what parks?

Hi there going to orlando the last week in sept and the first in oct. We have 14 day Ultimate Disney passes and busch gardens passes. Also planning heading out to the Kennedy Space Centre. Just wondering if there will be time to do universal and seaworld as well? Its just hubby and me and neither of us have been before. And advice/hints on how to survice the disney mania would be fab! Thanks

Hi karrie

We went over Easter and bought 14 day passes too, we had kids with us but still spent

2 days at Magic Kingdom

2 days at Epcot

2 days at Animal Kingdom

1 day at MGM

2 half days at Typhoon Lagoon

Having spent a lot of money on the tickets we decided to get good use out of them and leave Universal for another visit. We did spend a full day at Seaworld aswell and took an overnight trip to the gulf coast, with a couple of rest days that was the 2 weeks gone (sob sob).

We found staying off Disney property a good idea to escape the mania and spread out the non-Disney days so you don't get "parked-out", eg 2-3 days at the parks then Kennedy, another 2-3 days then Busch Gardens etc...

Hope this helps, wish I was back there now....

Since you are going during a slower/less crowded time of year, you should be able to get through the Disney parks and Busch Gardens, Kennedy, etc., and still have time to do two days at Universal.

Taking one day for each Disney park is 4 days, one day each for the two Universal parks, one day for Busch Gardens, and one day for Kennedy give you a total of 8 days.

Then, you'll still have 5 or 6 days in-between to rest up and do other things too.
