I am planning a trip March 1st -6th with family. Me, hubby and a 2 yr old and 4 yr old. Was planning to take advantage of the buy 3 nights get 2 nights free. Nickhotel and the cheapest Universal on-site are about the same price including tickets and transportation. (12-1300) We are leaning towards Nickhotel b/c of the great pool area for the kids. (We don't plan to go to Disney this trip...did that last year). After reading through these boards I saw that Marriot Horizons has a cool pool area, but it is more expensive and doesn't appear to offer transportation to the parks...but it did get me thinking there might be other hotels/resorts with neat pools for the kids that might be better recommended than NickHotel? Or is Nickhotel a good option? My biggest complaint about it is that it isn't very close to Universal. So, I thought I would ask if there are other places that have a neat pool, is affordable, and offers free transportation to the park. One other question...I think my kids would love Sea World...is 2 and 4 a good age for this park? Thank you so much for any information you can provide!!!
