HHN out. Grinchmas in.
4 minutes and 20 seconds with…
The parks are great for going on things, but it is also nice to just go and not go on anything. Wait. What? You read that correctly. Sometimes (pretty much always in this current climate), when I go to Universal, I just walk around and take photos or […]

Take a tour of the Universal Studios Florida Mardi Gras Tribute Store!
Hagrid’s Magical Creatures queue walkthrough
A new Harry Potter attraction is set to open at Islands of Adventure on June 13th! I was very lucky to get a preview to Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure at a media event! Here’s video from the queue. Warning, it might make you miss Dueling Dragons!
Unusual Snack From Universal
Some folks like to eat at fancy restaurants when they’re at theme parks. Others are ok with burgers from a counter service place. Pretzels, popcorn and churros are also yummy. But what if you wanted to try something a little outside your comfort zone? Well, Universal has you covered! In […]

Technically there’s still two more nights of Halloween Horror Nights, but Universal has already fully dressed Seuss Landing and decorations have started popping up in Hogsmeade at Islands of Adventure! This will be the first year […]
