UNIVERSAL STUDIOS HOLLYWOOD & CITY WALK

DAY 1

I wanted to get the most out of my trip to Universal Studios Hollywood, so I checked in at the “Hotel of the Stars”, Sheraton Universal Hotel for 2 nights. The hotel has absolutely phenomenal service at every level. The staff went out of the way to help my family and make them feel at home. Book a room here!

Sheraton Universal Hotel address:

333 Universal Hollywood Drive, Universal City, CA 91608

Sheraton offers a back and forth shuttle bus to the City Walk and the Universal Studios. So, that’s that. No sweat!

Learning how to fly was the highlight of my trip. That’s right. Fly! In style. Upon arrival at the City Walk though, my parents and I were hungry. So, we ate at Panda Express (my Dad’s favorite fast food chain I presume). Here’s a list of other food chains and restaurants.

All of a sudden, while strolling around the City Walk, I spotted Mario Lopez filming for Extra. I grew up watching Jabbawockeez on America’s Best Dance Crew, so I for sure knew it was Mario Lopez! Not wanting to disturb his work flow, I moved on.

Learning how to fly was incredible. It’s an experience I’ll never forget. It was my first time learning and I felt like I was in safe hands. Before flying, I paid $59.95 for 2 flights and I went through a pre-flight training session, received all the necessary flight gear (suit, helment, goggles), friendly instructions from a certified flight guide, and a personalized post-flight certificate. Yay! I’m officially a bird. Check here for iFly’s different packages!

After flying, I ended my day with watching a movie at AMC Universal CityWalk 19. The Lego Batman Movie. I honestly did not expect that movie to be any funnier than what I’ve heard. The small quirks and humor was hilarious. My favorite scene was when Batman tried to sneak in Superman’s mansion. Too cute to even describe.
