View Full Version : December Universal/IOA Trip

For those planning a trip to Orlando/Disney do yourself a favor and don't miss Islands of Adventure. My wife, 9 year old son and myself went in early December and had a great time.
Islands of Adventure wasn't on our original itinerary, but it turned out to be our favorite park during our 7 day trip. Our Orlando trip was from 2-9 December which is in my opinion, a perfect time to visit. During our entire visit, the longest wait for any attraction was 15 minutes at the most.

Now for Islands. In the don't miss category are:
The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman, The Incredible Hulk Coaster, Dueling Dragons, Jurasic Park, Dudley Do-Rights Ripsaw Falls and The Eigth Voyage of Sindad show. These attractions in themselves are worth the price of admission.

And when it's time for lunch, I highly recommend a visit to Thunder Falls Terrace for the baby back ribs. Although a little more expensive than your standard park meal, it's well worth it. The food was excellent and plentilful.

More to follow later.
