    Trip Report Our 7 Day Trip Report

    We stayed off site in an airbnb condo which was Runaway Beach Club in Kissimmee. Accommodations were excellent. We rented an SUV to get around. First two days at Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios was a blast. We especially loved IOA's Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey ride ...

    WOOT WOOT Trip is planned

    Thanks everyone. Yes, this is our first (and likely only) time. I think we'll tough out the noise at Rainforest Cafe just for the environment aspect. And great tip about Kilimanjaro - animals don't like the heat of the day at high noon. Good to know Splash Mountain sometimes has their sprayers...

    Bought Universal Tickets - hope I did it right

    Oh yes, good thx. I want a lanyard with the pass holder option. I'm starting to get soooo excited. In 6 full days we are doing 4 days of parks which is a lot for us because we are not die hard theme park enthusiasts. I've built in 2 free days to either lounge by our condo pool, go to an outlet...

    Bought Universal Tickets - hope I did it right

    Thanks for the link, Disneyhead! I think it's only fitting we buy Griffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff lanyards ha ha so cute.

    Bought Universal Tickets - hope I did it right

    Thanks again, Bubba. Super appreciated. I love having a bit of cash and a debit/credit card on my person because I don't want to have to walk all the way back to the lockers at the front of the park every time we decide to buy/eat something. Thanks for tip on lanyards at gift shop or Amazon...

    Bought Universal Tickets - hope I did it right

    Thanks for explaining the process, Bubba! Can I buy the lanyard with a card holder right in the park? I'd like to have some cash on my person, or at least a credit card so we can buy treats (butter beer).

    Bought Universal Tickets - hope I did it right

    We're doing Universal for two days so I bought park-to-park for both days so we could ride Hogwart's Express. First day is at IOA with Express tickets because we like rides. Second day is at Universal Studios without Express. I bought the park entrance tickets from Undercover Tourist site and...

    Directions from Orlando International Airport to Kissimmee

    OK thank you so much. So these rental places will offer me this per diem rate option. I think I prefer the convenience of this as I don't want to mess around with change for a toll and I know we're going to need toll roads at least 4 of our 6 days.

    Directions from Orlando International Airport to Kissimmee

    Hi there; Yesterday I google mapped directions from the airport to our condo (off site) in Kissimmee, the Runaway Beach Club (3000 Bonfire Beach Drive). Seems straight forward. Our car rental place is on N. Frontage Road so once we pick it up, we'll take: 528 West, then merge onto the 1-4...

    I like it, Queen. I suspect I'll be organising and booking our days exactly like that. Thanks!

    Magic Kingdom without Fast Pass?

    Thanks for the tips on doing rides in morning. And for the encouragement not to give up. Thanks to all of your support, I may just be able to pull this off. :joyfull::joyfull::joyfull: Yes, in my first post on this thread I mention we're staying off site. So I have the 30 days re: Fast Passes...

    Magic Kingdom without Fast Pass?

    Yes, it's President's Day long weekend, Disney marathon, Mardi Gras, you name it. But we have a teacher in our group so it can't be helped. That's why I think I need to book Fast Passes. Is the MDE app the only way to book Fast Pass?

    Magic Kingdom without Fast Pass?

    Okay thanks, Hurricane.So I added all four as family. One of them made her own account and I invited her to link to my account. But after reading your post I asked her to not accept my invitation to link and asked her to delete her account. It's much easier if I manage all of them and they are...

    Where to buy Universal tickets

    So I downloaded MDE to buy tickets to Disney World and get Fast Passes but I wonder where I buy Universal tickets? At the OTC near the condo we're renting in Kissimmee? Also, over two days, we're doing both Universal parks: Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios. We want to buy an Express...

    Magic Kingdom without Fast Pass?

    So I added all my peeps into my MDE account under my profile. If I buy tickets on MDE for all of us, can I just assign a ticket to each of them and then when they arrive in the mail I scan them in to my account under each of their names? Or do they have to make separate MDE accounts first? One...

    Magic Kingdom without Fast Pass?

    Thanks, I can't tell you how relieved I feel to read your and other posts. Once I downloaded the MDE App and mucked about there for a bit, I see how it is easier to do it that way and I'm sure one of my adult sons will laugh if I tell him I was afraid to use the damn App. God I hate being old.

    Magic Kingdom without Fast Pass?

    Thanks that's interesting. So our tickets are in our cell phones on the MDE App and is it our cell phone that we show to get on all the rides, instead of the magic band? Or do people not have to show anything to get on rides once you're in the park? You're right CheshireCat, I think it's good...

    Magic Kingdom without Fast Pass?

    Super huge thank you. I think I will take the plunge and buy tickets and book Fast Pass on the iPhone App MDE. I just asked everyone to make an account so I can link them to mine. Thanks again for the really helpful post.
