Hi, We are planning our first visit to universal Orlando. We are four, 2 kids 13 and 11. We come from Belgium and are staying 18 days in Orlando. In 2010 we visited WDW and seaworld + BG. My wife and oldest daughter are harry Potter fans. And this time we want to concentrate fully on universal. Our plan is to stay in cabana bay Beach resort. Take the 14 day explorer tickets for 3 parks. No rental car. One concern to us is the food budget, if you stay 2 or 3 days you can go a bit crazy but not for 18 days. Breakfast in the room, sharing entrees in the park. Have some diners in eateries in the area. Another concern is 18 days universal, is this to much? We plan to arive on 12th August 2019, and we want to relax. Fist a day at the pools, pool hopping maybe. Second day go to the outlet stores, and relax afterwards at the pool. Maybe visit city walk. On day 3 we start our 14 day tickets. With 14 days at the parks, we dont have to be there at rope drop every day. Depending on the crowds, maybe 3 or 4 days. Every day we will take a break from 12u to 16 to 17u. Go to the pool, and relax. Maybe going to vulcano bay after a morning in the parks. Maybe Some days we start at volcano bay, relax a bit in the room and the have a relaxed evening in the parks. We could save some money by staying off site and use a rental car, and use that saving for seaworld an bush gardens. I dont think it is worth it for us, staying on site should give us a more relaxing vacation. The new all Summer resort is also an option but there is a good chance that there will still be constructions going on. We would appreciate any feedback so we can make it a vacation to remember.
