There is something for everyone!

My aunt is elderly, so we rented a wheelchair for her while we were there! To rent a wheelchair it's $20 with a $50 deposit. The deposit is not charged to your payment method unless you do not return the chair. The customer service was excellent and treated us with the utmost respect and were very helpful and kind!

Once we entered the park we had to decide what we wanted to do first. My son wanted to ride The Hulk first but unfortunately it was under repair. So we headed to Harry Potter! On the way, we got stopped by my sons favorite hero! Spider-Man!

We had a blast walking around and looking at all the shops! And you can't go to Hogsmeade without getting yourself some ButterBeer! It's a delicious sweet treat that will make your tummy jump for joy! 

When you enter the newest Harry Potter attraction, beware of the dragon above! If your not careful you may get burned by his fire. This mythical creature shoots fire from a top his perch. And don't forget to ride the train! It's a neat little adventure that the kiddos will love!

In the Harry Potter adventure you will find everything you need to enter into Hogwarts Academy! From the wand shop all the way to where you purchase your robes and books, you will find everything you need!

We spent 2 days at Universal Studios Orlando and I have to say that we were unable to get everything done. There is so much that you can do, so many rides to go on and so many adventures to endure that one would need an entire week to be able to accomplish it all! However, our family had a fantastic time and were treated with the utmost respect the entire time we were there. All the characters were extremely kind and respectful to every one of us. The crowds are large but this was one of the best times I ever had with my family!

Here is a list of all the rides and attractions you can find to check off your list the next time you visit Universal Studios Orlando:
