Help deciding

So I posted something similar in the Disney section, but maybe someone here could also help.
I'll be arriving second week of April and have 6 full days. I'm trying to figure out how to split the time between Universal and Disney. It'll be 2 of us in our mid 20s. Initially the plan was to go to Wizarding World of Harry Potter for 2 days as we are HUGE potter fans, that way we could somewhat enjoy the Harry Potter section fully and not rush, then enjoy IOA the other day. Since buying a 2 day gives a 3rd day free, we would use the 3rd at the other Universal park. We also want to visit a disney park or two. The dilemma is do we go with the 3 days at universal and 1 or 2 days at disney, or is it possible to experience IOA in one day? I really want to fully enjoy WWoH, but also want to go on most if not all the rides at IOA. 1 day I feel will be kinda rushed. But I also want to fully enjoy the Disney parks. Anyone have any feedback?

You can easily do both parks at Universal in two days. We just did that on our visit over holiday break. We stayed on site at Portofino Bay and got the early entry to Wizarding World...SO WORTH IT!!!!! We practically had the place to ourselves. I would definitely budget more time for the Disney parks. Have fun!
