Sorry… how long?!

For decades, theme parks have been top-rated destinations for families looking for a fun and entertaining vacation. When it comes to having a memorable and magical holiday, theme parks offer the total package in a convenient way. While there are many theme parks in the United States, there are two significant names that dominate the industry: Disney and Universal.

In Orlando, Florida, Universal Orlando Resort and Walt Disney World Resort are constantly competing with each other to establish dominance in the industry. Both Resorts are absolutely incredible, and fans love them for their own unique reasons. However, not everything is fantastic for the visitors of these parks. Due to the overwhelming popularity of these parks, fans are unfortunately often stuck waiting in long lines for rides, attractions, and experiences.
