ugh EVERY time!Oh man, does it. And I hate getting trapped in a bunch of people who are standing on the moving walkway and blocking me from moving any faster!!!
Awesome idea! He looks so happy!Once we had it printed, the TM suggested getting Spider-Man to sign it too, so DS was super excited about his souvenirs!
Wow- great deal.DH and I used that time to check out the Southwest flights, which had just dropped for our planned December trip back to Universal before our passes expired, and were able to book our flights for only $44 after using DH’s Southwest points!
Definitely takes away some of the sting of leaving to know you have another trip coming.It was really fun to book our return trip while on the last day of a trip.
Oh noo Glad it was still there but that must've been a stressful time.I realized I had left it in the stall! I ran back to get it, and thankfully it was still there, but after all that running in the heat I felt pretty freaking awful!
Woo! Awesome!But we poked around a bit on the Wyndham site and saw we actually had enough points for another night, so we were able to add Thursday night to our plans!
That really looks awesome! L would love that!The Raptor Encounter was open by then, so we decided to go get in line for that. We finally got to meet Blue!
Wow! That's incredible. What a lucky break!After that, we walked over to Revenge of the Mummy, trying to convince DS to go ahead and ride so we could all ride together, but he refused. DH and I were trying to figure out if we could go through the single rider line and still do a rider swap, so I’m guessing we looked a little confused. One of the Universal VIP tour guides approached us and asked if we needed help with something, and I REALLY wish I would have gotten her name! When we said what we were trying to figure out, she said, “Do you want me to just bring you up there?” We happily said yes, and she backdoored us into the ride!
When we were at the counter adding our ride photo, I pointed out to DS one of the display photos with Frank the Pug in it, and joked we should ride with him next time so we could get him in our photo. The TM was listening, and said, “How about I put him in your picture
Hmmm... nice tip!e ended up at The Burger Digs and we all got kids burgers. They are the same size as the regular burgers but not as expensive. It might come with a little less fries, but it's definitely enough for us to eat.
That really looks like a neat show!That ended up being our last ride of the day, as we grabbed our last Icee for the day and then got a spot to wait for Cinematic Celebration to begin.
Good deal! I mean $44 for a flight is fantastic, and it does help with the last day blues to actively be working toward your return trip in a few months.Next, we stopped at Camp Jurassic so DS could play for a little bit. DH and I used that time to check out the Southwest flights, which had just dropped for our planned December trip back to Universal before our passes expired, and were able to book our flights for only $44 after using DH’s Southwest points! It was really fun to book our return trip while on the last day of a trip.
It's nice going with DS that there isn't too much we need to swap on, but it's even better that their attractions are fairly easy to take turns on too.Worked out nicely that you could ride the Hulk while the boys did Spiderman and then swapped with DH!
Glad DS finally got to meet Spiderman and got his hat signed- very cool!
Great family photos!!
Sounds like a really great morning/afternoon! And a productive time planning your Dec trip (which I can't wait to hear about)!
Yes, my stomach was in knots!! I would have felt terrible if I had been responsible for losing it for him.Was happy to read your bag was still in the stall
Bet you had a pounding heart rushing to go back for it!
Happy endings are the best!!
He was! It was a memorable moment of this trip, for sure.Awesome idea! He looks so happy!
It really really does. I think that's why I had such a hard time with our December trip. I was sad before it even started because I knew we wouldn't be back for a long time after it was over!Definitely takes away some of the sting of leaving to know you have another trip coming.
It really was. I felt sick to my stomach running back to that bathroom!Oh noo Glad it was still there but that must've been a stressful time.
Yep, it made his favorite hat even more special to have it signed!That was a really neat idea, getting the hat signed by Spider-Man, since it was already a favorite!
Oh gosh, I can't imagine the stress that must have ensued when you realized you'd forgotten the bag in the bathroom. Thank goodness it was still there.
It always eases the blow of finishing a vacation when you can already plan for the next one.
He definitely would! It's so fun, especially for little dinosaur loving boys!That really looks awesome! L would love that!
Yes, I was soooo relieved!!Wow! That's incredible. What a lucky break!
Universal did a great job with this one. It's very impressive, especially considering they can't do a huge fireworks spectacular like Disney does because of their proximity to residents. They did a great job weaving in some of their biggest IPs.That really looks like a neat show!
It's always great to have a return trip in mind already when you're finishing up a trip. And only having to pay taxes and fees on our flights was an even bigger bonus!!Good deal! I mean $44 for a flight is fantastic, and it does help with the last day blues to actively be working toward your return trip in a few months.
Thanks so much!Really enjoyed reading about your trip. I have one, what may be a silly question, the AP 'ICEE" cup.. where did you purchase this? Are they sold at the carts with the regular freestyle cups?
I love all of these!Our first stop was to go back to The Darkroom photo studio for some more silly photos.
I hate when this happens.Unfortunately, by the time we got over there, it was posted at 45 minutes, which was not something we were willing to do.
Oh no. Universal marketing knows how to get you on that one for sure!It was all fun & games until we told DS that no, we were not buying him ANOTHER wand.
Aww.I don’t know if it was just exhaustion or what but he lost it and dissolved into tears because he didn’t like the idea that this would be our last trip here just the three of us
The ET pictures were so fun! We had a blast taking those and the Darkroom ones,Love the pics, especially the ET ones!!
Sounds like a fun final evening!
Aww I guess DS really enjoyed his alone time trips with you guys!
Hopping over to December's now!
It's the My Universal Photos package! We got it for free for being chosen as Family of the Day earlier in the trip, and all of the photo locations and ride photos are included!The Universal photos are great!!! Did you have buy them or do they have something similar to Disney photo pass? I love the one with Bumblebee, do they have him as a character or did they just add that to the background??
They were so fun to take!! We loved that part of having the photo packageI love all of these!
Me too, that's the bad thing about those wait times on the app. Everyone sees it and has the same idea!I hate when this happens.
Yes, the parents are the ones really suffering here lol. Thankfully he got over it!Oh no. Universal marketing knows how to get you on that one for sure!
Thanks for following along!!Thanks for another great report! Hopping to the new one now!
Because everybody else looked at the app and had the same idea...Unfortunately, by the time we got over there, it was posted at 45 minutes, which was not something we were willing to do.
Somehow, I knew this was going to happen when you said he got picked again.It was all fun & games until we told DS that no, we were not buying him ANOTHER wand. He didn’t like that answer at all, even though we tried explaining that he has literally $150 worth of interactive wands on display in his room! Even though we had told him the last time he’d gotten picked and we bought the wand that if he ever got chosen again we were not buying it, I think he thought that if it actually happened we would give in a buy it, but it wasn’t happening this time.
This is usually what is going on in the passenger seat on our road trips too.I didn’t sleep well on our last night there for some reason, so DH caught this photo of me which is I’m pretty sure how I looked for 90% of the drive home.
Yes, this is definitely the most frustrating part of having to rely on the app for wait times to try to get on popular stuff. You have to be lucky and catch it right when the wait time goes down and before everyone else notices it!Because everybody else looked at the app and had the same idea...
As soon as we walked in, I realized I should have warned him that we wouldn't be buying another wand, but it was too late, they had already picked him.Somehow, I knew this was going to happen when you said he got picked again.
This is usually what is going on in the passenger seat on our road trips too.
Thanks so much for following along!As always, I enjoyed reading about your trip! Looking forward to reading about the next one and seeing if the addition of his little sister ruined his trip!
