Hey everyone been doing ALOT of research and found out a fair few things and need to change alot around but still need advice from people with alot more experience than myself.
First off I just want to say I wont be renting a car as Im 22 and this cost will be a bit too high.
Its my first trip away from home with the girlfriend and while I was originally staying at the Parc Soleil I've recently changed my mind and will be staying at the HGVC on I-Drive as I wont have a car transport will be easier from here from what I can tell plus there is fast food, outback and a grocery store close by.
There seems to be no shuttle to the hotel so I was looking at getting a free shuttle to another hotel thats close and getting a taxi from there. But wondering what peoples opinions would are on that.
I will be staying at this resort for 5 days 2 of which will be at universal which I believe the Hilton runs a shuttle for 6 dollars to the park. 1 Of the other days I was planning on going to the 2 outlets one of which is obviously behind the hotel and the other is on I-drive and shouldnt be too hard to catch a bus too.
Another day we were looking at going to the Science museum for the star wars exhibit and having a look around Mall at Millenia. Now from google maps its looking like a 1 hour bus ride to the museum then another 1 hour ride to the mall not to sure how to get around that unfortunately so if anyone has any tips I will be extremely grateful.
We were also looking at going to the pirate dinner show on one of the nights which looks like a 20 min bus ride there and back.
The last day at the hilton was a relaxation day so will just walk around and lounge by the pool dosent look like there is too much around in terms of walking distance.
The remainder of the stay I will be staying in Disneyland and will go to the parks and on the off days head over to the the boardwalk and downtown Disney.
Also I have pre bought my tickets through the expedia booth at the hotel (called and paid as I got some discount as I was on some marketing package and got 15% off.) Was $824.47 australian all up for 3 days at disney and 2 at universal no park hoper for 2 adults. Does that sound right?
1. No car, staying at HGVC on I-Drive best way to get there?
2. Bus to the outlets on I-Drive then visit Vineland outlets.
3. Planning on busing it to Science Museum and Mall at Millenia.
Looks like 3 hours on buses to get from the hotel to the both places and back. Any other ideas apart from taxi?
4. Anything close by thats interesting to do preferably walking distance from the HGVC on I-Drive?
5. Park tickets from hotel expedia with some discount worked out to $824.47 Australian for 3 days disney and 2 Universal no park hopper. Sound about right?
Cant think of anything else and sorry for the long post :).
