We (family of four with two boys 11 and 14) just returned form Orlando Saturday night after 8 days and 9 nights. We used a friend's time share points for a week at the Hilton Seaworld and I tacked on two extra nights. The days went like this:
Friday- Islands of Adventure full day. 9AM to 8PM open to close. Did Forbidden Journey first thing (wow!) and again later as singles.
Saturday - Magic Kingdom full day. 9AM to 1AM with a three hour break mid day to change hotel rooms (see above). Did TONS after the sun went down.
Sunday - Animal Kingdom 9AM to 5PM open to close. Our biggest pleasant surprise. Everest and Lion King not to be missed. Did Everest a second time 10 minutes to door close and just walked on. Get those Safari FastPasses right away.
Monday - Hollywood Studios 9AM to 5PM with a "hop" to Epcot till 9PM. Did Toy Story first thing. Grabbed 4 FastPasses on the way in and they were sold out by the time our ride ended. Could have skipped Epcot (although I found time for my only beer there) but Spaceship Earth is quite good.
Tuesday - Universal Studios 9ish to about 7. Biggest surprise: The Simpson's ride. None of us care for the show but the ride was great. I was slogging it because picked up a stomach bug which I blamed on the fish and chips at Epcot, but friends at home tell me it might be the water. We drank bottled but did have a couple of glasses of the tap water here and there.
Wednesday - Blizzard Beach 9ish to 5. In theory our rest day. About 8 cars in the lot when we got there after opening. The temperature dropped to the high 70s this day so the locals stayed home and it was just us cold water Canadians and our UK cousins. A great day.
Thursday - Kennedy Space Centre. I am an old school Apollo fan but the way the Atlantis shuttle is presented is a definite WOW. Met with Astronaut Jerry Ross and had a nice conversation.
Friday - Magic Kingdom 11 - 4 and "hopped" to Hollywood Studios until about 7. DW's turn for the stomach bug (the boys had milder forms) so we were moving very slowly. A good idea to escape long lines on a hot day is Mickey's Philharmagic. Stitch is unbelievably bad. Had our fill of MK by this time (I think there's more "Magic" in California) . Back at HS did the Great Movie Ride and repeats of Star Tours.
A quick note to Floridians working for a living in Orlando. We were overwhelmed by the sincere friendliness and kindness everywhere we went. Not just in the theme parks, but in restaurants and even toll booths (a smiling "good morning" at a toll booth? Really?).
All in all a very full trip and I am happy to answer any questions.
