    Hi Everyone :wave2: I will be reporting from glorious Florida soon, I start my LOONNNNNNgggg drive down July 5. I am so not looking forward to it but I gotta get to Florida somehow.

    My sis and her family (DH, DD17 DS16) , as well as my DH are flying down. My DS (17) and my DD ( 21 ) plus my mom ( 72 ) are driving so we can partake in the natural beauty of truck stops, roadkill, and overpriced outlet malls. :lmao: No, it was really to sneak in some Darkside time..I love me some Darkside!!

    Here are my ADRS/Schedule: I am going to send updates from Universal, at least that is my plan. There won't be any fancy food reporting there, alas, since I think this will be more of a CS style trip.

    July 6 Offsite by Universal
    July 7 Onsite Universal RPH ( IOA/US)
    July 8 Onsite RPH ( IOA/US )
    July 9 ( IOA ) then move offsite to Residence Inn LBV
    July 10 POR check in - Wishes Dessert Party
    July 11 MK -Crystal Palace Dinner
    July 12 Coral Reef Dinner
    July 13 Mama Melrose Fantasmic Lunch, 50's Prime Time
    July 14 Princess Dinner Akerhouse ( sp? )
    July 15 Princess Breakfast Akerhouse ( sp again? ) , Chefs de France, OHana
    July 16 Offsite maybe Seaworld.

    And somewhere in there Drinking around the World. Barb, if my texts get a little slurry I promise you that I am not as think as you drunk I am . :lmao:

    WHOAAAA NELLIE!! I sure change hotels. A LOT! I knew that, off course but to see it here makes me dizzy!!

    I have to warn you that I KNOW I am going to have meal drama. I KNOW it as sure as I know that Brad Pitt is cute. EVERY STINKING time I go out for a meal with my sis something goes wrong. Raw food, Hairy food, Cold Food, bad service etc it WILL HAPPEN. Plus there are 9 of us and something is bound to go wrong, the odds are against us.

    Anyway, it's nice to " meet" all of you! To Barb I have to say this "YOU ROCK and are totally Amazing, TOTALLY" ..and to my fellow July reporters Keep Calm and ignore the gal from Indiana that is passed out in Epcot Germany mumbling about 12 beers in 12 countries. (( just kidding, people..about being passed out that is, not about the 12 beers ))

    That drive is a lot of sacrifice for the darkside! We fly every time, but when I was younger my parents drove. Central Indiana to Orlando feels like it takes forever! You drive through KY and TN and are like "hey! This isn't too bad." Then comes GA, THE. LONGEST.STATE.EVER. :rotfl:

    Have a safe trip! If you see me, say hi. I will be the girl from Indiana in Mexico mumbling about how I remember why I never drink tequila (after having too many margaritas in La Cava, of course!):rotfl2:
