OK, Disney nut here finally agreed to try Universal/IOA. I'm excited, but way out of my comfort zone! There are 5 of us: me, DH, DD10, DS4, and DS2. I've booked Portofino Bay for Friday-Tuesday of Labor Day weekend.
Thinking of HP/IOA on Saturday, and US on Sunday.
I'm getting nervous about the two little guys. DS4 is 45 inches. DH and DD10 definitely want to do all the HP stuff and coasters including the ones DS4 is too small/young for- and that's really my problem and question--
If DH and DD10 are going on the big coasters and getting in potentially long lines, is there enough for me to do with DS4 and DS2 together while we are waiting? As an example, at MK we'll do the teacups or Buzz while DH and DD are on Space Mountain or at HS we'll do the Toy Story ride while they are on ToT. The boys will be happy to be at the parks, but you can only kill so much time eating popcorn while you suffer from the injustice of your older, taller sister having fun...
I'm sure we'll regroup and do some of the rides DS4 can do without DS2 but it doesn't seem like there are that many for his age.
Which brings me to my last thought (for now)- what to do Monday?
Should I consider driving to MK or should I just do the Universal parks in the morning and maybe the pool if it gets crazy crowded?
