FWIW, my DD and I had a great time at the WWoHP, and Dr. Seussland. We didn't do anything else though. The entry area... uh.. port of entry? That was very nicely themed, so maybe the rest of the park isn't so bad.

Well if you must go to IoA instead of Disney, I can suggest a few things. First, the butter beer in Harry Potter is very good. I'm not a drinker, so I had the non-alcoholic frozen kind, but it was yummy...kind of like a butterscotch float and by far my favorite thing in the whole park.
The whole WWoHP area is nice...detailed and interesting. However, the big ride inside Hogwarts isn't available for the Universal express pass. The only option for that ride is the standby line, so be prepared to wait a while. When we were there, it was an hour or more all day.
Personally, my favorite area of the park is Seuss Landing. I think it's the area that reminds me most of Disney. The theming is very cute and whimsical.
I love all the Disney things you were wearing or using when then you had to say they want to go to Universal. If you can't convince them to go to your happy place I hope you at least have fun while you're at that 'other' park.
I'm going to wrap this up here! I got my FL drivers license yesterday--so I suppose the move is officially complete.
I plan to start blogging regularly here: Sleepless in Orlando I'm moving over there because my life isn't always so family friendly and I want to make sure to keep the PassPorter boards appropriate for all ages!
My family needs to read your posts, cuase they all think im crazy for wanting to do the same thing, only Im waiting till daughter and I graduate and I will be 40!!! very inspirational good luck!!!! sounds so exciting!!!!
For those who asked about Theme Park Connection, it's in Winter Garden. I have never been there but they have a web site and sell stuff on ebay. I was thinking about checking them out in October when I hope to have some time on a Saturday (I work 7 days) but thansk for the heads up about the no a/c. that is shocking for around here...
