Now I’m not a huge amusement park person. I don’t like rides, and I don’t like lines. I even considered passing up both Universal Studios and Disney Land. In the end, I decided to give Universal Studios a go solely to avoid the awkward post-holiday questions of what I even did in LA.
It was amazing. I only went for the Despicable Me and Shrek rides but both were adorable, although the minions came on top hands down. The tram tour and the shows were equally impressive. What really won my over, I have to say, were the under-appreciated actors. Spongebob, the Gru sisters, Donkey from Shrek, everyone was lively, enthusiastic, and crazy talented.
