I have never wasted my FPs on waterpark days. I think we get the most out of the day by going to the waterpark early (we find long queues for rides after the first hour or two) and then sing the fastpasses in the afternoon.

We are flexible about length of days so will figure out more detailed timings once park hours are released and I find out if I get the ADRs Im after
Park hours for August were released 2 weeks ago. I agree with Claudette though, go to the waterparks early doors, and to a park in the evening so book FP's for late afternoon/evening. The more the holiday goes on the more the late nights get easier.

Honestly as someone who has been in August with kids, do not under estimate the impact the heat & humidity has on little people. I wouldn't want to push them too much in the first few days... grumpy hot kids do not make for a fun holiday lol, always good to allow some flexibility in the plans.

Weve been a few times in August with our kids. Id echo what others say. its very hot and we never managed full days. (park open to close) Also if this is your first trip with kids do you need universal? its a lot of extra cash to fork out when disney on its own will keep you more than occupied. I understand if this will be your one and only trip, as universal is great. depending on their heights they might not be able to take full advantage of the rides available.
