We’ve noticed a lot more photographers around the parks lately. A My Universal Photos package is a great way to capture your day in the park.

Islands of Adventure is also quiet this afternoon. Lines for food around the park are very short. The weather might not be great, but the crowds are perfect.

A quick stop at the Watering Hole in Jurassic Park for a Predator Rocks. We usually go for the Bird of Paradise but we decided to switch it up today and have no regrets.
