Hey everyone, my wife and i were planning a trip to Orlando just to visit Universal Orlando and Disney world. We were planning to go in November and would be using miles for our flights. Our goal is to do 3 days at disneyworld (visit all 3 parks) and then 2 days at Universal Studios (visit both parks).
I know that the parks arent in close proximity to each other and most hotels dont offer transportation to the other parks. What would be the best way to approach this vacation? We were planning to stay at one of the Disney hotels which have free transportation to the parks and also to/from the airport.
Would it make the most sense to stay at a Disney Hotel for the full 7 days? We werent planning on getting a rental car, so what would be the best way to go to the Universal parks each day?
My second option was to do 4 nights at one of the Disney hotels, then do the last 3 night at one of the Universal partner hotels. Would this route make sense? What would be the best way to get from the Disney Hotel to the Orlando one? How much would a cab ride be? (rough estimate)
My last option is to get a deal through Costco, which includes a rental car but not one of the partner hotels, so you dont get the perks associated with them. I like the idea of staying at the partner hotels to get the additional perks, like early admission etc.. Also, is one day per park enough? We are big disney fans and i have not yet done any of the Orlando parks. I have also desperately wanted to do the "world of harry potter," so in your guys opinion would one day be enough? or do you think 2 days for that park would work better?
Any help with our planning would be greatly appreciated!!
