Universal Studios or Disney's Magic Kingdom?

Unfortunately we don't have time to visit all main parks so we have to make a choice: Universal Studios or Disney Hollywood Studios?

Do you have kids? If you have kids and they are not in there teens yet go with the Magic Kingdom.

Are kids going? If yes what ages? There are only 4 rides open right now in Hollywood Studios. If you only have a day you could get a park to park ticket for universal/islands of adventure (but depending on time of year could be too crowded to do everything).

We are three adults. We have four days to spare so one of them has to be either Universal Studios or Hollywood Studios. We are visiting in April.

For adults only trip Universal would be my choice.

Your title said Magic Kingdom, but your question was Hollywood Studios! So which one? Also, when in April? Answers to both questions could affect answers.

With 4 days you could cover all the main Disney Parks. But, for a group of adults, I’d probably go Universal and stay there so you can bounce between your pool and rides easily (plus CityWalk at night).

Out of the two, I like Universal Studios. There's plenty to do there and I think the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is a must see when you're in Orlando.

Sorry yes my mistake. I was referring to Hollywood Studios not Magic Kingdom.

So is it better to spend 2 days in Disney parks and 2 days in Universal parks? Or 3 days in Disney and 1 day in Universal?
