    Great start to your trip report, Rosie!

    Your biscotti on the plane looks yummy - did it have chocolate on it? If not - I WIN!!!!!!!! :rotfl2:

    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!:rotfl:

    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. :sad2:

    Looking forward to more!:thumbsup2

    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? :rotfl2:

    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. :thumbsup2 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. :goodvibes

    You must have been absent when I started this many months ago. I am now down to 1 more Free Trip to Disney in 11 days:cool1::cool1:Universal will not rteplace Disney in my Heart , but I enjoyed it and many of the less scary rides !!:lmao:
    Royal Pacific is GORGEOUS, I loved sitting out in the Courtyard watching the Elephants , the whole place is beautiful !!!! As for RIP RIDE ROCKET Nooooooo I got scared watching it :lmao:

    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:thumbsup2
    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 ;):lmao: 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
    [​IMG]
    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

    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. :confused3 But it looks very yummy none the less. :thumbsup2

    I am all caught up now! What adventures you had with dogs on the cape and Elvis etc. It was great fun to read it all (and luckily we had a holiday here today, so lots of free time to read it!).

    So nobody did ride any rides at WWoHP that morning? :confused3 What did you think of Butter Beer? Did you get the frozen or the regular one?

    Oh yes some rode Harry Potter's Forbidden Journey and Dragon Challenge , as for Butter Beer I found it toooo sweet , but it was okay !!I had the Pear cider which was delish and Carol agreeed and when we ate at 3Broomsticks she had that , however the guys mostly had butter beer , I guess nothing is to sweet for them. No one had the frozen though !!

    I have to stop this TR as Disney is only a week away and I need to do a quick PTR of the final plans !!
