WDW vet but first time at UOR and doing adults only. Staying onsite so get the early access and express pass. Quick trip - we get in midday Sat, there all Sun, and then have most of day Mon (730 pm flight so need to leave around 430-5).
Looking at the plans should we do the "Universal Orlando Two-Day/Two-Park Plan with Early Entry" and just do it Sun/Mon? I'm finding that plan kind of confusing about where to start. On my days, early entry is at IOA, so looks like on Day 1 (Sat) I do Forbidden Journey and Flight of the Hippogriff and then take Hogwarts Express to USF and then Day 2 just follow the day 2 plan?
On that first half-day - any thoughts? Just hang at hotel/pool and casually do USF or go to CityWalk? We will have 3 day pass since same price as 2 day.
Also - would you rent a car or just do a shuttle? Car is $96 (plus a small amount of gas and $44 for parking). Seems like taxi is cheaper and I don't think we'll need a car, right? Would lean towards taxi over shuttle to maximize time.
Thanks for help - I can plan a WDW trip but a little clueless about UOR and this is a last-minute trip.
