    Universal Orlando question

    This actually requires a simple answer, but is it possible to take out the two parks in one day? Or is two days recommended? I'm planning a Disney trip, but I want to go to Universal too, so I was just wondering how much time to set aside for it? Thanks!

    Re: Universal Orlando question

    i think it depends on what time of year you want to go and if you wanna pony up for Front of the Line passes

    we went the first weekend in november in 2007 without FoL passes and it took us 2 days to do both parks, but with Harry Potter opening up this year, i imagine both parks in general will be more crowded
    Will there be screams when the sun sets,

    Agreed with Elly, it totally depends on when you are going.

    In order to see everything in the parks and not just go from ride to ride, you need 2 days. Whether or not you want Front of the Line passes depends on the dates. Also, you may want to consider staying at one of the Universal Hotels which include the Front of the Line passes.

    Re: Universal Orlando question

    ^Perfect time for your wanted stay: Last Wednesday of September/ First Wednesday of October.

    Why? Student crowds will in semester by now, yet weekend crowds may still be a tassel. Still suspect 10-20 waits for Jaws, JP, Simpsons & Spiderman as they will be the most popular. Rock It! & the Harry Potter rides will be 30 mins waits or over easily.

    Re: Universal Orlando question

    TOTALLY doable, depends on how long you want to wait in outdoors lines. That time of yer it wont be as horrible as the summer, eat or crowd-wise. You could do them both in 1day, esp because you might not want to the water rides in IOA.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: Universal Orlando question

    You could do all of the headline attractions (excluding Wizarding World) in a single day with an Express pass, but I don't recommend rushing if you want the full experience.

    Also, if you go on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday in your given timeframe, USF will be closing at 5:00 for HHN.

    Re: Universal Orlando question

    I was able to do both parks in one day as long as your get the one park when it first opens. I was able to do Universal in about 3 hours. Keep in mind i am from Cali and i didnt do the things that are in Cali. It is much better at the other park. But HP was not open yet. So i think if you want to explore the parks, two days is a must. If your there for horror night, they do the best over there.

    Re: Universal Orlando question

    I'd take 2 days to enjoy the full experience - some of the theming at both parks is outstanding.
    Also, if you go late Sept/early Oct then you may find one of the parks closing early for HHNs.
