Gina your report was excellent, it almost made me feel like i was there and part of the family as well. We are planning a trip in another year or two. Makes me kinda hesitant tho. The first time we were down there we missed a huge hurricane by 10 days and the day we left they started mandatory evacuations for another one. In fact our plane was the last plane to leave Orlando that day and when we went down in Dec 2010 they said it was the record low temperature in 26 years. I have a question or 2 for you. I am sure I read it somewhere but how did you book your trip with Hawthorn, thru wyndam website or call the hotel directly? We are planning on doing a Disney/ Universal trip with a few extras. Do you have any other tips that could help us out. Thanks again for the great report I really enjoyed it.
