Oh I have a question for you. My cruise next year is out of Orlando Fl. Do you know of any good hotels near Disney World. How far is Disney from Universal? I'm wondering if I should rent a car or not. Thanks for your help.

Good Morning Gang,

Kat - there are a boatload of hotels in Orlando and Kissimee. Universal Studios are at the north end of International Drive will Disney is much further south. If you want to visit both you probably want a car. Remember Port Canaveral is about 50 miles east of O'do.

Good morning gang

Happy wine down wednesday.

I crashed early last night so now I am up early.

We are keeping an eye on the weather forecasts and it looks like Irene is going to cause some damage somewhere.

Let's hope that it's not too bad.

I would probably to skip Universal and just do Disney but the spouse wants Universal. Sounds like we need to rent a car.

Irene is expected to hit my area beginning Saturday night .Since we are surrounded by water on 3 sides it does not look good.

Good Morning Gang,

Everybody have a great day. Stay dry up there Henry.

Good morning gang

Happy tequila thursday.

We are still in the sunshine here in Palm Coast, FL The only hurricane influence seen here so far is that the waves are huge. We had dinner across from Flagler beach yesterday and you could really see the surf pound.

Now I am more concerned that we will find some damage in our place in Connecticut when we return on tuesday.

Have a nice day folks.

Stay safe and out of Irene's path. She is a crazy girl. I hope everyone's having a fun tequila Thursday. I will be one of the backup people for my zumba teacher tomorrow. She is doing a demo and invited people from the class to stand behind her. I figured I'm go to show the how the old out of shape people Zumba.

Hi gang

We just returned from Flagler Beach and there are many people out there watching the waves. There were crews from CBS and NBC out there as well.
The waves are huge and the wind is strong and steady but it's dangerous as of now.
we also had a productive day in our house searching and are close to making an offer.

Good Morning Gang,

Happy Open Bar/Bra Friday. Hurricanes are not one of the things I miss about living in FL.

DW & I have been talking about our next vacation - after October cruise - so many places to go! Maybe we will try falling down mountains - I mean skiing.

Henry I'm sure your friend has his reasons, but I think I would skip that last move

My life so far IN - CA - IN - FL - IN - need one more move back to the warmth of the south, or the Caribbean

Hi Kids...

Happy Open Bar/bra Friday!!!

Had a super wonderful week at Universal. We stayed at one of the onsite hotels and it was great. The service around the hotel was cruise like. No employee ever passed you by without saying "aloha" My favorite bartender was from Haiti and he made my nightly drinks just perfect. Of course having the room key serve as a express pass to the rides was awesome. No lines!!! while everyone else had waits of 20 to 75 minutes!! :eek: Saw the Blue man group but I must be the only one that did not like it....I don't find them funny at all. :???::???: Favorite places to eat...Hard Rock Cafe, Margaritaville and Orchard Sushi bar.

Made some new friends.....Wolverine, Popeye and Olive, Lucy and Ricky, Dora the Explorer, Dr Suess, Dr. Doom and my favorite Spiderman (must be the red and blue spandex suit )

Ready to do it all over again!! I just may have to skip cruising again in 2012. :eek: Or better yet take a week cruise out of port canaveral and tack on a week at Universal.


TM how is your trip going?? Put a deposit on any home?? How is Mrs. TM loving the heat??? OMG it was so hot! Had to run into a store or cafe every 10 minutes to get some A/C.

And of course all eyes and hears are on Irene and to all of us in the East coast. Stay safe everyone hope Sunday comes and goes with no major issues. And if you are looking to buy water or flashlights....forget about it!

And a big shout out and thank you to Thomas for starting this wonderful thread. 8)

CQ in 2012 we are cruising Freedom of the Seas out of Port Canaveral. My hubby wants to go to Universal studios for the Harry Potter stuff. Did you go over there? If so how was it? What Hotel did you stay at? Any tips you have would be great.

I hope everyone is having a fun Open Bra/Bar Friday. I was part of a Zumba Demo. I was surprised the demo was outside in the 90 degree heat. Luckily it was only 4 songs and one was a slow toning song so I made it through. I got a very nice thank you e-mail from the teacher. Plus I got a free mini class so it worked out after all.
