My husband and I plus our two boys ages 13 and 11 are planning on being in Orlando at the end of May.

We are staying offsite at Windsor Palms. The days we have available to go are the last Sat, Sun, Mon, and Tues of May. May 26-29th.

How many days should I use for Universal Studios? And which day/days are best considering it is Memorial Weekend. It was the only time we had avl to travel. :(

The main attraction for the boys is Harry Potter.

I plan to buy my tickets online and any tips or suggestions anyone has for us is very welcome.

Thank you!

I would do a day for each park, or add park hopper if you're done with one early. As for what day, any day would be mostly the same. Most people who arrive on weekends start with WDW first, then go to Uni. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
