Itinerary Overview

Orlando and Tampa are recognized for their amazing amusement parks, and we got the opportunity to visit four of them! First of all we went to Disney's Hollywood Studios where we spent a whole day, the next day we visited Disney's Magic Kingdom and it was an unforgettable experience, a few days later we went to Universal Studios Florida where we had a great time, and finally we traveled all the way to Tampa to visit Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and ZooTampa at Lowry Park. Every single park offered us a very different but equally enjoyable experience and it was absolutely worth it. Some of the important advice I could give when it comes to visiting theme parks is waking up early so you can make the most out of your day, also take some snacks with you like homemade sandwiches and a couple water bottles and most important of all, use some comfortable shoes.

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    Maybe I would have bought the Fast Pass at some of the parks because you do lose a lot of time on the waiting lines.

  • How was the food?

    It is part of the experience to try some of the famous treats/snacks of the parks but it could be a bit expensive to have a full meal there, so I would recommend bringing your own snacks just so you don't get hungry during the day

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Wake up a bit early, the day will go faster than you think.

  • Packing tips?

    It really depends on the season, But you should always take some comfortable shoes with you.

  • Transportation Tips?

    All of the parks had a great parking system so you should be able to park your car just fine.
