Love is a universal commodity, Minion popcorn bucket is back in stock, few people and more: Universal Orlando Resort photo op 4/16/22

Greetings from Universal Orlando Resort! It’s a beautiful Saturday and we’re excited to be here, so let’s go and head to Islands of Adventure first.

We stopped to take in the beauty of Islands of Adventure and spotted the cutest baby duckling hanging out near the submarine.

The theme park ducks are a giveaway. We have so much fun watching them in the parks.

Sinister! Poseidon’s Fury is quite hazy in the morning. It may not smell like HHN around here, but it’s still fun to play in the fog.

It’s been a rough start to the day here at Islands of Adventure, with Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure and VelociCoaster experiencing delays.

At Universal Studios Florida, we were surprised to find such low crowds for a holiday weekend.

Wait times around the park were surprisingly low. Transformers was only a 40-minute wait, and Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem was only 45 minutes away.

Good weather and low crowds make the best combination.

The Minion popcorn bucket has been replenished. They seem to sell out fast, so be sure to grab one if you get the chance!

What have we done to deserve such a perfect day in the parks?

Only a 35 minute wait for the Hogwarts Express in the middle of the day? It’s almost unheard of on a Saturday.

A brand new “Love is Universal” collection has been rolled out across the resort. You can see our full guide with prices here.

Thanks for joining us around the parks today. It’s been a busy day, but we’re leaving. Stay tuned for more updates from Universal Orlando Resort and beyond!
