Heading to Orlando, but I need help...

Sunday, October 7, 2001 5:34 PM
Ok, I'm going to Orlando but I only have time to go to 3 parks. I want to know what you guys think of which parks should I hit. The choices are IOA, Magic Kingdom, MGM, Epcot, Sea World, Universal and Animal Kingdom. I was going to go to Busch Gardens but it's too far away. Another question, which day (from thursday to Saturday) does IOA have less lines. So what do you guys think? Thanks for any answers...

I've heard that Disney World is a waste, and that IOA is the way to go. Have fun!!

IoA of course and I think Sea World. Maybe Magic Kingdom if you haven't been there yet, otherwise Universal?

They only one I would not reccomend is Unviversal Studios. The rides seem so outdated, and there just isn't a whole lot of fun stuff to do.

Try IOA. I didn't think BGT was that far away, but that would be my second choice. My third choice would probably be either MGM or Sea World. Have fun!

Easy decision for me, IOA, BGT, and MGM.  IOA and BGT are just plain awesome, MGM is the best Disney park if your over 5 years old.  Sea World has great shows, but not enough rides, but it's better than all the other Disney parks..

BGT isn't too far away.  For coaster riding IOA, BGT, and Disney MGM.  If you don't go to BGT add Sea World for Kraken.

Of course if you've never been there, the Magic Kingdom is all your childhood dreams.

I would definately go to IOA and if at all possible BGT.  Dont go to Universal or Magic Kingdom, they are not worth it.  I would also choose Seaworld over Disney because of Kraken.

i agree, IOA, and BGT really isn't that far away.  i haven't been to MGM after their new coaster, but other than that, they only have tower of terror and star wars that are exciting if i remember rightly.  Sea World has Kraken, and i'm guessing you'd be riding that, and Journey to Atlantis all day.  i think also magic kingdom is good if you've never been there.  universal studious and animal kingdom i think are a waste.  and epcot too

so, i'd try IOA, SW, and MK, and if you can make it to BGT, take your pick with SW and MK

Definitely hit IOA.  If you are looking for thrills then also hit Kraken at Sea World(and Atlantis) and MGM(Rock 'n' Roller Coaster and Tower of Terror).  But as said before, Magic Kingdom to fufill your childhood fantasies.  If you choose to do all Disney, make sure you go to EPCOT.  Test Track, World Showcase, and pretty much everything else there is pretty cool.  BGT is only an hour away though!  I have been to Orlando twice lately and missed it both times, I would hate for you to do that.  They do sell a pass for BGT,IOA,Sea World,Wet n Wild, and US though.  I don't know your age but if you are with your parents, maybe that will coax them into letting you go to BGT.  You could easily do Sea World and MGM together in the same day, especially since you have already been to MGM.

When exactly are you going?  If you go at a slow time, you can do IOA and Universal Studios on the same day with a combo pass.

As far as the others, I would pass on Disney's Animal Kingdom and Sea World.  Busch Gardens is nice but a drive away.

If you have never been to WDW, I highly reccommend going to the Magic Kingdom and Epcot.  MGM is nice, Tower of Terror is a fave, and Rock and Roller Coaster is good, but I wouldn't call MGM a must see if you ahve limited time.

But I will say this...If you go to WDW at the right time, you can see two parks in one day, seeing most of the parks.  I am a big fan of WDW, enjoying the total experience.  I must say that there is sooo much to see there, and hurrying will allow you to miss some of the smaller shows/acts/attractions.  But you can always come back sometime in the future.

I hope I was able to help.
