or…“Adventures in Orlando”
We left for Orlando on Friday night. The flight was less than two hours. We rented a car from National, so the car was right at the airport. Since we arrived at 11:00 pm, we were able to get to the Nick Hotel quickly. (Special thanks to our GPS unit!!)
We were pleased with the room. It had a small living room with a couch, flat screen TV, frig, microwave and table. The bathroom had one sink. The first bedroom had a queen bed, night stand, desk, room safe, chest of drawers and closet. The second room had two single beds, night stand, chest of drawers and a closet. We loved the privacy of our own bedroom!
Since we arrived on Friday night, the parking lot was packed. The Hotel was full. It was hard to find a parking space. The next morning, we went straight to guess services and signed up for a show. Then we went to the buffet. There are two buffets. One costs more and is with characters. The other does not have characters, but kids are free. So, it was only $20 for DH, DS and myself. The buffet was ok. DS loved it though.
Then we went to the pool. There are two sets of buildings. One has a large pool with huge water slides. The other has a smaller pool with smaller water slides. The main building with the restaurants and mall area separates the two. We swam in both areas. Since it was crowded, chairs were hard to come by. We were able to find some every time though. DS got to participate in a poolside Nick game. He had fun. The show we saw was very entertaining too.
We went to Medieval Times that night. That was the time our GPS just stopped working. We panicked. We are so dependent on that thing! I did have a Mapquest backup, but it was too confusing. We were very lucky and stumbled upon the place. We enjoyed the show alot. It is DS’s favorite thing to do. However, there were some people behind us that obviously had a bit too many beers. One man kept yelling, “Hll yeah" throughout the show. Just when I thought that was the only thing he could say, he yelled, "What the hll.” It was very annoying, but we enjoyed the show anyway.
