I’m literally failing miserably at getting up all of my posts from My Disney World Trip that I took in July 2017! So far I’ve managed to post day 1 and day 2 so I have a long way to go haha. But I’m determined to get cracking with it and get it sorted! I usually post twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays, but I may do some extra posts to get these Disney posts done!
Day 3 – Universal Studios
Technically not Disney, but I still want to include it in my Disney series haha! On day 3 we headed to Universal Studios. We like to try and split up the days so we get a real mix of Disney and non-Disney parks. We managed a slight lay in this morning – like a whole 30 minutes extra in bed which was lush! I’ve always loved Universal Studios and was feeling really excited about all the Harry Potter bits.
What we got up to
We arrived at the park for opening, it’s such a great way to blitz the popular rides before the big queues. First up we went to Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit – My family are all massive wimps so Shaun was on his own for this one. We then headed straight across to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter where we went on Escape from Gringotts. I can’t even explain how amazing this ride is, it’s like a cross between a simulator and a rollercoaster and it’s so much fun! Next up was Men in Black – My family get so competitive with rides like this and I’m pleased to confirm I did beat my brothers score 😀 We then headed to Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon – Don’t get me wrong this was an incredible ride, it was a simulator but my god, it made me feel so sick so I had my eyes closed for most of it aha. But what I managed to see was very good. Next up was The Mummy – I actually forgot how fast this rollercoaster was, but it was great fun … Not sure my brother really appreciated it though!
We managed to blitz through all of this before lunch, this is why I really recommend getting to the park for when it opens as you get so much more done! We stopped at Louie’s Italian Restaurant for lunch which is where we always seem to go! They do really good pizza and pasta.
We took the afternoon slower. Starting off by having a wander around Diagon Alley, I picked up a really cool Harry Potter notebook and of course I had to get a chocolate frog! Then we headed to do the E.T. Ride followed by watching Terminator 2 which was honestly terrible haha.
We headed back to the hotel by about 5pm to get ready to go out for dinner in the evening.
Hope you enjoyed!
