Annual Passholders Rock

by Meghann on December 22, 2010

One of the reasons why I love having an annual pass to Universal is the ability to pop in to visit the parks when ever I wish. Like when friends come to visit and the only free time they have to see me is at the park. Having a pass then works out perfectly. ๐Ÿ™‚

A few weeks ago Erica messaged me letting me know she was visiting Orlando over the holidays and wondering if I had a free minute to meet in person. I’ve been reading Erica’s blog (Itzys Kitchen) for as long as I’ve been writing my own. Of course I wanted to meet in person! ๐Ÿ™‚

I met Erica and her family for dinner at Margaritaville. They picked my brain about what it’s like being an Orlando local and I ate a bowl of Gumbo.


Erica was just as sweet and kind in person as she seems on her blog. She has a WONDERFUL family and I was so happy to have the chance to meet them all!


After dinner we headed to the Islands of Adventures and I snuck some gorgeous photos of all the pretty lights.

We tried to go into Harry Potter, but there was too long of a weight. I can’t believe how crazy it is to get in there still. Now i see why my brother wanted all of us there so early on Monday. He’s a smart man, my brother.

I just got home a few minutes ago and nibbled on some peppermint bark and a marathon cookie.


Now it’s time for bed.

Good night!

(3 days til Christmas!)

What a BEAUTIFUL morning! Bright shining sun, high of 72, and the prospect of spending the day with family. God, I love living in Florida! ๐Ÿ™‚ I slept in this morning then did a 3 mile run around the neighborhood. Gotta love a run that actually occurs in the daylight. ๐Ÿ™‚ After the run I more ยป
