Universal Studios

Saturday, February 19, 2011

Back in September, Stu and I took my grandson (Joshua) and his granddaughter (Olivia) to Disney World in Orlando. Stu and his late wife had started a tradition of taking the grandkids to Disney for their fifth birthday. This was a continuation of that tradition.

Since Joshua's sisters were well past age five (now being 8 & 9) and had been to Disney more than a few times, we decided to take them to Universal Studios where they had never been. Nor have we....LOL!

The family has arrived at Nickelodeon Resorts where they are spending the vacation week (the kids are on winter break from school in Atlanta area). We'll have dinner tomorrow night with everyone and the girls will spend the night at our hotel. We'll take the hotel shuttle to Universal on Monday and Tuesday, getting together for dinner on Tuesday night. A final breakfast with the family on Wednesday and we'll head back home.

The kids are really excited about Harry Potter World...they both love roller coasters so Stu will get in plenty of riding. Me....I'll be sitting out the more intense rides as well as ALL roller coasters. LOL!

Sadie will once again be at Preppy Pets. We'll be out all day so we won't get a chance to peek at her in the PetCam, but we know she'll be having a ball!

I will take the computer with me but don't know if I will take time to blog until we are back home. Long days with the shuttle leaving at 7:45 am and not returning until after 6pm. LOL!

Oh, the best new news...we are taking the motorcycles! My daughter and family have their car and will do all the hotel shuttling!

Till next time - keep on rollin',
Donna and Stu


  1. We love Universal and go there at least once a month while home in Florida... It is so fun and I hope you all enjoy it as much as we do... Have fun & travel safe

  2. It's been about 6 years since we were there, but we sure had a great time..We were with our middle daughter, hubby and their 3 kids...Whew!!...Now THAT was intense...enjoy!!

  3. Hope you have a great time with the grand kids. They can really wear you out, but oh, the memories made on these trips.

  4. What fun....I can't wait to someday take my little grandson!

  5. I took both my children to Disney when they were six - Little One spent her 6th birthday being spoiled at the Magic Kingdom! We try to go every 3 years, at least. Never been to Universal though. Looking forward to your blog about your adventures. Hope you have a fantastic time!

    Stay safe...
