Oh, yes. I totally wouldn't go to Universal without staying onsite, unless I just had no choice. We are staying at Portofino Bay. We were looking at Hard Rock, but the price was just barely more for PB and we both just loved the way it looks. I've stayed at Hard Rock and loved it, but it's time to try something new! And frankly, stunning-looking. My sister is almost 30 going on about 16, so she and mornings do NOT get along. But she has assured me that she will get her butt out of bed and going for early entry. I've assured her I will ditch her and go alone if she's not up! But she promises she will be because she is really excited about all the HP stuff too.

I haven't been to WDW since Dec 2012 and DL since June 2011. I'm SOOOOOO overdue for both! However, now that we have 6 to pay for (for DL we just had to pay for us and the big kids, so 4 Disney adults - the littles were 2 and 6mo, so they were free; then for WDW, it was just hubby and I and the littles, and they were 4 and just turned 2, so only had to pay for 2A/1C), it's just not been in the cards. So we will go when the big ones aren't around anymore, or when they can help pay for their own way - they are 18 and 16 now, so maybe 2 or 3 years. The littles are 6 and 4 now, so I want to go again before they get too old to really enjoy all the characters, especially since the 6-year-old asks me all the time to go (secretly have the wheels turning for a "mom and me" trip with him, but I know full well that won't fly!).

Kristy - The Universal visit should be awesome. Are you staying on site? With early entry and room key fastpass, it really changes the touring plan.

We have two trips penciled in, one in August and one in November. I'm still on the fence about the August trip, mostly 'cause of the heat! But we haven't been since October, so we will be overdue by then.

Glad you both have trips to look forward to! Very exciting!

Interested in how you enjoy your Universal trip. I haven't been in years. Really looking forward to see the changes, whenever I can get there.

I want to run all the races!

Oooh, I can say I'm going to Florida this year now too! Except I'm not going to Disney this time - my sister and I are doing 4 days at Universal. Haven't been there since 2007 and I'm a huuuuugggge Harry Potter fan so am wicked excited to see Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade!

So excited that it is finally 2015! Now we can say we are going to Disney World this year, and next month! Can't wait!
