For the third day of our fantastic trip, we decided to go to Islands of Adventure, Universal Studios, and the Halloween Horror Night!! Here are the photos from all of our fun at Islands of Adventure.

As you can see, I decided to dress up as a Panda today!! I wore an all black outfit with black and white accessories. The finishing touches were the Panda hat and Panda ring. I was so happy to be a Panda for a day :)

We first walked through the Dr. Seuss area of the park (photos above) which is all wacky and colorful (love it!). And then we walked through The Lost Continent area, which is pretty cool looking as well (who am I kidding, EVERYTHING looks cool in this park... haha).

Then we finally reached my all time favorite area of the entire park: the Harry Potter area! I am a huuuuuuuuuggee Harry Potter fan, so walking through the streets of Hogsmeade looking at wands, potions, owls, and robes is like a dream come true for me.

The Hogwarts Castle is just magnificent, as well as the cool ride inside of it. My heart was pumping with excitement just by looking at the castle from a distance.

We also took the time to drink some Butterbeer, which is a famous delicious non-alcoholic drink from the Harry Potter books/movies. It is deeeeeeeeeeeelish! It sort of tastes like a butterscotch soda, if you can imagine that :)

We then visited the aaaaahhhh-mazing Harry Potter themed Candy Store! This store has the coolest most wackiest candies. My favorites where definitely the Chocolate Frogs (famous from the first Harry Potter movie) and the Every Flavor Jelly Beans (which I will talk more about later).

We then walked to the Jurassic Park area! Apart from the fun rides, we also enjoyed being silly with hats and photo-booths in this area.

We quickly breezed through the Toon Laggon area, which is awesomely decorated with colorful cartoon characters!

Oct 28 (27)  

Then we hit the most exciting area: Marvel! This is filled with roller coasters and exciting rides. My favorite of the area is The Hulk roller coaster!

If you take a closer look, you can see us!!

See us there? From left to right, you can see my sister, me, my boyfriend, and my brother (who is the guy waving his hand at the camera). Cool huh?

By that time, we were starving! We decided to indulge on some delicious Turkey Legs... yum yum.

Oct 28 (30)  

After filling our bellies, we decided to walk over to Universal Studios (a 5-10 minute walk). To entertain ourselves, we decided to play a little game we call Jelly Bean Roulette.

For those of you who don't know, there is a famous candy from the Harry Potter series called Bertie Botts Every Flavour Beans. Its basically a bag of Jelly Beans that has some yummy flavors (like watermelon, lemon, and banana) and some NOT so yummy flavors (like Dirt Worm, Soap, and Grass). 

Oct 28 (31)  

The game is for each of us to randomly grab a jelly bean, eat it, and then film our reactions. If we got a good one, than our faces where happy; if we got a bad one... well, the videos are quite funny, that is all I can say!  

The very first jelly bean I got was a rotten egg flavor (YUCK!), and my brother or sister I believe got an earwax flavored bean... hahaha. It was a very funny game.

Stay tuned guys! Next up is the Halloween Horror Night... you wont wanna miss the cool makeup that we had done that day. Hope you are all enjoying these photos from our trip :)

  17. Hello Jilma!! I could have SWORN that I already answered this sweet comment of yours, but I guess I didn't? So sorry about that. To answer your question, the Harry Potter butterbeer tastes sort of like a butterscotch soda float. So it has like a caramel taste to it, and it has some creamy espuma on the top. You should taste it sometime!
