Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Part of our visit to the two Universal Orlando theme parks was checking out the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. The Harry Potter-themed park is a section of Universal Orlando, and since there are two Universal Parks, the Harry Potter portion is split into two – Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley. I can say that I am a fan of Harry Potter so it was truly magical to see the stuff in the books and movies with my very own eyes. The music playing in the park was really fit for the wizard atmosphere, and a lot of people were dressed in cloaks too!

Universal Studios Florida

Hey guys!! Now I shall share with you our experience during our second day at Universal Orlando! The previous day, we went to Islands of Adventure, one of Universal Orlando’s theme parks. The next day, we went to the second park: Universal Studios Florida! As you remember, we got stranded by rain during our first day at the park but we were glad that the day after, the skies were clear and it was really sunny!! Luckily for us, most of the rides here are 4D simulations so my parents got to ride with me (since they are not really big fans of actual roller coasters and high drops)

Islands of Adventure

After we visited Disney World and NASA the previous days, we went to Universal Orlando. It has two parks: Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios Florida, and we decided to go to Islands of Adventure first. The first attraction that we tried was the Spiderman 4D ride. It was a simulation of us riding a super fast car as we accompanied Spiderman in his adventures.

Exploring Disney World’s EPCOT

During our US trip, we went to 3 out of the 4 Disney World Theme Parks (Click here to read about Magic Kingdom and here for Disney Hollywood Studios), and the last one we went to was EPCOT. EPCOT stands for the ‘Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow’, which means it showcases futuristic landscapes as well as modern and sci-fi attractions. The theme park has two sections: Future World and World Showcase. Future World has the different rides while the World Showcase displays highlights of different countries. (To know more you can watch the video that I made above!!)

Disney Hollywood Studios

The second theme park that we visited in Disney World was Disney Hollywood Studios! The previous day, we went to Magic Kingdom (You can read Parts 1 and 2 of my experience too!), and despite the magical yet exhausting day that we had there, it didn’t stop us from going to another theme park. Disney Hollywood Studios has rides that are similar to the Hollywood Experience, and they also had a lot of new Star Wars attractions that I was hyped about.

From the West to the East

Now that the Vegas part of our trip is done, our next destination was Orlando! I was really looking forward to this place since all the great theme parks such as Disneyworld and Universal Studios are here, and ever since I found out about the tragic incidents that happened in Orlando recently, I felt really disappointed about what happened. It really saddens me that innocent lives would be taken just because they chose to be who they are. We should treat everyone with the same love and respect regardless of gender, race and beliefs. As Lin-Manuel Miranda said in his Tony Awards acceptance speech, “Love is love. It cannot be taken away or swept aside.” However, I still wanted to hold on to that part of Orlando that is bright and happy so I decided to continue with this post.

Hi guys! So apparently August is the most hectic month in school. We had tons of projects and it’s actually our exams this week, but I still decided to update my blog before I continue studying. I know it’s been 3 months already and I haven’t finished my Vacation Diaries (Macau/HK), but better late than never right? So here’s our 2nd day in Hong Kong. And as you can pretty much guess, we went to the happiest place on earth: Disneyland.
