2 week trip (WDW, US, SW, etc)

So I am slowly planning a 2 week trip for the summer of 2014. My DD will be 8 then. Most of our trip will be Disney-based but would like to also explore US and Seaworld. I'm good at planning Disney only trips but just wondering about some input about a trip like this. Most likely we will be flying...we drove in April and just didn't think it was worth the couple hundred it saved us (live in CT). I think we will need a day each for US, IofA, and Seaworld. We do not usually rent a car. Do you think it would be worth it to stay at US for 2-3 nights and take advantage of their unlimited pass? Or should we just stay at Pop and either taxi it or rent a car for a few days? Just looking for opinions and suggestions as this trip will take even more planning than our typical trip. Thanks.

P.S. Hope I posted this in the right place, it was either hear or in the Universal forum.

I think a 2-night stay at one of the Universal onsites would be a good idea, particularly that time of year. Those 2 nights will get you 3 days of unlimited Express access to all attractions that offer it (only 4 or 5 don't) at Universal. Three days at Universal with Express in the busy summer season should give you the chance to see everything there at least once.
