We’ve been doing the Florida Disney trips for so long now that people have started asking us for advice on planning their own holidays. I have been sending this information out to people that wanted it via email but I thought that it might be useful to put this together in a blog post.… Read the rest
So this is the final post of the holiday I promise and it is the now traditional round-up post. Here I group together all the posts to allow you to quickly find the post most relevant to what you are interested in.… Read the rest
Our last full day. Boo! We chose to spend it in Universal which has lots of rides for all the family. It also is home to my least favourite ride: “Secure a locker at Hogwarts” which, as I have said previously, is a real pain and poorly designed.… Read the rest
We’d decided to go back to Universal today rather than use the Fast passes we had for Disney. That means that it is Disney 2 – Universal 2 so far in the battle of the parks.
We got there for park opening at 9am so that we could make our way straight to the new Harry Potter ride “Escape from Gringotts”.… Read the rest
There was a time when Disney’s Hollywood Studios would have ranked as our favourite park but based on today’s visit it won’t be getting top spot in 2018.
