“U.” What the heck am I going to blog about in this A to Z Challenge that starts with U? Doh! Universal Orlando Resort in Florida! Of course, now I’m thinking about “V” for the next post.

Well, this post will be short – I’m traveling again on business meaning I need to catch up on office work after meeting all day with folks. I did sneak over to Universal for a couple of hours tonight for dinner and ride Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey (I have an annual pass.) Plus, I’m dealing with personal “stuff” putting me in a funky place.

Anyway, I hope to get caught up in reading A to Z blogs (and others!) this weekend. (I DO appreciate your comments!)

In the meantime, here are a few snapshots from Universal Orlando Resort and links to my blog posts on the topic. I have to admit, it was wonderful visiting the park by myself. It wasn’t that busy and I was able to walk onto the Harry Potter ride because I was a single rider. That particular attraction has fast pass access for single riders to fill in the holes of couples and parties of three.

  1. … never been and I never think I will go neither. A great post, but not really my thing and maybe I have lost “my young at heart”, been to Disneyland in Paris and Disney World in Anaheim – had a great time but that is all.

  2. I’ve been to Universal many times, and it never gets old. I prefer to visit during the off-season though, when the temperatures and crowds are bearable! 🙂
