goto islands of adventure, and maybe universal... avoid the other parks, unless you just want to see them all.

Yeah...don't do the older Universal portion...it's nothing but those movie rides and that gets old after a while.

Yep it's just a lot of motion simulators. Men In Black was the only intersting ride at Universal. Islands of Adventure is great.

3 nights you won't make much headway at Disney...might want to save that for next time if you've never been there.

You could spend 10 days in Disney and probably STILL not do everything. I was there 7 days last summer and didn't even touch any of the water parks...and that was like my 4th time there. I still wished I had another week!

Definitely go on the Spiderman ride at Islands of Adventure. At the Disney MGM park Test Track is really fun too.

Test Track is at EPCOT, actually. It's very close to Misson: Space which is the new motion sim, also a great ride.

Oops! LOL. I've been there several times but hell all of the parks blend together. I haven't been there since the Mission ride was introduced but I hear it's great as you said.

Univeral studios just opened the new "Revenge of the Mummy" ride last week, and I liked it a lot. It's easily the best ride at that park, though that's not saying much. MIB and Shrek 4D are the only other decent rides.

IOA has the best roller coaster type rides, but there aren't a whole lot of them just 5 or 6 decent rides.

I like EPCOT a lot too, it's more "educational fun" than "thrill fun". Some people think it's boring, but I could eaisly spend two days there. Plus the food there is really good.

No, it's owned by Universal.

I would suggest hitting the 2 Universal parks instead of the Disney ones. Magic Kingdom is lame if you're over 6 years old, Animal Kingdom smells like sh!t (literally), MGM is boring. Epcot is the only decent one, but I prefer the thrill rides at IOA over the stuff at Epcot.
