Universal is fun. There’s more stuff for the high school and college crowd, there. I always have a great time, there (although, it can’t top Disney!).
You can always find Universal discounts somewhere… I suggest just buying your tickets online, though. They’re really cheap, in comparison to Disney.
If you’re staying all night New Year’s, there’s sure to be a rockin’ New Year’s Eve party at CityWalk.
Suessland will be all Christmas-y… get your pic with the Grinch!
Things to know…
Stay on property. It’s the only way, especially around the holidays.
The meal plan is a good deal if you don’t plan on eating much at CityWalk or the resort. CityWalk is the best, though, and I recommend eating the majority of your meals here.
My CityWalk faves are Margaritaville, NBA City, Emeril’s (make ressies), and Bubba Gump’s.
Lockers at Dueling Dragons, The Incredible Hulk, and Revenge of the Mummy are free for two hours. You may not have backpacks on these ride… unless your backpack is too big to fit in the locker. You can, however, wear a fannypack. The lockers are most likely going to appear very crowded. However, push your way through the crowd and go the the back, which is likely to not be very crowded.
Lockers at Toon Lagoon cost $2 per hour. Be sure to keep money with you and put it in a plastic baggy. The machines do not accept wet dollars (my dad jammed up the machine, putting a wet dollar in). They do, however, take credit cards. But I don’t think it’s very smart to keep a credit card with you on water rides. If your money does get wet, you can always go into a restaurant or gift shop and ask to exchange. But never stick a wet dollar in the machine!
