Florida Memories #ThrowBackThursday

Ever since I was old enough to be aware of the wonder that was Orlando in Florida, I made it my mission to get there one day. Last year I fulfilled that dream.  So, here is a quick memory from last year.

Myself and my daughter spent 22 days in Orlando spending the majority of the time at Walt Disney World however a year ago today we left our Disney bubble and spent 7 days at Sapphire Falls Resort at Universal Studio’s.

This is the photo of part of the resort I took with our first hour of being there, I think. It was such a lovely hotel. It had only opened a few weeks before our stay there so everything felt fresh and new.

We were given our room passes which we kept on lanyards around our neck. I went for a Jurassic Park themed lanyard and my daughters was Captain America.

This was our room. It was so comfortable.

After a couple of hours of exploring the hotel and sorting out our stuff we caught the boat to City Walk.

Our holiday in Orlando was wonderful. It was definitely made up of the stuff dreams are made of. However this is supposed to be a brief Throwback Thursday Memory that I wanted to share with you.  Don’t worry though I have plenty more things to share with you at some point in the future.


New For Thursday

An Idea for Thursday. Just a quick intro until next week.

Thursdays. what is so wonderful about Thursdays??? It’s the day after Wednesday and the day before Friday, a link between the middle and the end of the week.

Thursday – “Thor’s” – Day 

Yes, Thursday was really named after the Norse god of Thunder – Thor (no not Chris Hemsworth’s Marvel version). Thor was around a number of centuries before Marvel adopted him.

Why, am I wittering on about Thursday’s ? I have no idea, but Thursday on this blog, my Blog, is going to be the day I talk about my days out, holidays, trips etc… I like to share my experiences of places. At the moment I don’t travel as much as I like, I really hope that will change in the future.


From now until the at least the end of the year. I will be sharing photo’s and experiences of my holiday in Florida.

On Wednesday 27 July 2016, myself and my daughter flew out to Orlando. We spent 21 days there, staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel for 14 nights and a hotel at Universal Studio’s for 7 nights.

We had a fantastic holiday. I want to share the things I enjoyed, also a few hiccups and maybe some stuff that may help others who are planning on taking a trip to Orlando.

So, Next Week I will tell you about our awful journey to the airport (Gatwick), missing our flight and our Walt Disney World Hotel. You know what they say, “the best laid plans”… We had a nightmare of a trip to the airport, but I will explain more next week.

Till then… Toodles x
