While searching for rooms via internet, we decided to grab a bite to eat. One restaurant that we miss in St. Louis area is Fuddruckers. (our youngest son's favorite restaurant) As we enjoyed the massive burgers and unlimited fries, we sent photos via cell phone to torture him. lol
With full bellies, we headed to the Westin at the airport. What a difference between the two hotels. We used points for the room but upgraded to a suite which was really sweet. This gave us free internet and a fabulous breakfast every day for just $30 more a day. And wow, what a room. Between watching the planes land just out one window (one runway was very close to the hotle) and enjoying the very nice pool, there wasn't much time left for internet.
We had been told you can get $5 off per ticket with a coke product can and/or go by McDonalds and pick up a coupon. We did the latter. Fair warning - purses and bags are searched on entrance into Hurricane Harbour. No food and drinks allowed. They want you to buy everything from them. ;) Hurricane Harbour definitely wasn't the Wet & Wild that we remembered but we weren't in our early 30's either. After about 3 hours of getting thrown around waterslides and standing in lines, we were ready to go.
We had our first dinner at Fuddruckers but we also headed to Red Lobster (Debe's favorite seafood place), to Dennys, and ordered calzones in the room.
