Hope you don't mind a new face around here. Stayed onsite this past June and fell in love with Universal. We are going back this June and cannot wait. I thought It would be fun to hang out with everybody who helped so much on our last trip.

everyone is welcome here to visit and talk.
a new face is always encouraged.


i hope you are able to stay onsite and enjoy the total ambiance that universal has to offer.

maybe you will be able to catch the new ride, Transformers.
no one knows when that ride will be up and running but crossing my fingers you get lucky and your family will be able to enjoy that new ride!

We are staying onsite. Not sure which hotel, waiting for AP rates to be released. We are only planning on 3 nights onsite and then the rest of the trip offsite. We are taking my niece, nephew, and my Mom so we have to get 2 rooms. It gets expensive. We have AP's but bought them the 2 days/1 day free tickets. We are also doing Blue Man Group. We are doing SeaWorld too. Haven't decided where to stay for that portion of the trip.

When are you going and where are you looking to stay??

I'm starting to keep my eyes open for our upcoming May trip
I booked air on SWA 6/9 for 5 nights. Wanted to avoid renting a car this time and use ME to make it a budget trip.

ps mush, that looks like so much fun!

anybody who has Stitch (and kiddos) in their avatar is good people

mac the trip is rather last minute (in DVC speak). I was on the phone with member services to borrow points from next yearto make a reservation @ BWV and it disappeared. Not interested in using points for OKW or SSR. Will keep checking though to see if something opens up but doubtful. I enjoy the values, just not the current pricing.

Us too! 50 degrees today. Rain on the way home though. February most likely will be colder.

Told DH about a get away for both of us later this year, and the guy who never likes to vacation says we can do one this spring too. He must be getting old!
