Calendar Tab V4.0

We have another video tutorial turned into a blog post for you. In this blog tutorial, we will help you navigate the calendar tab for Version 4.0, this is for Ios only.

The calendar tab is pretty the much the same as Version 3.0, but we have updated a few things since then and wanted to share with you what they were.

So now you can clearly see what type of event you have in your calendar, so you know if it is a birthday or a Facebook event. We even colour coded them, so if you tap on Calendars you will see the different colour types for each type of event.

When you want to add an event then press the plus button it will change into a tick and then appear on your timeline. Go to the countdowns tab and you will see the event will be in the calendar style, if you want to change the style of the countdown or even add an image you can do so by tapping on the gear icon, then scroll to appearance and style. Change the format and then add an image.

Also cancelling the event from the timeline is easy, you now only need to go to the timeline view and swipe left to cancel the event. Once you add calendar events, you obviously can’t change the date on them, since it’s the date you set on your smartphone calendar.

Thank you for reading this tutorial, we will be releasing more tutorials very soon. If you have any questions about the app then message us on Facebook. Check out the original video here.

Top 5 things to do at Universal Studios

Following along from our last Top 5 blog post about Disneyland we wanted to do a similar post but for Universal Studios Orlando. So here are our Top 5 things to do whilst at Universal Studios Orlando. All this info was sourced from Pinterest.

  1. Don’t Travel to Universal during summer holidays

One of the busiest months is during the summer holidays mid-June- late August. Those are the months to best avoid a trip there. It is also the three hottest months to visit the park as well. Aim to travel when summer holidays or the easter weekend. It will be a better experience if you don’t go at the busiest times since you won’t be queuing for hours.

  1. Buy a Park to Park Ticket

It highly recommends online that you get a park to park ticket since it makes it easier. You can get a train ticket to board the Hogwarts Express, which actually works as a park to park transport. You can go to the ticket booths at either station in the parks. Best thing to do is to book these tickets in advance to save on time and money.

  1. Stay on the On-site hotels at Universal Studios

It is a must and also a benefit if you stay at any of the on-site hotels. It’s not just a convenient place to stay but, you will get the chance to go to each park with a Universal Express Unlimited pass for both park free of charge. You can receive early admission to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. You can enter the parks as well one hour earlier than general admission, perfect since a lot of the attractions are very busy in the morning. Also, this free pass is for your whole stay not just a one-off pass, so it is something to take full advantage of.

  1. Enjoy a Butter Beer

One of the most popular drinks at Universal Studios Orlando is the butter beer at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. It is a huge must drink everywhere we look online. It is said to taste a little bit like a cream soda, perfect picture opportunity as well, to share with all your friends online. There is also a frozen version of the drink.

  1. Eat a Pink Doughnut

We keep seeing this everywhere online but get a taste of the amazing pink doughnut which you can find at Lard Lad Donuts. It is located in the Simpsons area of the theme park. The pink doughnut is basically the size of your face and it is really fun for a picture opportunity as well. Well worth it if you want to share it too since it’s huge.

Hope you all enjoyed another Universal Studios Orlando post. Don’t forget to tag all your Disneyland countdowns with #countdownplus and #countdown.

User Inspired Events

This post is another one of our users inspired posts that we really enjoy writing because all of our users have such amazing countdowns. For this one, it’s a mixed user inspired event post.

First up is @chrissiebarlow with their countdown to Disneyland next year in September 2018. As we always tell our followers, it never is too early for any countdowns. We love to talk about Disneyland on our blog here, our last post was just about Disneyland. Disneyland by 2018 will feature a lot of new rides to enjoy such as the new Guardians of the Galaxy ride formerly the Tower of Terror and a new Star Wars attraction. Going to Disneyland just before Halloween will be exciting, there will be many shows to watch and the park will be transformed for your enjoyment. Halloween gets well under way from September so there is a lot to look forward to such at Mickey’s Halloween Party at the park. So overall a fabulous time to head to Disneyland and we hope you have a lovely time, we can’t wait to countdown along with you for the rest of the year.

Far too excited for this! 😍✈️🇺🇸 #holiday #family #friends #florida #disneyland #dreamcometrue #countdown #love

Next, is @lottieq96 with their countdown to Tenerife in a few months’ time. We have seen a few Tenerife countdowns on Instagram but we loved the look of this one. Tenerife is a lovely sunny place for a holiday, whether it’s with a group or you’re going as a couple. There is so much to do whilst in Tenerife, if you just want to enjoy the pool then the best place to go to is Siam Park which is a huge favourite with many tourists. The park is massive so expect to spend most of your day there and maybe don’t plan to do anything but spend your day there. Loro Parque Zoo is a firm favourite too from our research online, you can get a ticket for both Siam Park and the Zoo which helps to queue jump at the water park. There is so much to see at the Zoo lots of shows so chances to see some animals in action. You are guaranteed to see animals in the sunshine since it’s sunny all year around in Tenerife.

Can't bloody wait 😬☀️ #what #I #have #been #waiting #for #holiday #sun #tenerife #countdown

Top 5 things to do at Disneyland

We love to talk about Disneyland a lot on our blog, our Disneyland posts always perform well with our audience. So we wanted to do a Top 5 things to do at Disneyland. All this info was sourced from Pinterest.

  1. Eat a Dole Whip

Something which we have seen time and time again on Pinterest in regard to food at Disneyland, they all tell you to have a Dole Whip. It is a Disneyland favourite and a staple food, you cannot go wrong with it. Also it makes for a lovely picture for all social media channels or just Instagram.

  1. Take a picture in front of the castle

Whether you go as a couple or with a group of friends, taking a picture in front of the castle is always a must do. Either get some Minnie ears and take some artsy photos for Instagram. It is a really a perfect photo opportunity at any parks across the globe.

  1. Take photos with classic Disney characters

A great way to remember your trip is by taking lots of pictures with some Disney characters. They can be spotted all through the park, and you can queue to see a few of them all in one go. So choose who you want to take pictures with and manage to squeeze it in during your trip.

  1. Watch a fireworks show.

So usually towards the end of the day, you can expect to see a fireworks show. Depending on the time of year it could be season themed. It is always worth a watch after a long day of adventure at the park.

1.Walk through the Sleeping Beauty Castle

So not only is it recommended to take a picture in front of the castle but you can actually go inside the castle. It is an attraction basically for the whole family. It’s a really exciting experience, with lights and drama and a thrilling story to follow along.

Hope you all enjoyed another Disneyland post, we will be doing a similar post but for Universal Studios Orlando in a few weeks time. Don’t forget to tag all your Disneyland countdowns with #countdownplus and #countdown.
