Sorry Nimbus yes that's what I meant.

I'm looking to go 10th May til 20th May so hopefully that'll mean I miss memorial day crowds?

After reading through all your replies and then checking trip advisor I think I definitely want to get the discovery cove ultimate ticket and that way make use of their free transfer to busch gardens. Anyone used this?

Also really wanna visit kennedy space centre.

Is there a cheaper way of getting universal tickets without buying the 14 days one? I'm just wondering if I can save money there if you all seem to think it can be done rather quickly and easily.

The free coach to BG leaves from outside Seaworld. If you look at SW front entrance, it is away to the left. Easy to find.

Lol my kids are 14 and 8yr old boys

My eldest doesn't like rides had to be forced on most of the Disney ones and my youngest loves them but isn't tall enough for most.

Unfortunately I am not in a position to take them out of school again. We just did 15 days out of school in November as a one off. Nor could I afford to take us during school holidays.

I do plan on returning in the future when the youngest is tall enough and by then my eldest will have left high school and got his exams out the way maybe by then he'll like rides more.

It's just a rare opportunity that's presented itself, babysitter, money etc. Plus I met my partner when my first son was 3yrs old only had two holidays in 11 years together and both with children in tow so would be very much appreciated.

Hopefully that'll present a good case when my 8 yr old presses charges 😝

The other alternative is somebody showed me Moon Palace in Cancun 😍 I could only afford 7 nights but it looks amazing. Just worried about perhaps getting bored after such an active Disney holiday?!

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.

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:

orlandoattractions/t...dios-worldwide

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.
