It was a grey and rainy morning when we arrived at Universal Studios.

Minion Mayhem was sporting an 80 min wait already at 10 am. Most likely because this is the first major attraction when you enter the park.

Opposite Minion Mayhem, the Shrek 4-D attraction did not seem as popular.

Christmas decorations were still up even though we have now entered January.

Revenge of the Mummy was just 10 minutes and is always a fun ride. Recent rumors have started circulating it may not last for much longer.

Beetlejuice’s Graveyard Revue has now closed its doors and walls are now up announcing its replacement attraction “Fast and Furious”.

Similar walls are outside the old home of Disaster.

The weather made walking into Diagon Alley even more authentic.

Knight Bus fans flock to this location.

Escape from Gringotts only had a 30 minute wait.

The queue is as impressive as always and has tons of hidden details all around.

Diagon Alley shops and wand location continues to be immensely popular. No wonder when you see the amount of details have been put into them.

Krustyland recently removed a photo opp for even more midway games.

The E.T. ride is definitely showing its age and may not have much time left in the park.

12511592_10153177202105981_1662177101_n

Back to the Future mania is still strong in the park with this classic photo opp.

Transformers 3D was around a 80-110 minute wait the whole day.

Finnegan’s Bar & Grill is one of the best food options in the park. Sit down meal for fast food prices. Most things on the menu are around $10-$15.

12512095_10153177201900981_828507392_n

The restaurant serves Irish/English classics such as fish and chips, seafood pie and bangers and mash.

    Revenge of the Mummy is a fantastic ride and I really hope those rumors are not true!
