Mobile Orlando First-time...

Hi,

I've never been to Orlando, but I have been desperate to visit the Universal Parks since I was little!

Me and my partner are finally looking into booking something in late September, early October 2020.

We have 3 mains things on the list, Universal, Island of Adventure and Kennedy, and looking at an approx 5 day stay.

Are there any do's or don'ts for us first timers please? I'm feeling a little overwhelmed at the minute 🙈

5 days isn't a long time in Orlando, however in 5 days I would suggest.
1 day - Universal Studios
2 day - Islands of Adventure
3 day - Head to both parks to ride anything you didn't get the chance do.
4 day - Volcano Bay (Universal's water park)
5 day - Kennedy

Also, check out Halloween Horror Night tickets - amazing event at Universal

I'd recommend staying on International Drive close by to Universal.

That's fab thanks for the advice, that's really helpful! We've no firm plans as such so could do up to 7 days to be honest. The water parks aren't on our radar really. I have seen some mini golf which looks good though, I'm a massive kid at heart!

Thanks for the heads up on the Halloween stuff too will have a look.
