Universal Studios

December 2016 - Orlando FL

The highlight of Universal had to be The Wizarding World of Harry Potter! This post is all about the rest of Universal Studios.
For a recap of our visit click here.

Once you pass through security you have a good walk to the gates with lots of entertaining sights.

There is no shortage of restaurants in this section!

We stopped into Margaritaville when we were leaving.

We started at the Island of Adventure.

We said we would head straight to Harry Potter's Hogsmeade but we get sidetracked on our quest as we walk through Marvel Super Hero Island.

And then we're sidetracked by a ride and anyone who knows John will be amazed he agreed to go on it.

After Hogsmeade we just wander.

Prepare to be soaked!

We went back to Hogsmeade for lunch at the Three Broomsticks, an early lunch, to beat the crowds.
then we headed over to Universal Studios Florida to do Harry Potter Diagon Alley.

After Harry's London we went to San Francisco.

The library lions Patience and Fortitude.

After stashing our cameras and bags in a locker we rode the Revenge of the Mummy ride and it was the most nerve-racking of the day.

There was no line up for the Shrek 4D movie so we headed in, Cute.

Next stop Hollywood.

The Simpsons!

Dr. Seuss

Who remembers these cartoons?

And it's time for the long walk back to our shuttle.

A perfect parting shot by John.

BTW we walked  22,710 steps or 9.67 miles/15.6 km!
