The people over at Geek Mom have been doing a series of posts about Universal Orlando, and I've found them to be really informative. I thought I'd post the links here, since I suspect their site might be off the typical Disney/Orlando radar.

I suspect they will be posting more installments in the series, so I'll add links when new posts show up.
