Recap Day 1 | Recap Day 2  

 

Last week my family and I were treated to an all-expenses paid week-long trip to Universal Orlando. We had the most amazing time spending time together as a family, meeting other families, and taking in all the sights, attractions, and food Universal Orlando has to offer. If you saw tweets with the hashtag #UORFamily, this will explain it. 

Monday was a travel day for most of the families. We were graciously put up at the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel. It is designed and modeled after Portofino, Italy and has a quaint Italian appeal from the boats floating in the bay to the outdoor cafes. We recommend Sal's for quick meals 

 

My husband and I decided to surprise our daughters. For weeks they thought they were going to see Grandmommy. Little did they know they were on their way to Orlando for an epic week of fun and surprises at Universal Studios.

Goodies we found in our room including Harry Potter wands and journal, hats, and bags. 

 

Lots more goodies. Perfect for hungry families who have
been traveling all day!

Wow, this looks like an amazing time. I went to Universal Studios as a kid and it was one of my best vacations ever.

It sounds amazing! We are going in September! ;-)

 

Were they disappointed not to see Grandmommy or did they get over it? ;-)
