Just back.. thoughts on trip

we just returned and I thought I would share some thoughts on our trip with you.

We flew into MCO on Friday night, we decided to stay at an airport hotel the first night so we stayed at the Comfort Suites Airport. Nice hotel good small pool with hot tub. Would definitely stay there again. The next morning at 715am we were picked up by Tony Hinds and taken right over to Royal Pacific, where we promptly checked our bags, checked into hotel, received out express passes and were in US in under 40 min!!! We decided to splurge this trip and stayed on club level. It was only a $65 difference a night. Now there were 5 of us total, two 18 year olds, my hubby myself and my son who is 12. Just between cont. breakfast and a few beers during happy hour we felt we more than made up the price difference. Our room was tight because of the roll away, but for two nights it was fine. Not sure I would have wanted to stay in it much longer. We loved all the Harry Potter things and waits were not bad if you timed things right, early am/late pm. Express passes were great for everything else. I will say though that we could have easily done only one night two days and seen everything we wanted to plus spend some time at the pool. I sent Tony a msg on Sunday night requesting a 800am pick up to take us over to GF villas. His partner was there right on time.
We enjoyed us/ioa but dont feel we need to go back for awhile.

I don't know how I missed this before. So glad that part of your trip went well.


My last trips have all been five nights and I've loved not feeling rushed to do anything.
Also, love spending the whole afternoon at the pool reading a good book and relaxing (and letting my feet/legs recover from walking).
