Melissa, hopefully when we go to Universal we will be staying on site. After our summer trip (when Sam and her bff came along) we drove from AKL for the 3 days... it was blazing, scorching hot, and humid (that goes without saying ) in mid-August... those express passes would of been soooo nice!

I am finally here, bringing up the rear as usual

I am half afraid to read as it may make me change plans and head to US since I am still dying to stay at PB.

Jeanette I think your plans sound great!

Hi Sheila It's not easy to justify staying at WDW and paying double for tickets when we are staying club level at Universal..AND Bree's favorite rides ever are Spiderman, Simpsons and Hippogriff. I almost got DH to say yes to 1900PF Dinner...we can see Cinderella and wishes....maybe I'll make an ADR

Portifino pic you'd like to see

DS4 saw me looking at CRT and said he wants to go to the castle because he can be a Prince.. Well what is a Queen to do....book CRT for her birthday of course...(DH is hesitant...I have 177 days to get him onboard)Bree is too much isn't she???

Okay so this IS a US PTR...a pic of the Castle for Sheila...

Pas, the Express! You spoil me... if I wasn't in the middle of reading A Song of Ice and Fire, I'd go back and re-read my favorite series ever.

I wanna go so bad.

Ooooh, shall we run at the wall together with our luggage carts? (Every time I'm in the U.K. I always look around when we ride the train into London; I'll see that platform one of these days. )

Your family sounds like my family. They have decided that they would rather go to Universal. We stayed at PBH for the first time last summer. We loved it. We are doing Universal/SeaWorld in June. We are staying in a condo this time with other family but I am thinking about booking 2 rooms for one night at RPR so we can get 2 days of express pass.

Love the pic of your kiddos in front of the Hogwart's Express. We will overlap--we are there Aug 10-24. Looking forward to seeing what you have in mind! We are probably going to do the 'Ohana breakfast for our Disney fix--I wanted to go back to the GF for the "in laws" but Stitch cannot be denied.

Oh, if I'm ever in London and ride the tube you can bet I'll be looking for that platform! Miss, the books on tape are fabulous!

You are SO right, Stitch is not to be denied! And why not? He's great! (the breakfast rocks too ).
