The hotel looks beautiful! I had to laugh when you sped past the security checkpoint. Totally something I would do!

I wonder why you are feeling depressed? Could it be that you are betraying Mickey and cheating with Harry Potter?


Ooooh celebrities?! Can't wait to find out who!

Oh my god, minibars are just terrible aren't they? I can't believe they charge so much for things. It's crazy.

The hotel looks very pretty. i've seen lots of pictures of it, but haven't actually be there before.

Your DH sounds just like my dad. He always wanted to take the route to have us lug everything rather than just paying someone to help us out. You definitely feel like a pack mule.

WOW! The resort is beautiful!!!

I've never really gotten into the whole Universal thing, because I just can't be in Orlando and not be in Disney, but that resort is starting to change my mind! It's gorgeous!

Love the room! The modern decor is really pretty.

Oh the mini bar...love the pic! You guys are too cute!

SEVEN DOLLARS?!?!? For WATER?? I mean, I know it's Fiji water, but still! I can buy two cases for almost that much at Wegmans!!!

I love the silent married conversation...I can totally picture that.

for saving 5 bucks!

That pool looks SO FUN! OMG it's so tropical and gorgeous! If I ever am talked into going to Universal for more than just a day, RPR is where I want to stay.

HAHAHA "Ma'am, excuse me Ma'am!!" LOL. I would TOTALLY do the exact same thing, that is so funny! Good thing you weren't actually a thief!

MMMMM...Margaritaville! I love the atmosphere there, so tropical and fun! I seem to be noticing that a lot in this update. LOL.

Woah, that pickle IS huge! YUMMM.

What a great first day! I can't wait to hear about the next one!

Wow, I cannot believe I missed your start by a few days and I'm already stuck down on page 6!

Ya know, I totally didn't understand how "southern" people in NC were until I moved here. I am from Georgia originally so I know what country looks like. I just didn't know it extended up to NC too. And I totally know what you mean about the connotation of "redneck". It means very different things to different people.

Loving everything so far! Not sure if you remember, but you recommended to me to read the Harry Potter series instead of just watching the movies (in your December TR). I am so glad I took your advice! I've been reading the series and watching the movies only in between. I am on book 5, Order of the Pheonix and I like the books so much more (but they're also neat to see, of course). All through the movies I sit and commentate on how "this was different in the book" or "they explained that so much better in the book". Luckily, my DH doesn't care and even appreciates when I can make something clearer than it was in the movie. I can't wait to go to IOA in October now to see the land. So, I'm glad your including your Universal section in your TR.

You are hilarious, by the way! Love your writing style.

Hi, love your report I always like hearing about things outside Disney especially HP since we'll be there in sept.

We're the same with tipping, in England tipping is just not something you do that much unless your in a restaurant or a fancy hotel. We could'nt understand why the shuttle driver expected a tip when it was included in our package holiday He ended up being so miserable and chucking our bags on the pavement he didn't get a tip. Plus I never know how much, I don't want to insult the person by giving too little, or end up going over the top.

Get well soon, can't wait for the next installment!

Joni told me today that she is feeling better, but still not 100% to do the next installment. She hopes to be here soon!
