Are the layouts of US and IOA easy to find rides/attractions?

    We went to US back in 1998 and don't really remember if it is an easy park to get around and find your way in. Are the US and IOA parks big?? We know everything Disney but want to venture outside and visit some other parks this coming Jan. trip. Thanks.

    I think both of the parks are relatively easy to naviagte. IOA is pretty easy since it's one big cirle. The new Harry Potter construction makes it a little tricky, but I believe there are signs/TMs to help you naviage thru.

    US is a little tricker than IOA since it's not a big circle. If you just stick to the perimeter of the park you'll hit all the attractions. They have some cut-through paths that make it easy to get from one side to the other.

    The parks aren't small, but they aren't huge either. Probably a little bigger than Hollywood Studios.

    Have fun on your trip!

    check out the layout of the parks on the universalorlando.com website.

    you can plan your day in advance to hit the rides and shows you enjoy most or want to try for the first time.

    why wait until you get to the park for the map guide.
    you can find out now where everything is located.

    once you are at the universal website, click orlando, then click on parks

    IOA is a breeze, although I do get a little confused in Toon Lagoon sometimes.

    USF is also easy to navigate. Most of the attractions are on the outer ring of the park and there are plenty of shortcuts from one side of the park to the other.

    Good luck!

    YES this does. Thanks. So they are easy to get from one to the other. When we last went there was only US.
