Never been: 2 parks in one day?

hey everyone. My family is visiting florida the 2nd week of April. We'll be staying in Daytona. We would like to see Universal because we've been to Disney a few times. My question is, do i need to buy a 2 day pass? If so, do i need the hoppers? It is 4 adults, but I am concerned about doing the drive two days in one week. We will have other family back at the rental home, so i want to enjoy the beach with them and have time to relax. I wish we could see it all in one day, but I am sure April is not a slow season. Any thoughts if this can be done? Thank you!

buy a one day ticket and before you leave the park that day, decide if you want to return for a second day.

if you do, upgrade your one day ticket to a two day ticket.

it will be cheaper than buying two separate one day tickets.

also, if you decide you have done everything you want to see in the park, and have time left over, you can upgrade to a one day 2 park ticket.

this can be done at guest services.

you will find crowds in
April in the parks.

Easter is March 31st but some schools do spring break in April.

if you buy your park one day ticket in advance, this will save time for when you arrive in the park.
if you buy your ticket when you arrive at UO, it can be time consuming.
life is what happens to you on your way to achieving your dreams...........

My cousin lives in Daytona, and has been known to make that drive *more* than twice in a week. She used to do it for WDW, and now she's doing it for Universal. So if you did drive out again, you would not be the only one to do it.
