Elite Vacations Westhaven Hotel
Travel Blogs from Kissimmee
We were able to catch a free bus to Universal which stops at lots of hotels, ours being one of them. Universal is split into two areas and HP is now at both. Today we went to Universal Island of Adventures which had Hogwarts School and Hogsmead, although these are at the end of a fairly long walk passing numerous other 'exhibits' along the way, all being part of the Universal Studios home of characters.

The bellhops are creepy and full of warnings once you approach the ride and strap in. 16-20 of us sit in a service elevator that shoots up and down in the air giving you peeks out ...
... now. Any of you who have been to the US will know that their sit-down toilets in public buildings are automatic. A sensor detects when you sit down, then again when you stand up when it instigates a flush.
But there must have been something wrong with the one I was using, because as I was sitting there, doing what a man has to do, the damn thing went off. I'd only been sitting there for 30 seconds and it just flushed on it's own. Well, I'm not proud ...
