Continuing from my previous post on Disney World – Animal kingdom park, which am sure you have loved it, on this weekend travel post we are portraying Universal Studios through our lens. Universal studio is very fascinating, the buildings, the streets, the towns all modeled after their famous movies is worth seeing, worth visiting and we spent little over half a day there.
For the shrimp lovers, Bubba Gump shrimps has their restaurant right there near the entrance to the park. Food is undoubtedly good but what catches our eye is this –

and soon the Honeydukes (they have some chocolate frogs for you ) ; Dervish and Banges ; Filch’s emporium of confiscated goods ; Owl Post ; Zonko’s and Three Broomstick restaurant appears.
Believe me or not, the picture on the wall moves, inside the forbidden journey ride where you passed through the gates of Hogwarts, the dungeon depicts the talking portraits, Dark Arts classrooms, Sorting Hat ! Even if you are scared to death, you must go on this unless you have some health or age restrictions . This is one amusing experience, no words to express how it was, one can only feel it. And you will love it, every bit of it.
Universal Studio has used lots of props in their theme park. Some of them are really interesting, amusing and cute.
Little Red Fire Brigade at the corner !

> Do not miss Despicable Me Minions, it is utterly good ! And revenge of the Mummy, you will enjoy it. Do not miss this.
Disaster is good but not like the above ones. Shrek is little old style but kids may love it.
Poseidon fury show with special effects is also worth seeing.
Have a great weekend !
