My Adventure at Universal Studios

Entrance On my second day in Orlando, June 30th, 2021, we went to have fun at Universal Studios Islands of Adventure ( https://www.universalorlando.com ). We got there around 10:30 am and I thought the parking was really organized, because there were instructions and staff helping the cars to park and the spaces were filling out in sequence, so you don’t have to get crazy looking for a spot. Since we only had the snack from the hotel, we decided to have brunch at Panda Express. There were different restaurant options at Universal, including Bigfire, Antojitos Authentic Mexican Food, Cowfish, Hard Rock Cafe, and others.                        Universal Orlando Resort Entrance         On the way to Islands of Adventure Park/Rides After eating, we started walking in the direction of the Islands of Adventure park.

Eight Hours in Orlando

It was July 2017 when I bought my tickets to visit my family in Brazil during the winter break. My classes would be done in the first week of December, so I wanted to buy the tickets at a reasonable price as soon as possible. I would have a layover of eight hours in Florida, but I didn't pay attention to the airport, so I thought it was Miami since I've been there all the time between my flights from Brazil to Minnesota and vice versa. At the end of November, I wanted to check my layovers to let my mom know about everything, and I realized I was actually going to Orlando. So I searched how far would be the airport from Disney World, and it would range from 20 to 25 minutes. I realized I had my perfect chance to get to see Disney World, and after talking to my mom about it, she was afraid I would not have enough time to enjoy the park and catch my flight, but I convinced her and bought my ticket online.
