USA ’18 – Day 8 – Helen makes a plan

Today we were off to Epcot and had planned to dash over to Test Track first to sneak a quick ride in before heading over to Soarin’ where we had a fast pass. In order to squeeze that in we left home promptly at 08:20 and headed off down the US 192.… Read the rest

USA ’18 – Day 7 – Rivers of Light

After the last few days frenetic activity it was nice to have a late start today. Our fastpasses for the day were all for late afternoon in Animal Kingdom. This didn’t mean, of course, that I could wake later and lie in, no I’m useless at that so I was still up just after seven.… Read the rest

USA ’18 – Day 6 – Universal Appeal

We’d decided to go back to Universal today rather than use the Fast passes we had for Disney. That means that it is Disney 2 – Universal 2 so far in the battle of the parks.

That’s right parking isn’t included in the price! When we first came it was $5 a day and you got a really nice souvenir card to keep.… Read the rest

Here I group together all the posts to allow you to quickly find the post most relevant to what you are interested in.… Read the rest

USA '14 – Day 15 – The long way home

Given that the flight back to the UK is late afternoon this gives us plenty of time for one last hurrah.

Even though we had only been there yesterday it was decided to go back to Hollywood Studios today. I have to admit that this was done on a majority vote basis and like the Olympics I suspect that some bribery took place to get the required result!… Read the rest
