Sint Maarten 2019
We went to Sint Maarten (the Dutch part of the
island of St Martin) in November. Because of
the way the flights worked out we decided to
stop for a few days in Orlando on our way there
We went to the Universal Parks first and found very empty streets and very short lines, even
in the Harry Potter section. Plus we saw Popeye and took this picture for Gavin
A castle in the Harry Potter section.
At Disney World we went first to Animal
Kingdom to ride the Avatar ride we had
missed last year. We waited over two hours
for this ride last year. The sign says 70
minute wait, but in fact we were on the ride
in about 35 minutes. The other Avatar ride
had a wait of something like an hour and a
half, down from 3-4 hours at Christmastime
We finished the day at Hollywood Studios in the new section dedicated to Star Wars.
We rode one of the new rides there (the second doesn’t open until December). While
I really enjoyed the new ride, I’m sorry that they took out the stunt driving show to
make room for it. Couldn’t they just have expanded the Park?
