If you are staying onsite at Universal resorts, you will have a great time. If you are staying offsite, I suggest you go to Seaworld or Busch Gardens. You will be standing in line watching the hotel guests get on the rides. This happened to me this past weekend. Spiderman had 90 - 150 minute wait times. Hotel guests are rushing by in the express line. It was awful. When the new hotel opens this summer, it will be worse yet. IOA and USF are great parks ONLY if you stay onsite. Offsiters, save yourself the aggravation.
