We’ve planned a family trip to Orlando over spring break 2016 (Madness, I konw but nedessary due to constraints around taking kids out of school). I’ve done all the necessary research for my WDW days and have been putting together our touring plans (we are a party of 10, 3 generations) but i think I’ve not really put as much research into Universal.
Catching up now, i am TERRIFIED!!! Blogs talking of 4hr waits for Gringotts, DA full before 9am, No return before 5pm AND the Express passes at that time are $120 EACH! We will be travelling with my parents (in their 60’s) and kids (DD8 DS6 DS5) and We are staying offsite so no early entry. I’m loath to spend $1200 ON TOP of our tickets for express passes but at the same time, DD is SOOOO excited about DA that i dont’ want the holiday of a lifetime to be a disappointment.
Are there ANY tactics to prevent us having to be there at 8am only to wait until 5pm to get into DA and then still have to wait hours for Gringotts??
