Day 6, part 2: Universal Studios (again) and our Disney resort
|Rip Ride Rockit: Too much fun to|
choose your own soundtrack
|This ride stretches the length of Universal Studios. Ryan and |
I had a blast singing "I Will Survive" the whole way.
|As promised, we rode The Mummy again |
so Ryan could join us this time.
|Outside that ride we found|
this really tall dude.
|Make that a scary tall Egyptian dude!|
|Blues Brothers show|
|The Simpsons' RV (next to autograph area)|
|Barney, a real blast from the past|
|But of course, Ryan bought a donut|
at the Kwik-E-Mart next to the Simpsons
Ride (Oooooh! Doooooonut!)
|This time technical difficulties didn't get in our way!|
What a fun motion simulator ride! Super funny and
just perfect for fans of the series like us.
|The Creature from the Black Lagoon|
followed us from New Orleans, I guess.
|Closest I've been to San Francisco|
We enjoyed the Beetlejuice show, in spite of the cheesy monsters-as-rockers theme:
We also made a super quick visit to the Lucy tribute, much as we did back in '06.
|Model of the I Love Lucy set|
|Making a Lucy penny|
(I was just a little obsessed
with souvenir pennies.)
|Because we missed our exit (my failure as a |
navigator), we got to see the big sign twice!
|Our room! I wish all hotel rooms had ceiling fans like this.|
|And what a treat to have a corner room with the extra window.|
|Double sinks! Some of the Port Orleans rooms have|
pedestal sinks, but I was glad to have the counter space.
Oh, yeah. This works for us!
