We have a trip planned for the end of January in the middle of the week. We have been to Disney several times so I know what to expect and how to plan when we go there. However, it has been close to 20 years since DH and I were at Universal so I am not sure what to expect. We have two kids, ages 8 and 9. They are not into big roller coasters but they enjoy most other rides. We have three days to see Universal and IOA. How should we divide our time? How crowded will the parks be at the time of year? What are the can't miss attractions? Do you think I will need to buy the special passes to bypass lines? What restaurants are good choices for lunch with the kids? I know that the parks close by 6 at that time of year so we will probably eat dinner outside of the park and spend our evenings relaxing.
