I will be there by myself from Friday - Sunday and plan on going to Cypress Gardens and both Universal parks.
My question is would I be able to do both Universal parks in 1 day and then free up a day to go to Disney or should I enjoy two days at Universal by myself?
Have fun! You owe us a trip report when you come back, seeing you asked for help. ;)
Yeah, if I were to do Disney, it would only be WDW (most coasters)
And for some reason, I couldn't get myself off of MiB. It was worse than crack.
^What? I think you mean "Magic Kingdom," which is PART of WDW.
Yeah that is what I meant. Thanks for the tip Andy. Sounds like I will enjoy 2 days then at Universal.
I would love to do that but since I have a shuttle from the hotel, they only run like once a day, plus I have other things to do in the evening (Xmas shopping)
But thanks for the idea.
To really do Disney at a psychotic pace one needs 4 days, minumum. I would just pass on it until you can get more time there.
If you have a 3rd day why not do Busch? Or Busch and Cypress? *** Edited 9/16/2006 5:26:16 PM UTC by Peabody*** *** Edited 9/16/2006 5:27:30 PM UTC by Peabody***
I would neither recommend this strategy nor would I call it a good idea as a "preview" of what there is as far as future vacationing options. If anything, I think you'd be cheating yourself of the opportunity to find out what's interesting *to you*.
Busch wouldn't be a bad choice. Disney requires a leisurely pace....and family/friends. Must be something to do with that weird "Magic"? Have to wonder if the free fastpass system doesn't work in their favor that way....makes you feel like you HAVE more time...you know, for shopping, eating, and stuff. See related term: In-park spending ;).
Would it be easy to do both parks in 1 day? My plan would be to get to CG right at 9:00, leave at 4:00 be at WDW MK from 5:30-10:00. Granted, I am really just going for the coasters (been to WDW before).
Here is what I am thinking:
Friday 10/21: Universal solo
Saturday 10/22: Cypress Gardens/Magic Kingdom solo
Sunday 10/23: IOA solo
Monday 10/24: BGA with wife
Tuesday: SWO with wife
Am I totally crazy or do you think this would work out?
My guess is you'll spend about 3-4 hours and Cypress, get a lot of *credits*, then bail early for Disney where you can have more FUN....just my best guess... ;)
My wife and I did the four Disney parks on four consecutive days, last year in early October. We had an wonderful time, and were able to experience an amazing amount in each park due to light crowds and mild(er) temperatures. We were definitely exhausted on the third day and had a hard time rolling out of bed on the fourth.
Have a great time.
Thanks for the advice, I have been to MK and Universal but that was 10 years ago, I would imagine shorter lines in October.
I guess I will have to decide if I want to pony up 60+ for one park.
Is there any discounted tickets anywhere for Disney by chance for out of state residents?
Food Prices at Universal are EXPENSIVE! :( I have a little secret for you on how to save $$$ for Dinner (And Eat Plenty Too!) Across I-4 from Universal (On what they call International Drive) are several Brazilian Restaurants that serve ALL YOU CAN EAT BUFFETS for less than Ten Dollars per person! :) The food is Delicious! Two of these restaurants are located behind the FUN SPOT Tourist Attraction (Look for a Giant Ferris Wheel) Across the Street for it is CAMILLAS, which is an All you can eat Buffet. Next door to them is a Brazilian Supermarket where you can get some rather unusual items if this tickles your fancy. About a Half Mile East of Camillas is another Buffet Called VITTORIOS. They are located in a Plaza adjacent to McDonalds. I like this place better than Camellas. About a mile west is a nother Tourist Attraction called MAGIC MIDWAY (Look for a Giant "Slingshot" ride) Across the street from them is a Restaurant Called CRAZY GRILL. It's a little more expensive (About $20) But this is what they call a "Churrascaria" (Brazilian Bar-B-Que) You sit at the table as waiters serve cuts of meat on a Skewer. You point at a cut and they slice it off at your table. Like the other restaurants it's all you can eat too. :)
I hope you find this info useful, have fun in Orlando!
