I struggled on the title of this thread- trying to be creative and witty- but in the end I went with just the facts. Welcome to my first pre-trip report. I have been wanting to start this but decided to wait until there were 99 days to go (which is today). Obviously, I have been counting down (not like Im excited or anything!) Let me introduce myself- Im Cindy born and raised in Connecticut. I love to travel, and am fortunate to have visited lots of places all over the world. My companion on this vacation will be Jeff. Also born and raised in Connecticut. He is one of my oldest and closest friends. He’s the thrill ride junky – and if Im heading to Orlando, usually it’s with him. The last time I was at USO was back in 2010. Back then Harry Potter was in the process of being built. So, I have not seen any of the Harry Potter areas, or any of the new hotels. We will be there for almost 5 full days – I hope to see most of the new stuff. And if not it’s a reason to go back (more on this plan later) I have been planning this vacation since January. Im a super planner by nature so going to USO where there is not a lot of planning has been an interesting experience. I have lots of questions on what to see and do, and I figure a PTR is the best place to post them. I hope some smarties will stop by and help me with some answers. I didn’t want to start a million threads with my mundane questions. Now – on with the plans!
