Raptor Experience

DSC06475 (2)

On one of our last trips to Universal Orlando, we were lucky enough to be able to have our own experience with a Raptor. It was a lot of fun and the way everything was set up was interesting. This was a little while ago so I’m sure they have worked out a better way to have this experience.

Toothsome Chocolate Factory & Savory Feast Kitchen- Review

20161029_135850.jpg

The Toothsome Chocolate Factory & Savory Feast Kitchen is one of Universal Studios Orlando’s newest additions. Not only is it a fun and exciting place to eat but it also provides a great place to stop just to get a glimpse at all the yummy deserts that they serve.

Toothsome offers 2 great options: sit and dine in or order a desert to go. Of course it’s all so delicous that we had to try both, on different days of course!

Our favorite Youtubers!

We thought that we would use a post as a way to share our favorite Youtubers. We follow these people because they reside in Orlando and also have annual passes to Universal Studios and Disney World. They often take trips to the parks and share their experiences through their Youtube channels.

We have found their videos extremely helpful because they basically keep us up to date with all things Universal and Disney. For us, it’s difficult to be truly up to date because we live in New England.

Here are the 2 that we follow regularly.

TheTimTracker-  Tim and Jenn are a fun couple that seem to love all things Disney and Universal Studios. They try to regularly visit the parks and share their experiences on their Youtube channel. We have followed them for a few years now and have found their tips and recommendations to be so helpful. They are the folks that gave us the idea to try 4 Rivers Smokehouse Restaurant and we were not disappointed. We are actually still dreaming about their food! Below is one of their videos of visiting The Wizarding World of Harry Potter!

View From the Cheap Seats– Kyle, Mary and Jessie are a great family that often visit the Disney and Universal Parks. Their interests seem to be pretty similar to ours so we love checking out their vlogs. We actually found their channel from TheTimTracker. They also live in Orlando and try to show as much about the parks as they can. They enjoy doing lots of other things than just the parks. We enjoy watching them because they also show us what is going on around Orlando. They love Star Wars and we hope we might be able to bump into them during Star Wars Weekend. They also have their own website: View From the Cheap Seats. Below is a video of their adventure to Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim California.

We hope that if you intend to visit the parks or Orlando that you check these vloggers out. We have found their recommendations to be extremely helpful. If you have no plans to visit you should still check out their channels and like us live vicariously through them!
