Where to Stay
There was a quaint little “tiki bar” at the end of the park that offered karayoke and refreshments on Friday & Saturday nights which was a fun place to meet and greet fellow RVers and was amazing people watching!
Universal & Islands of Adventure
We were annual pass holders to Universal and Islands of Adventures (not as much of Disney fans with the exception of Epcot) which made visiting the park super enjoyable for us. We were able to go when the crowds were minimal (random afternoons after work or off weekends) and we went more often when the weather was pleasurable vs. summer when it’s disgustingly hot outside. If you like theme parks, we really think this is a must on your to-do list. Harry Potter World alone is worth it! We suggest a two day pass which you could totally bang out in one day if it’s off-season. If it’s peak season, spend one day at each park. While the two park pass is spendy, you’ll get the full experience and have the chance to ride on the Hogwarts express which is AWESOME (can you tell I’m a Harry Potter fan yet?). When you walk through each “land” you feel like you are transported. The ice cream in Harry Potter world is the best! Grab some as you wait in line for their new ride.
Rides worth waiting for
Universal: Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit, Revenge of The Mummy, Men in Black, Despicable Me (if you have kids or really like it), Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts, Hogwarts Express (takes you to the other park)
Islands of Adventures: The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman, Harry Potter & The Forbiden Journey, The Incredible Hulk, Skull Island Reign of Kong Dudley Doo Right’s Rip-Saw (if its hot outside)
There is also City Walk which is an outdoor market that has bars, restaraunts, shops, and events at the entrance of the theme park. We loved having a fun day riding our favorite rides then grabbing a bite to eat and a drink at one of their several unique restuarants.
They hold the Epcot Food and Wine Festival that holds world renowned chefs for a whole month here each year. We love the Avocado Margarita in Mexico, the Beirgarten in Germany, and the food in Japan. The rides at Epcot are also fun. Mission Space actually makes you feel like you’re in your own rocket (literally your stomach will feel it) and blasting off into space. Test Track is fast, exhilarating ride, and Soarin‘ is a virtual ride that allows you to travel throughout the world from above. They also offer nightly fireworks which are beautiful and free to watch if you already have a day pass to Epcot.
