A Celebration of Harry Potter Weekend

By: Rebecca Jones December 14, 2017 For the past few years, the last weekend in January has been where all of those who long to visit Hogwarts and are fascinated with all things in the wizard world gather together at Universal Orlando Resort for a Celebration of Harry Potter.

Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach: A Groovy Resort with a Swell Family Suite

By: Allison Flynn December 12, 2017 I think having parents raised in the 50s and 60s may have contributed to my love of retro things and beach music.

We started by going to Epcot where we went on Soarin’ and GM Test Track. We also squeezed in a quick lunch before taking the monorail to Magic Kingdom. We spent a good portion of the day at Magic Kingdom, however, my “big kids” (ages 10 and 8) were dying to get to Hollywood...
