Theme parks are packed this week, here are some tips

Have relatives in town and thinking of hitting Florida's many theme parks? Brace yourself. And pack an extra load of patience. The last weeks of the year are by far the busiest at the theme parks. Last December, Disney, Legoland and Universal Studios all had days where they had to close the gates by midday as holiday crowds crushed into the parks. Some tips: Arrive early, before the parks open, because even the highway gets jammed. Have real tickets in hand before you go. Restaurants have long waits from opening until closing, so bring along a snack to hold you over. Have a plan, and visit the rides that develop long lines first. —Sharon Kennedy Wynne, Time staff writer
