          We stayed at the Courtyard for 2 nights.

          The rooms are spacious, but I do agree they are dated. The showers are ridiculously dark if you draw the shower curtain. The toiletries are lovely and the beds are large, comfortable and have plenty of pillow. The hallways are uncomfortably warm and sticky. Wifi through the whole hotel, a computer room downstairs and a pool and fitness area.

          There is a concierge, but they are only in Courtyard during certain hours (i believe AM to midday). There are concierges at the other hotels though if you need something... There are two other Marriotts on the property, and there are a couple of restaurants and a Starbucks on site. The luxury shopping outlet is an easy 20 minute walk down the road (you pass other shops and restaurants on the way) or there are always shuttles on site to take you (a taxi is cheaper than the shuttle).

          We stayed at this hotel as part of a tour group and therefore had no say in where we stayed. This hotel is appropriate if you want to go to Disney, and thats about it. Universal, Seaworld, Wet and Wild, its all down the freeway. This hotel only offers free shuttles to Disney (although you do have to book a seat on the shuttle and pre determine what time you will get on a return shuttle - not always helpful when kids are concerned). If you want to go to any other park then you have to take a taxi (about $30) or see if concierge can organise a shuttle for you ($16-$20 per person).


          you can catch the number 8 bus from the luxury shopping outlet for $2 one way or $4.50 all day. It will get you within a reasonable distance to ALL of the other parks in about 1/2 an hour. The bus runs every 15ish minutes Mon-Fi or every 30 minutes on weekends. Stops are every couple of hundred metres.

          I would only recommend this hotel if you are going to Disney, and then there are probably more convenient, cheaper options.

          It's an early but short flight (with an annoying trek through Atlanta airport in the middle). Another car hire (and another argument with Dollar car rentals...). We find the hotel in the torrential rain and it looks nice, but there is a hurricane on the way, so there is a tinge of worry in the air.
          The rain clears up by …

          ... and I did a couple of trips when we first met, but just didn't have the time for a long motorcycle trip until I retired.  On the bike, we felt much more a part of the experience rather than looking at the world out a car windshield.  The destinations were all wonderful, but the motorcycle is what made the journey so memorable.  A lot of the difficult mountain roads would have been fun in a car, a real pain in an RV, but were spectacular on the motorcycle. ...

          Today we revisit the universal studios and island of adventure parks. On the last trip we spent almost the full day just doing the harry potter bits so we plan to cover the rest of the two parks today. We start out at the island of adventure where Owen goes on the Incredible Hulk rollercoaster and then we take a walk around the rest of the marvel area. Then we have a look around the toon lagoon (this is where the quotes in ...

On deck were couches, shading and a big jacuzzi. The navigation room was pretty cool with all sorts of gadgets and technology, grace spends alot of her time here. Any jobs that involve being on deck are usually within her duties. The whole yacht was in mint condition, like it were brand new. They have ...
