As part of my ongoing effort to explore more this year, I decided to jump on the opportunity to finally visit Universal Orlando through my SO’s work function. I’m sure you guys know that The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is located in both Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure so I got really excited about that. Luckily, his job offered a discounted 2 parks pass so we decided to take a full day to explore both parks.
I am a huge, and I mean HUGE, fan of roller coasters and I know Universal Orlando has some really good ones and I was determined to ride as many as I can. We had our day planned out beforehand since we needed to be strategic about it if we only had one day to get as much done as possible. If you guys have been to any theme parks, you know that the wait time can be a little ridiculous at times. Here are a few shots taken that day!
Harry Potter World was our last stop at Universal Studios. We then took the Hogwarts Express which is an actual train ride to Hogsmeade located at Islands of Adventure.
Destination Hogsmeade. You can see how crowded it was but since it was towards the end of the day, the line to the rides were pretty short. I eventually had to put my camera away to enjoy the rest of the day. I can finally cross this one off my list!
