Trip Report - Part 3!

Our final stop was at Universal Studios, and more specifically, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! Truthfully, that's all we need to see and do at Universal, so we spent 99% of our day wandering between Hogwarts and Diagon Alley - and it was wonderful! 

Now you can actually ride the train between Hogsmeade and King's Cross!
We had our very own compartment, too.

Ivy reported to school like a good first year.
(Please note the "Florida hair" - so humid! : ))

Stopped by for a treat.

... and don't forget the Butterbeer and Pumpkin Juice!

Chatted with the Knight Bus driver.

Found the vanishing cabinet at Borgin and Burkes in Knockturn Alley.

One more Butterbeer.

The only two non-HP rides we rode were The Simpsons and this one.
"E.T." was Georgia's first movie in a theatre, and it holds a special place in our hearts.
We can highly recommend our hotel, which is part of the Universal Orlando resort - the Cabana Bay Beach Resort. It's very reasonable, convenient, and very theme-y! It was like stepping back in time to the early 60s - so cool! Check out the link for more info, but here's the lobby and our room. Love the Georgia colors!

All in all, we had a fabulous trip, and we are so grateful for the time we got to spend together just having FUN. We're already looking forward to our next adventure, but it's also nice to be home for a while. We've got a lot coming up in the next few months, so please check back often. We hope y'all are enjoying a happy new year so far, and thanks as always for keeping our girl on your minds!

Why? Because we LOVE you!
