After MV3D, we decided to walk around a bit and just take our time. I have always wanted to find the umbrella. Yes, that umbrella. And find it, we did!



Too cute!



We went to One Man’s Dream next















Afterwards, we went to Voyage of the Little Mermaid













We went to Catastrophe Canyon next.











Continued in next post

From one of my favorite movies as a kid, Flight of the Navigator



I was so excited to see this once we got off the ride. I love Disney Villains!!











Now it was time for us to ride Toy Story Mania

Oh my goodness!!! We loved it!!!! I only took a few pictures in line, but the whole area was so cool to see!






We really wanted to see Beauty and the Beast so we headed that way. I snapped this as we were getting in line.



















Up next Hollie was ready to tackle Star Tours and so was I!







Now, it seems almost like we just got to the park. Again, I didn’t take a whole lot of pictures because of the weather.

Coming up our Universal day and we get to fly with Harry Potter!

The pictures from DHS were great. It sounds like you had a great day even if it rained.

Yay DHS day!! My favorite park!!! Sounds like you guys had a blast!! Sci Fi is so spectacular. I love it!! Sorry it was rainy, at least you found the umbrella.

Since you love Villans, have you seen all the new Villans stuff at the Disney Store/online? I love it. They went glam! Plus they have such great stuff with them in there classic looks. I personally want these ornaments! I am having a hard time wanting to spend $50 on them though! I did get this water bottle though! So fun! (Plus, you gotta love 2 for $16 deals on adult drinkware! )

Can't wait for Harry Potter stuff!!

You guys got in quite a bit on this Hollywood day.

Hollie's shirt is cute.

I saw a video of the new Lumiere in action in Belle's Storytime. It looked pretty cool!

So today was our Universal Day! I know Hollie was super excited. She just loves Universal. We got up bright and early. Here is my sweet girl all ready and waiting to leave







We arrived at Universal and of course, had to take some pictures outside the gate:





















I went and got our tickets while they took some pictures around the front. We made it in!







The way Universal works, in case you don’t know. Most of the attractions open at specific times. We walked towards E.T. and it didn’t open until 10 am. So we headed towards Shrek 4-D.









Now, this is one of the funniest moments I have ever witnessed happened. I literally still cry when I think about this. From laughing of course! We get inside and it’s a 3-D show. We had our glasses and the little movie started. I am sitting on the inside, Hollie beside me, then Shelby, then my sister, then my mom. Now, this little show is funny. It has all the fun stuff of Shrek all through it. At one point in the little movie, it shows spiders. Well, the chairs you are sitting in are bouncing up and down like your in a horse drawn carriage. When it shows the spiders and they start crawling everywhere on screen…you can feel spiders around your feet. I think it is a shot of air they shoot our or it almost feels like a little piece of cloth that is shot towards your feet to give the sensation of crawling. Well, it came to the this part. Now mind you, Hollie has seen this before but I don’t think her feet were this far down. So, here come the spiders. I feel the part on my ankles like the spiders are crawling. Well….so does Hollie. She lets out a yelp, literally jumps 5 feet in the air with her long legs and somehow she ends up tucking them under her, and lands perfectly on her knees in the chair……as she throws her glasses in the floor. By this time I have tears going down my face. She thought it was that real and that spiders were crawling up her leg and she freaked!!! It was hilarious!!! She was so glad to get out of there!

Next we went and rode one of my favorites…E.T.! I just love it!



Afterwards, we headed towards the Woody Woodpecker roller coaster. Shelby rode it one time and she was done! So, I sat out with her while my sister rode with Hollie









Next we headed towards Jaws....







Waiting in line

Now, a little story. Hollie has rode this ride at least 2 times before. The last time she rode it, she got a little scared. She said she doesn’t like stopping in the shed. She said this time she wouldn’t get scared. I will let you be the judge of that by looking at the photos…

All smiles….for now

















SHE’S DONE!!!





Next we headed towards Twister which is also another favorite of ours



Now after this, we had ridden other rides but I just didn’t take that many pictures. We decided to head on towards Islands of Adventure. That was one of the main reasons my mom planned this trip. She wanted to see all the Harry Potter stuff they had going on.
Here is a walk through CityWalk





We started walking towards Harry Potter










I am gonna stop right here so I can get all my Harry Potter and the rest of Islands pictures in order!
