    I have never been to Universal Studios and my girlfriend and I are visiting in a few weeks and wanted to get an idea if our plan is feasible. Anything you guys would change? I built most of the plans with the aid of a book and touringplans.com with a tweak here or there. It seems like the waits are pretty low. Are those estimates way off or could that be about right for mid-September? We will be doing Disney World Sunday-Wednesday (September 10-13) and then Volcano Bay on Thursday the 14th, Universal on the 15th, and IOA on the 16th.

    We are staying at Cabana Bay so will be able to access Universal an hour early.

    Thanks in advance for any tips you may have.

    Best tip is to throw that plan in the trash and just show up. You will have a blast.

    You are there at a slow time, you don't really need to plan much of anything. Universal isn't like Disney.

    My biggest advice is also to trash the schedule. On the dates you're going, I don't think you'll have an issue doing everything and then some.

    Also an advocate of getting rid of that schedule. You won't need it and it'll be less stressful without.

    My one piece of advice for Universal is do Minions first.

    Everything else is pretty much do what you want, when you want.

    Ya, Minions is always busy. Last time I was there Minions was busier then either Potter.
