Sorry in my first post I meant either Disney Studios or Universal - thing is we can ride to the Disney parks for free and dont have a car, and would have to get from a Disney hotel to Universal and back....

Man I love that place, would go every year if I could...and would stay for longer than 4 days. Unfortunately it's "too expensive." :(

Anyway, as far as tips go, remember that FastPass is your best friend. Seriously. There's a lot to do (especially at EPCOT), and you don't want to wait in line for 60 minutes just to ride test track; unless you're getting there REALLY early (as in, right when it opens), you're better off getting a fastpass, doing something else that has less of a line, then going back to the ride. I'm specifically thinking of MGM Studios here because EPCOT is more of a cultural center than a theme park--Tower of Terror and that Rockin' Roller Coaster at MGM are always packed.

Of course, I've never been in December so I don't know about the crowd situation this time of year, but I can't imagine it would be very different.

Oh, and if you do go to EPCOT, stay away from the spaceship ride (not the big ball, the one best Test Track), unless you a) have taken about sixteen pills of dramamine or B) wish to develop a crippling case of claustrophobia.

Which hotel you staying at?

they have another "slowed down" version of mission space at epcot....which is less of a PITA.....although....i say dont be a pussy.....the ride is insane...you know its bad when they have puke bags accomidating everyones seat lol

inovations is cool at EPCOT......you can ride a segway.....play some new games...and get involved in some cool poo...

the great movie ride is cool at disney hollywood studios....also if your a disney history guy that likes the behind the scenes stuff....go to walts dream or something like that....you see a documentary of walt disneys life, see cool stuff, then you can sit in with a disney animator and learn how to draw some of the characters.

go on space mountain at magic kingdom....they refurbished it....so i would check it out

Man I'd love to do Space Mountain, I wonder, do they have lower priced tickets for night visitors? We get in at 4PM Friday afternoon so maybe a Friday night visit to the MK?

if you will be there long enough, id look into upgrading your passes to "park hopper" option....you can go and leave from all 4 parks as you please....if your a fast mover....you can really get alot of use out've it

I looked into it - since we only have 2 full days it did not seem like a deal. They have one where it looks like you can get 5 days for the price of 3....but I will check, thanks!

What about me?

When we went in '04 we stayed at Old Key West and rode the buses around using our Park Hopper passes... that was nice.

I know. Last summer I saw more incredibly obese people in motorized wheelchairs in one day at Animal Kingdom than I'd seen my whole life.

Practice avoiding the fat rascal riders at the local Walmart before you leave.
