Disney World was AWESOME -- but I can't tell you how much fun we had at Universal Studios! We went to Islands of Adventure -- of course, because that's where the land of Harry Potter is!
I was just floored by the entire place:
First we walked through Dr Seuss land:
It was a quick walk, as everyone else couldn't wait to get to Harry Potter, but I kept stopping to take pictures. I mean, COME ON! How cute is this?
Well I have many more pictures of Seuss land --- but let's get to Harry Potter, shall we?
Seriously, the details are AMAZING!!! I'm not a HUGE Harry fan like many I know -- in fact I FINALLY just started reading the first book -- which came out when my teen was just a baby! But you don't have to be a fan to enjoy it -- here is the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. It's a 3D ride. Yeah, nobody told me it was SCARY! I should have known when they made you put all your loose articles in a locker, than probably I shouldn't have gone on it. If you can handle 3D -- & lots of movement at the same time -- then you'll love it!
My boys with their pumpkin juice. I didn't get a picture of them with their Butterbeer -- which was soooooo good -- that alone is worth the trip! I have a few recipes for Butterbeer to try out -- I hope I can find one that comes close!
Of course we had to get a pic next to the Hogwarts Express:
Made a quick trip through Jurassic Park:
Toon Lagoon -- ALL CARTOONS! So freakin' cute!
I was in AWE! I LOVE cartoons!
We ate lunch at the Comic Strip Cafe:
Heathcliff (isn't my son so clever? LOL)
Next up -- Superheros:
I'm not up on my Superheros but again, the details were amazing!
And here was the highlight of the boys' day:
It's not called the Hulk for nothing!
A net?? I really hope that's for personal belongings, & not persons LOL
We had the BEST TIME! Our whole trip was really fabulous. Our last full day we went to Blizzard Beach, which is a water park. Again, tons of fun & the weather was perfect for it (it was at least 90). I didn't get any pictures, because I didn't want to take my camera there. But let's just say, it was the perfect end to a perfect vacation!
Thanks so much for taking a peek at my week in Mouse Paradise! I sooo hope we can go back again some day!
On a personal note, I have decided that my stamping days are long over. I haven't had time to make a card in months & I don't see me having any more free time in the near future. Right now, all my stuff is boxed up. I had started a card about a week ago, but since all my stuff is packed away I doubt I will finish it. I was hoping to have a last hurrah-type post but it wasn't meant to be.
I have made so many good friends during these past few years -- & just because I won't be creating any more doesn't mean you are rid of me. I still like looking at pretty cards & I will still be visiting your blogs. I don't know what I will do -- if I will continue to post other things here or not. I still love to bake so maybe I will still post recipes. And I am learning more about my new camera so maybe some generic pictures will pop up here & there. I haven't decided yet how to sell my stuff -- I may post it here -- so don't unfollow me just yet!!!
Thank you so much for your support & friendship :)
Lots of hugs ~
