I ended up having a much better time at universal studios than I thought I would. We also had photos taken on the Jurassic Park and The Mummy rides, both of which had me looking a bit on the scared side.
I also thoroughly enjoyed the Back to the Future ride.
One of the high points of the day was going to The Milky Way and having Mrs. Leah Adler help me phone Stone Cold Creamery to determine their kashrus status. While I was outside on the phone she told my group that she loved my bears and that she had bears that she travelled with and slept with regularly.
