Universal Orlando Resort - a photo TR

I just returned from a weekend at Universal Orlando. Here are some photos I took. I hope you enjoy.


Welcome to Universal Orlando Resort


The bridge to the Royal Pacific


Boat transportation to and from the Loews resorts




I stayed at the beautiful Loews Royal Pacific Resort


My standard room


Standard Bath


I loved the themed scale models throughout the lobby




I saw this beauty on my walk to the new Cabana Bay Resort
*Note - You may not officially walk to the Cabana Bay Resort


I did enjoy the architecture


This reminded me of the old Miami Beach motels


The huge Skyliner Diner


The bowling alley looked fun


The lobby theming was nicely done


One of the pool areas


Buses take guests to and from Citywalk


The mini golf attraction at City Walk


City Walk at dusk



***


Welcome to Universal Studios




The new Transformers attraction isn't as good as the Spiderman attraction


Love the theming


A beautiful sunrise

Simpsons!

Kings Cross Station - gateway to the Hogwarts Express


So much detail










The Knight Bus


Inside the bus




Diagon Alley




The dragon breaths fire every so often


The queue to Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts begins here


Would you like to open an account?


The shop at the exit to the attraction




The dragon perched above Gringotts








The ice cream flavors available.


Myself with the Knight Bus

Great pictures! Can't trust that Spider-Man though - J. Jonah Jameson was right.

It's always so exciting to see a new trip report- especially with pictures. Thanks for that.... I'm so excited for my upcoming trip now!

Did you have any ice cream at Florean Fortescue's? What was your favorite flavor?

So glad you posted your pictures! I'll definitely recommend your TR to those "wondering if they should visit Universal!"
