Trip to Fl I have a question

Monday, April 19, 2004 7:32 PM
My boyfriend's parents live in orlando so we are going down the first week of June. It doesn't cost us anything to stay and most of our food is covered. The only parks in FL that I have been to is, SeaWorld, IOA, and BGT. My questions is he is willing to take me to two parks on this trip. Which two should I go for. I'm really having a time trying to decide. Thanks

You can hit Universal and IoA on the same day, and you can get a ticket that covers both (it's possible that all tickets will get you into both, but I'm not sure), so that should count as one.

Disney is a big deal so I'd avoid it unless you were planning on making a several day outing of it.

I've never been to Sea World Orlando but I've heard some excellent things about Kraken. Since you've been there, you'd probably know.

Same with BGT. You've been there so you should know if you want to do it or not. Tampa's about an hour away from Orlando, but when I was at BGT I was very impressed.

So basically, if I were you, I'd just pick 2 of the parks you said you've been to.

Allthough Disney is a big deal and cannot be explored in 2 days you can experience the MK in a action packed day. If you have never been to a castle park it is high time you go, they are unique, you should enjoy it.

As for the other day, IOA is the better of the Universal Parks but since you havent been to the studios you should probably go there (especially with the new Mummy Coaster) MIB, BTF, Shrek, and T2 among others will provide a fun day.

2017 Trips: WDW, Dollywood, Cedar Point, KI, SDC, BGW, BGT, SWO, Universal Orlando

You can buy a park-hopper pass (they're good forever, so you don't have to use all the days right away) and do two days with two parks each day. Maybe AK and MK one day and Epcot and the Studios another day (just make sure to do AK early in the day because they close early). Of course, SW and the Universal Parks are VERY nice, too. And then you have BGT... yeah, I can see your dilemna!

It took us three trips to Orlando to do everything we wanted to do without rushing, so as long as you succumb to the fact that you'll have to go back, you should be okay.

Thanks I'm still trying to decide. My boyfriend likes parks but I drag him non stop when we go so he does want to relax some this trip. We will be going back near Christmas this year so I will have another change to pick parks. I'm also trying to talk him into one waterpark. Thanks

Universal does not sell two park, one day tickets. The only way you can "park hop" is if you buy a multi-day ticket. A one day ticket is only valid at one park and does not give you access to the other park on that day.

Check into when the park hopper tickets expire (if they do). I know the Disney ones do not. If you order ahead of time, you can get a 4-day disney park hopper which includes a plus day for one of their water parks for around $200. They also have a ticket that gets you 14 days of unlimited admissions to Universal, IoA, Busch Gardens, Sea World, & Wet N' Wild for about $200 as well. Take BG out of that and it is about $175. Single day admissions to most parks down there (excluding water) are a bit over $50. When I went at the end of March, I used this place to get my Disney tickets (they sell the others as well):

EDIT: I forgot that your bf's parents live in Orlando, you should be able to get some pretty good deals on the tickets then. *** Edited 4/20/2004 5:43:14 PM UTC by onceler***
