Had a great trip with family of 5, kids are 10, 6 and 4 first trip with kids to Universal/ Disney We drove from southern Kentucky about 11 hours, spent first night a red roof inn, next day went straight to Downtown Disney a little shopping, lunch at T-rex, food was good. Spent that night at AOA, Cars suite at to decide if we would like for future trips, great resort especially for a larger family, My oldest daughter and I went to the Mickey's not so scary party, had a blast did not do any candy lines, they were all long we were there for the rides! Fireworks and parade were great,my other 2 kids do not like fireworks so they stayed and explored all the wings of the resort and swam, also had a great time. Next morning jumped on bus to Epcot to take monorail to Ohana's for character breakfast, This is my wife's favorite meal in Orlando, loves the juice, I enjoy the food also and kids loved the conga line and characters. After breakfast went to Royal Pacific Resort and checked in, had our FOTL passes made at kiosk and went up to the room and unpacked, it was around 2 so the kids went to the pool while I went to purchase their 4 day tickets, I have an annual pass from a trip last June with my wife and had renewed it for $170.00 to get the discounts on other park tickets, food and souvenirs, it saved me $100 on tickets for the rest of the family alone. Went to Jimmy Buffets for dinner great fun and good food as always, it is my favorite at city walk, off to swim a little more then sleep had to get up early after all for Harry Potter. More to come .
