Every year, Universal Studios at Orlando has special events during August and September as appreciation to annual pass holders (UOAP) either offering special discounts at their hotels, special merchandise , collectable pins, gifts, etc but one than all annual pass holders wait every year is the special nights, when Universal close their doors early and open the park just for us for 3 hours!
They have special stuff like this year they had a game where we have to find magnets and exchange them for presents, like mugs, pins, gift certificates, etc. The other cool thing about it was than they had all the Marvel Characters this year for us to take pictures with them!!!
This year the event was made at Island of Adventure and everything was ope, even the Harry Potter area (normally this area is closed for this kind of events). We were able to ride everything in about an hour, and even had time to search for the magnets without a luck. We were so lucky than when we went to ride Jurassic Park nobody was in the car, then thats why we have to buy that picture for sure!!!
I know, it is still summer, too early to think about Halloween but I can't help it, Universal Studios just sent us this email today and we signed for it, let see what experience they are bringing this year. After I signed (surrendered) for this experience on the email I became a soul collector and I got a number and I received 3 wallpapers as a first reward, they asked for the address to send something, lets wait and see, I am sooo excited!!! And very ready for this year's Halloween Horror Nights experience!
We went to Pandora the first opening week to know the new world of Avatar at Disney Animal Kingdom, I want to say than it was a beautiful experience after months of waiting to be able to see it!
The first thing we do is go to one of the rides name: "Avatar Flight of Passage" and it was incredible, this ride is about a first-person journey over the landscape of Pandora on the back of a banshee. The experience was awesome, you can feel the breath of the banshee, how his winds are moving and the wind on your face, can feel the water, and it is a perfect experience.
The second experience was to go to the other Pandora's ride: "Na'vi River Journey" were you ride a boat and can sail down a mystical Pandoran river hidden within the bioluminescent rainforest while the Na'vi Shaman of songs summons you further.
Later, we went to the famous store called: "Windtraders" where you can ether create your own Avatar or adopt a baby banshee, buy other souvenirs like the native Na'vi jewelry, collectible pins, limited edition Magic bands, clothes, and more.
Then while waiting for our avatar to be ready, we went to have lunch at "Satu'li Canteen which is the main dining establishiment for travelers in the Valley of Mo'ara. This restaurant features a beautiful museum-qaulity dinning room focused on Na'vi art and cultural items.
Later during the evening, we stoped at "Pongu Pongu" and enjoyed their famous drink called "Night Blossom" which is a Non-Alcholic Specialty Beverage based on a mixture of Limeade with Apple and Desert Pear flavors topped with Passion Fruit Boba Balls, it is sooo delicious.
we really have a very fun day on Pandora and I invited you to watch my video about this experience, Thanks for reading.
