    I feel the same exact way about ET!!!! I have such fond memories from my family trips as a kid and THAT SMELL. It makes me so happy. I will be devastated if/when they get rid of it.

    The character breakfast looks so fun! There were a ton of characters there, too!

    I had no interest in Harry Potter until visiting Universal either. I'll admit, I've still only seen (most of) the movies, but I really did gain a new appreciation for it because of our trip.

    The Jurassic Park boat ride is fantastic.. Probably one of my favorite rides there! So unexpected and so much fun!

    Seussland :inlove: I absolutely love walking around there!

    Just wanted to pop on quickly to say thank you for all the well wishes. When I mentioned I received a call with bad news, I didn't expect that. So, thank you!

    The bad news was that my father had passed away very suddenly and unexpectedly. I am back home now, after having to spend nearly a week up in Buffalo, NY (where my father lived) and catching up. I promise I will finish out this report as soon as I can. There isn't much left to share anyway but I can't just leave it where I did of course! :)

    Please accept my condolences on the loss of your father. My mother passed away after a very brief, and unexpected, illness in July 2016. I'm so sorry for what you're going through :(

    Just a quick update...
    There was only a couple hours left to the last day I posted so I think I'm ok just leaving this report where it is. The long and short of it was we loved Universal! We got to do pretty much everything we had hoped and can't wait to return.

    All that said - as you can see - Photobucket has changed things and ultimately screwed up my report (and I'm sure every other one I've posted here to date). I'm going to look into other options and get these updated ASAP to share the photos properly!
