NaBloPoMo: Day 16 – Florida Vacation: Day 3

Today we went to the Universal parks to visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. This was probably one of the few parts of the trip that Peter was actually looking forward to. We got to the park super early and we were first in line. When the doors opened, we speed walked to WWofHP and went straight for the forbidden journey ride. When my Mom and I went in 2010, we chickened out and did not go on the ride. It was one of our biggest regrets.

The ride was awesome. I am so glad I wasn’t such a chicken. I don’t know if I’ve blogged about this before, but Peter did not really want to come on this trip. I sort of dragged him along. He doesn’t like rides and his reactions so far have been “Meh.” anyway, he actually said that the Harry Potter ride was definitely the best of our trip so far. He actually wants to go back on Thursday to go on the ride again.

We had butterbeer and as I had remembered, it was delicious. Peter didn’t think it was anything to shout about. He said it tasted too much like cream soda. It wasn’t worth spending the money to buy it. Not me, I want to get it again if we go back on Thursday. Haha.

The rest of the parks were okay. Nothing compares to Harry Potter. I wish that they had their Christmas celebration, Grinchmas, in full swing. However, it doesn’t start until December 1st. I really wanted to get pictures with the Grinch. Oh well, they had some decorations up, so I was some-what satisfied.

Merry Grinchmas

We are headed back over to the Magic Kingdom tonight for Mickey’s Christmas Party! Hot chocolate and cookies for the win. Plus, one of my friends and her son are also here while we are. So we are meeting up at splash mountain tonight and going on a couple rides together. So excited to see a piece of home while we are here.

    the harry potter ride is pretty much my least favorite ride in orlando. Only one that made me feel sick, lol. Even Bryan who isn’t prone to motion sickness.
    Hope you liked the christmas party!
