Universal in July- any info appreciated!
My family has been to Disney a bunch of times, and we finally are going to head over to Universal for a vacation. I just booked our airfare (got a great deal on Southwest- $95 each way for non stop flights out of Hartford, CT). The best rate I see so far for RPR is an average $222/night with their SMSM promo. We don't really want to rent a car.
SO... here are my questions: Keeping in mind we arrive Thursday July 25th at 5pm and depart Thursday August 1st at 8:30am and we are a family of 4 with 2 boys ages 11 and 12:
1. Getting to/from airport- easiest/most cost efficient way
2. Is $222 a good price for RPR in late July?
3. We plan on having a semi-relaxing family vacation- not commando style like some of our Disney trips have been. That being said, will we have enough to do between the two parks, CityWalk, resort pools and possibly a water park?
4. If we do venture out to SeaWorld or Aquatica is there a shuttle available from RPR or would we have to rent a car?
I think that is it for now... we are really looking forward to this trip!

Universal is very different from WDW. You need to go in with the mindset that you will spend mornings and evenings at the parks and do hotel stuff in the afternoon. Add in Wet 'n Wild and SeaWorld a few of those days and it sounds like the perfect vacation to me.
