Week Fourteen - Christmas Break

January 03, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Happy New Year everybody!!!  Another year has gone by (so quickly for me) and we now usher in 2016.  Its been a couple weeks since my last blog not because I haven't done much, but because I didn't do a whole lot photographically.  I've been spending time with my wife and daughter taking in some activities that don't really welcome cameras.  One example was the Blue Man Group.  We've been wanting to see this show for years and finally were able to do it right after Christmas.  The theater is located at Universal's Citywalk so there were also plenty of dining options after the show.

I woke up Christmas morning to our neighborhood cloaked in fog.  I managed to grab my camera and jump in the car to get some foggy shots of the trees and neighboring meadow.  Fog is a great dramatic element to most photos and the shots I took that morning did not disappoint.

This is the busiest time of year for the parks and the crowd levels are outrageous!  We made a point to avoid the parks for the week between Christmas and New Year for this very reason.  However, I noticed on Christmas evening that the wait times at the Magic Kingdom were pretty short, so we took a drive over and it was well worth it.  We didn't arrive till around 9pm ( the park was open till 1am that evening) and we were able to basically walk up to most rides!

We kind of took the same approach on New Years day except this time we went to both Universal parks.  The crowd was a bit heavier, but we did manage to ride a few favorites and enjoy a Krustyburger at Moes Tavern!

Ripsaw Falls - Islands of Adventure Men in Black ride - Universal Studios Lombards Landing - Universal Studios Macys Christmas Parade - Universal Studios Thats kind of it in a nutshell.  We have some adventures planned later this week, so stay tuned!
