A Magic Birthday Trip

Harry Potter World, here we come! Terry and I flew out of John Wayne Airport this afternoon, heading for Orlando. We had a brief layover at Houston Hobby and landed in Orlando about 9:45. We picked up my suitcase and got our Ford Fusion rental car from Alamo. Our hotel is on International Drive and that is a super easy street to find, there are signs everywhere. We had to pay at two tolls to get to the hotel, the first was $1.25 and the second, only about 2 miles away, was $1. Terry hates toll roads, at least the kind that are everywhere. Once on International Drive, we had some trouble locating the hotel. We stopped at a 7/11 to get beer for Terry and coffee for me. Terry then turned on his GPS and we were soon at our Holiday Inn Express. We have a lovely room on the 3rd floor. There is a refrigerator, coffee maker and microwave, a large bathroom and a decent air conditioner. International drive is filled with restaurants, we passed many we knew and some we have seen on cable commercials, but never in person. We are settled in our room, it is 9pm at home but midnight here. Tomorrow we are off to Universal Studios and then the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I am wildly excited!
