Greetings from Sunny(?) Central Florida!

Okay, so the sunny part isn’t quite right today. It’s actually overcast and in the 40s. Not your typical Florida weather.

Anyway, I wanted to drop in quickly as I’m on my way to Universal Orlando Resort today to do some “research” (yeah, that’s it…) and wanted to see if there were any reader requests in terms of photos, food, info, etc.

I’m not guaranteeing I’ll honor all of these. For instance, if you request a comprehensive photo essay of the trash cans of Universal Studios Florida, I probably won’t…actually, that sounds pretty awesome. Bad example. If you request 50 photos of the toilets of Universal, I won’t do that. Nor will I eat at a restaurant that looks disgusting or ride the Hulk coaster 23 times in a row. You get the idea.

If you do have any requests, though, let me know in the comments below. I’ll be monitoring them as I tour Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure.

Okay, gotta run. I’m late…do I have no concept of time?! #OUTATIME 😉


P.S. Regular posts will resume next Wednesday…maybe Tuesday if I’m feeling ambitious. I’ll also respond to your comments on the last few posts at that time.

    So glad I ran into you and got to meet you at Cabana Bay! I hope I didn’t give off a creeper vibe, I was just so surprised to see you at that hotel! Also, as I realized later, I looked a hot mess as we had been in Universal/IOA all day since early admission, went to Cowfish (DELICIOUS, you should check it out if you haven’t already) for dinner, and had just returned from Pat O’Brien’s in CityWalk. So, I probably did look like a crazy person. 🙂

    Just wanted to tell you again what a big fan I am of your blogs. You provide super useful information, humor, and reality (you don’t sugarcoat, which I love) in all of your posts and I love reading them. I feel I can relate to your perspective because my husband and I are also adults who currently do not have children, love WDW, and travel there at least 3 times a year. (Also, I’m a Figment, Spaceship Earth, and old school EPCOT lover myself.) We are planning a vacation to Disneyland in June and your Disneyland trip planning guide will be invaluable as my husband has never been, and I was about 10 the last time I was there. And we would LOVE to eventually make use of your plan to hit Aulani and Tokyo Disneyland/DisneySea in one trip!! You’ve definitely convinced us that we need to travel there at some point.

    I really appreciate all the work that you do that goes into your blogs, I know its got to be a lot to put it all together. Just wanted to let you know that you definitely have readers that appreciate what you do! Great to meet you!

    Also, congrats on the marathon, that’s amazing!

      It was nice running into you, too; no creeper vibe at all!

      I have a lot more to do at Universal Orlando, so those recommendations are helpful. I’m excited to start experiencing all that the place has to offer!

    I would like a review on the different types of butter beer (cold, frozen, hot). We just missed you at Universal. Enjoy your day 🙂

    I’d love to see some nice Port of Entry shots at IoA. I love the theming there and don’t often see great photos of that area. Also the music there is awesome!

    I would love to see a good picture of the Gringotts dragon as it shoots fire. We were there in December and saw it but never had the camera ready. Also the crowds made it hard to stand still.
