Greetings from Saskatchewan

One week from today I will be boarding a jet to come visit your wonderful State, taking the family to DisneyWorld . Since it was -20F this morning, I am looking forward to to the trip.

We plan to hit DisneyWorld 2 or 3 days, and also the Kennedy Space Centre mixed with a little relaxing. Any tips on how to get the best deals would be appreciated (I was already told not to purchase Disney passes in advance).

One thing I hope to avoid is the high roaming data charges, yet access to mobile internet for maps/etc could be invaluable. I came to the conclusion I would use a Mifi with a US sim as a mobile hotspot, but I am not certain of the best place to rent them. I almost bought a Verison one for the trip but lost the auction and it's too late to ship now. Any suggestions?

Thanks, and I look forward to the warm weather

Cheers,

Darrick

P.S. For curious football fans, our Grey Cup is tomorrow (CFL version of SuperBowl). It's being hosted in Saskatchewan and we are playing for the title, if you want to tune in and cheer for the green and white

Vince, not sure about how to best handle the roaming charges and all. Good luck with that.

If you can get on-line once your settled in at the hotel, let us know what your plans are for Sunday Lunch.

We are 'scheduled' to arrive 6pm Saturday evening, so we'll likely be stocking up on supplies Sunday at "Walmart Supercenter, Vineland Road, Kissimmee, FL, United States".

The condo we're staying in has wifi so I should be able to connect soon after arriving.

My advice would be to pay attention to your driving and don't run into the side of a semi from Alberta down there. Pretty sure that ruined their family vacation when I was down there a few weeks ago. I saw some stores and boothes in the local vicinity offering ticket packages and discounts, maybe the locals could tell you if they're any good or not?

So...who's in for a Florida Welcome Lunch in Kissimmee?
We could walk it off in Old Town afterwards.

It would sure be awesome to see everyone I could while I was there. This will be my first Florida trip, I don't get out as much as Dave

I can imagine playing chicken with an 18 wheeler wouldn't go well with the holiday...

That -20F didn't hang around (happily), game day Sunday it got up to 40F and maybe dropped to 25F. Cold for Florida, but can't complain for this time of year up here! The best part of the night was my Saskatchewan Roughriders spanking the Hamilton Tigercats 45-23. Winning the Grey Cup for only the 4th time in its 101 year history (despite having been to the final 20 times... )

It was a great day!

I'm surprised you're coherent enough to type a message the morning after! You should definately hang out with our southern friends, they are very good company and they like their hemi trucks to go fast.
