First timer... Three days

Hello, this will be our first real trip to Universal Studios...
We went in 2007 during our WDW trip, but didn't really get to experience all that we could have since we shared both US and IOA in one afternoon before flying home the next day...

We are getting a package which gives us 3 day base tickets.
For the experts, how should we spread them. Should IOA take 2 days?
Should we do Wet n Wild? Or just focus on the theme parks?

We really just want to get a feel for the place since WDW prices are out of our family's vacation budget.

So, yes. How should we spread out our 3 days?

Thanks in advance for anyone's help!

I wouldn't decide until I'd done a day at each park. I wouldn't do Wet 'n Wild.

If you could I would upgrade to the park to park ticket. This way you can bounce between parks. If one park seems a little crowded you can easily head over to the other park. We did it last year and found we really utilized this option.

It's really a quick walk between parks and if there is a show or attraction you want to experience a few times (like Harry Potter) you can bounce back and do it again.

also, if you have not booked the package yet but still deciding, book the onsite room and tickets from ut separately.

less restrictions and you will come out ahead financially.
