Happy New Year 2011 from Orlando Inside!

Happy New Year 2011!

Happy New Year everyone! Tonight is new years eve 2010, 2011. There will be lots of celebration going on all over the many theme parks here in Orlando Florida.

Walt Disney World will have fantastic fireworks at the Magic Kingdom, Epcot and Hollywood Studios. Most will fill to capacity late in the afternoon, so get in early and stay there if your going.

Universal Studios will have their CityWalk new years eve party with free food and a champagne toast at midnight. They also will have a cool show in the lagoon inside Universal Studios Orlando theme park.

Even Sea World will have a great fireworks and lit up water fountain show at the Bayside stadium. So all three major theme parks will have something to celebrate New Years Eve 2010-2011.

There will be lots of local Orlando area new years eve parties and fireworks too. Since it’s legal to have fireworks in Florida there is always a lot of people setting them off on new years eve.

I’m sure most are looking forward to a new year and hoping it will be better than this year. So from Orlando Inside, Happy New Year, and please drive safe and sober! :)

Universal Studios Lockers, Islands of Adventure Lockers, Family size

Islands of Adventure storage lockers

I was walking around Universal Studios Islands of Adventure the other day when I decided to check out the all day locker area. Yes Islands of Adventure has an all day and family sized storage lockers area.

Surprised? It’s actually a bit hard to find if you don’t know where it is, so I decided to take some pictures of it and explain the sizes and prices of the all day storage lockers at Universal Studios Islands of Adventure.

Now, there are several rides throughout Islands of Adventure that also have storage lockers right in front of them. However they tend to be small and it cost more to use them all day than the all day lockers.

Merry Christmas from Orlando Inside!

Merry Christmas

Every time I look at this picture I get a craving for candy canes! 😉 Today is Christmas day, so I just wanted to say I hope everyone has a great time today and you get everything you wanted.

It’s been a pretty good year for me, I can’t complain. I made several more websites and make a nice living working from home with them. If not for that I would likely be one of the unemployed right now.

I’m not doing much today, as my family is all up in Vermont. Maybe I’ll go see some friends of mine, or even go out to the theme parks and see how crowded it is!

I appreciate my readers and want to say thanks for taking the time to read my little site here. I hope you’ve gotten some information out of it and that it helped in some way.

So from Orlando Inside, which is basically just me, Bill, I wish you a Merry Christmas and happy New Years! :)
