Greetings Disboards!

Long time Disboards member here, who hasn't been very active on these forums for some time. Since I joined Disboards in 2006, DS4 and DD1 have morphed into DS17 and DD14, while DW has remained ageless. And DD14 had become a Harry Potter super fan.

I very fondly remember how wonderful the information exchange was on these boards for sharp travelers. Since I faded away from this group, I had remained very interested in all forms of tricks to extending travel dollars, including but not limited to credit card perks, airline rewards, hotel rewards, internet specials, and even casino member promotions. I share a lot of what I was able to pull off in this trip report, and having gotten such good reviews so far, I thought it was worth also sharing with Disboards.

The first half of this trip is to the Atlantis on Paradise Island (which was on a casino promotion.) If you have no interest in that part, you can scroll to Day 5 and that is where the Universal Orlando portion of the trip report begins.

And this report has no spoilers on any of the very cool features of the Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure. But I will tell this group that we dedicated our final day (Day 8) to getting into the attraction, we succeeded. and got some reports on the friendly wait and the state of this brand new attraction.

For some reason the other forum requires a log in to view the pictures in full size. I will post a handful of those pics here so you don't have to mess with that site:

Hi that was a great report. I had thought about going to Atlantis many times but the cost kind of deterred me. We love theme park vacations so tend to stay with that.
We spend most of our vacations at Unviersal. We did not go this summer so no new ride for us. I will be there next year to try it.

I am all in for saving money.
