Granma and Gramps wdw lovers do the dark side :) 10/12 10/17 with HHN

Hubby 56 me 53 rrived on 12 didnt do parks first day, did 4 days ,
we stayed at Hard Rock Hotel.. great room 2112 with awesome view, house keeping great, one girl in the store awesome , easy check in, we used Quick transportation late at pck up from airport no calll , had to call them , ride back to airport much better very nice man. the rest all down hill wont stay again.
We did IOA first day, a few pro and cons
we found rest rooms dirty over all for not being very busy, very hard to find anyone to help us with directions or info. Express pass awesome !!smaller than WDW but good selection of rides. No one checked my bag?? kinda werid. At WDW securtiy much tighter.We did not get meal deal , glad we didnt, had one of the hamburgers , its yucky.
Spidey was awesome rode over and over, Popeye & Bluto we got soaked no dry spots on this one lol, it was long and fun Jurasic river ride glad i didnt chicken out it was awesome.Harry Potter area FANTASTIC i could not ride the ride didnt fit i have back implants and battery pack implant to much pressure on thison green light, maybe next time but we walked all the way thru well worth the walk Didnt care for Sinbad show.Mystic fountan was funny with the kids that were there fun watching them I asked it what time the 2 pm parade started that day and it got quiet , and then said hu um then i got a big squirt lol.Poseidens adven, good.Olivanders we did late in evening short lines the little girl they picked was so impressed it was cute.Flight of the Hippogriff very short but fun

Hhn

First timers,
it was aweome, we had stay and scream i think they called it waited by Finnagins we also had fast pass worked very well the later it got
my best house Alice, Hubbys was silent hill. Bill and Teds show was good , Hubby wasnt up on some of the stuff , but he enjoyed anyway.I forget which house , but my head was grabbed from the ceiling scary lol.the walks to each place was very long , i am hanicap so was a little hard on me , but i guess they need long lines for when it is busy.Some one broke their leg ankle in Walking dead so it was shut down for a while. I wish it was a little lighter in there so i could of seen better the effects, but still good. Found if you wernt young and cute the street people didnt pay much attention to people to scare.. or the tall ones on stilts werent to interseted in staying there for a oic with older people we noticed.I couldnt walk withe the 3d glasses, but it was till fun.over all the people attending were on good behavor and we found many visitors very helpful to answer any questions , and we saw only two sets of young people get escorted away with the police, not a big sceen just off they went . It was something we wouldnt normally do , but i am glad we did we enjoyed ourselves alot

bag checks for the hotel guests are done at the boat dock prior to getting on the water taxi or at the walkway before you get to the parks.

the baot check are very random, one lady stroller was packed and went on thru , every one else purse was a peek inside , we did boat all but one time as i am handicap.. the ont time we had a bike ride person and there was a single man at the side of Universal he checked my fanny pack (yes i use one ) , and we were the only ones as we walked up to the park we saw no other checks but we did see a police dog. an at HHN there was ALOT OF POILCE AND SECURITY that was nice to see . just our own comparison . we were there 4 days
