Universal Studios Hollywood VIP Experience Part III: Review & Character Interactions

Studio Tour I’m not a huge movie buff–if you’ve read my movie review posts then you know this. As a result, the studio tour is not always my favorite part of the park. Don’t get me wrong–I enjoy just about everything about the park, but I don’t go for the studio tour. Unfortunately, this isContinue reading “Universal Studios Hollywood VIP Experience Part III: Review & Character Interactions”

Universal Studios Hollywood Updates

The Mummy’s Revenge For those of you that don’t know, the Mummy’s Revenge is currently closed for refurbishment and has been since early to mid-January. (It was closed when I went to Universal on January 12th). However, when I was there on January 26, I was informed that they would be reopening on February 4th!Continue reading “Universal Studios Hollywood Updates”

Before the Universal Studios VIP Tour

When I signed up for the Universal Studios VIP Tour, I was informed that there were a lot of opportunities for photos, and while this was true, it focused on some things I was either unfamiliar with or just slightly less interested in because it was outside my niche. But, I will share them withContinue reading “Before the Universal Studios VIP Tour”

Universal Studios Hollywood VIP Tour 2

After lunch, the Universal Studios VIP tour focused on the rides. We rode Jurassic World and Transformers before lunch, and after lunch, we went to see Water World. I touch on Waterworld in the video above, but there are some things that didn’t make it into the video. I didn’t want to see it. Let’sContinue reading “Universal Studios Hollywood VIP Tour 2”

Universal Studios Hollywood Ride Rankings-based on 1/12/22 Trip

A couple of things before I get into the rankings… First, these are based on my day at Universal Studios Hollywood on 1/12/22, and so, they were influenced by things that happened that particular day (like me feeling sick, which almost never happens. I go to amusement parks multiple times a year, and I’ve beenContinue reading “Universal Studios Hollywood Ride Rankings-based on 1/12/22 Trip”

Universal Studios Hollywood VIP Tour Part 1

While I had planned to go on the Universal Studios Hollywood VIP Tour at some point this year, I hadn’t planned to go on it just yet. However, one of the employees was going around to try to upgrade people as I waited to be let into the park. I made eye contact. And ifContinue reading “Universal Studios Hollywood VIP Tour Part 1”

My Christmas Eve 2021 Universal Experience: Universal’s Lower Lot

After riding the Simpsons ride, I headed down to Universal’s lower lot. I was honestly disappointed because the single rider lines were all closed on the lower lot. This meant a longer wait time than usual, although for Jurassic World and The Mummy’s Revenge, it was only about 20 minutes. For Transformers, I almost walkedContinue reading “My Christmas Eve 2021 Universal Experience: Universal’s Lower Lot”

Christmas Eve Universal Studios Experience: Lunch, Studio Tour, & Springfield

Next on my Christmas Eve Universal Studios Experience: After Kung Fu Panda, Pets Off the Leash, & Minion Mayhem, I stopped for a quick lunch at one of the nearby eateries, before heading over to the Studio Tour.

My Christmas Eve Universal Experience: Hogsmeade

Going to an amusement park on Christmas Eve has become a tradition for me. And, although I don’t go every year, I try to go when I can. This year I chose to have a Christmas Eve Universal Experience in Hollywood. Harry Potter & the Forbidden Journey I started my Christmas Eve Universal Experience inContinue reading “My Christmas Eve Universal Experience: Hogsmeade”

Spending Christmas Alone

Christmas is always a little bitter sweet for me. I’m not close with my family, and I don’t want to intrude on my friends’ holidays. What I’ve learned though, is that it’s important to make the holidays my own. And it’s important to celebrate them in a way that makes me happy–even if that meansContinue reading “Spending Christmas Alone”
