Great start to your trip report, Rosie!

Your biscotti on the plane looks yummy - did it have chocolate on it? If not - I WIN!!!!!!!!

Can't wait for more and I do not blame you for not riding Rip Ride Rockit! While it is really good fun, it is a bit extreme.

Hmm...how come I didn't get a link? Out of the loop as usual!

Rosie, I haven't been to Universal since it was new (back then my faves were Back the Future (virtual reality), Earthquake and ET (sooo cute!!) - think these are all history now , so I don't know a thing about any of the new stuff - enjoying following along and enjoying the pics!

Poor Carol!! Guess things do not flow as easily as at a Disney Resort.

Looking forward to more!

I'm here to read all about. It looks like your trip is off to a great start. I haven't been to Universal in years. I do love the Royal Pacific.

What? No Rip Ride Rocket?

Great start to the TR! I only had dinner at Royal Pacific, but fell in love with the place as well, so beautiful!

So - what did you think about Universal? Seems like you had a good start at the Studio Park. Despicable Me was not open yet when I was there and we skipped Shrek and the coaster, so all of those attractions would be new to me.

I liked Despicable Me and Shrek a lot , stay tuned to see how the trip went ... of course it is a Rosie Report so something comical had to happen !!!

Okay Whilst making another memory book I multi tasked and uploaded more pix
The next day (Friday) we headed to Islands of Adventure , I had learned of the short cut to Harry Potter World and successfully took it , which for me with a terrible sense of direction was a major feat We were in the first group into Olivanders , which was a HUGE thrill for our Hamburger/ dancer , he's a HUGE Potter fan. So several wands were purchased and we looked around

Butter Beer was next up and as Three Broomsticks accepts AAA we went inside and did not buy at the Barrell


On our way to Lunch at Mythos we stopped at Hogsworth Express



Now for some serios Food Porn

Hamburger for Guesss who?????



The Flatbread which is on the appie menu , but what ever


Salad with Salmon



I think this was the Short Ribs



Chicken Wrap



My Filet!!!!!

The Food and the service were superb, our waiter was Robert and he was super attentive

Stay tuned for more

Thanks for the update, Rosie!
We have not been to UO since the HP part opened up, so all those photos are pretty amazing!
Did I read that correctly ....... the food is from Mythos? If it is, it looks pretty different to the style they were serving when we still went there. But it looks very yummy none the less.

Yes it was Mythos !! The Filet was very good , portions not huge but enough for me anyway !!!Everyone was happy with there food !! I was happy the flatbread was large as it was on the appies list !!The hamburger was also a hit , if I remember correctly they also had mini desserts which were a BIG hit !!!!!
