... I have been reading so many great trip reports and PTR that I had to start mine. We will be going back to Universal the end of June till the beginning of July. This is my first time going back under one year. Before we left last August we upgraded to a Power Pass to fit in one more trip. The money for the upgrade saved us so much in having to purchase new tickets. We had to move the trip to June from July/August due to the blackout dates for VB. We love it there and really wanted to go back. I haven't been to Florida in June in about 6 years we like July/August but heyI am just happy we can get a trip in I did my first real big trip report when we got back this summer and really enjoyed doing it. There is lots of inspiration on these boards too. This trip will be the same crew DH, DD, DD's BF and myself. We are doing things a little different this time. We are for the first time and it is about 19 hours. The longest I have driven was out to Ohio which is about 10 hours. I am excited and a little nervous about the time in the car. DD gets motion sickness with every mode of transportation so we are going to take our time. After her awful flight with ear pain in August she really wanted a break from flying. We decided to take two days to get to Orlando. We are going to stop in Virginia for a day and take our time. Once we get to Orlando we are going to look at colleges one day and then some neighborhoods in some of the outskirts. We decided to stay off-site in Staybridge Suites for two nights before heading to PBH for 4 nights and 5 days. It will be easier with all the stuff we are doing. After Universal we are going to visit family on the west coast for a week then heading home. I have had to make minor changes to this trip multiple times already but I swear I am done . We had so much snow here in the northeast and snow days that the schools are in for another week in June. I thought I cushioned enough time but alas I didn't. Once we changed the dates and was able to do it with RPR I was excited. That sense of relaxation would not last . DD's BF started snoring unbelievably loud the last month or two . They are testing him for sleep apnea but not sure when. I am a very light sleeper and I am one of those who needs a good night to feel good. I was really nervous about sharing a room now. I decided to change all the hotel rooms to either suites or two rooms. This was a big undertaking. It is a good thing DH can sleep through anything and will stay with DD's BF in another room if necessary. I was able to keep all my hotels except RPR . There was no SMSM or AP rate for what we needed. PBH had AP rates for both rooms so we took it. We got one Queen CL and one Queen Bay view. If DD's BF stops snoring then I will cancel the regular room. I was a little disappointed at first. I had everything planned at RPR. I was really looking forward to staying there. However, now I am very excited to stay CL at PBH. I know we will have a great time. We have a few restaurants we like to do when we go : Toothsome, Bubba Gump, and Leaky Cauldron. This year we are going to try a new one at City Walk just trying to decide. I have been reading trip reports for reviews. Other than that we just go with the flow and relax. Now I wait and read lots of threads to keep me happy and busy till we leave. Thanks for following along, it is so nice to share with other posters who feel the same way.
