    Hi -
    We get into Orlando on Sunday about noon (just driving in from Ft Myer) and staying at RPR. We are thinking about going over to IOA and just riding the water rides and maybe a headliner if lines and time permits. Question - can we ride all the water rides in 2 hours on a Sunday afternoon with FOTL passes?

    Do you think we would have any time to spare then to either ride a headliner or let our DD5 play in the playground areas?

    Also while I'm asking...does Hulk have a single line? If so what would be better....FOTL and child swap OR single line?

    Thanks.

    Being January I'm sure you can do all 3 water rides and probably have time to ride Hulk on the way out. We never bothered with child swap. One of us would ride Hulk with FOTL while our son would ride Storm Force or Spiderman. Then we'd swap and the other parent would use FOTL.

    Yes...should have no trouble riding the water rides with your unlimited EP access. Are you just planning on the parks for two hours or are you going back the next day? IOA closes at 6pm this weekend so you won't have a whole lot of time to do stuff but having the EP access will help.

    You will probably be better to do the Express line for Hulk as the single rider line isn't always open...it depends on the wait times. I mean...you're staying onsite might as well use it...right? ;)

    We will be staying on site in April and IOA does close at 6 then too. Yes in addition to those 2 hours we will spend a full day each at Universal and IOA. My idea was to go to IOA for a few hours to ride the water rides (not worry about getting wet or being wet, then head back to the hotel for a swim. Then when we go on our full day skip the water rides.

    We always use one morning to put on our suits, sandles, and ride the 3 water rides over and over until about noon. Then we head back to RPR to get showered up and return to IOA for the rest of the rides.
