    Hi everyone! I want to thank y’all for sharing your trip reports. I enjoy reading them so much! Long time lurker here, but I am so excited about our upcoming trip that I had to chime in. My name is Ashley. Other travelers are DH, DS10, and DS8. We are leaving in less than a month! This will be our first real trip to Universal. We added on a few days at Universal to a Disney trip three years ago, and I loved it so much more than Disney, but we wanted to wait to go back until our younger son was tall enough to go on more rides. We live in New Orleans, so we are taking advantage of the kids having the week of Mardi Gras off to go.
    We are staying at RPR in a Jurassic Park kids suite. It looks so cool! I am so excited about having the express passes as well.
    We are big time HP fans! We read all the books together and are currently rewatching all the movies so they will be fresh in our minds. DS10 is actually turning 11 while we are there!!!
    I did make reservations at Trail’s End in Disney for his birthday. The kids and I are vegan, and the head chef there is famous for his vegan creations, so hopefully he is there that night.
    Anyway, nice to meet y’all!

    Hello and welcome to the dark side:D...I am glad you are looking forward to your trip next month. We love Universal and go at least once a year and have a blast. We did the same thing before we went in 2015 with the HP movies. My DD's BF hadn't seen them and it makes such a difference when you walk through and see it. We stay at HRH and CBBR as a split to get the EP cause we go in the summer. This year we are staying at RPR for a week. We are excited to spend time at a new resort.
    It sounds like you will have a great time and that's cool your son's birthday will be when you are there.
    Have a good trip!
