On the theme of Halloween why not take a look at Universal Orlando’s Horror Make up Show, where you can see how the special effects artists create outrageous make up from the movies with creatures and spine tingling scenes in their demonstration show, you will also be shown movie clips and props up close.
It is an indoor show located in the Hollywood back lot area.
Parents beware, there may be scary scenes, but no height restriction.

If you want to do something a little different on your vacation, why not spend some time visiting the many different Resorts Hotels.
On a recent trip we stopped off at a few of Disney’s on site resort hotels, the first being Animal Kingdom Lodge, we had a look around the amazingly decorated lobby and went outside for a short walk, we saw giraffes and African wildlife as if we were in African Wildlife reserve park.
Another day, that we allocated for Hollywood studios we parked the car and went to the landing stage for a boat ride to the Swan and Dolphin Resort Hotel, to me it had a wonderful, exclusive, expensive feel [I wished I had been dressed a little smarter] very lavish and tastefully decorated.
We then walked along the Disney Boardwalk, it was early and very peaceful. We sat on the wicker sun lounges of the Disney’s Boardwalk Inn drinking in its beauty.
Further around we found Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resort, with a New England Yacht Club theme, there is a small beach area in front for visitors to relax and various nautical activities behind for paying quests staying at the Hotel. We then boarded the boat back for a fun filled day at Hollywood Studios.
Next day we drove to the Grand Floridian Resort, we parked in the car park, walked up to the Grand entrance to be greeted by a costumed concierge who was very friendly and took our photo as we posed in front of an old Victorian classic car. As we walked into the lobby I was awestruck at how everything was decorated so beautifully and grandeur. We walked outside to the jetty and saw in the distance the wedding pavilion. We continued our tour and found a café type restaurant and sat outside in a peaceful and opulent setting.
From here we boarded the mono-rail to the Polynesian Resort, again decorated tastefully in a Hawaiian theme, with sandy beaches outside and lush tropical gardens.
We again boarded the mono-rail going through Disney’s Contemporary Resort on the way back to the Grand Floridian.
We then drove to The Caribbean Beach Resort, I couldn’t believe how big the area was, it covers 200 acres and has five island villages around the shores of a huge lake, it really does have the atmosphere of being in the Caribbean.
Last but not least on this trip, my favourite of the resorts we visited is Disney’s Fort Wilderness. Which is situated in a ‘forest’ with it’s rustic cabins for accommodation or campout at one of the campgrounds, there are horse back and carriage rides, forest walks, water craft rental at the ‘beach’ Segways to ride, tennis and of course wildlife.
Here I have covered just a few of the Disney Resort Hotels, it seems that whatever theme you desire for your vacation Disney can accommodate your wishes.
