Hollywood Studios

Daisy and I visited Hollywood Studios yesterday.  We got to see the Star Wars exhibits and some of the other shows.  This is another place we need to go back to.  Spent about 5 hours or so and only saw 4 shows.  Took our lunch instead of buying one so was a cheap day.

We purchased the season passes for Disney.  So parking was free ($20 a day).  Access to the four main parks is free.  This is a great way to go.  You don’t feel rushed trying to see everything in one visit.  We will schedule to go back when the weather warms up a little bit.  It got pretty chilly by 5 PM and I didn’t take a jacket along.

Will post some pictures later on.


VFW Dinner

Daisy and I helped the local VFW Post 5277 on Saturday host a group of disabled Veterans at Golden Corral in Clermont, FL. These fine men are all wheel chair bound and travel around doing wheel chair races.  They are in race in Ocela, FL and asked if the VFW might be able to support them.

20 Veterans and members of our VFW post met at Golden Corral.  He had a great time together.  The staff at Golden Corral was fantastic.  I wish these Vets the best in their race today.

Disney Season Passes!

One of the benefits of being FL residents is that the amusement parks offer discounted passes.  We had upgraded our 3 day Universal pass to an annual pass in December.  In January we purchased annual passes for Disney.

We have only managed to get to one park so far.  We visited Animal Kingdom and spent the day with JoAnn and Jim seeing the most important areas.  Saw several shows including Nemo.

There was a Harry Potter event at Universal at the end of the month so we went on Friday.  Found out that you had to have some special tickets ($100 each) to get into that part of the fun.  I like Harry Potter, but not that much.  The event added to the crowds so we just took our time and saw some of the other attractions.

Annual passes are going to be a great deal for us.  We can go at anytime Monday – Friday.  Parking is free.  Which means we can go late afternoon or just a few hours pretty much whenever we want.

60 years hold and going to amusement parks?  Oh well, they say getting older you revert back to your childhood.
