    • Upcoming trip to Disney/Universal - so confused about how to plan it!!

      Orlando Jan 5, 2017 at 4:41 AM

      Hi All,

      We're going to Orlando in late March/early April for 14 nights. 2 adults and 2 kids (5 and 7). Flights and hotel booked but now the dreaded investigation into Disney tickets, what to do, where to eat, etc!!

      If anyone can help with some sort of broad itinerary and helpful tips/hints/recommendations, that would be amazing! I've picked up a couple of brochures from travel agents and spoke to some people but it all seems a bit overwhelming!

      We want to visit the main Disney parks and Universal (main reason I'm going is for Harry Potter world!) and do some shopping at the outlets. If we can fit it in, a trip to Kennedy Space Center would be great but since it's our first time in Orlando, I suspect that we'll be consumed with Disney/Universal.

      Thanks in advance!

    • Marriage in Ft. Myers Area

      by chula29 Online Now Apr 30, 2007 at 11:18 AM

      Does anyone know of a good location in the Ft. Myers area for a sunset beach wedding? We are low maintenance and don't need the services of a hotel. It will just be me, my fiance, a notary, and two witnesses. Also, are there permits required for this type of intimate gathering if we end up on a public beach? Any ideas are welcomed!

    • guide needed

      by bobatfuntastic Online Now Mar 2, 2005 at 7:57 AM

      I have a client who will be in Ft. Myers on April 12, 2005. She doesn't drive, but wants to take an eco-tour and a kayaking tour in the Punta Gorda area. She needs someone to spend the day driving her to both locations and back. We will pay for your time and driving expenses. (While it is not necessary for the guide to accomopany her on the tours, you would be welcome to do so at your own expense.) Please let me know what you would charge (and whether you would like to take the tours too. If so, I'll make the reservations at the same time I make hers).
