So we have made it to Kissimmee after a 20-hour drive from Iowa. We are doing a pre-Disney star at the Rodeway Inn Maingate to take care of all the details for my son Michael’s memorial trip to the rest of the family. Right now it’s me and my DH. On Friday the rest of the circus arrives for 8 nights and they include 2 adult DDs, 2 SILs, 6 Grandchildren 15, 11, 11, 8, 5, and 5. Tomorrow my DH and I check into POR for 5 nights with park tickets. On Friday the rest fly in from Midway and we will have 3 rooms at AB POR with Park Hopper Plus Tickets for 8 nights.
Today DH and I are inspecting POR because we plan on dropping our bags off tomorrow at 6am. Then we go to work doing the DVC tour ro earn some money.
So today so far I can report the Rodeway Inn Maingate in Kissimmee is perfect for our needs. It’s $49 a night and I get a 5 percent credit to Amazon because of some promotion they are having. The pool is wonderful and clean. The rooms are aged but very clean. Even the carpet is clean. The mattresses are very comfortable. The “free” breakfast is juice, oatmeal, and bagels. We don’t do carbs so we walked across the street to the Publix and picked up fresh fruit. If you are looking for fresh and sparkly don’t go here but if you are looking for budget, clean, and doesn’t smell this is your place and the pool is way better than a regular budget motel.
Yesterday we did Raglan Road and it was wonderful, we shared a Shepherds Pie and a flight of pale beers. We didn’t see the show because we were to early. So, I was so impressed with Sam’s seasonal beer we are going back today at 4:30 pm to see the show and try the FIsh and CHips with more Sam’s Seasonal. And we are walking so I can have more than one.
We are also going to try to get a drink at House of Blues. I have never been and excited to check it out.
I’ll report later step count. Yesterday we were at 17,497 and we didn’t do a park.
