Happy Thursday and welcome to our second photo tour of Universal Orlando Resort. On Tuesday we looked at Universal Studios Florida and today we're going to hop on the Hogwarts Express and take a look at Islands of Adventure.
So much new fun stuff at this park and Matt has captured it all. Enjoy!!

Welcome to Islands of Adventure
In a world of RunDisney races (even one held last weekend in Orlando) sometimes you just want to do something a bit different, and less crowded.
So with that in mind Renée took on the Universal Orlando Fun Run last weekend which from the looks of it gave the runners a pretty empty course through the two Universal Orlando parks. Check out all the fun times.

Why are we at Universal before the sun is up?
I love Disney races but this weekend we're skipping those for something different instead, the UO Fun Run!
The UO Fun Run took us through both theme parks, starting with Universal Studios.
On to Islands of Adventure at Universal Orlando where we took a lap around the entire park.
And the finish line was at CityWalk near Hard Rock Cafe.
More from the finish line at the UO Fun Run at Universal Orlando . Great race!
We were greeted by some minions after crossing the finish line.
Really enjoyed starting my day with the UO Fun Run. Thanks Universal Orlando for a great morning!
Happy Monday, we hope you all had a great weekend and that you are energized and ready to take on the week (eh, who are we kidding).
But we've got some great updates from FL this week courtesy of Renée that will hopefully help the work week go by a bit easier. First up is a great update from Islands of Adventure where we take a look at Reign of Kong and Hulk.

Hulk coaster is almost back, with some construction still going on at the base.
Hulk is looking great! Can't wait to ride it again soon!
Drinking a frozen butterbeer at Hogsmeade on the east coast!
Thanks again to Renée for another amazing update from FL. Tomorrow we'll be back at Universal Orlando Resort with a trip over to Universal Studios and a look at the new Fallon Attraction, Fast and Furious Supercharged and Mardis Gras.
