Depends on what you like.

If you prefer eating, drinking, shopping, exploring world sites, and having a few rides thrown in, then EPCOT is the most adult-oriented park.

Although, everything is expensive.

If you have the time I would do all of them. However if you are on limited time and want more thrilling type rides I would go with the two Universal Parks, Busch Gardens and Sea World.

I would choose Universal, Busch Gardens on top and then depending on time and group choose from the rest. I wouldn't do WDW unless you are planning to do a few days there to get best value.

For thrill rides do Universal and IoA, Busch Gardens and SeaWorld. For relaxation do Discovery Cove. For parades and princesses do Disney.

If you've never been, Magic Kingdom is a must for any age.

As others have said, for thrill rides, Uni parks are where you should go.

It all depends, I think the Disney parks, especially Magic Kingdom are nice to visit, Both the Universal parks are amazing, I couldn't go to Orlando without visiting them 2 especially for the bigger rides, the same goes for Busch Gardens, SeaWorld has a couple of really good roller-coasters.

If I could choose which parks to go, I would definality choose Universal Studios and Busch Gardens, you really can't go wrong with them.

I agree with Hoosier Magic Kingdom is a must also Universal/IOA Busch Gardens and you probably will enjoy Epcot.

How many days do you have and what interests the people going? What are the age ranges?
