I really like it. But I'm more of a Disney fan. We are going to US for 2 days this is my 3rd trip. I actually really like it at christmas because they have grinchmas. I wouldn't miss it if I were you. Id try it atleast once. You can get 2 day tickets at costco for $64 w/no block out dates. Enjoy your trip!

It's a lot smaller than the FL one. But as GenGen22 said, the tickets are cheap, so if you never been, might as well try it out at least once. We went in Feb right as the park opened and finished everything and saw all shows in less than a day.

CityWalk is not bad if you are there on a Friday or Saturday night.

I don't know if they have a costco there. I got mine at the Costco in San Jose, CA (northern CA) I would keep checking costco.com to see if they sell them online or try to visit a costco near you. You can look up their locations from their website. I have read on here that you do not need a membership to order online. Can anyone confirm this? I have a memberships so, I have no clue..

I bought US tickets at the Costco just north of DL last summer. Think I saw them in San Diego too. I would think most Costco's in the area would carry most tickets. I've got SeaWorld and LEGOLAND tickets there in the past.
Is it worth going to US?
I say yes. We went last summer and really enjoyed it.

We are debating visiting Universal Studios. Do you think it is worth a visit with a 8 year old that scares easily? He loves BTMR and Star Tours but still hided his eyes on Indiana Jones. We looked at the rides online but still not sure.
