Universal Orlando Resort recently invited me to enjoy a special date at the parks for Valentine's Day. They kindly provided us with tickets and dinner during our visit. Thoughts and opinions shared on our experience below are my own.

Flowers, chocolate frogs, Voodoo Doughnuts... sounds like the perfect Valentine's Day date to me! Jesse and I visited Universal Orlando Resort for a fun Valentine's Day date that was anything but ordinary. 

We had the best time hitting all our favorite attractions at the parks and snacking on sweets. At Universal Studios Florida, we strolled around and sipped our coffee before having a friendly competition on Men In Black Alien Attack (and I totally won, just for the record). 

We then went to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley. There, we rode Harry Potter and the Escape From Gringotts, which is my favorite ride at Universal Orlando Resort. I have to ride it at least once every trip! Afterwards, we stopped by Sugarplum's Sweetshop to get Jesse's favorite candy.

We then headed over to Islands of Adventure for even more fun. Jesse rode Doctor Doom's Fearfall as a single rider, his favorite ride, but one I have to sit out (love Jesse, hate heights lol). We made a quick trip to Hogsmeade for a castle selfie and shopping at Honeydukes before dinner at CityWalk.

Our reservations were at VIVO Italian Kitchen, and since we've only been there once before for drinks and appetizers, we were really excited to sit down for a romantic and relaxing dinner. We recapped our day over bread and olive oil, calamari, and margherita pizza. Sooo delicious!

There's plenty more to do at CityWalk once the sun goes down and the parks close... unfortunately, the weather put a little damper on those plans, so we ended the night early, but will surely be back for another date night soon.

We had such an amazing time at Universal Orlando Resort celebrating Valentine's Day a little early. Thanks again to Universal Orlando Resort for hosting us!
