    Mice rule universal drools

    Trip tip: if you're going to both Disneyland and Universal (perhaps with a Citypass) do Uni first. You'll be less disappointed that way!

    just beware that you must visit the park you purchase the Citypass from first.

    Ill provide all the gory details in our trip report.

    Yes Disney does Beat them in rides,ect. But Universal has this feel you can only get there. Maybe because it is a working studio...

    The feel was that of dirt & grime topped with rude, unhappy employees.

    Wow that's a shame. Usually when I'm there for a visit way more than at Disney the employees are friendly and the park is much cleaner than Disney actually.

    Re: Mice rule universal drools

    I love me some Universal Studios Hollywood (I'm going tomorrow in fact, and I can't wait). I do agree that Disney is superior when it comes to theme parks but Universal is still awesome. The real working studio is something Disney doesn't offer (no, I don't count Hollywood Studios in Florida) and it's fantastic. Disney may have the yet hand in theme parks but their film legacy is, without a doubt, inferior to Universal's. Sorry you didn't have a good time.

    Re: Mice rule universal drools

    I always come back with mixed feelings about Universal. I enjoy visiting, but my biggest complaint is their lack of offerings. I can spend 5 days in DLR and barely feel satiated. After three hours in Universal I'm looking for my car keys. Don't get me wrong, they do a lot of things right, but they need to offer more to the tourist to keep them there for more than a few hours...

    I agree. This should change once Potter opens. I'm anxiously awaiting that day.

    if you buy the citypass at the front gate of universal studios you can use it at any park because we activate them at the booths for you. websites are different story for all of the parks.

    I agree with the order of doing these parks, but for different reasons.

    Walking.

    I've never been sore from all the walking I did at Universal, it's a warm up for DL at best.

    Re: Mice rule universal drools

    When my husband and I first started dating he had never been to Disneyland. I took him once and he had a great time. The next time we wanted to go to a theme park he suggested two days at Universal since they were having a buy one, get two deal. We spent the first day at Universal and had fun, but we did not end up using the second day and went back to Disneyland instead. We actually haven't been back to Universal since...that was seven years ago. I do want to go to Universal Orlando, however.

    well, it's more of a studio than it is a theme park. the studio section is very huge. They film a few DISNEY movies at Universal Studios. It's funny they filmed Pirates at Universal and not DL.
