We were Disney park commandos for many years! But as my boys grew and DH and I grow older, we needed to have a "chill out" vacation. Universal has given us just that! Minimal advance planning and express passes that don't require reservations are wonderful!! We do still visit Disney parks and restaurants- we choose to stay at our Universal resort while doing so!So I'm not sure if I have mentioned but we are not big fans of Disney
Now I cannot judge too much as I have never been to a Disney Park (Maybe i am missing something)
Rob went with his son in 2013 and while they liked Disney they LOVED Universal. They found Disney more a chore and involved a lot of planning where as Universal was more up their street
I have seen and read enough vlogs and blogs and forums to know that Disney is just not for me, Universal is so chilled and the express passes are a treat (The Disney Fastpass system sounds irritating)
We did discuss maybe doing a disney park or 2 on this trip but decided against it, just seems more suited for kids and families of adults who have grown up loving Disney
Disney does have a lot for adults, in particular EPCOT and their festivals- Food & Wine especially! So it is worth a visit on longer trips, but day tickets are expensive so it's probably more worthwhile to keep chilling at UO!!
