OT - How many days for the two parks at Universal Orlando?

How many days would you spend at Universal Orlando?  I have two boys that will be 6 & 8.  Also, they like rides, but too short for the Harry Potter/Revenge of the Mummy type rides.

Also, does Universal have any type of free transportation to and from the aiport?

Thanks!

I would say at least two. I was there and just went to US and that was a good whole day. It was with my soon for his school field trip so we left early and didn't get to do it all. I haven't seen the new IOA but I hear it is fun. I don't know about transportation.

I would say two. We went to universal last year for just 1 day and I wish we had more time there. I really enjoyed it.

If your kids are under 44 inches, you could do both parks in one long day. We love Universal, LOVE IT, but my daughter is a little older than your kids are and is a thrill junky. She was just barely, barely 48 inches in August, so barely that they let her on The Hulk, but not on Dueling Dragons. We had a better time at Universal than we did at WDW, but that said, the fact that so many rides there are coasters, there isn't as much there for the smaller set.

Depends on you and the kids. If they like rides you could easily do three days. I think it also depends on your vacation style. If your one to get there when the park opens and stay until they toss you out than you can do it in 2. We are the type to get there when we get there and leave when we get tired so the third day is nice for us. Also out kids are younger and there are 3 of them so things take us longer.

I think you need a good day for each park.
But, we don't like to be rushed. We like to take our time.
If you are going to breeze through stuff, you could probably do one day.
I would check a map, and see what they could ride, and go from there.

You could easily do 2 days at Universal if you include Islands of Adventure. I bet they can ride the dragon roller coaster, my dd did last year when she was only 5 and she's teeny for her age. We do it in one long day, but we skip a lot of the "attraction" stuff that isn't rides. We love Seuss Landing!!
