Short, Short Tips: Universal Studios Florida Mornings

When I am visiting Universal Studios Florida at the Universal Orlando Resort, I like to start my day a little differently than most people!

Instead of hitting Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem or Hollywood Rip, Ride, Rockit, I like to head to the back of the park to Men in Black.

It may seem like the exact opposite of what you should do, but everyone tends to stay up front while the back of the park is emptier.

As you walk past the front of the park you may feel like you are swimming upstream, but it gives you time to see where people are going in the park so you can start thinking of where you would like to head to next.

Then when you are done getting all the ‘bugs’, you can easily head back towards the front of the park or to The Simpsons area of Universal Studios Florida.

We usually end up going towards The Simpsons, because if we are hungry we will eat an early lunch or we will ride and shop before heading to our favorite lunch spot in Universal Studios Florida, Finnegan’s Bar & Grill!

Finding Teachable Moments In the Park: Epcot

When I was younger and we went on family vacations, it was important to my parents that we learned something while we were having fun.

And as we started our family, we made the decision to integrate these teachable moments into our family trips.

I remember my first trip to Epcot in 1986, and all the fun we had talking about what we saw on the rides and the countries we visited in World Showcase. Without a doubt, Epcot was (and still is) my favorite park!

Now that our family lives so close to Walt Disney World, we still keep this tradition alive when we visit Epcot.

I hope that you enjoy this short trip around Epcot’s Future World for some of our family’s favorite Teachable Moments!


I’d love to hear some of your family’s traditions and teachable moments!
