I agree Lynne.......summer clothes make for lighter suitcases It`s all the stuff we buy there that makes a difference to our luggage allowance coming home on the plane.......soon adds up!!!
We love the heat......happy with anything after our weather.......it`s freezing here again today 42f/heit.....murky foggy drizzly and downright cold!!!!! Can`t wait for our Orlando trip.
When is your trip Lynne I`ve forgotten???

On the topic of heat: Ugh! It's been super muggy up here in Ottawa, which is horrible for my wheezy asthmatic lungs. It's also going to reach a high of 82 and I have to go horseback riding in that.

It could be and WILL be worse, I suppose.

This is where the Universal addicts are.....you found us

Welcome.........nice to see a new face. Come in and make yourself at home............ We are a very friendly bunch over here



Apart from the weather I had a lovely day........went on a spending spree ......got everything on my list except new dining room curtains. Have to get them specially made but didn`t see any material I liked. That can wait though.

DH said I had a glow after all the spending

Quiet night tonight with nice bottle of red wine, pizza and central heating turned up.......you would think it was winter

Hi Shumi!
Yep, vacation isn't until the end of August. Seems still far away. Raven will ask you what a quiet night is. Glad to hear it is relaxing. I had quiet night the other night. So nice to not have anything related to school or sports that night. I will be glad when school ends. Summer is a change in routine for me, and I like having some of my evenings to just relax.

My house temparature has been crazy, the other day, had to turn on the heat, as it was way too cold for me, then yesterday, had to turn on the AC, as the house was just to darn hot. Today, it's been really warm. Last night only went down into the low 70's F.

to Kogo. We are a friendly bunch. My family really enjoys USO, and since 2 years ago, a USO stay has been a staple of our Orlando vacations. I am also an AP holder, as the benefits are worth it to me. And for the first time, we are going to visit US Hollywood. Kids are really excited. So, welcome to the darkside!

almost nightey night time here, finally! i nominate today as 'one of those days'

carole we were sweltering in the riviera maya. nearly melted climbing temple @ ek balam and poking around chichen itza, but a memorable experience. Met lots of brits at our resort. Most there for a good three to four weeks, they all seemed to take to the heat depsite telling me it was rainy and cold back home.

Can't wait to retreat to WDW and U where the trips are easy peasy. DH is rarely able to secure two vacation weeks together, hence our quick 2nd trip next friday.

Three more nights until my vacation eek!!

I already to get out of dodge. We have major flooding here. My husband sandbagged downtown for 3 hours today to protect the fore station and electrical plant from the rising river. The river will crest 8 feet above major flood stage Saturday morning. Hopefully we do not get any more rain, but it is forecast for tomorrow and Saturday. There is no end in sight. We had the horrible floods in 2008 and were without electricity for a week. Luckily so far the forecasted crest is 4 feet lower than that record, but still the second highest in history. Our farmers cannot get the fields planted.

In the past 20 years alone we have had two 100 year (statistically should occur this often) floods and two 500 year floods. Crazy weather patterns worldwide

We have enough gas to run our generator for a week. Luckily I will be gone for most of that! My husband can rough it better than I can!!!

Orlando...take me away!

*pokes back in*

This definitely looks like my kind of people.

And I like that Universal is the darkside.
This means we have cookies here, right?
Or cake... I'll take cake.

I'm quite jealous of those leaving soon. I have so long to wait.

Hello All...

Um, so I guess the "Dark Side" fans can feel safe here? I usually avoid comparisons on DIS but I just broke my own rule about not getting into an argument of US/IOA vs Disney and I realize I need an outlet for my fandom. I am somewhat knowledgeable about both so I can't help but compare. I have even (perish the thought) spent my entire vacation at HRH and US/IOA for a WEEK! I am not even close to being a teen or a tween or a parent of either. I am a 56 year old grandmother who is a theme park junkie and thrill ride afficiando.

You seem like such a close knit group, I hope I am not intruding by being here. I need a safe place.

Thank-you.

Welcome,

We spend 7-10 at RPR each summer and enjoy every bit of it. It's truly a real vacation we are not tired after.

Mac on the boards spends 14 days at RPR and she loves every minute. Also Robert on the boards here used to spend 3 weeks at RPR in the summer but the past 2 summers he has done something else. That's just to name a few. There are plenty of homies that spend lots of time onsite.

yea, we are your people.
and you'll find out what kind of homies we really are when we move to a new house.
homies that haven't been here in some time will be claiming the best rooms in the house........

we always aim for a water view when we have to pack up and start a new thread here.
dang that page limit rule...

i hear you on the "i have long to wait" for my trip.

i start planning my next trip while i am on the airplane coming home on the last trip.

agavegirl1
has arrived!!!!

let's start the party.


to our newest homie.
agavegirl1

we welcome everyone to come and play here!!
now that you have stepped foot in our mansion, you are a homie and one of us darksiders......


sometimes we will have many converstations at once but that is how we roll.

sometimes a newbie comes to ask questions here instead of making a new thread.

that is fine. we love darkside newbies to pieces.......


because many of us have been to the darkside, it has made us invisible friends in some ways.
Mr Mac tells me i have invisible friends.......

over the years, many of us have met up in person and are no longer invisible to each other.

i always look and see the posts where a homie says they will be at the darkside. i try my best to pm them and do a meet and greet while we are all down there.

i always book a private hhn tour for october.
every person that is in the tour is from the Disboards.

we connected by this thread in most cases.

now i'm gonna put you on the list, like i have with others, to look you up if you ever will be at the darkside when i go.


i do both the motherland and the darkside each fall.

stay at both of their onsite resorts and enjoy myself.

this year i am taking dates off my motherland stay to add to the darkside stay.
i can find oodles of things to do there besides the parks.

you be sure to come back here cause if you don't, i'll have to send he hounds out looking for youse!!
