    First time universal, August for 18 days

    We already did a 21 day Disney holiday in Orlando. So we have a good idea of what to expect. Last season we had annual passes at phantasialand and went at least 8 times (it's a 3 hour drive for us). So is 14 day's ticket to parks a lot, yes it is. But we love theme parks. And in Florida, we do...

    First time universal, August for 18 days

    Today I saw that the std room cabana bay is the same price as the 2 bedroom room in endless summer. There are also cheaper food options close to the resort. More floorspace and a table for four. Also a microwave. But will the transportation be as good? Will it be completely finished by then?

    Taron is a thrill ride, but not an immersive ride. The JP coaster will be much closer to taron then the new HP coaster. Kluheim (where taron is located) is the best themed zone you can find in europe, including a table service restaurant where everything is themed. The decor, the table and...

    First time universal, August for 18 days

    14 days in april 2020 is also an option for us. Then we are 100% shure that the HP coasters will be open. Climat is better. And one day Disney for StarWars land is then a must for me. We only go once every 5 years to another continent. So do both is not an option.

    First time universal, August for 18 days

    It is a good sugestion to have some lunches in the other hotels in the resort. With some research we can find some affordable options. Leaving the park at none and eat lunch at portofino in the pizzeria sound actualy verry good. Eating a pizza in an Italian themed hotel, nice. Quality should be...

    First time universal, August for 18 days

    We should consider to take a siësta and sleep a couple of hours during the hottest time of the day. Will make it easier to go to the parks early.

    First time universal, August for 18 days

    Thanx for the food tips. Sit down restaurants sound expensive but in reality it is almost the same cost as standing in line for food and hoping you find a good table. Can you use the refil cups in those restaurants? For my WDW visit I used tour guide Mike site. The basics are the same, get in...
