    Hi everyone! I'm arriving Feb.6th on a Friday at around 12 or 1pm. Which park do you guys think is best to do on a half day. The studios or IOA? Also, how are the crowds in Feb? Thanks in advance. :)

    had for me to say which would be best.
    mardi gras is on saturday and don't know if the beginning weekend will have crowds.

    considering fri/sat/sun a weekend

    if you are staying on site, you would have the fotl and not be concerned about ride line crowds.

    i have found that friday afternoons have more people in the parks than the other days of the week.

    Are you bringing any children? If you are bringing children, I may suggest IOA over US. Seussland, and the overall theming may be a bit more fun for them.

    Good luck with your decision.

    No kids this trip. Just the husband and I. I think we might do IOA that Friday and the Studios on Sat. Thanks for the advice everyone!

    crowds aside, studios seems easier navigate the way it's laid out imo
