We’ve been to WDW like, an embarrassing number of times in the last 4 years. I’ve lost count. Maybe 11? Lots, at any rate. We’ve never been to Universal. Mom, dad, and 7yo boy. Dad really wants to go to Uni, and we found an absurd SW fare sale that got us 3 round trip tickets on our points (free but for the processing fee), so I guess we’re going in July.
We have found Uni tickets for 2 day “hoppers” (park-to-park) plus an extra free day (so total of 3 days). Not including the water park, don’t want that. Will be onsite at Royal Pacific at Uni. Figure we’ll do 2, maybe 2 1/2 days at Uni, then shift over to Disney. Booked at AK Kidani on rented DVC points. 3 nights Uni, 3 nights WDW. Total of 5 full days.
Trying to figure out how many days of tickets we need at WDW. The cost of tickets with both Uni and WDW is a bit yikes.
Checking out of Uni on Day 3. Might do park that morning, or pool, depending on what we have accomplished. Not sure if we do pool time and restaurant at AK Kidani when we check in there on Day 3, or actually try to hit an afternoon/evening park. Planning AK on Day 4. Day 5 is in question - park or pool/bum around? Day 6 is morning flight home.
Here are prices for tickets through UT:
- Uni 2 day P2P with free extra day + WDW 3 day hopper = $1841.86
- Uni 2 day P2P with free extra day + WDW 3 day MYW = $1676.86
- Uni 2 day P2P with free extra day + WDW 2 day hopper = $1606.72
- Uni 2 day P2P with free extra day + WDW 2 day MYW = $1415.40
- Uni 2 day P2P with free extra day + WDW 1 day AK peak = $1156.01
Dear, internet, what would you do? Will Uni plus the new stuff at AK satisfy my theme park needs this year, or will I kick myself if I don’t ride BTMRR and get a Dole Whip after riding Pirates? DS7 has his father’s amnesia and doesn’t remember many of our prior trips, and BTMRR is his favorite. We’re also Star Wars fans, and I love to eat at Epcot, so I’ve got hoppers in the mix. Definitely the only Orlando trip we’re doing this year.
