I was reading squitty's thread regarding the Quality Inn on I-Drive and it got me thinking. You see, recently my wife and I took our family to Orlando for the first time. 18 years ago, my DW and I spent 2 weeks there for our honeymoon and vowed that when we had kids and they were old enough, we would return. This time we were in a villa on Poinciana Blvd, but prevoiusly [17 years ago] we had stayed at what was known then as "The Low Q" - the Quality Inn on I-Drive. Of course, we had to take a look at this on our recent trip...but neither of us could recognise anything in the area!! Obviously things are going to change during such a long period, but really it was just SO different to what we remembered. I had a memory of the QI having a car park at the front [complete with 90 year old security guard] and that that part of I-Drive had a grassy central reservation. There was a restaurant opposite which was queued out one night so we went to a Pizza Hut on the same side as the QI. I think we saw that the Hut is still there, but can't be sure if was the same one. The whole of I-Drive actually looked different...Obviously the Convention Centre wasn't there before but, in general, we agreed that the whole area was more downmarket than we remembered. I suppose we were a lot younger and one's memory does weird things sometimes. Another thing while I'm in this reflective mood is the Disney rides which aren't there now. I did touch on this on another thread a while ago but do you remember the likes of: 20,000 Leagues; Mission to Mars; Swan Boats; Horizons? Oh, there must be so many more.
