Last Thursday, Garrett found out some friends from Texas were in Florida for summer vay-cay so we took them up on the offer to meet them in Orlando for the weekend. We drove down Friday night with plans to hit up the Icebar on I-Drive. Let me tell you, it was so cold! (duh) The parka/hooded fleece things they gave kept us somewhat warm, but after 40 mins in Ice my poor toes were very numb!
Saturday we hit up Universal Studios, with the new Wizarding World of l Harry Potter as our main goal. We learned a very important lesson that I will share, but only if you don’t get it my way next time! USE THE SINGLE RIDER LINE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE AT UNIVERSAL. Waiting 30-90 minutes to get on a rIde is a thing of the past with this tip. Even at the Harry Potter Forbidden Journey (castle) ride, the 90 minute posted wait was no more than 15 minutes for us using single rider. Oh, and try the Butterbeer (frozen if it’s hot). It’s sweet, yummy and only $4 a glass!
G and I both have annual passes to Universal’s parks through next summer now, and I’m looking forward to our next weekend getaway. Orlando & Universal was our first trip together a couple years ago and it was fun to reminisce with him about the whirlwind that has shaped us both since first started dating.
