    Difficult to compare if you have not been e.g. in Florida. I came with low expectations, especially regarding tram logistics (queing is nightmare). If you upgrade to membership, all goes smoothly.

    Buy tickets on line - choose a mid week day, weekends are really buzy. You wont be able to do everything in 1 day. I agree with Sue H's answer.
