After much debate we've (I) decided that we are going to Universal Studios in another week. The debate was whether or not we should spend the money for a vacation at this time. So I sat down with my wife and broke down the numbers. We dont fly so air fare is not an issue. It will cost about 7 tanks($400) of gas round trip. Universal is having a deal where you pay for 2 days and the 3rd for free, not a great deal but saves us about 20 dollars a person. That comes out to just over $500 for 4 of us for 3 days in US and IOA. I figure I can get a 3* hotel on priceline for about 50 dollars a night (last year I got the Best Western Plus for about 40 bucks a night). So for 1,200 dollars I can get us to Florida and back with 3 day tickets to Universal and 6 nights at a hotel. What I didnt mention to her is that I am also planning on buying us a 1 day hopper(another 550 or so) so we can hit Epcot and MK after we are done with Universal. God knows I need to get away from 25 degree weather with snow falling every week. I'm getting too old for these long cold winters.
