Universal Studios - Part 3

We spent our third day, at both parks...riding the Hogwarts Express back and forth between two parks (we actually got to the park at 7:00 am again to ride Gringotts for the last time!). The only ride we didn't do that we wanted to do was Terminator!  We got to see shows -Animal Actors,  and Horror Make up show(excellent!!) and actually did two of the Dr. Suess area rides - those are really cute!!  

Here I am going through Platform 9-3/4!
We watched the Celestina Warbeck show.  She is a character in the books only.  She is Mrs. Weasley's favorite singer and she put on one heck of a show with her back up singers and dancers.  
We also caught the tail end of the Frog Choir which I believe is in book 3. 
We did not see the Bauxbutons or Durmstrang show (we saw it in 2010).  
This was our one and only Frozen butterbeer.  There were so many other flavors and choices this time. We didn't have this many choices last time.  Butterbeer was fabulous and next to pear cider, it is my favorite.  

Just some random photos from the parks or our hotel.  

Best vacation!!  If anyone needs any information about the parks, let me know.  It is a great place for both young kids and older kids.  We hardly spent any time in Springfield (the Simpsons area), but the area is huge! They have Moe's bar, Kwik-e-mart, Duff's beer, Lard Boy Donuts (we had one and it was huge and delicious!).  and then the Krustyland ride.  There is so much to do there!  We actually found out that there is a Luau at our hotel.  It is a little pricey, but it looked like it was a lot of fun!!!  We ate at Jakes' Restaurant in our hotel for our last dinner.  It was excellent.  We sat outside and watched the waterfall above and ate French fry nachos.  

Our car came to pick up us up at 8:30 the following morning, so we actually got to sleep in until 7:30!!!
