My family have pointed out the error in my thinking tonight

They got out the dvd`s tonight with all the pictures on them of all our Orlando pics...........thousands of them

So I have duly apologised for causing them upset and Orlando is back on plan for next year again....hopefully Sept into October.

What was I thinking

Oh and washed and waxed DW's vehicle this morning before the movie.
oops....
i missed reading this earlier.

i love getting the early bird price at the movies.
i love it so much i splurge on the concession stand cause i saved ticket money.


what time is the pool cookout?
set a plate for me.

if i start driving now, i could be there in about 24 hours.

will you be able to sleep in on any of the days or will you automatically get up before dawn as usual?


hope your weekend is great metro!
Unfortunately my inner clock continues to wake me at or before my regular time so no sleeping in for me.

I got a lot of stuff accomplished today. Mowed the grass, cleared off the roof and a job every homeowner loves...cleaned out the gutters.

Now that most of the work stuff is done, I'm going to enjoy myself for the rest of the weekend.

Thanks for the welcomes!

I will be in Florida in June AND September!! That 50% off hotel code let me have two trips this year yea!

Next week my oldest son and I are heading to universal alone to celebrate his successful completion of his first year of junior high. He weaned off of ADHD and anxiety Meds last trimester and kept a 3.8 GPA. I'm very proud of his hard work! I figure its my last chance to enjoy him alone before he turns into a major teenager

Our September trip is me and the 12, 10 and 7 yr old kids. My DH is a high school volleyball coach, so we are going away by ourselves this year. My oldest thinks he wants to try hhn while the littles have a sitter. We shall see how brave he is!

that's great you are going next week!

sending mummy dust that it will be sunshine and no rain for youse while there.


you and your son will have a lot of fun together.
it is really nice to have a one on one trip with your oldest child.



UO recommends hhn for 13 and up.
check out some of last years threads for some pics and what posters had to say about the event.

the mom is the one that knows her kids the best to make the decision if the event will be too scary or not for them.


i've gone with friends on some nights over the past years.

keishashadow and alexandnessa and donaldduck52's wife did get some scares but they didn't wet their pants.

Thanks for the info on hhn Mac! We will follow all the hhn forums we can to see what the themes are, then he will watch the movies.

The problem with going by myself is that I am vision impaired (I have a service dog) so I can't see anything coming, and I can't get through the houses! The scare actors wouldn't have much fun trying to scare me. but I do jump when I see any shadow... So every night seems like Halloween to me anyways!

We made it to the Motherland! And it is HOT! Welcome change from the weather up North.

The little guy made the 20 hour trip beautifully! He went to EPCOT this morning and his first swim in the pool. I'll post a few photos as I upload them.

Here is one from South of the Border!

Hi everyone,
I've been reading this thread and you guys seem like a lot of fun. I actually first checked out this thread 6 years ago before our first Universal trip. Life and other things got in the way, and we haven't been back to Universal since 2007. We loved Universal then, and now, with Harry Potter, the Simpsons and The Despicables, it sounds even better. We do like WDW as well and spent a week in 2009 on property. Anyway, I have recently been offered a teaching job near Ocala. We are so excited to be so close, especially my 10 year old daughter. We hope to get Universal annual passes partly because my sister has them. She lives in Winter Springs about 30 minutes from Universal. So I would like to get to know you guys better now that I am soon to be a "regular"-I hope!
