Final Day in Florida: Universal Studios Adventure & Hogwarts

Couple things, why the fuck did they change the recipe of the butterbeer, it tasted like garbage the day we went. That is my main complaint for the entire day at Universal, it had me so mind boggled. The foam on top was shitty as well and not that candy flavor. Bullshit. Anyways, let’s begin!

Here we go! The famous Universal people movers, gotta love them. Wish Disney would implement some cool ones.

 

Got dinner reservations here, can’t wait. Already hungry.

Ahh, I missed my favorite park.

Some trivia, I read there was a dragon on the entrance because it was suppose to be the Beastly Kingdom with dragons?! There really is a dragon on the entrance of the park. To Cool.

Epcot Flower & Garden Festival 2018 – Gluten Free Style

WDW Trip Report Day 3: We visit the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival! Was a lot like the Food & Wine Festival except the fact they had a bunch more flowers and topiaries at every turn. The merchandise was eh okay but still can’t find a 2018 poster, GRR! However, check out the adventure below. Also had dinner at Akershus House in Norway. The F&G Festival takes place every year sometime between Feb 28th-May 28th with several events, presentations all on flower & garden topics.

Love seeing the monorail, even before entering EPCOT!

We are IN! We always opt to take the photo at the end of the night, a lot more scenic to have a family photo at night.

Disney World 2018 Trip Report Day 1: Flight + Springs

Finally the countdown is over and we get to go back to Disney World! The most magical place on Earth. But I think the waiting part is part of the magical journey. I will be posting daily blogs of our trip report and updating. Today we flew in from Little Rock and met up with the rest of our family then checked into our “Magical Vacation Home” and then decided to hit up Disney Springs.

I will review each aspect including the Magical Home part as well! So stick along this week and feel free to ask any questions. There will be a lot of photos and I’ll put some explanations at the bottom. I wanted to do a seperate post on reviewing the Magical Vacation Homes experience but I think I’ll just leave feedback under each photo.

We opted to fly first class on the way their since it usually is a good deal compared to economy. Our plane got upgraded so we got lie flat seats all the way from Little Rock, was an awesome experience and a excellent start.

Disneyland Trip Day 2: Disneyland! Gluten Free Adventures

very time I hit up Disney World I’ve always thought about what Disneyland was like since I forgot what it was like since it’s been so long since I went. I went when I was 12 years old and hardly remember anything.

Got dropped off by our Uber, guess we walk from here (don’t drive, uber!)

I have to say hands down after visiting, Disneyland is way better than Florida’s Magic Kingdom, that is for sure. It’s real small, quaint and charming with a light sense of magic. Now Disney World gives you the magic for sure, Disneyland was a little hard to get into since it’s in the middle of the hustle and bustle of everything California.

Look’s like it’s going to be a busy ass day! (September 12th, 2017)

The entrance isn’t what I remember but it’s just as amazing as could imagine.

Disneyland Trip Day 1: Flight In + California Adventure

So I’ve been dreaming of going to Disneyland since I went when I was like 11 and after going to Disney World so many times, it has became a reality! (wishes). We flew first class on United which was fucking amazing and worth it for the 4 hour journey.

First thing we did? Grab in and out burger. I’ll try to make this a 3 blog post series but we did a lot that week including the San Diego Zoo, so hopefully I can fit it all. Tag along.

Once you fly first you don’t go back. So true.

I mean when in rome… we had to right? They didn’t have any gluten free buns but they did have a lettuce wrap option. However the food tasted like cold plastic microwaved garbage. I also hate Whataburger but it was better than this shit.

Loaded the fuck up on some burgers for dinner after our flight

Hit read more to continue on this California Adventure…

WDW DAY 6: Last day excursion at Hollywood Studios

Beautiful, slightly hot day.

It’s finally come to our last day in Florida on our 2016 adventure to Disney World, Universal Studios and always the “sad” day, however we will return soon and the magical adventures will once again come! This is also a super pumped day for me because we finally were able to make a reservation at 50’s Prime Time Cafe which is literally known as one of the best gluten free restaurants in all of Orlando, and it turned out to be awesome. This park should also charge half price, literally 80% of the park is under construction such an eye sore right now, pathetic D, lower the price to Hollywood.

Always wanted to know about this statue so I did some research this time.

As you make your way down Hollywood Boulevard, towards the Sorcerer’s Hat, on your left you will find a bronzed statue of a cameraman working a movie camera.

Underneath the statue is a sign with a quote, “Movies are a medium of expression like a symphony orchestra.. or a painter’s brush or canvas” -Walt Disney.  Why is this life sized statue there and who is it?

The statue was made by Aldo and Andrea Favilli in 1995.  Andrea Favilli was a Disney Imaginner, who joined Imagineering in 1987 as a laead concept designer.  Favilli worked on a number of projects in Disneyland, the Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Typhoon Lagoon, Disney Island, Pleasure Island, the Animal Kingdom, Tokyo Disneyland and Disneyland Paris.

The statue itself is based on the original statue that Andrea made with his father that is located in Hollywood across from the Warner Brothers Studio in Burbank.   Interestingly enough, the original statue was commissioned by Roy E. Disney and Shamrock Holdings, which was meant to be a piece of art that celebrated the art of film making.

The man in the statue is a generic film maker, not based on anyone per se.  Imagineers had a replica built at the Studios since the statue’s message of honoring film making fit in perfectly with the theme park.

WDW Day 5: Universal Studios & Harry Potter

Looks like a cat to me.

Day 5 WDW: Well not really WDW but still all in the same universe of sorts, we wanted to come specifically to check out Diagon Alley since last time the park was closing and we didn’t even discover it until by accident since it’s hidden! Crazy I know but finally we made it so heres some photos of our adventure! I’m not sure if it was because of the people or weather or park in general but this time around Universal Orlando seemed down right “ghetto” to me in a way.. I don’t know why.. it seems they have lost their class.

Famous Earth at the entry way!

Not sure why we wanted to check this place out, but none the less Hello Kitty was there. Their marketing team is whack trying to say Hello Kitty is not a fucking cat, what’s wrong with chu?
