I'm travelling to Orlando on the 26th June (we have 2 kids aged 10 and 8) and we have 9 nights booked from the 3rd July on in a hotel in International Drive. Lots of questions and any help appreciated!
Because it's such a busy time we are thinking of staying onsite at Universal to get the fastpass and skip the queues. Does anyone know whether this is worth doing? Once you are onsite (we are thinking of the Portofino), are you pretty much stuck for dining options or are you close to restaurants offsite too? Would you recommend a car while we are onsite?
How long do you think we should spend there? If less than a week is there somewhere nearby in Florida that might be a nice change of pace from Orlando for a few nights?
