Day 8 Universal Studios

We both woke up before our alarm after an awful night sleep – that’s what a late night celebratory Krispy Kreme gets you! So we decided to just get ready and go to Universal Studios.

After parking, we headed to pick up our tickets which of course is never straightforward! Eventually we got to the front of the queue and got sorted ready to join another queue to get into the park…..sense a theme coming on?

In the park, we headed straight for Diagon Alley and to Gringotts bank before the queue had much time to form. 15 minutes later we were whirling around the tracks get wowed by the graphics and effects!

After that excitement we were starving and ready for some breakfast at the Leaky Cauldron (luckily for us it was normal food!).

Fueled up and ready to go, we started to adventure round the park and go on other rides where the queues weren’t too ridiculous….

Before we knew it, it was lunch time and the weather was piping hot, so I persuaded Matt (not that his arm needed twisting much) to go to Ben & Jerry’s – after all, when in Rome…..

The trouble is, I’m a clumsy klutz at times and it can be a real problem….

So off on our next mission….to find me a new top….

Luckily it didn’t take too long to find a replacement so we decided to switch it up and catch the Hogwarts express over to the other park.

Obviously we rode in the best carriage….

We are arrived at a PACKED Hogsmeade and with the weather only getting warmer, we decided to call it and go on a mission to the Hard Rock Café.

The Hard Rock Café in Orlando is the largest in the world, it looks like it is in an old school colosseum. The shop was a temptation in itself to buy everything, but I remained restrained!

After the final obligatory photos we headed back to the hotel for a relaxing swim in the pool and a laid back evening.
