We already bought our tickets, which are one day-two park passes. I just have a few questions:
Which park should we go to first since we have only one day?
What rides are not worth more than a 45 minute wait?
What is the best resturant at CityWalk?
How wet do you get on Jurassic Park?
Thanks in advance for your opinions, even though some of you may think these are stupid questions. I did a search on this topic though and I didn't see it.
I loved Bob Marley's.
You dont get that wet on Jurasic Park.
It's one of a kind.

The longest lines when I was their were for spiderman and dueling dragons. I can also say that the Mummy is worth the wait. I rode it 35 times in 4 days and it was great everytime.
I think back to the Future is worth skipping simply because the ride has not aged well and the simulation just makes you want to puke now.
The Vanhelsing exhibit at the Monster Makeup show is also a good bet to see. You can just walk in and see those exhibits and they stay for the show.
Shreck, Jaws, MIB, T23D, Jimmy Neutron all had short lines no longer than 20 minutes.
As always with USF the first ride that everyone goes to is the Mummy. At Islands of Adventure it is Hulk or Spiderman, so plan accordingly.
Most of all have fun!!!!!
Universal gets a lot more crowded than IoA mainly because of all of the kids attractions, movie stuff, and indoor rides. If the weather sucks, there is still tons to do on the Universal side.
The best thing to do, from past experience when going during peak times like spring break, is to go to IoA and first go to Spiderman and get an express pass, ride hulk (if the line isnt already long) and then go around the park counter-clockwise through the kids (Seuss) section first. Most of the crowd takes an immediate left to Hulk and Spiderman in the morning so those rides get ridiculously long lines.
By the time you make it around the park and back to Spiderman, the crowds should be more dispersed. Don't worry about hitting the exact timeframe for your express pass - you can use it any time after the beginning of your time segment. And remember, you can get a new express pass at any ride once your first one expires, even if you didnt use it yet (or maybe after the beginning time, im not sure) - this would be good to do for either Duddley or Bluto since they get long lines in warm weather. Jurassic is a people-eater so I wouldn't get an express for it - and you get misted and little drops of water on that ride most of the time so no worries about getting wet.
Personally, if I were bringing anyone who hadn't been to either park, I would do what I suggested for IoA, then go to Universal afterwards and hit as much as I could there.
A great way to end the day would be to ride Mummy - you can get in line up until the park closes but be sure not to miss it, it is a must ride. But I love the ride so much I would need two rides AT LEAST :).

There is one catch to the Express Pass when doing both parks in one day. They charge you a separate Express Pass fee for each park. No discount for combining the two.
Prepare to be exhausted at the end of the day.
