Newbie to Universal here, looking for some info to start my planning. Massive HP fans all around (my daughter shares a name with my favorite HP character) but also huge fans of dinosaurs and kitsch.
We are going to US/IOA April 8th and 9th as part of a Disney/Universal trip. The 8th is a full, open to close day, we hope, and the 9th we leave in the late afternoon and return to the Disney area for dinner.
Park opening at 9 - how early should we pull up to the entrance? We are Lyft/Ubering from a Disney hotel. We don’t need to be first and storm the doors but we do want to get a lot done that first day, especially WWOHP. We have 2-park passes both days, and don’t plan on Express passes unless the crowds are out of control.
For fun, Tell me your top three or five must dos list. Maybe one for coasters and one for other types of rides or attractions? I love all roller coasters and can single rider a lot, because husband and DD7 will do things that spin and I won’t. My daughter is 52", and she and my husband don’t do loopy or extreme rollercoasters. Both have done and enjoyed every Disney coaster except RNR in DHS, with BTMRR being all of our favorite.
