Sorry we havent written on our blog in a while, its been a very hectic and long few days. We left Key West on Tuesday morning, after getting another hire car and drove back up the long straight road to Miami where we stayed at a basic hotel which was right next to the main Airport. Wednesday morning we dropped off the car and then got a taxi to the local greyhound station which was where we would be getting our bus to Orlando. Bus trip was very long and took around 5 hours with some very interesting people on the bus!! Apparently its the "Cheaper" version to travel as everyone flies.....you dont want to know some of the sights we saw! After being dropped off in god knows where, we had to get a taxi which was 20 minutes back the direction we just came from to our hotel. Ending up getting to our hotel around 8pm Wednesday evening after a very long and tiring day travelling.
Our next job was to buy some tickets for the parks. Already had the multi ticket which we bought at home, so we bought the Magical Kingdom (Disney Castle) and Universal Studios. Thursday morning was an early start with a 7am shuttle bus journey to the magic kingdom. A very good day but more for the kids we think, although we did enjoy seeing Mini and Mickeys house :)!! Stayed til late because of the electric parade and then the fireworks.
Today we went to Universal Studios which was amazing!! It has two parks and we will be going to the second one tomorrow which is the main park as the Harry Potter rides have just opened there. The one today was Jaws, Simpsons, Shrek, Twister, Mummy and ALOT more. We got there on opening so managed to go on all the main rides before it got busy. A great day, the only downfall is the heat. It is so so so hot to walk around that after a minute your sweating and need to sit down again for a drink. But a great day and better than disney as this was more our style and our age.
Sea World, A Water Park and Busch Gardens still to come this week so its a very busy non stop week which is good after the chill we have had in Key West.
We will write again soon, hope everyone is ok and not missing us too much.
Lots of Love
