I know this question has been posted several times, but since its 2013 and I haven't seen much of this since last year, I am going to ask again.
We are traveling to southern california from May 21-29. (It will be my first time!) I am very excited but being pretty clueless about the area I have used this site to help me plan the trip.
Right now I am stuck on what to order in terms of tickets. This is what our schedule looks like so far. We will be at disneyland for four days, Sea world one, and universal for one. I am also thinking of doing the san diego zoo, but am still debating on whether or not I want a "free" day on my vacation. (I have a four year old who I know will love the zoo). It looks like the Citypass may be my best option, but I am still confused on how the upgrades work. I would need to upgrade one more day at disneyland and for the "front of the line pass" at universal. If I upgrade for one more day at disneyland I understand I get a credit of $250, but would I be using the credit for a single day purchase (250-119=paying $131) or a four day parkhopper ticket (275-250=paying $25). If anyone knows any adivice I would really appreciate it.
