Me, wife, and 12 year old son looking to drive to Orlando from NC so will have our car and stay at Sunshine Resort 11 because a close family friend says they own a timeshare and we can get a 2-bedroom for a week for $328. I went to Universal and sea world in the 90's but my wife and son have never been. I like the idea of having the car, full refrigerator, extra space, etc. Planning on Seaworld 1 day and possibly Aquatica 1 day since its a cheap add on so that leaves 4 full and 2 half days we have available to do Universal. Is there any reason to avoid the chosen week? With the annual passes I want us to be able to go to Universal a year later for a week's vacation but would like at least 1 or 2 new attractions to do like the new JP ride but what if its not ready at that time? Which annual passes do we need? (need a parking pass or is there a shuttle? Need early entry or fast pass after 4pm? My son probably has slight ADHD that he probably got from my wife and they don't like waiting. Getting 3 premier over seasonal annual passes would add $765 to the cost. Things close to the area to do? Thanks so much everybody for all your great info I have been reading the forum for weeks now.
