thx ladies for the suggestions! I looked at both parks & the Islands of Adventure, seems to be right up DS alley - esp; with the Spiderman ride!!! DS is HUGE into spidey right now. Right now, ds is currently at 42inch., and because of his height, he's able to ride most of the rides. Well see how much more he grows between now/then. I'd like to do Universal too, but I think he'd like the other one a bit better & doing two parks in one day, there's just not enough time. Dh/I have been to Universal prior to kid, but it's been several yrs..
