    Having a great time, but having the afternoon off due to the very hot weather.
    We will be heading out for tea and back out to the parks tonight once the sun has eased off a bit. 97o today.

    We are loving Harry Potter land. It is small but well themed. Liam was picked in Ollivanders for to get a wand, he was well chuffed. The queues are silly though. I'm glad we are staying onsite and getting in early. We were there Just after 7 this morning and it was still packed. For people not wanting to ride it's still worth walking through to see the inside of the castle.

    Busch gardens was much better than I thought it would be, this was our first ever visit. Connor is big enough now to get on all the coasters and he loves them all. Our giraffe safari was fantastic a real highlight too.

    Aquatica was pure heaven, I had booked a cabana online but when we got there they gave us one of the deluxe cabanas on the little island between the two wave pools. We were able to order our lunch which they brought to us in a little picnic basket. The loungers were so comfy too.

    The hard rock has been great, the kids love the pool and the club level offerings are great. We have had breakfast every morning and went out for lunch and ate the club offerings at tea time. Also the club bottled water has saved us a fortune in the parks.

    We have had a fantastic week and are looking forward to our Disney part of our trip which starts tomorrow.

    Take care everyone and if you are coming out soon be prepared for the heat. We have been here in the summer before but it's never been this hot. We are park people but we have been spending lots of time in the pool this year.

    Thanks for the live report! Harry Potter is such a huge success, isn't it? So popular and continuously mobbed!

    It is HOT!!! No doubt about that. It seems hotter than it usually is for some reason. Terrible storms yesterday. We traveled through them to get home (in central FL).

    It's good that you are spending much time staying cool with swimming and moving a bit slower through the parks. It makes things much more enjoyable when it do it that way.

    Take care now and hope you continue to have a great time!
