Universal Studios Orlando – Islands of Adventure

It was freaking hot and we didn’t bring any shades for the summer tour. We managed to buy two caps for ourselves at the nearby 24-hour shop. Warren reminded us that there would be security at the park entrance and we need to queue up for security check if we brought along any bags. […]
