    Rides-- Caveat, this is my first trip to Universal in two years so Kong, Fallon, and FNF was all new to us. im certainly a theme park apologist but i really enjoyed Fast and Furious. Good effects fun time. Kong was cool, PERIOD, great themeing cool story great AA at the end.
    -also i cant say enough how much single rider helps with rides
    -FJ had a 10 minutes wait at 1030 this morning, i was shocked to see this. Hulk and Kong had the longst lines all three days

    Food- was an absolute home run this trip. First time for Toothsome and we freaking loved it. i had the rib eye sandwich at it was incredible. Vivo was also great. Tremendous service and quality food.

    Hotel- What can i say about Cabana Bay but we re DVC members so we e stayed at some nice deluxe resorts and this place is my wife's favorite

    Transportation- by far better than disney. never waited

    one more thing Voodoo is a huge hit, there were voodoo boxes being carried around ll over the place. we went to voodoo at about 10 last night and there was an hour wait to get doughnuts

    Great time once again at UOR probobly wont be back for a couple of years

    Seriously. Cabana has been better than every moderate at Disney I’ve stayed at.

    Good to see you had such a great time. Yes, we love CBBR too. Such a fun, beautiful resort at a really affordable price. Two really good pools and a fun, usually uncrowded, lazy river. All that neon lit up in the evening is stunning. And never have to wait for a bus. Just about always two are lined up. We absolutely love Kong. Contrary to what some say, Kong must be pretty popular with the GP. Even though it has high capacity, it just about always has one of the two longest lines on a daily basis in both parks. Hope you got to ride it in the dark. It's even better.Toothsome is great. Vivo has a nice interesting menu. You need to try Cowfish also, it's very good. ...and yes, Single Rider is the secret plus. We use it often if we're not staying at the deluxe hotels. And Universal goes all out with Single Rider, unlike Disney. It's on most of the good attractions and the TM's fill the seats with single riders quickly & efficiently....Universal is the complete vacation package if you stay on site. That keeps it relaxing since it's so easy to move from hotel, to the parks, to Citi Walk, and back to the pool when it gets too hot or hectic.

    Did you ride F&F first, or Kong first?

    Do you feel like one was affected positively or negatively by riding it first or second?
    Example- I would think that if you rode Transformers first and have never ridden Spiderman, you'd like it better. And I'm curious if that's the same with F&F if you haven't ridden Kong.

    And how would you compare the 2 on a scale of 1-10?

    i rode F&F first so that might ve helped it
    they are very similar rides probably Kong an 8 and F&F a 7 because i like the themeing and the AA of Kong
