to be there, and in Germany eating brats and pretzels with you and Magdalene, in 2014. It will be a multi-country trip hopefully!

I hope you are both doing well!

Ok, it has been ages, but I think I should not just leave this sitting here... There are still a few things that I want to talk about and I certainly want to finish the report about our day at Universal! But, first replies:

So, are you going to Universal?? I know that we talked about and I am afraid that I forgot. I know Glenn and family are going.

Also, I just noticed your ticker says 0 days until your trip - are you at WDW now???

I may have to add some Universal/ IoA time soon. :
I think you would love Universal/IoA. I have heard wonderful things about the nighttime show they added at Universal for the summer, so that would be an additional incentive to go there. Also, I think you like your thrills and those parks certainly deliver on them...

Got your email and will reply post haste
Yes, it was really difficult not to spend too much at Honey Dukes, there were so many cute things. But then I did not want too much candy which I would end up eating... And knowing that you have to transport it all back to another continent is also a good way to not go crazy...

But I think in the end both Katharina and I spent more money at Universal on souvenirs in that one day than we did at WDW during the rest of the trip.

Hmmm, I was going to say at the rate of my speed over the last months, you are not in danger of me finishing before you. But then you weren't the fastest writer either...

It seems that crowds really vary at Universal. I have read the board for Universal here on the DIS quite a lot before the trip and it seems that in the off season you can get days nearly as empty as ours regularly during the week. Also Sundays are supposed to be pretty good. And the common tip is to do WWoHP last as everyone goes there first when they arrive and it then empties out towards the evening.

The puking guy was hilarious!

There are other refreshments though...pumpkin juice...hog's head red and a slew of other things on tap, beer wise. Interesting tidbit. Apparently when the Hogs Head opened, they had a full bar. People apparently imbibed too much or overstayed their welcome so they got rid of all the bar stools (looks like they've since come back in your picture but there were none there when we went) and changed it to beer (and I assume wine) only as the alchoholic offerings.
We truly had a fantastic time at WWoHP due to the non existing crowds!

Interesting what you say about the Hogs Head. Maybe the other drinks will return at some point, like the bar stools did? I think there is a great opportunity for fun creations of mixed drinks!

Hope you get to go there soon! I am sure that Henry would love Dr Seuss. There is also a ride in the Jurassic Park section that is only for kids which sounds very cute. You actually need to bring a kid along to be allowed to go on it as an adult.

A grocery cart in one of them, and a stroller in another! The other one is just a bunch of junk. It's a homeless persons' stuff, and they want to keep what they do have as safe as they can. Kinda sad... but interesting that Universal has it as part of their theming! I do wonder if that is there all year long...
I still don't know whether it is for Halloween Horror Nights or permanent... Thanks for the explanation that it is actually not totally out of the extraordinary.

So we'd definitely end up with some "juggling" on our hands. I'm going to check-out Cynthia's experience ... thanks for the referral.
Glad that you are enjoying the pictures! So, have you made up your mind whether to take the family there or not? I guess it can always wait a few years. The older the kids get, the more likely they will enjoy all the thrill rides.

Yes it is lots of fun - and now your trip is just around the corner!! I am really looking forward to hearing your thoughts about it!
