here on our YouTube channel), drive through Wisteria Lane, be saved by King Kong and run from Shaw with the crew of Fast and Furious. Definitely don't miss the Studio Tour.
From Shrek 4D you can see the towering peaks of Hogsmeade but don't let that make you skip it. The story continues and you can be a part of it in a theater fully immersed in the tale. The waiting area to get in is just as fun so take the time to look around. Your kids and the kid in you will love it. You can also meet up with some fun characters like the cast of Shrek, SpongeBob Square Pants, Minions, Scooby Doo, the Transformers and Raptors if you dare. Marilyn Monroe and Lucille Ball walk the streets here with Dracula, Beetleguise and Frankenstein. If its a hot day you can cool off in the splash pad areas of the park or in the attached City Walk.
You can become a minion working for Gru in Minion Mayhem or the young ones can play in the Super Silly Fun Land. Bring them a change of clothes because the fun land is a wet kind of fun. You can ring the doorbells of the homes down the street where you will hear the sounds of minions (Experience it here) and eat banana themed snacks and Machos Nachos at Gru's Lab Cafe. My kids love love love the Animal Actors show but my favorite show is the Special Effects show. The Water World show is really cool but its behind a fence. I'm not sure if they are fixing it up or if it is going away to make room for a new attraction.
From eating a giant doughnut at Lard Lad's to experiencing a Butterbeer at the Three Broomsticks, you can taste your way through the shows as well. Stop by Jurassic Cafe or Krusty Burger if you want a simple burger. The Three Broomsticks has traditional English foods. You can get a snack at Starbucks, Cinnabon, Ben and Jerry's, Panda Express or a variety of snack shacks through out the park. The turkey legs are huge and the smell sneaks up on your from time time. You can eat as simple or as fancy as you want here. And if you cant find anything in the park you can visit the City Walk to pick from all they have to offer. That is where you will find It's Sugar (Experience it Here) if you are looking to get a major sugar fix. You can also get Subway, a hot dog from Pinks or sit down in one of their restaurant choices.
Just a tip, when you get there you can buy a souvenir cup that gives you refills for $.99 for the day. After three refills it has saved you money if you choose the cheaper of the options. This Minion sipper is adorable but pass it up for the simple blue one. The sipper was a struggle to drink from reminiscent of a sippy cup of a toddler but it wasn't as light and easy to get around. We purchased a strap to help tote it about for an extra $2.99 and it bounced off our belly with every step. I'm not sure drinks are meant to be wore around your neck. At $16.99 it is a super cute desk decoration. The simple blue cup is $8.99. It has a handle you can use to attach to the strap of your bags and a great straw that makes drinking from it simple.
