Day 3637 - Festival of Fifty - Universal Studios LA

Capturing the Youthfulness in FIFTY

If you follow me on Instagram you'll know that the Festival of Fifty has included a whole lot of travel that took us to Orlando, Miami, the British Virgin Islands, Pennsylvania, LA and home.

If you've followed me for a while you'll also recall that my word of the year is FIFTY which stands for 

F is for Fabulous 
I is for Inspired 
F is for Fitness
T is for Travel 
Y is for Youthfulness 

Today I take you on a photo tour of Universal Studios in Hollywood where the Y really got a good workout.

The Back Lot Tour was by far my favourite part

What goes up, must come down - Jurassic Park

More fun in Springfield

Without a doubt our favourite ride

Universal Studios Hollywood is a mixture of rides, magical lands, movie sets, special effect shows and more.  It costs around $110 USD per person to buy online, around $120 USD to grab your tickets at your hotel or $130USD at the gate.  For Fast Past options add another $60USD or so per person which is highly recommended if you want to change your wait time from an hour per ride to 15 minutes.

Still to come in the Travel section of FIFTY are posts about the BVI, Pennsylvania and Malibu.  For the Fabulous section I'll share my big Five Oh 70s/80s inspired birthday party with you all which is tomorrow night.  Then with a bit of luck we'll get back to some Fitness and Inspiration as I let go of the festival and continue life in my new decade.

  1. You sure have made it a great way to much happening. Good on you for embracing it. Yes, I have been to LA's Universal Studios. I had one day in LA and did a tour - Venice Beach, Beverly Hills etc and had the afternoon at Universal. It had not appealed much but I found I enjoyed the movie lot tour and more. Bought home souvenirs. Had my photo taken with Shrek and Fiona. It was 2006 and Grandma was very cool!!
