We used to go in November (before thanksgiving) and it was perfect for us, weather was comfortable and parks were dead. Unfortunately we’re tied to holiday times now due to college and work commitments, so harder to benefit from the quieter times. Still love the place though, and would happily go and leave out the parks completely if kids permitted
Depends when you go. Don't clash when South Americans have their school holidays, firstly As they clean outlet shops out. And then if you can help it ( for shorter queues, but they won't empty outlet shops) Don't go when North Americans are on school holidays.
All down to opinion and circumstances, for our 3 year old daughter it was a perfect park, no queues and plenty to go on for her. As mentioned in the original post, I much prefer Universal and Busch Gardens, but there’s far fewer attractions at them for our daughter, the queues are much longer and also much more expensive.
It's a great park for younger kids but you won't want to go more than once per holiday, Hot
It should be free as it’s a terrible park.
