Photo Friday: Tales of the vertical from Orlando, Florida

Having just visited a few days ago, I saw the prompt for Photo Friday this morning and immediately realized there were several things at the Universal Orlando Resort that qualify for inclusion in a collection of “vertical” photos. Here we go!

Good morning, Orlando!



Good morning, Orlando!, originally uploaded by Erin *~*~*.

I like this hotel. It is right outside Universal Orlando and just across the street from Wet N Wild. There’s an IHOP next door and a Walgreens on the next corner. Also, you get an olfactory treat from "Eau du Four Points" wafting through the lobby, same as when you go to the Walt Disney World Swan and you get "Eau du Swan".

Finally, the hotel is free using Starwood Preferred Guest points. Free is good :) If you want to know how you can stay free too, send me an email BellTinkR at gmail dot com.

[video] Safety Tips from the Sorting Hat

© Copyright 2011 | http://MyMobileAdventures.com

The Sorting Hat (cropped)After long and careful consideration, I have determined that if I could be any character in the world of Harry Potter, I’d like to be The Sorting Hat. I would be able to look into people’s minds and hearts and help them to figure out where they belong (that’s my B.A. in psyche talking 😉 ). And I’d deliver the Sword of Godric to any true Gryffindor whenever they had a need for it.

[pullquote]You must be more than goblin sized; 48 inches tall…[/pullquote]OH – and between bouts of sorting and swording, I’d deliver safety reminders in the queue at “Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey”. Not a bad life, eh? 😉

There’s very low light in the queue, plus the least bit of conversation tends to bounce around the cavernous space, but I think if you listen carefully, you’ll be able to hear the entire spiel.

Hey, #SWFL – Edison & Ford Winter Estates Groupon Deal!

Mina Edison in the GardenMy Mobile Adventures *~*~* mobile blogged a visit to the Edison & Ford Winter Estates earlier this month.  At $24 for the garden tour, I thought it was a BIT pricey, but $12 is a GREAT bargain!  So if you’re interested, jump on this deal – I think it will only be good for two more days (Until Monday May 30th 2011).

Review: by-the-slice pizza at EPCOT’s Via Napoli

Don’t do it. If I had any free hands, this would have gotten a big thumbs DOWN. However, it is raining on and off and no one has been by to squeegee the outdoor tables. Not wishing to put my plate down in a puddle, I took cover in that alcove near the stairs with the lady’s head on the bannister.

The "crust" – and I use that term loosely, since there isn’t anything remotely "crusty" about it – is bready, which is typical of Sicilian-style pizza. Neapolitan-style pizza does not seem to be available at the window. Since there’s nothing crispy going on anywhere on this thing, the "crust" is a FAIL. If you were expecting more than half a teaspoon of tomato sauce (I was), then you will be disappointed. The cheese at least is pretty fresh.

They are clearly making the take out window pizza on the cheap – VERY cheap. I won’t be doing this again unless someone – ok MANY someones tell me that it has improved.

Pixar’s 25th Anniversary Weekend

We picked up maps and brochures at EPCOT last night for Pixar’s 25th Anniversary Celebration. I just remembered they were in my"safari" bag, so I’m going to check it out while riding to the park. looks like there will be country-appropriate character meets around the World Showcase and some Pixar animators holding speaker sessions.
