Hi peeps!!

Kat we stayed at the Royal Pacific....the hotel was beautiful the room was clean and comfortable and beds comfy. The grounds where so pretty. There were times I forgot I was just in Florida....felt like I was in Hawaii or something. Was a nice 10 minute walk to the parks on a private path. Never rented a car and did not need one as the parks and all resturants in City Walk are within walking distance. We took a cab once to go to the water park which was a 5 minute cab ride. We never went over to the Disney area. Since it is still summer the lines at the Disney parks are crazy plus their express pass is not that great..It's like the express pass at my Six Flags where you swipe your card and it tells you when you can come back to ride. Universal has an express line and you go on that line and ride right away. However next trip I want to do some of the disney parks.

Universal's Islands of Adventure is much better Universal Studios. Islands has three excellent water rides. Loved Harry Potter Forbidden Journey ride. Went on it over 10 times.

The only thing the hotel express pass does not include HP Forbidden Journey ride however Harry Potter land opens one hour early for onsite hotel guests only so that was the time we rode. Harry Potter land consist of Forbidden Journey, Dragon ride (upside down coaster) and a smaller coaster along with stores and food for purchase. I wanted to try a Buttered Beer but the line was so long. They did an amazing job with HP area. Walking around there you really feel that you are in Hogsmeade.

I can't wait to go back...

My head is still spinning....we must of rode the Hulk coaster at least 20 times...:eek:

I think we may have to join you on the Freedom cruise and stay an extra week in Orlando.

p.s. Love the new pic....WTF is that thing?? an oversized cucumber??

Have a great day everyone!! Stay safe....

Good Morning Gang,

Henry take care of your self. CQ sounds like you might need to duck too. Gland you had a good time in FL.

I think I'm going to have to break down and more the grass today. With the drought we have had most of the summer I don't think I've mowed since June.

Well got to do some school work.

Good Morning Gang,

Hope the Northeasterners pick up the pieces today.

DS was working last night in Brooklyn as the rain was coming down. Hopefully he went home before the winds got too bad.
DD was in NH for a long weekend. They returned to Boston yesterday rather than try to travel today.

Hi Gang

In spike of all the the tragedy that Irene is causing, I do have some good news.
After some negotiating, the seller has agreed to our offer and after inspection it looks like we have finally purchased a house in Florida.

Hi kids!! Hope all is well with everyone and those in the path of Irene....My street was flooded...the water was starting to creep onto the driveway but then it stopped raining. I thought for sure the water was coming up the driveway and into the house but it did not. However my neighbors around the corner had to leave and go to a shelter their home had water. Their sofa and refridge were swimming. Alot of damage to their homes.
Have power too. Thought we would not have power since on sunny days we loose power. Go figure...

TM Congrats on the home purchase!!! Will you be spending the whole winter there from now on... to get out of the snow and cold?

Most of Brooklyn was fine ,the only areas that had to be evacuated were beach areas .

TM - congrats on the home purchase - here's hoping the inspection goes well.

Henry - hope all is well out at your end of LI. The DS said they got more rain in Brooklyn two weeks ago than they did overnight - not sure if that was true, but he was playing kickball today.

Thanks!

We will head south on Oct. 30th. But we will come up for Christmas, and then go back until march.
At that time we will spend about a month in Ct.

I'm glad the CQ and Henry are OK.

I hope that this is the last storm for this season.

G'morning Gang,

Odd that Henry should mention snow. I actually dreamed about big snow drifts while seeing green grass at the same time.

Have a great Mojito Monday all.

hello all!

Its a beautiful, yet slightly cool, day here in Germany.

I have a day off tomorrow, hopefully I will get my car fixed and keep it that way tomorrow

My prayers go out to all the people affected by Irene. Nashville had a similar issue last year....... its a long recovery but you can do it if you work together

Never rented a car and did not need one as the parks and all resturants in City Walk are within walking distance. We took a cab once to go to the water park which was a 5 minute cab ride. We never went over to the Disney area. Since it is still summer the lines at the Disney parks are crazy plus their express pass is not that great..It's like the express pass at my Six Flags where you swipe your card and it tells you when you can come back to ride. Universal has an express line and you go on that line and ride right away. However next trip I want to do some of the disney parks.

Universal's Islands of Adventure is much better Universal Studios. Islands has three excellent water rides. Loved Harry Potter Forbidden Journey ride. Went on it over 10 times.

The only thing the hotel express pass does not include HP Forbidden Journey ride however Harry Potter land opens one hour early for onsite hotel guests only so that was the time we rode. Harry Potter land consist of Forbidden Journey, Dragon ride (upside down coaster) and a smaller coaster along with stores and food for purchase. I wanted to try a Buttered Beer but the line was so long. They did an amazing job with HP area. Walking around there you really feel that you are in Hogsmeade.

I can't wait to go back...

My head is still spinning....we must of rode the Hulk coaster at least 20 times...:eek:

I think we may have to join you on the Freedom cruise and stay an extra week in Orlando.

p.s. Love the new pic....WTF is that thing?? an oversized cucumber??

Have a great day everyone!! Stay safe....
In my new avatar picture that is a huge squash between some lady's knees.

No problem if your family wants to join us on the Freedom of the Seas. We would have a blast. I don't sleep much on cruise ships so I'm normally out causing trouble at 1AM. Thanks for the tips on Universal we are still in the planning stages. Most of this trip will be at DisneyWorld However, both my hubby and I want to see the Harry Potter stuff. We were looking at DisneyWorld Hotels because of the extra hours thingy. I guess Univerisal does the same thing. I wonder if I should switch hotels for Univerisal? It would be a pain to do but might be worth it.
