PHOTO REPORT: Universal Orlando Resort 5/14/21 (Churro Stand Doughnut, VelociCoaster, Crowds, and More)
Welcome to another amazing day here at the Universal Orlando Resort. It’s a beautiful Friday and we’re ready to take on the weekend crowds! Before heading into the parks, we stopped into Voodoo Doughnut for their newest doughnut.
Universal Studios Florida has Early Park Admission, so we started our day there. If you can get to the parks early, you’ll beat a lot of the crowds.
We peeked into the window of the Leaky Cauldron and spotted long lines for breakfast. There aren’t too many food options available in the morning, so plan accordingly.
As we passed through CityWalk, we noticed that barricades had been set up for standby lines, but the parks did not hit capacity today.
Islands of Adventure was crowded, but thankfully, wait times aren’t too bad. Hogsmeade is always packed.
VelociCoaster soft opening continues in Jurassic Park. The wait time hasn’t been too bad, either. The attraction had an 80 minute wait when we stopped by this afternoon.
Small, free lockers for VelociCoaster are located inside the queue and there is a place to check the size of your bag near the test seat at the entrance. Another space to check your bag has been added next to the large lockers in the Discovery Center.
