Most people who know the Bellomo family know that we are Disney fanatics through and through. We have been blessed to be able to go to Disney frequently and have been able to share that with our daughter DeAnna. In fact, my wife even has a license plate that has the name Disney on it. To say we are fanatics is probably an understatement.
Last year my daughter asked us if we could go to Universal for a change because she wanted to see the Harry Potter experience. Neither my wife nor I are big fans of the movie and neither of us has read the books. However, my daughter was excited about the prospect, so we decided to add a few extra days onto our Thanksgiving trip to go to Universal. We stayed on-site at the Hard Rock Hotel and had an absolute blast. The Harry Potter land is nothing short of magical, and I will admit I was quite impressed.
This Christmas holiday we went back to Disney with our extended family and were fortunate enough to be able to do a tour. The experience was breathtaking and completely reinvigorated my excitement over Disney and the magical moments that it creates. Again, we added a few extra days for my wife, daughter and me to go to Universal, and we were equally as impressed. They are certainly two very different parks and accommodate a different audience for sure. However, it is very clear to me that both create magical experiences, are both at the top of their game, and far ahead of any competitors.
Thank you to both Universal and Disney for providing amazing experiences for our family. We could not have had a better trip and now consider our family to be fanatics both of Disney and Universal.
