My first trip to Orlando was in December '71 when I was 8 to see the newly opened Walt Disney World Resort. We stayed at The Poly and thus started my life long love of theme/amusement parks. We traveled to Orlando numerous times during the '70s and '80s. In 1990, I brought my future wife to Orlando for her first trip to WDW and we took a day and visited the newly opened USF. We loved it. In 1993 we moved to Orlando for me to go to Full Sail. While at Full Sail I actually had 2 classes at USF. Alas, in Jan. '95 we moved to Denver. I kept up with all the changes happening in Orlando (DAK and IOA), but I didn't make it back to Otown until a business trip in 2006. On that trip I hit both new parks. I loved DAK, but was totally blown away with how UOR had changed and IOA was the most amazing park I had ever visited. In 2009, I moved back to Orlando just as Potter construction was starting. I still absolutely love the entire UOR complex. But IOA is my favorite part and probably my favorite park anywhere. Spider-man, Potter, Hulk, JPRA, Kong, Bluto's, CITH, and soon Hagrid's is a hard line-up to beat.
