How many of you are going to go to Disney when you make Nats? I think we're going to Universal or Sea World...you guys?

Though my school most likely isn't going to Nats, I'd pick Universal over any of the others.

I dont know if any of you will take my advice but its worth a try. I was in Orlando about 3 weeks ago on break and here is the reality. Disneyworld is EXTREMELY BORING unless you buy the Park Hopper Pass for an extra cost, this can be pricey (like 120 a ticket per day). Unless you plan on riding 2-3 rides only or are going to be there for a short time, get the park hopper or you will be bored outta your mind. The regular passes (like I had) only allowed you into one park a day, and each park only has 1-3 good rides, obviously that wont entertain you for the day. And if you want to go on all of the rides, they obviously wont have all of the rides in one park. Also, when at Disney, get there EARLY at opening time. Since you guys will be in big groups, you probably want to get fast passes for later. My recommendation is to get there in the early hours and wait in the standby lines since there often arent many people until later, and while that is happening, reserve your fast passes for the later rides, and do the same while waiting for the next rides, by reserving your fastpasses for later. (They are free, but you have to wait like 1-2 hours to get them) I know most people probably think its crazy to spend $120 bucks for one day, but if you really wanna have fun, its pretty much the only way.
