Universal Orlando

May 2016

Over the Memorial Day weekend, Sandra and her family decided on short notice to travel to Orlando and enjoy the attractions at the Universal theme parks. We got an early start on Sunday morning, checked in at the Portofino Bay Resort, and were in the park early enough to avoid the massive lines at the Harry Potter attraction. We departed Monday afternoon, after essentially two full days in the parks, and enjoyed most of the rides, including a few of the water rides were we managed to get soaked.

We drank butter beer, ate at City Walk, and swam in one of the pools at the hotel. Yes, the parks were crowded, especially on Sunday, but we had our Express Passes, and they helped us experience much of both parks without any terrible waits. Our rooms were nice, and we had a good time.
