I expect a full report on this. It looks to me like a very decorated shopping mall with one ride. I am sure it must be better than that, so I want to here details.

hmm...
So far my prize package doesn't mention an event Saturday night; the "Nighttime Gala Event" is on Sunday night. Still, maybe Beorn and I will be at the edge of this red carpet somewhere, and perhaps the cameras will pick us up.

*splutter* She's only a year younger than I am!

You know what's creepy, though? Emma Watson is exactly my age, and the first Harry Potter film were coming out just as I was hitting puberty. Which means I've basically gone through my whole adolescent and teenage years thinking how hot she was and it all being completely age appropriate.

But now I can't watch any of the earlier films without feeling like a pervert. Embarassed

She's legal so it's all good. What's creepy is my 42 (until tomorrow when it gets even worse because I turn 43...) year old self having a naughty crush on Taylor Lautner who is only 19. He was born SIX years after I graduated high school. I am a very filthy woman. As for the Harry Potter kids, Matthew Lewis aka Neville and yes, he's 22. I'm a seriously dirty old woman.

There;s an adult nude model who is a dead ringer for Luna.
Needless to say she's posted all the time whenever Luna is mentioned.

In other forums.....bad forums......forums that I don't go to but my friends tell me about.....I don't even know where those forums are....... Embarassed

Beorn had class today until 5:00, and the parks closed at 7:00 pm. So that was one day of free passes to the parks unused. We actually arrived at the resort around 10:00 pm, as we stopped for dinner first.

The resort is beautiful, but why they originally reserved a room with a king size bed for a mother and son, I'll never know. No two bed rooms available for tonight, so we have a queen size bed and a full size convertible couch. Beorn is not pleased; the couch mattress is thin and every spring is easily felt. The front desk sent up a rollaway which seems to have a thicker, if narrower, mattress along with the promise to get us in to a two bed room tomorrow for the rest of the stay.

On top of that, there is a charge to print things in the business center, and wireless is only accessible in the lobby, unless you wish to pay.

Now that Beorn is settled, I'm headed back to the room and am going to settle for the night. Early admission to the parks is at 6:00 am. I doubt I'll make that, but we'll get there as early as we can.

I'm sorry, I couldn't resist, totally inappropriate naughty comment under the spoiler tags....

Spoiler:
Now if I could just win a trip to the twilight park and get awarded a special private ride on Taylor Lautner.....
