I can't believe that was your first time at Universal ever! That is cool you can finally go.

I am huge HP nerd so I loved WWOHP and that ride is awesome! I thought the rest of the park stunk besides the Spiderman ride, which was awesome as well! That ride technology is cool but the rest of the park outside of WWOHP looked dingy and old and outdated. The jurassic park was cool though!

Glad to read your Universal updates! Makes me want to go back. I am like you I only like the frozen butterbeer. it is delicous.

WOW!Since your UOR walk-a-bout,most comments have been about UOR-it must be an awesome place!

As the third biggest WDW fan in the world(behind you and Kristen(in no particular order),do you think I could go to UOR ONCE so I could say I have been and then not feel the "need" to go back every Holiday?

That is my concern,that I would like it so much,I would feel it necessary to take time from my "first love",the Walt Disney World Resort, and see Universal Orlando Resort "on the side" every Holiday!

Thanks for any advice!

I'm so glad you finally got to visit Universal. My family loves UO. We always stay at the onsite hotels there so we get the unlimited express pass.

Next time you go check out the kids area at Universal - it's actually really cute. There is a place where there are call cannons that shoot soft foam balls - we usually spend at least an hour there - my kids love it! The Fievel outdoor playground is really cool too - there is even a waterslide. We love the Despicable Me ride too.

Hey Jess, you just continue to amaze.
Thank you so much for including your work and home times along with the park times. I find the whole thing just amazing. A true diary.

The fact that being as busy as you are and you still are able to share this incredible journey with us is nothing short of remarkable.

PLUS you've finally discovered one of the BEST rides anywhere in the Revenge of the Mummy! I know Forbidden Journey is incredible, but the Mummy will always have my heart at Universal.

Of course Disney will still always trump all.

Now you just need to get over to Seaworld and ride Manta which is the only ride I like more than Mummy.
Especially if you're finding (like me) that you're getting a bit immune to thrill rides.
I think you'll LOVE it!

I just caught up on so many posts! One picture that you posted in an update, I wanted to say that I had seen it on instagram...and when I saw it originally I was just wowed by it. It really captured the magical feeling! And then I was reading through your updates, and you had posted it in here and said it was your favorite picture. It was of balloons w/ the Castle in the background. LOVE! Thank you again for sharing your adventures!
