Universal Studios Hollywood The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle

Tags

, ,

Starting June 24th, summer is getting a whole lot brighter at Universal Studios Hollywood with The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle. If you have been to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood, you already know about the charming and whimsical snow-capped buildings, cobblestone streets and endearing shops. The magical lights at night just give it that effervescent glow highlighting the castle and all its magic.

As night falls on Hogsmeade village, “The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle” shines brightly with an awe-inspiring spectacle that showcases the four houses of Hogwarts: Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin, and culminates with awesome beams of lights that fan into the night sky. The colorful state-of-the-art light display and special effects projection is accompanied by a special musical arrangement created by Academy® award-winning composer John Williams based on his original scores composed for the film series. The musical arrangement that emanates in a surround sound environment was conducted by prolific arranger William Ross and recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra in London.

“The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle” at “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter” – Universal Studios Hollywood — Hufflepuff house featured

 

In addition to the Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle, there are some fun new “must-dos” to check off your list during your visit to the Wizarding World:

  • With a gentle flick of the wrist and just the right touch, guests can cast spells throughout “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter” at dazzling wand magic locations. This summer’s installation of two additional spells ups the tally to 15 thrilling wand magic experiences to practice. The Incendio fire-making spell will conjure flames of varying size based on skill level, and the Alohomora spell will unlock a series of intricate locks that may reveal the fiery breath of a creature hidden behind a secret door.
  • Three Broomsticks expands its lunchtime menu with a selection of traditional British fare, including:
    •  Ploughman’s Lunch, featuring an imported selection of ham, salami, country paté, English cheese, homemade pickles and a warm scotch egg served with bread, cranberry chutney and grain mustard
    • Cheese Toastie with Chicken, featuring grilled English Cheddar cheese with chicken, crispy bacon, mustard and sliced tomato topped with a sunny side egg served with a fresh salad or potato wedges
    • Sunday Roast Sandwich served on a freshly baked baguette filled with warm prime rib, caramelized onions, English Cheddar, horseradish sauce and homemade garlic pickles served with fresh salad or potato wedges
  • Guests can channel their inner wizards at Gladrags Wizardwear with a wide array of apparel inspired by the films. The billowing house robes worn by the students of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and accompanying house uniforms, including hand-loomed cardigans from Scotland, scarves and ties are available for purchase.  New to Gladrags Wizardwear this season is a high-end replica of Professor Severus Snape’s robe, as well as a replica of Hermonione’s dress worn at the Yule Ball as seen in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, which is now available in adult and children’s sizes. Other wizard attire includes a replica of the cardigan worn by Neville Longbottom in the Battle of Hogwarts scene in the film series finale. Select attire is available in a variety of sizes from toddler to adult.
  • Just like the talking mirror in the Harry Potter films, Madam Malkin’s Talking Mirror makes quite a reflective entrance this summer, located in the corridor between Dervish and Banges™ and Gladrags Wizardwear. Speaking with an English accent, the Talking Mirror will entertain guests with a variety of complimentary remarks.

Universal Studios Hollywood Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Couple of things RSMLVTravel loves about Universal Studios Hollywood:

  • Purchase of specific tickets will allow access to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter one hour before the park opens to the general public.
  • Child Switch for those visiting with littles who cannot ride a ride yet. A guest may stay behind with the younger child while the rest ride. When the guests return they “switch” so the remainder of the party can ride.
  • Decent food- Yes, we said it. We are not always huge fans of theme park food, but Universal Studios Hollywood has some fun stuff to experiences like the Butter Beer at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Duff’s Beer and the famous pink donughts from the Simpsons in Springfield, USA, and the ice cream at Phineas Q. Butterfats.
  • Take advantage of the World Famous Studio Tour…not only is it a great opportunity to sit for awhile, there are some serious theatrical highlights you won’t want to miss, along with movie and television sets from some of your favorite shows.

Universal Studios Hollywood

Of course, we have some tips for visiting the Universal Studios Hollywood Theme Parks:

  • We suggest Universal Express when purchasing your tickets. Universal Express allows you express line access 1 time for each ride, attraction and seated show. There may be some exclusions, so always best to check the website when buying your tickets.
  • Clients of RSMLVTravel highly recommend the VIP Experience. An all-day, all-access, behind the scenes tour that truly makes guests feel like a VIP. The VIP Experience includes unlimited express access to rides, attractions, and seated shows; expert guided tour including back lot; continental breakfast; gourmet lunch in exclusive VIP dining room; valet parking. Check website for more details and restrictions.
  • Only have 1-day? We’ve done it…you can, too! With the above suggestions on ticket purchases, it is possible to see the entire park in one day. Be sure to bring parkas for Jurassic Park and Water World. There are lockers available, and there are a variety of food options throughout the park that are worth exploring.

Universal Studios Hollywood Butter Beer

LEGOLand California Resort Opens LEGOLand Castle Hotel

Tags

, ,

Castles and Princesses seem to be the “It” theme of Spring 2018. LEGOLand California Resort has jumped on the Royal Carriage with the opening of the LEGOLand Castle Hotel.

According to General Manager, Frank Idris, the LEGOLand Castle Hotel is a response to guests loving the current themed hotels, and wanting even more of an immersive experience.

“Seeing guests walk into the Grand Hall for the first time is an awesome sight,” said General Manager Frank Idris. “I can’t believe just five years ago we opened the first LEGOLAND® Hotel in the nation proving how much LEGOLAND California Resort has become a multi-day destination for families with children ages 2-12. Our guests have asked for an even more immersive experience and that’s exactly what we’re giving them with LEGOLAND Castle Hotel. Not only does every room tell a story, every wall, floor, LEGO® model is designed to make guests feel like they’re in an actual castle.”

Themed rooms showcase disguised Princesses competing with Knights in the grand tournament, Knights and Dragons defending the castle, and Magic Wizard concocting potions and fireworks. Each room comes complete with bunk beds and trundles making this resort a true family-focused resort. The LEGOLand Castle Hotel offers a full-service sit-down dining restaurant, the Dragon’s Den, and breakfast is complimentary for each hotel guest daily.

The Royal Courtyard immerses children in a fairy tale of their own creation with multiple play areas for different age groups, a giant movie screen, resort-style pool with interactive water features and hot tub and a tented stage for live plays and shows. Interactive elements throughout LEGOLAND Castle Hotel include a knock-knock door, a royal throne that makes silly noises, LEGO caricatures to build upon, a self-playing piano and a slide from the first floor to the lobby.

Legoland california theme parks

During your Royal visit, don’t forget to enjoy the three theme parks offered at LEGOLand California: LEGOLand, SEA LIFE Aquarium and the LEGOLand Water Park. All three parks are geared towards ages 2-12 and offer exciting new adventures like Ninjago and the Chima Water Park. StarWars mini-land will keep fans intrigued for hours. Different LEGO themes adventures throughout the park will keep families entertained all day.

Of course, we have some tips for visiting the LEGOLand Theme Parks:

  • Park Hoppers are available for two parks or all three. Though it is possible to do them all in one day (if you get up early enough and only plan to stay at each park for a few hours) we suggest getting the park hopper and enjoying two days at the park. RSMLVTravel can assist you with LEGOLand California Park Hopper passes, and there is a special for buy one day, get the 2nd day FREE!
  • Summer is can be crowded and hot. RSMLVTravel suggests purchasing the Reserve ‘N’ Ride to reserve your spot in line for up to 6 people.
  • Only have 1-day? If the parks of choice for the day are the LEGOLand Park and the LEGOLand Water Park, never fear. There are lockers to store your stuff while you enjoy the water slides. Then afterward, your family of 6 can jump in a life-size air blower to warm up and get back into the swing of things.

If the LEGOLand California Resort is too much theme for your stay, we suggest these fine luxury family resorts in the Carlsbad area that are within 1-mile driving distance to the LEGOLand Park:

International Essentials

*How we make money: Affiliate links through amazon.com

I am a firm believer in having the right gear for everything –sports, fashion, travel, school, home organization- the list goes on. It makes the experience that much better. The right product can also create efficiency giving you the value of time on its ROI. Albeit, the right gear doesn’t have to cost a fortune, but I do value quality and am not afraid to spend a few extra bucks to get something I know will work properly and have staying power. I am also quite obsessed with finding said products. I will search high and low, inside and out, up, down and around to make sure it is the most of all of the above. For you my friends, you get to reap the benefits of what I find to be the latest and greatest for travel products today.* (Reminding you about affiliate links and 3rd party sites…see below for more info on this subject.) 

A Adam Elements Worldwide Travel Adapter Omnia TA502 is a magical cube. On all four sides, there is some sort of plug for some sort of outlet, including 2 USB ports for charging. Much easier from the days of lugging around a plastic box full of optional adapters for the countries you were visiting. The A Adam Elements Worldwide Travel Adapter comes in a variety of colors, has an LED indicator light for charging status, can charge devices between 100-240 voltage, has a built-in safety fuse to protect your devices, and can be used in over 150 countries. Plus, it’s light and it just looks cool. It is not, however, capable or suggested for use with items such as a hairdryer, coffee pot or iron.

A Adam Elements Omnia TA502

 

Tumi Universal Power Adapter with USB –Grounded covers what the Omnia TA502 does not, which isn’t much, but in case you need a grounded outlet for the devices mentioned above (hairdryer, coffee pot or iron– or any other high power appliances), the Tumi Universal Power Adapter has your back. It works similar to the OmniaTA502 where the prongs pop in and out based on usage, also has a fuse, and comes in a styled carrying case. It only has 1 USB port, but worth the convenience of having a grounded adapter in case you need to travel with your coffee pot. Kidding. I have the Dyson hair dryer, and that hair dryer for sure, if I ever decided to take it internationally, would definitely need this type of adapter.

flight001 T5 Series Family Travel Organizer is my most favorite Friday Find so far! Talk about searching high and low to find the best products– on a recent trip to New York City, my girlfriend and I were determined to find the flight001 store in Greenwich Village. It was worth the trek to the travel goodies mecca just to find this one organizational masterpiece. This is the best find for my family of 6 as a travel necessity. One place to keep all passports zipped up and neat. There’s also room credit or rewards cards, a pen loop, and a detachable wristlet so you can be hands-free while getting through security or checking into the hotel. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find this exact piece on their site, but give the Greenwich Village location a call and see if they will drop ship to you. (212) 989-0001

Travel Tip: Real ID Card

Tags

, ,

Have you heard the latest? Is your state compliant? Starting October 1, 2020, if you have not obtained a REAL ID Card, you will not be able to board a domestic flight with only your Driver License. A valid United States passport or other federally approved identification like a military ID will still get you on a domestic commercial flight. However, you will not be able to access federal facilities and nuclear power plants without a REAL ID.

I recently learned this when at the DMV renewing my driver license. I wish I would have paid more attention to the details of what I needed to bring with me in order to get the REAL ID card– which is basically your state’s driver license with a gold star added to it, stating you are in fact, a citizen of the United States. I had been hearing some rumblings of this, but honestly paid little attention until my license was about to expire. I looked further into the explanation behind the REAL ID, and in case you also are unaware here is a brief description of its purpose according to the Department of Homeland Security website:

Secure driver’s licenses and identification documents are a vital component of our national security framework. The REAL ID Act, passed by Congress in 2005, enacted the 9/11 Commission’s recommendation that the Federal Government “set standards for the issuance of sources of identification, such as driver’s licenses.” The Act established minimum security standards for license issuance and production and prohibits Federal agencies from accepting for certain purposes driver’s licenses and identification cards from states not meeting the Act’s minimum standards. The purposes covered by the Act are: accessing Federal facilities, entering nuclear power plants, and, no sooner than 2016, boarding federally regulated commercial aircraft.

You can check the dhs.gov/real-id website to find out if your state is compliant or has an extension. Apparently, participation by states is voluntary, so each state basically has the option of whether or not they are going to choose to become compliant under the REAL ID Act. However, regardless if your state chooses to become compliant, a regular driver license will no longer be an acceptable form of ID to board a domestic flight or access federal facilities and nuclear power plants after October 1, 2020. Sounds like you will either need to have a REAL ID or a valid US Passport no matter what.

REAL ID US MAP

Clearly, I am not a federal agency, nor do I work for one. I obtained this information, just like you can, through the Department of Homeland Security and the Nevada DMV websites. The information I am sharing with you below is from a flyer given to me from the NVDMV. You should always check with your own state in regards to compliance information and if there are any further documentation needed in order to apply for and obtain your REAL ID. I am sharing this info with you because I was totally annoyed at the fact that I went all the way down to the DMV (with an appointment!) and did not have the right docs with me, and now I have to go back. So this is really just a courtesy post, not an official government issued certified one.

If you choose to update your current license with a REAL ID prior to October 1, 2020, here is what you need to bring with you to the DMV:

  • Proof of Identity:
    • US Birth Certificate
    • US Passport or Passport Card
    • US Certificate of Citizenship or Naturalization
    • Permanent Resident/Resident Alien Card (I-551) (Permanent Resident Cards must be updated at age 14 unless the bearer turns age 16 prior to expiration)
    • Foreign Passport with temporary I-551 stamp
    • Out of State REAL ID (not marked limited term)
    • Name change documents such as a marriage certificate or court order- if different from birth name
  • Limited-Term Documents: (Limited-Term will be indicated when limited-term Immigration documents are presented)
    • Employment Authorization card (I-766)
    • Foreign Passport, US Visa & I-94
  • One (1) – Proof of Social Security Number
    • Social Security Card
    • Paystub with complete Social Security Number
    • W-2 or 1099

*All documents must be valid, unexpired original or certified copies that were issued in the United States (except for foreign passports). The DMV does not accept photocopies.

By the way, you actually have to go to the DMV to update to a REAL ID because they will take your picture. No worries though! There are several DMVs in the Las Vegas and Henderson areas that schedule appointments. I did this last week, and it was easy peasy. Like in and out in 15 minutes, no joke.

For the record, the following items are NOT affected by whether or not you have a REAL ID:

  • Entering Federal facilities that do not require a person to present identification
  • Voting or registering to vote
  • Applying for or receiving Federal benefits
  • Being licensed by a state to drive
  • Accessing Health or life-preserving services (including hospitals and health clinics), law enforcement, or constitutionally protected activities (including a defendant’s access to court proceedings)
  • Participating in law enforcement proceedings or investigations

I encourage you to visit the dhs.gov/real-id website and your state’s DMV website to learn more about the REAL ID Act. It is actually laid out quite well and answers a ton more questions than the snippets I have here.

*RSMLVTravel and RockStarMomLV is not and was not employed by any government agency to share this information. The information shared was taken directly from the Department of Homeland Security and NVDMV websites. My job is not to enforce the law or regulations…my job is to keep you traveling! 

Breakfast at Tiffany’s Blue Box Cafe

Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Yes, perhaps a bit cliché, but some little girls dream about fairytale weddings at Disneyland, some dream about blue boxes from Tiffany. I dreamt of both. Of course, I was in my 20s before ever gifted a pretty little robin egg blue box wrapped ever so perfectly with a white satin bow. My daughter was 12.

I prefer to liken the experience based on the many times we traveled all over the United States in search of the American Doll store and its Cafe or Bistro –or Bar if mom had her way. A sweet opportunity to bond with my daughter and her well-dressed doll(s) for a few hours over lunch, then a shopping spree to following at the store below. (If you are new to American Doll, be sure to check out my post on how to shop with an American Girl Doll Personal Shopper–you can thank me in the comments.) While fun and endearing and full of memories, I was sad when the time came to an end, but now there is a whole new grown-up version of creating those memories once again. This time, however, with an air of sophistication, historical significance, fashion statement and timeless memories. We had finally graduated from American Girl to Tiffany & Co.

breakfast at tiffany's blue box cafe

Blue Box Cafe is located on the 4th floor of the original and strikingly beautiful New York flagship store at 727 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY. There are stairs available but take the opportunity to ride at least one way in the famed elevators where the doors and the floor indicators above are restored from the original. The Blue Box Cafe is an intimate venue looking out onto the hustle and bustle of 5th Avenue and Central Park (in the distance), and styled with a touch of modern, a bit of vintage and the true classic Tiffany style.

breakfast at tifanys blue box cafe

What’s On the Menu

Breakfast at Tiffany ($29), Lunch ($39) and Tiffany Tea ($49) are available on the menu at the Blue Box Cafe. The restaurant is open Monday – Saturday, 10:00AM5:30PM, with the last seating at 5:30PM, and Sunday, 12:00PM4:30PM, with the last seating at 4:30PM. It is served almost like a prix fixé menu, where there are limited choices for each dining selection. There are dessert and beverages available à la carte. Our party chose the Breakfast option. Our main selections were the truffle eggs and the Belgian waffle, served with starter courses of croissant with Nutella®, honey butter and winter fruit preserves, along with a delicious side dish of seasonal fruits and berries. A choice of coffee or tea comes with the meal, but you may also order juice or other beverages from the à la carte menu. We were all quite satisfied with our choices.

breakfast at tiffanys whats on the menu

How To Get On the List

The only way to book a reservation at the Blue Box Cafe is through an on-line reservation system called Resy.com. You can call 212 605 4270 for more information, but you will not be able to book via the telephone. Also, I would suggest booking your reservation one month out from your preferred date. I would imagine this is partially due to the popularity of the venue, but also because of its intimate atmosphere. There are not many tabletops in this coveted space. Resy.com opens its booking calendar one month out at a time, so set a reminder or alarm on your calendar to book your spot.

Who Should Go

When we visited in March, we enjoyed a multi-generational tea celebrating my daughter’s 12th birthday. I observed business meetings, an anniversary celebration, a small bridal shower happening while we were there. There was also a couple with a young girl, maybe 2-3 years old. It truly is a lovely experience, and I would just keep in mind the size of the space, and bring your party, any age, at your discretion.

breakfast at tiffanys

Would I Go Back?

Yes. I would absolutely go back. Would I go back every time? Probably not, but not because the experience wasn’t great– it was totally fab. My time in New York City is precious to me because there is always so much to do in so little time. However, I most definitely recommend Blue Box Cafe at Tiffany as an experience worth making time for, and be sure to plan in some time to shop!

Before You Go

Of course, it is easy enough to watch the cult classic film, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s“, but to get a true sense of the history and Tiffany & Co. mark on society and culture, I recommend these fun, easy reads: (Please note the links below are affiliate links.*)

Summer at Tiffany’s: I personally adore this book for several reasons. 1. The author, Marjorie Hart, was a professor at the University of San Diego (my alma mater); 2. The story is based on her personal experience of working at the Tiffany & Co. flagship store in the summer of 1945; 3. Quick, easy, fun summer read…indulge!

5th Avenue, 5 AM: Audrey Hepburn Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and the Dawn of the Modern Woman: Watch the movie, then read about the behind the scenes and the making of…I love stuff like this! Also, this is available on Kindle.

Tiffany Style: 170 Years of Design: This one sits on my coffee table at home because I truly am obsessed with the iconic styles and contributions Tiffany & Co. has made on our culture.
