Universal Orlando touring plan

Universal Orlando: Just trying to figure out a solid touring plan for our first visit since all the new stuff got put in...

So, the wife and I will be making our first trip to Universal Studios in a few years (last time I went there was no Harry Potter, no Transformers, no Despicable Me)...Islands of Adventure, I know what the plan is: straight to Harry Potter without stopping to look back. But, what is a good itinerary for Universal Studios if you want to focus on the two newest attractions? Transformers first, then Despicable Me, or the opposite? We can't afford to stay on site, so front of line access is not an option, so just trying to get a good idea of a solid touring plan for minimal waiting.

For USF, I'd say to do Despicable Me at park opening and then do Transformers single rider. The single rider line at Transformers has enough of the preshow to set up the ride. If you must ride it as a group, doing it second is not that bad either through stand-by. Then clockwise for rides (save Twister for afternoon) and fit in shows as you want.
