Man what a great time! Different as we stayed offsite, but none the less great time! This was a bonus trip. Original plan was to do two day at Universal/IOA and a day at WDW MK, then two days pool side. But on of the twin boys just wasn't tall enough to ride everything so, back up was two days at MK and one at DHS. Not a bad back up plan if I do say so myself! :) We plan on hitting Universal/IOA next year maybe in spring. I will provide a short summary at the end and top 10 (or fewer) things I learned. Let's start with the iPhone pics first.

My word your kids are cute! (obviously they take after their mother...:fez:) I can see what fun the family had in the pics.

Glad staying offsite worked for the family as well - sounds like a good decision this time. :)

It's the best thing that happened to the kids! :) Staying offsite was great. I am going to get into the details of it in my summary when all the pics are up.

The Churros Cart in Frontierland across from the Shooting Gallery. In fact it's the only place in the MK selling any type of soft pretzels now according to a CM. And we didn't see them anywhere else.

Ok, right inside the turnstile, under the carpet is this Key embedded in the floor. It is supposed to be the key that opens the muppet theater because it's always open. CM told us this.

More pics later.

Good. I haven't stayed offsite in SO long that I would love a perspective of how that worked. Sorry the trip is over so soon, but I'm sure you'll be back SOON!

Thanks for posting the pics. I love pics!

Love the pics! Thanks for sharing! I can't wait to hear about your off-site stay. We, too are a family of five, and I keep thinking we should try off-site...more space...nicer beds...and then I go right back to cramming us all into a on-site room....details...details...I need details! :)
