Short answer: YES!!!

We take a trip to WDW almost every year. We were there 3 times from December 08 to October 09 - plus a Disney cruise with the October trip. The only time we have been to Universal was a bit over 9 years ago. Our kids haven't been at all.

So, this summer, we are planning a trip to stay at our wonderful DVC accomodations, but not do the 4 Disney parks. We may do a waterpark. But, our main goal is Harry Potter at Universal (plus the rest of Universal and Sea World). When we have passes to the parks, it is really hard to take time out and go somewhere else.
Wishing you Disney Dreams! Beth

We'll hopefully be headed back to the world in Dec 2011. And I just got the idea last week to possibly head up to Universal for a day to see the new HP Wizarding World. We'll see if we can swing it financially. It'd mean possibly renting a car for the day, pay to park, and buy day passes.
Next Trip:
December 2015!!!

We definitely plan on going, but not during our 2010 trip. We'll probably try it out in 2011. 2012 is reserved for California and Hawaii, Disney style!

Will definitely go see!

DH & I may even consider annual passes. We've been to Universal only once in over 12 years of marriage, and we didn't like it much compared to WDW. But I'm a huge fan of HP and can't wait to check out this new section. Disney will still most likely get our money for annual passes this year, but we may use fewer days by going to see the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Never been to Universal in Orlando, not interested...until now. For our next trip in December we plan to spend a day there just to do HP. Then on to Disney World.

We'll be there

08 was our first trip to US Orlando and we had a great time. This is our year to go to Disney but we will absolutely go to check out Harry Potter. We plan at least 3 days between the two parks with the 7 day passes we were able to get courtesy of a fellow Dis'er.

Not a fan so won't be going. Haven't taken DS6 and DD3 to Universal at all, I have it in my head that WDW is the only place we belong!

Oh yeah! Definitely going to see HP! Who doesn't want to walk into Hogwarts?!?! Of course I couldn't go to Orlando and not go to Disney....... so the trip will just have to be longer to accomodate that!

I just book three nights at the Hard rock,just so we can go and see HP. We originally where not going to see It this year with how busy Its going to be,but we decided that we where not going to come back In 2011?? so I thought we will want to see It this year then. So we split up our 10 day stay at POP,to 7 and three at the HR. I admit we got suck In!

Not this trip, but in a future trip YES! I want to be able to go on the rides, and I'll be 7 months pregnant when we're there in May.
