A Long Absence

So after a long spell of not updating, I have finally found the time to come back and spin things back up.  While the actual theme park portion of #6parks1day was a success, getting home turned out to be problematic due to weather.  I will work on providing a belated recap of that prior to attempting it again in September.  I also made very fun and successful trips to March and May and will be heading back to Orlando this weekend to visit Diagon Alley.   I am incredibly excited and can’t wait to get down there as waiting a month since opening has been no fun but I hope it has allowed them to work out some of the kinks.   I hope to be able to make several posts while I am down there about all of the new attractions, food and drink, and merchandise.  If anybody has already been, I would love to hear about your experience.  Look for updates starting on Sunday.  Have a great rest of the week!

A Belated Trip Recap

So thanks to life getting in the way, I was never able to finish a more detailed recap of the trip.  After all the Halloween fun was over, we spent Saturday at Epcot enjoying the many offerings that were available at the Epcot Food and Wine Festival.  Some of highlights included the tacos at Mexico, more Cherry Wheat, and the lamb at Australia.  I also continued to wear my rainbow afro visor that I picked up the night before, which continued to get several double takes and compliments.  The following day brought Islands of Adventure along with the sadness of having to make the trip home.  IOA was solid, as always, and attendance was surprisingly low.  We only waited 15 minutes for Forbidden Journey and that was the longest that we waited for anything.  We also picked up some candy from HoneyDukes for the kids and slowly made our way out of the park for a bit more shopping offsite and then the ride to the airport.

It was just an awesome trip.  We had all the fun of the Halloween event, plus the food and wine festival, combined with relatively small crowds and beautiful weather.  Fall is just an awesome time to visit Orlando and the parks.  Julie and I plan on continuing to make this an annual event for as long as we can and maybe one of these days we will get some friends to go with us on the trip.

As far as what is next for the blog,  I plan to start sharing theme park news from various sources and talk about upcoming trips.  We are considering a trip Thanksgiving weekend to attend the Christmas party at Magic Kingdom and I am working on planning my next solo adventure.  Maybe first I will detail my previous solo trips.  Thanks for reading!
