What a mad morning! We were raring to go at 8am, only to discover that Islands of Adventure didn’t actually open until 9am. At least the sister theme park opened an hour earlier, so we could power-walk over for an hour of fun before our morning properly began. We managed to get on every ride we wanted before we even stopped for lunch. Yes, we were two sisters on a mission.

Watch our exploits in today’s vlog and then read on for my tips and tricks.

This week has gone so quickly and it’s already time for my second Florida vlog. This is when it gets exciting. Gone are the long hours of travelling and it’s finally time for the fun to begin.

It was a jam-packed first day with early entry at Universal, Panda Express for lunch, a thorough exploration of the two pools at Cabana Bay, and a trip to the Florida Mall. No wonder we were tired at the end.

Have a watch of the vlog and then read the rest of this blog for the details. Let me know what you think!

In late June, I went to see the eighth ever preview performance of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts 1 and 2. This was after a lot of stress and waiting in an online queue of 20,000 people to secure tickets – any tickets – and my sister managed to pull it off. It was an amazing few nights at the theatre, and now I can’t wait to share my experience with you.

Don’t worry. I got two free badges that say I have to #KeepTheSecrets, and I definitely will. You won’t be finding any key plot points here, but I will share my overall impressions (I’ll also warn you before saying anything other than ‘it was amazing’).

Wands at the ready, and let’s go.
