Much more relaxed atmosphere than at Walt Disney World. Staffers usually fun and helpful. If you stay at one of the "big three" hotels on site, your room key is your fast pass, no bothering with Fast Pass+ reservations! Fun rides, too.More

Islands of adventure is the best non-Disney theme park I have ever visited. The theming is top notch and there are some great rides as well. Harry Potter is of course the showstopper and worth the admission alone.More
