    I was going to pull up an old thread on off-site trip reports and add a few, but when I went looking for it I found two of them -- the one I remembered was over a year old, and there's been at least one since. So I decided to start another one yet and link to those. Post enough of them, and maybe eventually someone will take the hint and fulfill mikkiwikki's request for a non-Disney Trip Report forum. :p

    The ones I was going to add were this one, which is for Bonnet Creek (with one night in Red Roof Inn, IIRC):

    And my own, which is technically a pre-trip report but I decided I'd do our last two trips on it, so I'll eventually cover both The Fountains (International Drive near Vineland, well south of most I-drive places) and Orlando Sunshine (a few blocks off of International and across I-4 from Universal -- the classic "I-Drive area").

    Mine has/will have a lot of pics of the units, but not so many of the resorts. And I've got a few St. Augustine pics, including the beach there.


    Here are the older threads with trip report links:

    Please, feel free to add any other off-site trip reports to this list -- they can be tough to find, and much as I like "all Disney, all the time" trip reports, I love the "other side of Orlando" ones, too.

    EDIT:

    With older reports, people reconfigure things or something, so pics often disappear. :sad: So here's a list of those trip reports that either never had pics or still have all or many of their pics as of October 2013:

    I don't know how I missed this when you posted. :sad2: Haven't finished it, but what a fun trip report! :thumbsup2 I really like it when a place has a basketball hoop, but I've never chosen a place for the basketball hoop! :teeth: Although I gotta, say, that technique seems to have served you well! ;)

    I was looking through my computer files for something else entirely and ran across this list, which is mostly trip reports already listed on one of the threads I've already linked to, but I thought adding some of the off-site names might make them more likely to come up if someone's searching for a particular resort. :)

    lol, its amazing what a Mom will do for her kid :rotfl2: .

    I have also started trip report #2 (see the link in my signature.....we went again in August). No Disney on this trip either. By the time I'm done, there will be Aquatica, Discovery Cove, Kissimmee Go Karts, Eli's Orange World, Titanic Experience, Westgate Lakes Resort & Spa, lots of shopping reviews (two outlet malls and the Florida Mall) and multiple dining locations.

    Thanks, I finished your first one and was happy to have the opportunity to be "there" while you're writing one. :) Although it looks like I'm joining at the tail end of things.
