It’s no secret that I love theme parks. A few years back, before we had kids, and to celebrate my hubby’s graduation from college, we took a trip to Orlando. It is to date, one of the absolute funnest vacations we have ever taken. We were bone tired at the end of each night, from all of the fun we were having exploring Orlando and the Florida coast.
It’s also the first time I fell in love with a thrill ride and a theme park. The minute we stepped inside Universal Orlando’s Islands of Adventure, I fell in love. It is absolutely the best theme park I have ever visited. There is fun at every corner and my favorite ride of all time, The Amazing Adventures of Spider Man, calls it home. We were there during the holidays and there really couldn’t be a better time to visit. I remember getting soaked at Dudley Do-Right’s Ripsaw Falls with my hubby, and when i’m talking soaking, we were drenched! We were wet as all can be and laughed all the way to our hotel room. We had a blast and didn’t want our day or vacation to end. I really can’t wait to do it again, except this time, with our two kiddos, who I know would have the time of their lives!
