    Do you actually eat bugs and stuff? lol, I dunno if I could do that... I have a pretty wimp ass stomach - I don't even like too much toothpaste on my toothbrush or I'll gag... see? Wimp Ass! But I'd do the fun adrenaline stuff.

      Yes go to Universal! I was there last yeat and it was so awesome! You can do a behind the scenes tour when they bring you around to all the rides and show you stuff you normally wouldn't get to see - like how the spiderman ride is made and fun stull like that. Plus then you get to jump to the front of the lines and never wait. And if you want to be in the back row on the dueling dragons ride - sure as heck you will be! then you go right back and ride the front row on the other ride. It was the most intense ride i've ever been on and I screamed my brains out (on the one where we were in the front) And i'm totally not a rollarcoaster screamer. FUN FUN FUN!!!

      You can choose to do the exciting stuff or the nasty eat bugs, put your head in a cage with trantula spiders stuff. We signed up for the adrenaline stuff. It was awesome!

      Oh, and at MGM I highly recommend the Areosmith(sp?) rockin' roller coaster. AWESOME! But, try and sit front row if you can. AMAZING! Oh, and keep your head back from the very beginning. You'll understand if you ride it.

        I LOVE that ride! You're right, sitting at the front makes a huge difference! Sometimes I don't like that you can see the tracks - but I love the indoor rollercoasters, very cool!

        I also love the Mummy Ride and Universal. That is the BEST rollercoaster in the entire world. That's the thing I love about the Disney/most universal rides... they're not about the g-force or making you puke, they play more mind games.

        Aww, I wanna go right now! lol.

          Oh ya it is worth it!! It is exspensive though. I think it was around $25US for a meal. But it was good and its really beautiful in there! I think you would really enjoy it! And how many people get to say theyve eaten in Cinderellas castle??

            We went to Disney for our honeymoon just this past May.

            In case the concierge isn't aware when you check in, let them know you're honeymooners. They have these really cute "Just Married" pins that you can wear around the parks, or, they just make really great souvenirs. We had a lot of people congratulating us, while some of the ride operators would tease us and say "so that's why the line is taking so long, honeymooners holding things up!" It was a lot of fun.

            In case no one mentions it to you, be sure you get your phone call from Mickey and Minnie. Someone who works for the park will know what you mean. :-)

            I'm not sure if I need to tell you this since you've been there before, but if you're coffee drinkers and enjoy good coffee (or tea for that matter), look around for the small coffee vendors that don't accept room cards as payment. They were the only places we could find a decent caffeine fix. I know there's one just inside the gates at Animal Kingdom, and one or two scattered around Epcot. They're probably elsewhere too, but I just didn't notice them.

            Not sure about the timing of your honeymoon, but if either of you are Star Wars fans, MGM does Star Wars weekends every year, sometimes starting mid-May and going until Mid-June, and sometimes starting June and going for the entire month. I missed out by two weeks when we were there (yes, I'm a die hard fan, and the hubby still loves me!). They put on a special parade and have different stars from the movies make appearences.

            Hope you guys have a blast! We're already planning a trip back!

              Wow, great stuff - thanks! Everyone seems to think we're complete weirdos for honeymooning in Disney, but I think Aaron (... and I ) are looking forward to disney almost more than the wedding!

              Keep the tips coming - those are great. :)
