I am thinking of that actually. We had a great time all together last time.

Anyone know what the rack rates are? I'm, sure it's astronomical, but it can't hurt to be in the know.

Sorry - it's gonna need a major refurb before I can recommend it in good concsience.

My thoughts exactly. I think you'd have SOOO much more fun in a 2 bedroom DVC!
The only US hotel I have been to is The Hard Rock. I def have to do some research on RP, I have heard good things and can get the low down from Janet after August too.

Any suggestions of where to get the 2 bedroom?

Will the tree house villas be done by then... that could be awesome.

A 2 bed sounds like a great idea, otherwise the newly refurbed rooms at CSR are gorgeous!

Are you wanting to divide up your trip- stay a few nights at US then a few at WDW?

We are staying at the HRH in September so I will be able to give a review after that. I vote with everyone else on renting DVC points if you can afford it. Otherwise I'd go with POFQ!

LOL it's ok. Yep just like what's on tv, but on a smaller scale. Same story lines and managers and what not. I did it for about 6 years. First as a referee, then a manager then a wrestler. I had to train and work up to the actual wrestling part. It was a wacky time, but I have great stories to tell me kids/grandkids and video tapes to prove it too!

Here's some pics for a good laugh....







Yep it's a dollar bill stapled to my head...it was sort of my thing that I was tougher than the other girls and could take it. crazy i know.


Feel free to ask questions.

My first vote would be OKW, just based on size. LOTS of room in those! Second would be AKV, because I believe they have an extra bathroom.

Hey Kat. I need your advice on something (off topic). if you want to PM me with your answer that is ok, otherwise I will just hijack your thread My niece is going to NYC for graduation the end of May. She is also my babysitter. I usually give money to my nieces and nephews at graduation but was thinking of actually shopping for a gift this time LOL! Is there anything one might need as a tourist in NYC (besides a handgun LOL). I don't know what all they are planning on doing but I am sure it is the stuff all tourists do.

Hi Kat! Good luck with the planning. I'm going in August for my goddaughter's birthday. I've been chipping away at the balance for my reservations. I can't wait to hear about what you will do this time.

So I was doing a little Universal research today....

Then it occurred to me, we will prob have 7 of us...where the heck can we stay??? I was only planning on 2 days at US, but where will we all fit? Would we need 2 rooms? Is that cheaper?

After looking at pictures, Portifino bay looks like a gorgeous hotel! BUT the doubletree is cheaper. Anyone stayed at either? I need some reviews!!'

I will check out to US boards eventually but I wondered if any of you could help.

Then there is also the matter of food at US...where the heck can we eat??
