Ok, so my husband and I are taking our (blended) family to WDW for Christmas. We’ve decided to add one day to visit Universal at the end of our trip. This was a bit of an afterthought and now I know we should have planned for more than one day, but it’s done now and one day is all we have.
So I really need some recommendations on what to do. My husband and his two kids were there many years ago but my kids and I have never been. Kids ages are (24, 23, 18, 17, 15, 14, 14, 10).
Getting a one day park to park with Universal Express was going to be $350 per person which was a big no go for us after Disney, so I’m wondering if we should do the regular 1 day park to park pass or just do a one park pass since it will be crowded and we may not realistically be able to visit both parks.
I know basically nothing about Universal Studios or IOA, so I am really hoping you guys can shed some light. We don’t have any huge Harry Potter fans, but it seems like a waste to go and not be able to go to both HP worlds. Thoughts?
Also, what are the best attractions for our group. I checked out the ratings on here and they were pretty helpful, but I think I need to narrow things down if we’re going to try and visit two parks.
Is it even realistic to try both parks? I’ imagine we’ll be pretty darn tired at that point in our vacay, but I don’t want to waste the opportunity to see all things Universal because who knows when we’ll be able to do this kind of vacation again.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks!
