December 12 to December 17, 2010 - Universal Vacation With Jimmy


#1

It’s going to be just the two of us… Jimmy and myself, (I know it sounds strange) our first offical vacation together (alone) - no kids, no parents. We might kill each other, so watch for the obituarties.

Anyway here are our plans…

December 12, 2010

Continental Airlines leaving Newark @ 8:00 am - arriving in MCO @ 10:43 am.

We will hit baggage claim (something I am not used to @ MCO) and find our driver. Then off to the Royal Pacific Hotel - Garden view - we have park to park (park hopper) tickets, added SeaWorld.

we haven’t figured out our itinerary yet, but as soon as I do, I’ll post it.

December 17, 2010

Continenal Airlines leaving MCO @ 6:43 pm.

It’s a short trip, but it is the two of us.

I am looking into two tapings 1) Family Feud and 2) WWE.

No meal plans to book so we will be on our own.

Do you want a trip report? You know I will be taking LOTS of pictures.

You will enjoy the time together. I still remember how amazed our first trip with NO KIDS was. Totally different. We actually relaxed. Enjoy.

How did I miss this? :laugh: Thanks.


#5

I am looking forward to it. Since it is starting to get chilly here in PA, I started packing, don’t laugh… I can’t see packing away my summer tops and then have to dig them out in 2 months, so I grabbed a small suitcase and placed them in there. :eek:

Sounds like a great trip, and YES - I want a full TR!! :slight_smile:

You are going to have a blast! We were bummed on our last trip because we couldn’t go the the Family Feud taping (we had DS6 with us, and you have to be 16).

Famly Feud just wrapped up filming so we won’t be doing that, but I am keeping on eye out on what will be happening and hopefully we will be able to catch a taping of something.


#8

Good call. We have run into many 80+ degree days followed by a 45-50 degree day. Enjoy layering and lockers.


#9

I am planning on packing for two season. Layers are the key here.


#10

You will be at Universal during Grinchmas and the Macy’s Parade. We originally were going Dec 10th-12th but we ended up changing to Thanksgiving weekend. I think the Grinchmas starts the first weekend in December. I am bummed we wont get to be there for it.

You will have a great time! Make sure to try the butterbeer…it is yummy

Butterbeer???


#12

Butterbeer is a drink that the people in Harry Potter drink I think. All I know is that there is always a line for in and it is very good. It tastes like a mix of cream soda, and ice cream (if you get the frosted version…there is a seltzer version that is more like cream soda). You get it the Harry Potter area at Islands of Adventure.


#13

YUMMY Butterbeer!! I think it tastes like butterscotch too…get the frozen kind if you can!The Goode Life: Butterbeer & Pumpkin Juice


#14

DD brought some Butterbeer back from a quick US trip for HP only. It tasted like a butterschoch drink. Not bad, but nothing to make a special trip to US, unlike a Dole Whip in MK.

Now add some rum to a whip and look out. :ohmy:


#15

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is amazing! And the butterbeer is very tasty! As is the pumpkin juice!
