Sleepy Thursday in Orlando

We decided to sleep in today and boy did we.  We needed the rest.  I finally got up at 8:30 to work on some taxes and other bookkeeping.  Peggy – well a little later.

Today is laundry day as the sock drawer is looking empty!  Laundry at the campground is always interesting as you never know who you will meet.  Laundry here is eight washers and eight dryers.  We had so much we drove it up to the office building.  All the washers were open – all the dryers were being used, did I mention we sleep in?  It takes lots of quarters to do the pile of laundry we have.  I left Peggy at the office with the truck and walked back to continue with bookkeeping.  I saw here about 1 1/2 hours later.

After lunch we went to Camping World to get a few parts.  We prefer Amazon for our shopping but we needed a part today for a drawer repair.  Click on the link below and search for anything and I mean anything!

We were asked about our touring schedule for Universal.  We are using a cool app called Touring Plans.  Check out their link. for six bucks a year you can get plans for all the Disney parks, Universal parks, Disney cruises, and even Disney in California.  You can choose a plan to suit you, make your own, or modify one of their plans.  We are using a modified Senior plan.  No kids rides and we walk slower.  We took off the roller coasters Peggy doesn’t like, added where we want to eat, and when we want to take a break.  There website will evaluate and optimize your plan for the day you want to go.  You then put the app on your phone and tell it whenever you completed an event and it re-optimizes you plan for crowd activity, time of day, and even a ride breakdown.  It is really cool.  It even remembers the Disney schedules we used three years ago and we lapsed the annual fee during that time.  If you like efficiency and want to avoid walking to only find you are 5 minutes late for a show this is the deal.

This is a copy of our plan for tomorrow.  (The map doesn’t copy the route but it will on your phone app)
