    I just cancelled my 2-night reservation at HRH because my husband doesn't want to stay at two different hotels. Since we'll be staying at WDW and visiting USF/IOA as day guests - I plan to avoid the early entry park days, as well as Saturday. IOA has early entry on Monday and Wednesday; USF's is on Sunday and Thursday.

    I have heard Sundays are pretty good at IOA.

    Nancy,
    When you cancelled HRH, did they charge you the $25.00 per person fee?
    Wondering because our family will be back down in Florida over Thanksgiving and we were planning to catch a nite or two at PBH (see the Grinch). I am worried about committing a paticular nite as of yet because, I was under the immpression there is a 25.00per person cancell fee.

    Thanks in advance,
    Valarie

    Valarie, when I made the reservation, I was told the cancellation deadline was 5 days before arrival to avoid losing my one-night's deposit. I think the $25/person fee is for packages.

    Sunday morning. I live near by IOA/USF and whenever I want to go to the park this is my "quiet time".

    On 1 Sunday I was able to do:
    1) Hulk
    2) Dr. Doom
    3) Spider-Man
    4) JP River Adventure
    5) Trike Ecounter
    6) Poseidon's Fury
    7) Dueling Dragons (both sides)
    8) Cat in the Hat

    All in 1 hour and 55 minutes including walking time. No Universal Express, NO FOTL.

    What month was that Sunday in? I don't think I could walk to each of those attractions in an hour and 55 minutes, much less do them to. You must have some sort of training regimen you follow?

    I did'nt know that they had early entry days. IS that only if you are staying at one of UN/IOA hotels? Or you just have to have a multi-day pass? We are camping and staying at FW, and we will be going to UN and IOA during our stay. And I knew nothing of early entry.

    I live about 25 minutes away. I did this in October 1999 the park was only open for about 5 moths and I was alone.

    I walk extremely fast when and I am by myself (wife hates theme parks, kids are sick of going)

    P.S. By walk time I meant from ride to ride; not from home.

    I could probably walk from ride to ride in that amount of time, but I would probably get a cramp. :)

    P.S.S. 1h 55m was from the time I entered the IOA until the time I walked out the gate.
