First if all holy heat- had to keep reminding myself why we paid April prices for weather....it felt like late September most of the time.
Another- weird crowds. Seems it was packed with people, but wait times weren't bad
Had another wonderful, peaceful stay at POR. But after the first day....decided to drive to the parks every day- am sold on that idea now, much nicer. Got to the bus stop at MK and the POR was 2 stops full and the line extended all the way down and out the other end!!! jumped POFQ bus and walked home. Last time we took a bus- will be driving every time next time.
All my sanitizing paid off, no illnesses!!!
Decided to take a break from Disney in 2014 and wait until new FL is complete, and these new policies( magic bands, fp+, etc) are out for some time and working smoothly. We had planned on going to universal for 2 days this trip, and had such a wonderful time, ditched our 3erd MK day and went back. There were no lines, and no stampedes trying to simply walk around. We are currently planning our next trip there at HRH, and adding sea world, followed by a st. Pete beach/BG few days. Hope everyone had a great trip, will be back to plan our 2015 trip.
I'm glad your experience at Universal went well... I don't know if I just picked the wrong day or what, but it was crowded there too.

And the weather wasn't much better than June, so I'm kind of wondering why we bothered doing something different.
I agree about the weather and the crowds. I don't know if this year was a fluke or what, but it just "felt" different.
DH and I have a theory about the heat too. When we went during the summer in the past, we were going from heat to heat, so we were acclimated. Since we went from blizzardy temps here to scalding temps in FL, we didn't adjust as well or as quickly.
