We loved the Hard Rock Hotel!!! We got up early and headed out to Universal. First ride was Hanna Barbara.. kids loved it (2 eight yr olds). We did Twister...scared kids a little, Earthquake and Jaws. The FOLT was the best!! We just cruised right up and got right on the rides! We went to Woody Woodpeckers and the kids loved the rollercoaster! Curious George's play area was super and the kids did not want to leave! We all rode the water slide at Fevel's playyard. I can't say enough of how much fun it all was! We ate at World Expo and Hot dog stand in the same area. The hotdogs were huge. Food was good, we were starved! Moving on..... My favorite was Men In Black! Spectacular! We finished our day with ET and Back to the future....and it was only 12:00!! We really wanted to try out IAO, so we decided to go over and check it out! We hubby and I rode HULK first! It was something else! I was not prepared for the BLAST OFF! If you have not been told, it blast you out of the first climb and was off and running! Hubby wanted to do it again and again! Next we hit Spiderman....too cute and very exciting! One kids favorites! Grabed a ice cream and off to Popeye's for the Log ride and River raft ride! WE ALL LOVED THESE and needed a good soaking. Let me mention you get reallyyyyyyy soaked! We left there and hit Jurrasic Park. Did the Rover Adventure. Kids were a little afraid but did it once. Getting tired, and hungry we decided to hit one more ride and start out. THE ALL TIME FAVORTIE OF THE KIDS WAS FLYING UNICORN! The rode it again and again! FOLT rocks! We hit Suess Landing on the way out, and did all the rides....a super place to cool off and watch the kids mingle with others. Left IAO and eat supper at Margarttaville.....yummy and you must have a margartita! I had a caribbean chicken salad and hubby had burger, kids chicken. Reasonable prices and neat atmosphere! Back to swim at the pool and chill out! I full day of fun and tomorrow we will hit AIO for a whole day!
