At first we booked a trip to Orlando with the intention of staying at HRH to visit Universal and the new Harry Potter attraction. The first two days of our trip we would spend at Universal and the last five at WDW. I have since changed my mind and switched our first two days to POFQ saving 30% on the room, purchased the express pass for universal and 2 day park to park ticket. I thought that HRH was extremely expensive nor was I thrilled about having to purchase a “fast pass” for Universal when Disney gives theirs for free.
For me, Universal does not have the charm, magic nor accommodations that WDW does and the convenience that is offered in WDW far outweighed staying at a over priced hotel just because its close to Universal.
