Hi guys...we are a couple of Aussies touring around the eastern side of USA in November and are in Miami for a few days - 5 actually. We have planned a Key West day tour during this time, but are looking to go to Orlando for a couple of days mainly to see The Kennedy Space Centre and Universal Islands of Adventure. We have made enquiries with a tour company that will do this trip for a reasonable cost by bus, but the overnight hotel is somewhat dodgy ( according to trip advisor reviews).
My question is I guess, how easy is this two day stay to organise ourselves or is it easier to go with a tour company. I'm mindful that a train takes 5 hours, plane takes 1 hour and the local bus companies don't come recommended.
Maybe someone out there has had some experience with this, unfortunately we don't have anymore time to spend at theme parks so are making the most of it!
Any suggestions gratefully accepted!!
