Swimming at the All Star Resort

May will be slightly different, but as a guide of how much you can get done at Universal on a quiet day we went on Oct 31st this year. We entered the park about 08.30, we left about 14.30. In that time we rode Gringotts, Hogwarts Express, MIB, Simpsons, Mummy, Transformers, Jimmy Fallon, Forbiddon Journey, Jurassic Park, Sprider Man and The Hulk. We were also in the queue for Kong for 25 mins before it broke down. We also stopped for a lunch at Hogsmeade and whilst we did rush a bit, we still stopped to look around areas and shops as we were with somebody that had never been before.

If May is anywhere near as quiet as this then you could get away with a 2 day ticket I would imagine. Im not sure on currently, but there are promotions at various points of the year where you can get 2 free days when you buy a 2 day ticket etc. That should give you plenty of time to do both parks at a slower pace and Volcano Bay and be a bit cheaper than a 14 day ticket.

Next year Memorial Day is on 28th May, so you'll miss these crowds.

Also really wanna visit kennedy space centre.
I believe any of the 3-Park Seaworld tickets allow you to use the free coach transfer to Busch Gardens.

If you're doing the 3 Universal parks, 3 Seaworld parks, Discovery Cove and Kennedy Space Centre then that's going to be a busy 10 days!

You can get 2, 3, or 4 day tickets to the Universal parks. You can get them from places like OrlandoAttractions.com here:


Or from UndercoverTourist.com (here), or from Universal's American website (here) or at the entrance to any of the Universal parks.

To give you an idea of price, a 3-Park 4-Day Base ticket (only one park per day, can visit Volcano Bay) costs $269 or 202 from OrlandoAttractions.

Hi, we have 10 days st cabana bay in May with annual universal passes, we plan 3 days for universal and 2 for volcano bay, then a shopping, busche, seaworld and a chill day, each day is packed full however if you do have some time you could choose one Disney park on a magic your way ticket, we plan on doing that in October as then we plan on staying in Disney itself.
