Thoughts on Disney World and Universal Studios: fun, humid, obscenely crowded, long lines, absurdly expensive.
We were delayed on our flight there, arriving 12 hours late and exhausted. It rained on and off, the entire time we were there, sometimes POURING on us. The weather did horrible things to my hair, that are now preserved in photos, and I may never forgive. I successfully ate from the surprisingly good Disney kids menu all week, which was very helpful. I wore my fitbit and logged insane miles, nearly every day we were there (Epcot day was NINE MILES). We missed lots of fun rides due to the long lines and waits being simply too much. Next time, we may save a few thousand dollars and just drive to San Antonio and take the kid to Six Flags. If we buy him enough souvenirs, he may not notice the difference.
And now, some photos!

How many calories are in a butterbeer? Who cares?! It was delightful!
Immediately after coming back, I headed off to ATX Television Festival all weekend, and did even more walking. Got to go to lots of fun panels and screenings, including Friday Night Lights, My So-Called Life, Vampire Diaries, and Veronica Mars (where I got to meet the beloved creator, Rob Thomas). Super fun times for a TV geek like me.
What have you guys been up to?
P.S. Oh, and in case you missed it, I hit ONEDERLAND last week!
