There are plenty to choose from.......

Do an accommodation search using the above Booking.com, Expedia, Hotels.com etc and a selection of properties with transport options and areas will show up. A bit time consuming, but i find that half the fun. Good luck.. :)

It costs approx. $30 each way from a hotel to the parks so I would figure $60 a day to go to a park and back. May be cheaper or more expensive depending on distance.

I'd suggest the International Drive area. You really don't need a car if that is your base as there are plenty of restaurants/shops Both the IRide Trolley and Lynx buses run up and down International Drive so it is easy to get around. The two outlet shopping malls are located at either end of IDrive. Seaworld to the south of the Drive is easy to reach by bus or trolley

If you use the Lynx you can get to the Disney parks, Mall at Millenia and Florida Mall (for all of these you do need to change buses - remember to ask for a transfer as you board, saves paying again).

If you are looking for more a suite/apartment type of accommodation, I'd recommend Hilton Grand Vacations - the one at the South of International Drive near the Premium Outlets, Floridays or one of the Embassy Suites on International Drive - I prefer the Convention Centre one myself.

Also look at Lake buena vista around palm parkway (you will have access to lynx bus route) - We have stayed at cypress pointe in a 2 bed and that was fab - probably got a 10 min walk to the nearest bus stop, but certainly doable if you are not wanting to drive.

having a car is easier, but fully understand not wanting to drive i have done it several times without a car - and even now depending on where im going determines whether i take a car or not, i tend to head off to the coast a little more now.

If spending more time at universal than disney look at i drive - we stopped at the fountains just up from premium outlets, and there was bus/ lynx stop right outside the resort.

We also hate driving on holiday and therefore we always stay at Loews Royal Pacific, you can get a boat or walk to US, IOA & City Walk. I drive is a 10 minute walk away as is Wet & Wild. From I Drive you can get a bus to Seaworld & Aquatica, we sometimes walk it but it does take a long time. From City Walk you can also get a bus to Bushe Gardens in Tampa Bay. We never do Disney so cannot comment on how easy it to get there although I have seen buses saying Disney on I-Drive.

Also don't forget that if you stay at Royal Pacific you get to fast track US & IOA for free with your room key.

Virgin often do great offers for this hotel, we paid £1,300pp for flights, transfers & hotel last September for 14 nights are have paid £1,700pp for 16 nights this coming June.
