[QUOTE=llama;1083047]Personally, I enjoy Universal/IOA. I don’t compare them to Disney; they stand alone on their own merits and they have some fantastic attractions. You can’t beat Spiderman, Men in Black and Harry Potter stands on its own. I always wonder if I’m in the same park as others who criticize it. I’ve heard peope say it’s “dirty”, the employees are “rude”, etc., but we’ve never run across any of this. I don’t know why so many feel that if you’re Disney fans, you can’t enjoy any other kind of amusement park. I like Sea World and Busch Gardens too.
I love Disney, but sometimes I need a little break from being “Disney’d” 24/7. Universal isn’t “magical”, but it’s no slouch in fun.[/QUOTE]
I agree that the two can’t be compared. I enjoy US/IOA very much for what they are. The attractions are so different than the ones at WDW that I don’t even see how they can be compared. The Mummy and Spiderman are my absolute favourites! And when we go this year I’m sure the whole Wizarding World of Harry Potter will be up there on my list!
