We started today out a little later because we were only going to spend a short time at Universal Studios today. Kyle decided to stay in today since he didn’t really enjoy Islands of Adventure. I lost out on the money I spent on his ticket, but I would much rather he be happy than worry about that. I left him some money to go down and grab something to eat from The Watercress Cafe Market, then Molly and I headed out. We grabbed some fruit at the cafe market for breakfast first.
I had gone to the Universal Studios in California and was looking forward to this one. It is much smaller and different than that one. I think it could use some updating. They are currently working on Diagon Alley. I wish it had been open when we went, but we did get to see a little bit of it above the fences. I liked seeing the different areas of the park, but it just didn’t excite me all that much. If I had known it was as small as it is, I would have done both Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios in the same day. That is my recommendation for sure!
We only stayed there til about 3:00. I wanted to go on Minion Mayhem but wasn’t willing to wait the 75 minutes in line. We did go on a few things and they were pretty cute.
When we got back, we relaxed a bit and then went back to Downtown Disney for dinner. This time we at ate House of Blues. I loved the pulled pork I got. Molly thought her grilled chicken was a little dry, but Kyle really liked his steak. We headed back to a couple of shops and then went back to the hotel to relax and pack for home!
