Thing is, I haven't been to Orlando in almost 30 years. I am gonna let my son spend a lot of time with my Mom, but I also want to take him to some Theme Parks while we are there.
I was thinking Disney World, Sea World and Lego Land. I don't really want to do Disney, its over priced, and very aged, but, I do want to take him there at least once in his life. Anyway, what are your thoughts, are those 3 good places to go? Its just going to be him and me.
The Fantasyland Expansion in the Magic Kingdom is awesome. We're going down in about 3 weeks and hope to hit the new 7 dwarfs mine train that just opened. Sea World is great if your kids love animals. My son really enjoys it.
It is true that Disney is the most expensive, but it is also the standard bearer for all theme parks. They just keep getting better. Btw, Universal is only a few bucks cheaper than DIsney.
Never been to Legoland but I haven't read glowing reviews about it either. It can be done in a half day from what I understand.
If you PM me, I can give you some detailed options for your trip
