This is a thought I've been having as well. Looking forward to hearing if you do that and your thoughts on it after. We are 2 adults, possibly 3. I do want to begin & end vacation in Disney, but want to hit Universal 2 days, possibly 3. Don't want the nuisance of completely packing & moving offsite & back (and that would screw up free dining due to the time of our trip ..FD ends a couple days after arrival). Definitely don't want a rent a car. Trying to see what would be the best balance of economics and efficiency! If we did stay a night or 2 at a cheap-but-clean hotel in walking distance of US, it might work out as cheap as 2-3 return shuttle trips would cost 2-3 Adults PLUS cut out some commute time (and therefore allow more AM shuteye time!), and make it that much easier to get to ropedrop at least 1 day. And w/ closing time 6 or 7pm, we could choose to go back for swim, or even have nice supper at Citywalk, or any place nearby. I'd be bringing change of clothing in ziplock bags anyway (yay Bilge Rat Barges!). And also hoping on using some of the TS dining credits on a few places that take 2 credits, so not concerned about that part of it.
