The Portofino Bay Hotel

We stayed at the Universal Studios Orlando Resort this past weekend, the Portofino Bay Hotel to be more precise.  The room was nice and big, the service was excellent, the spa was a great experience, and the location was perfect.  I highly recommend this hotel, especially if you have kids, because whether you bring them or not, you will appreciate all of the added touches that make the resort romantic, yet kid-friendly at the same time.

If you order room service, get the French Toast.  The Omelette was good too, as were the breakfast potatoes.  Skip the fruit plate though, it was over priced and a lot of the fruit was not ripe.

If you have to come and go, definitely use valet, its convenient and will save you a lot of time.

I didn’t have time to ride the water taxi to City Walk, but that is definitely one of the perks to staying at the Portofino.  I can’t wait to go back.

Apple Store and the buying of a MacBook Pro

Buying a MacBook Pro at the Apple Store is a little like using the MacOS X for the first time.  You know its a store, just like you know its a computer, but it isn’t entirely clear how to do anything with either.

I stood in front of the laptop I was interested in buying, all of the employees were wearing red shirts but making eye contact with them was difficult.  Eventually, a red shirt came to me and said he would help me find another red shirt.  Eventually, the red shirt came back and brought with him another red shirt who didn’t exactly exude confidence.

I knew what I wanted, so from that point forward it wasn’t a problem, yet I still felt as though the experience was distracting and much more difficult than it should have been.

My brain is having a hard time holding all of the information I would like it to.  I setup this blog to help me remember and maybe provide some helpful information to others.
