... t hurt my neck on it like I did in Disneyland Paris. The roller coaster goes upside down a few times, but I tried my hardest to do a punk face for the whole ride.
After a quick ice cream, we went onto the Tower of Terror, and it was much better and different to the Paris one. I loved it so much we ended up going on it three times!

With her faith reaffirmed that not all rides are scary, we left Mexico travelling back around to all the other countries that we had visited before to find the Kidscot areas and have all the Country Cast members stamp Zoe and Hayley's souvenir puppets.

If we knew it was going to be this hot we would have brought bathers and did the water park also. Left the park right on closing and decided to go shopping at the premium outlets - why not! had the car, with a boot, kids were happy and we hadn't had enough in Hawaii. Anyway many bags were brought home. Now up to 5 ...
... coaster and said it was one of the best rides they have been on. Donna: yes, the Rock n Roller coaster was brilliant - take off and get to 60mph in 2 seconds with Aerosmith blasting. First part of the ride is in total darkness, and you do a couple of loops and fly around, then a few neon lights are on so you can see a bit, and you do a corkscrew and turns all at about 60 - it was great.

Historical Traveler Reviews La Quinta Inn Orlando International Drive North
Fairly basic but good location
We have just returned for our holidays - August 2004. We stayed at the Red Horse Inn for two weeks. During that time we found the hotel very basic and laking in atmosphere.
The choice for breakfast was very small including the breakfast area. There wasn't many tables and chairs to eat breakfast so quite often we ate by the swimming pool. For the majority of the holiday we ate breakfast elsewhere due to the fact that it wasn't a 'hearty cowboy breakfast' at all!
On a positice side, the hotel was very clean including the rooms. The swimming pool was of a good standard and the hotel location was within walking distance of good amenities.
I would return to the Red Horse Inn if I was on a budget and not planning to spend much time within the hotel.
Loved the Red Horse Inn
We stayed in the Red Horse Inn on International Drive for two weeks in August 2004, we found it to be very clean and the rooms were quite large. There was a self service laundry which was very handy when returning from the beach/pool/parks with wet towels and clothes. We would highly recommend it to anybody. The only down point was that there was no in-house restaurant but we soon got over that with the variety of different restaurants on our doorstep but they did provide a very substantial continential breakfast (free).
It was the worst place i ever stayed in. The staff were rude and not very pleasant. The rooms were disgusting and the windows were nailed together. The only good thing i can say about this hotel is that it is in a great location right across the road from Wet nd Wild and 5 min from Universal Studios.
Oh my god where do I start? Yes it looks good from the outside but the rooms are awful. On one of the beds there was a large stain of what looked like blood we noticed this because there was no fitted sheets on the beds just a flat sheet over the mattress. There was mold on the walls next to the beds. the bathroom stunk of mold and at 65.00 a night through expedia then when you get there they charge you a $5.oo night "resort fee". I was very disappointed. And angry!! Lesson learned STAY ON DISNEY PROPERTY AT THE ALL STAR RESORTS WELL WORTH PAYING THE DIFFRENCE. WHICH BY THE TIME THEY ADD ON THERE "RESORT FEES" IT EVENS OUT TO WHAT DISNEY RATES ARE.
Great place to stay
Hotel and service were great. The shower head was a little dirty and the setting arae for breackfest was small, but otherwise stay was great. The cowyboy breackfest was very nice, and the staff always made sure the food was being restocked.
Nice Lobby TRULY bad rooms.
The hotel lobby is truly inspiring. However, the rooms are the worse I have ever stayed (any where in the world). My girlfriend and I would not even take a shower. The bathroom tub was very stained and the everything looked abused. I don't recommend this place to any living creature. The rooms are just terrible. Oh! I tried a second room trying to give them a chance. Again, the final product was the same.
I would not stay here again
The only good thing about this place is the funky design in the entrance/reception area. The first room we were given smelled like paint and there were paint chips on the carpet. When we complained they switched us to a room with a filthy bathroom (previous guest's hair in the sink). It seemed they took the time (and money) to decorate the entrance/reception but neglected to upgrade the rooms. Also the 'complimentary' bus to the parks and the gym facilities is actually across the street at the Sheraton. We paid $75/night which included the $5 additional fee and taxes and it was not worth it.
i went on a school trip which i was really looking forward to and its not what i expected. it was better! youve got my compliments
The public areas are charming and themed, but the room we were given was early motel 6. not very clean no theme, the key didn't work. we waited in the hall for a long period until a maintenance man came to fix the door. there was a resort fee charge also takced on the room charges($5.00 per night). we checked out after the first night and stayed with relatives. the motel is however convenient to universal studios.
Staff was very helpful and careful to listen to and understand my questions. I would very much like to see a coffee machine in the building or perhaps a courtesy coffee pot in the breakfast area.
