In the comment section on the previous post I was asked about the ticketing situation. This is what we did, we bought a 2-day 2-park ticket. Universal was running a prommotion that time where you get the third day free if you purchase 2-day ticket. Now we needed to purchase a multiple park ticket to hit both Diagon Alley (which was on Universal Studios) and Hogsmeade (on Universal's Island of Adventures). I believe we paid less than $200.
Now I believe we hit every single ride, except the big roller coaster. Even the 14-year-old did not want to touch the massive roller coaster, thank heavens for small miracles.
So to continue with the photos:
While the group decides where to go first - the 14-year-old and the 8-year-old naturally have opposing ideas where that would be - I was happy clicking to document the moment.
To be perfectly honest, I have enjoyed this trip more than I thought I would, despite the suffocating heat and humidity and the constant need to drink and pee alternately. It was something I would happily repeat - in the winter time.
