If you’re coming for Early Park Admission, make sure you get to the park early. Because only one park is open early, the lines to get in can be long.

Central Park Crepes has updated their menu for summer. A new seasonal crepe has replaced the Mardi Gras crepe and a new plant based option has replaced the Vegan Sausage. You can read our full reviews of the new Raspberry and Passion Fruit Cream crepe and Plant Based Chick’n crepe here.

Many attractions have brought back single rider lines and are filling every seat in every row. This helps greatly reduce the wait times around the parks.

As we made our way through CityWalk to Islands of Adventure, we stop to appreciate the beautiful sky.

Jurassic World VelociCoaster has been having technical rehearsals lately. The wait time was only 60 minutes when we stopped by. The single rider like was also open.

The Jurassic Park Discovery Center recently became home to the VelociCoaster store, but the old exhibits seems to be slowly coming back to life now. There are a few tables for dining at the Burger Digs, still, but many of them have been pushed off to the side so the exhibits can be accessible to the guests.
