At Islands of Adventure, we were excited to find Seuss Landing looking good! If I Ran the Zoo recently reopened and now Caro-Seuss-el has reopened! It’s been so long since we could take a ride on the carousel.

This also means that both tracks are running at the High in the Sky Seuss Trolley Train Ride. This will help reduce the wait time by having Star and Beach sides going during the day.

To escape the crowds, we decided to dine in the Navigators Club above Confisco Grille. This is a UOAP exclusive dining area with amazing views of the park. This really feels like eating in an exclusive club! This area is open for Annual Passholders and their guests.

The arcade in Marvel Super Hero Islands is a great way to escape the rain or heat and win some prizes. These Jurassic Park plush in the claw machine are adorable.
