The Red Card

... Lightyear for our first attraction. The wait time was listed as 10 minutes. Fast passes were no longer being issued. That was fun! Next, we passed by Space Mountain but the wait was listed as 20 minutes so we will leave that for another day when we can take advantage of a fast pass. We went on to the Grand Prix racetrack – 10 minute wait listed. It was more like 15 minutes. Then we headed to explore the ...

Teenage Dream

... balloon in the bin - she could keep that to remember him by. Why oh why did I say that. I didn't think she'd actually want to fish it out. Atabey pulls it out of the bin for her in a rare act of kindness and she is deliriously happy. Suddenly making her this happy is all too much for him and he wrestles the balloon away from her and pops it. She yells at him and then sits on the bench and weeps. See - I did say it was a mini drama! She sulks until Ian arrives and ...

I would then finish school and with my impressive resume, simply slide into a full-time career and make beaucoups of money, live comfortably and meet a nice girl etc. etc. But Josh decided that he could not do life alone. And broken in the shower, after trying time and time again to conquer life single-handedly, cried out to God to retake the wheel of his life.

One more shift...

A travel blog entry by bradrediger

... LG and I will have my farewell dinner at CALIFORNIA GRILL! I can't wait! I am definitely going to enjoy every last moment tomorrow, as it will be spent with some of the greatest people on the face of the earth. After dinner, we will probably head back to Magic Kingdom and wander around, before I return to Chatham to spend my final night with the neighbors, Michael, Kristen, etc. :) I better go get ready for breakfast. Have a magical day!

    Historical Traveler Reviews Blue Heron Beach Resort Orlando

    Great location


    We stayed here for three nights and wish we could have stayed longer.The location is next to all the theme parks and is built right on beautiful Lake Bryan.The one bedroom sleeps 6 with 2 full bathrooms. All the units are brand new with high end furniture. Anything you need is nearby ie. (bars.supermarket,restaurants,outlet mall)

    Great location-very nice decor-beds?


    We booked "two "1 bedroom suites for Feb. 15-19th for Daytona 500( an hour drive if no traffic). They were ready and waiting for us as we arrived at 11:30 p.m. Delayed flight. The resort appointed the two rooms side by side which was a great plus for us. We really enjoyed how nicely decorated and the details that they put into the rooms. There are just couple things I feel they could and SHOULD improve.

    Blue Heron a great surprise


    We have now stayed at the Blue Heron twice. We have stayed in a 1 bedroom and a 2 bedroom unit. These units are very nicely appointed with high end furniture and granite countertops, full kitchen and dining area. The kids love the bunk beds in the hallway. Pool is very nice and the setting is peaceful with the lake in the back.

    Loved it


    Just returned from a two week vacation to Florida in which we spent 11 nights at the Blue Heron. We had actually only booked 8 nights, but liked it so much that we came back to spend our last three nights, having gone to Key West in between.

    What a find!


    We actually booked this trip through AAA, but found the resort via another travel website. Not many people know about this one yet so take advantage while you can! We stayed in a 1 bedroom condo and were extrememly happy with our unit. It was clean, roomy, and had everything we needed. Two big plusses: a full kitchen and an in unit stack washer and dryer. We went to Universal only during our stay and could hop on I-4 less than a half mile down the street. Located on Rt. 535, we were close to grocery stores, drug stores and even a Walmart. The staff were incredibly helpful - we had a few glitches but problems were solved immediately. All of our glitches were related to the newness of the resort (no iron in the room, exhaust fan in bath was not working), but everything was taken care of quickly. It was great to be able to have morning coffee on the balcony looking out over beautiful Lake Bryan. What a moneysaver to be able to cook and eat in the unit of we wanted to. This is a great place to stay and very affordable - AAA rate $130+ tax. Great price for all the amenities.

    Very pleased! The lake is a plus!


    Our family stayed in Tower 1 (5th floor) for a full week and loved it! We've stayed at other Orlando properties (including the Sheraton Vistana across the street) and thought this was the best by far.

    Pleasant surprise


    I was concerned when I saw that a second tower was under construction, but the stay was wonderful. The one bedroom condo we used was easily big enough for me, my wife and our three kids. The kids loved the bunk beds and my wife loved the full kitchen and granite counter tops.

    My new favorite in Orlando


    This condo is my family's new favorite in the Disney area. We loved the new building, pool, and view, and were minutes from downdown Disney. We had our own mini Thanksgiving dinner here, and the kitchen had everything we needed. The condo was better than anything we've rented in the park, and we spent a lot less money in the process. A great time and a great price.

    Great view and brand new


    Well, that was a pleasant surprise. I had to book a vacation last minute, and stumbled across this new hotel right outside of Disney World. We stayed in one of the one bedroom units, but there was plenty of room for the five of us, thanks to a bonus bunk area. We had a great view of the pool and Lake Bryan, and had a nice balcony to sit out on after our days at the parks. We also got a good deal on the room, because there's still some construction going on as they finish the second building. All in all, a great trip, and a nice find

    Blue Heron Beach Resort-Brand New & Great!


    You would be very, very lucky to stay in this BRAND NEW condominium complex. From what I understand, each unit is individually owned, but Festiva Resorts is the management company, so it rents like a regular resort, only better. Their manager, Kevin Blocker, and his staff made our stay one of the best ever! The unit we were in was a 1 BR, but easily could sleep 6. There were bunk beds in a hallway along with a sleeper sofa in the living area. The kingsized bed in the master was extremely comfortable with the jacuzzi tub in the bath. Hall bath was a full bath, not just shower. Linens were fluffy, absobant and abundant. Full sized kitchen with side by side refrigerator, full stove w/microwave and stocked with all a kitchen needs. High end furniture and professionally decorated. Balcony overlooks a wonderful lake. Pool is fantastic as well as the walkway overlooking the lake. SOOO close to everything, less than a mile from Disney . At night, you can see the Disney fireworks display from the higher floors. Also, is easy commute to Sea World and Universal. A small grocery store adjacent to propery was good for quick pickup of drinks, bread. milk etc, but would go to major chain to stock up for the week. A Walgreens is within walking distance, but you have to cross a busy highway to get to it. Felt very safe in complex since you had to use room key to go up the elevator. They are building more of these and if you can stay now, you'll get the opportunity to book a new condo (this is their first season open) at a bargain rate with amenities and management like a high end resort.
