Twenty Must Dos at Universal Orlando Theme Park

Universal Orlando has a lot to do, from nauseating motion simulators, to characters, to nauseating motion simulators, to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, then back to nauseating motion simulators again for good measure.

We recently spent a long weekend at Crystal Mountain Resort & Spa. The resort is nice and certainly has amazing views. However, unlike Timber Ridge in Lake Geneva with lots of options outside of the resort, there are really no restaurants near Crystal Mountain.

LEGOLAND California Theme Park (Eh): The Ultimate Guide

LEGOLAND California is great in theory. Most kids under twelve are LEGO crazed. Boys love Ninjago as much as I love hard seltzer.

Universal Islands of Adventure Attractions

We recently stayed at Universal Orlando Resort. We spent three days hopping between the two theme parks, Universal Studios Florida and Universal Islands of Adventure. Overall, we liked the parks, but the number of motion simulator rides at Universal Studios Florida is ridiculous. Universal Islands of Adventure attractions were much better.
