Please help need opinions about universal studio!!!!

We are planing on a rv trip to universal studio but canít decide on which one California or Florida. Is there one better than the other? I know for Disney the Disney world is bigger and better than the Disney in California. Are there any rv park around the universal studio anyone would recommend? Thanks in advance

Just my opinion, but you owe it to yourself to stay at Disney's Ft. Wilderness in Orlando once in your lifetime If you haven't done so already.

There is a KOA close to Universal Orlando, which offers a shuttle service, to overcome the parking issues.

Oh... this is a no brainier. FLORIDA!

Florida is friendly to RV's... California (Los Angeles, Anaheim, Buena Park) is NOT anywhere close. . .



And, yes - I have been to both. I have been to Disneyland in CA lots of times as I grew up there. Universal is hours away by car, not RV friendly at all. Factor Fuel prices, traffic and the likelihood of being a crime victim in CA.

Are there any differences between the parks itself?

been to both Flordia hands down...



although paying $100+ per person to stand in line for 30+ minutes to ride a ride is nuts....



the best time to go is the week after thanksgiving... no lines and weather is still good... best bang for you buck...


yes they have different rides... they are different but the same...

It seems like many are recommending FL. I'll drive another nail in that one by saying that from OK, you don't have to drive over any "terrain" to get to FL. If you go to CA, you have the desert southwest to deal with, and potentially some significant hills/mountains depending on which way you go.

Personally, I'd rather drive through the "low lands" myself...

Thank you all for all your great advices/opinions. I think we have pretty much decided to go to FL instead of CA based on all the inputs from my fellow forum members.
