My family and I will be visiting Universal Orlando during the very busy spring break season. We will be staying on site and will have early entry as well as unlimited express. On the days we will be touring, the crowd levels are expected to be 9-10. I know our family can handle either getting there for early entry at (gulp) 7 AM…OR we could stay for the late closing time of 10 PM. However, there is no way we can handle going to the parks for the early entry and late evening, even if we had a mid-day break with a nap. My 4-year-old just couldn’t do it, daytime nap or not. So, do you think it’s a better strategy to go early or go late?
In the go early strategy, we would probably get there at 7 AM to the EE park, take a break from 1-4 PM, then go back to the park and stay until 8 PM. In the stay late strategy, we would probably get there at 9 AM, take a break from 3-6 PM, then go back to the park until 10 PM. Which scenario would you prefer if you were touring on a crowd level 10 day with 3 kids?
