Our destination today wasn't as far - Universal Studios Orlando! Kiddos didn't figure this clue out completely until the GPS said to turn on Universal Drive. Samantha knew where we were talking about, but didn't remember what it was called.
We arrived at Loew's Royal Pacific Resort and luckily our room was available- so we unloaded the car and headed to the water taxi to take us to Universal Studios. First stop - something to eat - we went to Mel's Diner on the Hollywood Walk. Pretty good burger & fries!
First ride stop- Minion Mayhem! Too cute! It was a 4D ride (much like everything else in Universal) and was really a fun ride.
"It's so fluffy! I'm gonna die!"
Roger, Samantha and Riley rode the Rip It, Rock It, Ride It Roller Coaster (the seats didn't fit me right) and then Samantha went back through the line and rode again by herself!!
Other rides we rode were The Mummy, Twister Alley, Disaster, Transformers and went and watched the animal show.
We went into Diagon Alley and roamed around there.
As we were getting ready to go, Riley wanted to go ride The Mummy again and Samantha and Roger headed back to the Roller Coaster.
It started getting cold - it had been kinda misty raining all day - so we headed back toward the hotel. The boat ride back was pretty cold and the restaurant we could afford was outside seating!!! BRRR!!! We were all cold and tired by the time we got back to the room!
