    • 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!

      What is the story behind all of the master locks attached to the bridge in various places? It appears that they may signify a tribute to a lost loved one, but I would like to know the history behind it-thank you!

      My family and I will be in Marathon mid March. I am buying my family Christmas gifts that can be used on our vacation. I want to get my parents a sunset dinner cruise or a gift card to a really nice restaurant, preferably on the water with outside dining. As close to Marathon as possible would be nice.

      Many years ago (late 50's early 60's) my family would vacation at the Jack Tar motel in Marathon. Many years later I visited and the motel was renamed the Salty Dog and it was a "fish camp". Does anyone know if the Salty Dog still exists.

      Me and my girlfriend are landing in FLL airport on Saturday and driving down to Key Largo to spend the night Sat. night. Then we will drive to Marathon on Sunday and spend a couple of days there before heading to South Beach. I am getting the feeling that there won't be much to do in MArathon and that it is not that scenic. i wanted to go to Key West but they are having gay pride week and I heard it will be a madhouse. I might visit anyway. Any suggestions would be great. Thank you
