universal studios day 1 - universal studios florida


ok so - two days ago, 6/20/2023, i went to universal studios florida. (islands of adventure part coming soon!) here's what i did, and reccomend:

first thing when i got there, i went and waited for the minion mayhem ride, and boy! that was a fun ride. it's not that intense - if i say so myself. (ignore my thoughts though im just a student lol) and then we went on ripride rock it, and that was actually the first fast ride i went on. then, we walked down to new and san fransisco area, where we ate (finnegans bar and grill), and it was really good! the only thing i have to complain about are the fries - i don't like those weird, bulky fries (i would learn later on they serve them UNIVERSALLY!!! haha lol see what i did there) anyway, then we went to diagon alley, and got wands! (not at ollivanders, unfortunately.) here's what i rated the butterbeer btw:
  1. normal butterbeer - 10/10 can't go wrong with the classic
  2. frozen butterbeer - 7/10 this was not as good as the original.
so yeah, then after we went to diagon alley, (see the list of rides) we went to the simpsons land, and waited in line for the big krustyland ride, and unfortunately, it had to go through maintenance, so we didn't get to ride it. although, the krustyland attendant gave us fast past tickets. i got the big donut - and i'm going to be real. it was gross. so instead, i got twist ice cream, which was the best i've ever had in my whole life. so the we went to the spongebob store - and that was the coolest store ever!!! to bad i didn't get to see squidward... so then we left afterthat, because we were done after that. we didn't go to Woody Woodpecker's KidZoneā„¢ because it was closed for renovation. dang. bye
