Jump to last reply

We are a family of 4, my husband and 2 teens & myself. We are just starting to plan our first USA trip (its been our ultimate goal). If I list our initial itinerary (plan) could we get some feedback on whether our plans are a good idea, or are feasible etc, and suggestions as to what suburb, area we should stay and further ideas are welcomed. Here goes:-

Depart Sydney Australia to LA 18 Sept 2015
Things we'd like to do are - Universal Studios, Hollywood Tour, Santa Monica, Venice Beach, would love to catch a football game if we can somewhere, some shopping if advisable and anything else you may suggest. Say 5-6 nights here???

Onto maybe hiring a car and drive to Las Vegas
Things we'd like to do here are:- Gand Canyon ( Would love to do this by helicopter), M & M World, Fremont Street, would love to see the Michael Jackson stage show if still playing, see the Titanic Artifact Exhibit if still there, shopping if advisable, any other suggestions. Say 4 nights here.

Fly to San Fransico
Here we'd like to see Alcatraz, Fisherman Wharf, maybe Golden Gate Bridge, anything else?? Say 3-4 nights here.

Fly to Orlando
Here we MUST go to Disneyworld, Universal Studios (daughter wants to do both Universal Studios???) Hav ehad suggestions to get on the IRide Trolley?? What else should we do here?? Suggestions on length of stay here please.
