We were really excited to stay at Loews Hard Rock Hotel at Universal Orlando. My son had this resort on his wish list since our first visit to Universal, but we just couldn’t justify the cost. Luckily, since we became Annual Passholders we got a great discount and made it happen for his Birthday celebration! Read to find out why the Hard Rock Hotel turned out to not really be our cup of tea.
This is my first trip report and I’m a little nervous. Planning trips is something that I absolutely LOVE to do. Planning my own trips (a little obsessively) is what made me decide to become a travel agent five years ago! My personal trips are always planned down to the hour… you think I’m kidding but I’m not. I have a binder and everything.
I also budget my trip to the dollar. Budgeting is something that is very important in my life since we relied on one income for a very long time. Today I am going to share our budget, costs, and what we did each day of our 10 night/11 day trip to Florida!
I never understood the YouTube watching addiction until I discovered theme park vlogs on YouTube! I didn’t even know that vlogging was a THING! Now I’m hooked and I’m going to share with you my FAVORITE theme park YouTube channels to watch! Of course they are all Disney/Universal related!
You can’t miss it. As you walk into Universal CityWalk, there it is in all it’s glory! The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen is a unique building sitting in between Universal’s Island of Adventure & Universal Studios. You may think that it’s only a sweet shop, but you would be very wrong! Check out what we thought of this noteworthy restaurant at Universal CityWalk.
I REALLY enjoy the theme at Islands of Adventure compared to Universal Studios. It feels like more than just a typical theme park because there are different worlds inside! There aren’t as many rides here that I really enjoy, but I was still able to name my top 5! Keep reading to find out which Universal Islands of Adventure Attractions I think are the best!
