My Girlfriends UK visa (She's Canadan) ends at the back of August, and she needs to apply for a new one back in Canada, and this is likely to be a lengthy process... so we're looking at the possibly of an Orlando trip on the way back. It is just the two of us.
I'm really keen to go to Universal, and having of course read Niles's history as a cast member and some other series (like the "ears her Ears" series) I'm thinking a trip to Disney shouldn't be left off. I'm not too bothered about Sea World/Busch gardens so they're not on the itinerary.
We're both first time visitors, and we're not really the type who want to keep to a schedule in a trip away - this is supposed to be fun, not work.
I was wondering if I could get some advice.
1. I'm not a car user, so wherever we stay has to be Accessible to the park. I'm really keen on the perks for staying on Universal property (specifically, Front of line privileges) so staying on site for the universal part is a given. Disney of course don't do that (just the longer Fastpass+ prebook window), so I'm wondering if its actually worth staying at WDW for the Disney part of the trip, or are there more economical options that are still viable for non car users?
2. How difficult is it to get from WDW to Universal (or vice versa)? I'm guessing we're probably looking at Taxi/Uber, but we're not opposed to taking a bus if its significantly cheaper yet viable. Same question also applies to MCO Airport.
3. What I've read suggests that the Disney parks get quieter in September. Presuming we're staying on site for the Universal part of the trip, would it make more sense to front load with universal, and hold Disney back for Weekdays in September?
4. Alternatively, is it just better to stay in one location off site, and get Universal Express just for the days we intend to go. There seems to be a decent price on a 14 day park to park ticket only available online.Tweet
