The tour package was an excellent value for money. The first 3 days ( disneyland, universal studios, seaworld ) were the best part of the tour in terms of entertainment and value. With all the tickets and fast pass included, I don't understand how could it fit into this small price. The remaining part of the tour was also good . But it was Tooo hectic. One of the days, the bus had to leave the hotel by 4:45 AM. The only let down was that, there was no single point of contact to whom we could ask about the next day tour. And the local contact number given were not able to help much, because they donot understand English well. Overall, I would rate the Tour Package Excellent in terms of value, Hotels were really good hotels. Only thing missing was a single point of contact phone number who could let us know what we had in store for the next day and if they could communicate in English.
