We just got home from our week at universal. The whole family agreed that DC was by far our favorite part of the trip! We rented a cabana and felt like it was totally worth it. It was so nice to have a place out of the crowds. And you also have a hostess with it, who will go and get you pretty much whatever you want or need. The dolphin swim was so wonderful, but we all agreed it would be just as nice to go and not do the dolphin swim. We all want to go back when the freshwater exhibit opens, which we were told by staff they are having issues and it has been pushed back to some time in June. My one suggestion is if you want to feed the birds get there early. We didnt go til probably about 11 and they didnt want anything to do with us or the food. If anyone has any questions feel free to ask!
