This is our first trip to Universal and I have no idea what I'm doing! We are going in January and the crowds for the 3 days are: IOA = 2, 3, 8 and USF = 7, 6, 6. I was thinking I would just use a 2-day/2-park plan and revisit our favorites, or stuff we missed on day 3. But looking at the crowds, I definitely want to completely hit IOA on days 1 & 2. USF doesn't seem to matter so much. None of the days have early entry (and we probably couldn't get there anyway being offsite (cannot change that)). We will not be purchasing the express pass.
So what do you think, should I just use the one-day plans for each park? How do I plan for the Hogwarts Express? I'd love to do it both ways. And then how do I plan the 3rd day?
We are 2 adults, but I'm really excited about seeing the HP stuff. I also love all the rides, but DH doesn't do rollercoasters or extreme simulators, so I could use the single line for those. We're also not superfast walkers anymore!
