3 Days at Universal/IOA & Loews Royal Pacific Resort (Updated 2/5)

We spent 3 nights/days at Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, and Loews Royal Pacific from Dec. 8th through Dec. 11th. I thought I would post the Universal parts over here, in case anyone is looking for Universal stuff and doesn't want to sort through the WDW trip reports. It was so much fun!

The full trip report is here (currently in progress): The One Where We Got Engaged

I'll update these links here as I go, but so far here are just the Universal parts of the trip report.

Saturday, December 8, 2012
Part 5: Loews Royal Pacific

Sunday, December 9, 2012
Part 6: Universal Studios
Part 7: Lunch at Finnegan's
Part 8: Universal Studios
Part 9: Islands of Adventure
Part 10: Dinner at Bubba Gump's

Monday, December 10, 2012
Part 11: Islands of Adventure & Lunch at Mythos
Part 12: Islands of Adventure & Dinner at Margaritaville

Tuesday, December 11, 2012
Part 13: Loews Royal Pacific
Part 14: Lunch at Lombard's, Universal Studios, & Islands of Adventure


Hope that helps someone!
