First time Family TR Day 2

Apologies for delay, internet shocking

Day 2 - Universal Studios

Up at 5am (what I would give for a lie in) got the kids ready, breakfast at hotel and taxi to Universal. Arrived at about 8.30, Park was absolutely serene, literally nobody there. In 2 hours we did shrek, transformers (what a ride), pics with bumblebee, ET, Simpson’s ride, some simpsons aliens ride, pic with Dora and had a snack.

By the time the snack was gone the crowds had arrived, minion mayhem was up to 55 mins. The kids wanted to go in the pool so instead of going to Harry Potter we went back to the hotel and relaxed in the pool for a couple of hours.

Went to Cicis for dinner (had a groupon) was ok but not great. Then went to skeleton museum (again groupon), kids loved this took literally a 1000 pics. Then went to Checkers for tea, do not go here, it’s like a cheap version of MacDonald’s. Now back home and relaxing watching a film, another big day tomorrow VOLCANO BAY 😁😁😁😁

Walked 16,840 steps

Spent $140

If you want decent pizza, there is a Flippers about a mile up from Universal.

Cheap, buffet pizza does not sound good.

If you want decent, fast food hamburgers, there is a Five Guys just north of Metro West.

You get what you pay for.

I think Hollywood studios was always planned for day one, and universal/skeleton museum for day 2. Remember commenting on putting the 2 together but the skeleton museum had to be done before an offer expired 🤣🤣
