The Fam travelled by Metro to Universal Studios Hollywood and had great fun meeting many of the movie characters, visiting the various attractions and going on the numerous rides. A particular favourite was the Wizarding World of Harry Potter area. Marie Mulhearn (Sr. Manager Sales Universal Studios) met us and gave us skip the queue ‘Front of Line Passes’ which were very welcome indeed. Afterwards Marie hosted a delicious buffet lunch in the Moulin Rouge Restaurant where Dracula dropped by to meet with us. In the evening we did a site inspection of the Garland Hotel a hip, retro-chic boutique hotel which is situated close to Universal Studios and other Hollywood landmarks and very popular with Families and couples.
