The resort we stayed at had a tropical island feel and even had a small sandy man made beach. Part of the pool was designed to look like a beach and even had sand in one area. We got up early every day and headed over to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure and then came back tor a relaxing afternoon swim. We would sit and float on pool noodles and enjoy some much needed down time together. In the evenings we would either head back over to the parks or have dinner at CityWalk. A few of the restaurants were closed for private parties so we wound up eating at Bubba Gumps three times. The food was great there and they had the best service of any of the restaurants that we ate at. We were able to find some healthier choices on their menu too which can be hard while traveling.
Thursday evening we went to Universals Halloween Horror Nights (HHN). It was so scary and so fantastic and the best part of the vacation. We stayed in the park and had dinner at Finegans Pub while HHN was set up. They kept us in a special area and we were able to go in to HHN thirty minutes before it was opened to the public. The first house we went in was themed after An American Werewolf in London and it was FANTASTIC! There were eight houses total, which doesn't seem like a lot, but when you are being scared
We also got to see a tribute to one of my all time favorite movies... The Rocky Horror Picture Show! Woot! Andy and I got up and did the Time Warp and it was just so much fun. The actors were fabulous and very authentic.
The scariest thing of all was that Andy
We wound up having so much fun that I didn't even have time to knit. I did do a little bit while we were waiting to board the plane and go home and when I wasn't passed out from shear exhaustion on the flight I managed a few rows on a second Camberwell.
While there were no yarn shops to be found on site, we did find a window display with yarn on one of the side streets at Universal. Yarn. It's everywhere!
Miss Babs Yowza and shawlette in Miss Babs Yummy. I'll have pictures to post next time. I always wonder what our neighbors think when they see me hauling the mannequins around outside.
