Good morning! Happy Halloween!
We landed in Orlando yesterday afternoon, had lunch at a wonderful spot, went to Walmart for some supplies for the hotel and found our hotel. Our plan was to book the same hotel we did the first year we came, two years ago. It was a great room with a kitchen, a living room with couch and a chair and table, and a separate bedroom. It was great if one of us was tired and one was not so we did not disturb each other. I thought that was what I had booked again… but alas …. no.
The hotel we are at is fine… but has a SUPER clean smell. An overly clean smell… to the point that it gives me a headache. And it is just a standard room, also fine as we are hardly ever there, but not what we had hoped for.
We drove around looking for our original hotel. We walked the area we did that year to go to the restaurant Fridays, and he other little shops we had walked that year… we still could not find our hotel. Later at our current hotel I started Googling all hotels on that road and looking at pics… I think I finally found it but it has a new name and look. We may go check it out today for future bookings.
Today we will be at Universal Studios. More importantly….
Harry Potter World.
I am so excited! We will be there by 9 am when it opens and I hope to go on the train first. Yes yes… I will totally have my geek on. 🙂 I am so looking forward to this!
Later tonight, we want to go to the movie Nightcrawler. It looks good!
SO that will be our second day in Florida! Remember the kick off to the Harry Potter Reread/Readathon starts tomorrow. Still time to join in! I started reading book one on the plane. Still, it amazes me how much is said in each book that leads to things to come.

Ya gotta admit Jake played a GREAT scary guy! LOL
Happy Halloween in Florida!
I guess a super clean smell is better than not clean but I know what you mean. Have fun!
Enjoy your time in Florida.
Glad you landed safely, VERY sorry to hear about the hotel mistake :(, can’t wait to hear about Harry Potter World, and yes—Sorceror’s Stone is LOADED with all-telling clues for some of the biggest things throughout the whole series! 🙂
Welcome to Florida!! I hope you had a wonderful day at Universal. I live about an hour east along the coast. We are in Orlando all the time, but rarely the theme parks. Enjoy all the lovely weather and your vacation!!
