Florida 2011

Rory and I were looking for somewhere to go for our anniversary when we found a deal for Orlando! It was so fun! We went to Disneyworld, Universal Studios, and the Kennedy Space Center. It was a fun filled vacation for sure! The crowds were annoying at times but we still had a great time!

Our trip didn't really start off great though...our flight was canceled from SLC! So, we were re-routed on a different airline, which turned out to be a blessing. We were able to catch an earlier connecting flight from Houston to Orlando AND first class for FREE! Oh yeah! It was awesome. Hot towels, lunch, and free movie--"yes please"!

We spent the first few days in DisneyWorld. One day we even were able to go to Blizzard Beach (1 of 2 Disney's water park). The food in Epcot was all worth it! Dinners in France and Italy, Lunch in Britain. We never got to China (one of our favs)...but we did end up discovering a great place in Hollywood Studio's called the "Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater". It is a huge drive-through movie set up and you sit in little cars as your tables! Such a cool atmosphere! And the shakes were so yummy!

Universal Studios was fun as well! The new "Wizarding World of Harry Potter" was the big attraction where the Butterbeer was delicious!

The Kennedy Space Center was interesting. I had never been before so we thought that was a good idea for one of the days. My favorite was probably the IMAX movie about Hubble space telescope. The final shuttle launch is this week. If only it was just a week earlier! Dang... Later that night we had some GREAT seafood in Cocoa Beach. So Good!

Now some pictures..... and yes, I realize that they are backwards...Sorry.
