Tired Of Carrying All Your Stuff Around Walt Disney World or Universal? There’s A Fix For That!

When people go to Walt Disney World or Universal Orlando Resort for the day, especially when they have kids in tow, they tend to have to carry a lot of stuff. Depend on several factors, they may have to contend with holding:

  • Coats/jackets/ponchos
  • umbrellas/mister fans/sunglasses
  • Diaper bag
  • Toys for kids
  • Change of clothes
  • Bags upon bags of souvenirs
  • Coolers with food/drink/snacks/medication
  • Pocketbook/backpack/camera bag
  • etc. etc. etc.

And if you go on an attraction, it’s recommended that you take all your “stuff” with you (or potentially pay to put it into a locker), because even if you have a stroller or wheelchair for a member or members of your party, people have been known to steal things right out of them (and sometimes the entire wheelchair or stroller, with its contents!).

So we were thrilled when we recently read about an entrepreneur who has come up with an idea to help all these guests at the Central Florida theme parks with all the things they have to carry…

YMMV Travel Deals & Discounts: Tuesday, March 19, 2019

When we see travel deals, we always want to spread the word. So as we see them, we make sure to let you know. They run the gamut from hotels to flights to points to miles to car rentals and even stuff you need while you’ll traveling, like equipment, Uber discounts, theme park tickets, food for when you’re on the road, etc.

Heads up that some of these deals might be really limited in time or amount, or some could go on for days or longer. Some deals might be good for some people and not so much for others. There may be better deals out there and we just don’t know about them. We take no responsibility for any transaction you may or may not do; we’re just telling you what’s we’ve seen that’s out there at that very moment and it’s up to you to decide if it’s something useful, beneficial and worth it for you, and if you can take advantage of it before it’s too late. We take no responsibility for deals that are pulled before the “deal ends” date.

Here’s what’s out there right now:

Chasing Harry Potter: Following The Footsteps Of The Boy Who Lived

Sharon and I were both late to the Harry Potter phenomenon. It took a good friend of ours to get us hooked on the books (he had a trick of loaning the first book to people as something of a “gateway drug” to get them started). I can even remember the day I read the first book. In January 2006, I brought Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone with me on a plane ride to California (yes, people actually brought books with them back then). I finished it before the end of the trip and started the second book on the way home, Sharon started reading the books before me and we were both already four movies behind, but we took our work seriously and in no time we were caught up and have been fans ever since.
