Hello my name is Mitch, I am going to Universal Studios and Islands of adventure for the first time on Friday with my wife and child. I have never been there before, I go to Disney World about twice a year, but now that my daughter is a bit older I figured I would give Universal a shot (plus I love the simpsons). It would be great if some of you veterans of universal would be kind enough to give me some tips to make my trip more enjoyable. My family and I would greatly appreciate it. I am going to be staying at Cabanna Bay volcano view room from October 19 till the 23rd. I have a four day three park ticket that includes universal express pass +for every day. I think I’m going to go to Islands of adventure the first day and then go to Universal Studios first thing in the morning on Saturday. Any tips on what rides to hit first or great places to grab something to eat would be greatly appreciated ( I also have the dining plan). Thank you in advance, I look forward to enjoying this wonderful forum!
