Mobile Florida without Disney itinerary help please

We are going for 2 weeks at start of July. Kids are 19,17 and 13 and have said they only want to do universal, so Iíve got universal park 14 day ticket. Can anyone suggest an itinerary for 14 days please. Thanks

Depends what sort of stuff you like to do and your budget. Beach and dolphin spotting boat trip, state park, kayaking, fishing, Celebration Segway tour, Kennedy Space Centre, Disney Springs, Mount Dora, Winter Park, flea market, shopping.

Hi
I would get together with the kid's & pen in a rough plan for starters.
How many Universal park days out of 14?
As Queen of Herts has said, what other attractions would your family like to do & fit in between some park days etc. (Would recommend Discovery cove with or without Dolphin experience)
Once you have a rough plan then ask fellow Dibber's again for their views & thoughts on it etc.
Lot's of Dibber's will love to help once they have a bit more info.

No itinerary needed

Pure bliss
Get up and do whatever you want !

Perfect

We found getting in early helped with Queues then out in the afternoon to a restaurant of your choice and pool time.
We also went to the beach in the afternoons stayed for a few Days in Clearwater.

Would definitely recommend some days at the beach if you havenít already got accommodation sorted. Weíre going back to Florida for the fourth time and one trip was no parks at all, and one was universal, Sw, DC, BG and AQ which left lots of rest days to do airboat ride, cycle at celebration and lazy villa time

I am inclined to agree with the poster that suggested no plan is needed. I really don't think it is for a primarily Universal trip.

We only do Universal now too, key for us is avoid parks at weekends and do other stuff. As you have time to go in when they are quieter. Our teens live Dave & Busters arcade, Shooting World, shopping, mini golf and basketball game ..so much to do.

This is exactly our plan as first timers

I don't agree with no plan. If you are still sat around the breakfast table at 9.30am trying to make a decision then you have lost the plot. You have spent a lot of money and travelled over 4000 miles to sit around the table.

We are doing Orlando without Disney, albeit with a 7 year old, so our plan is might looking very different to yours. (Just posted our itinerary in this group)

I would work out roughly how many days you want to spend at Universal and then have a think about what else you want to do. Kennedy Space Center might be interesting or perhaps an airboat tour?
