Hello, had some great tips and info from here and now I need some help from you experts :)
We plan to visit Orlando in May 2014, for 17 days, we are a couple in our twenties, no kids. We intend to visit all the Disney parks and waterparks, both universal parks, discovery cove, seaworld and aquatica. We don't want a car, I don't want to deal with the stress of driving in another country, and I'll definitely want to "drink around the world" at Epcot ;)
The natural choice would be to stay at Disney, we can afford up to the Caribbean Beach Resort. However... we don't have kids so won't benefit from character breakfasts etc. Also, the last time I went was in 2000 and I was 12, I loved being on International Drive with everythin that's going on...shops...restaurants... mini golf etc. If we stay in Disney are we going to be stuck eating at disney restaurants (as theres lots of restaurants we want to eat in around Orlando), is it difficult to get to international drive from Disney? And what about the other parks, is a taxi affordable? Is there any hotels on International Drive with reliable and regular shuttle buses, we'd like to be able to come and go from the parks.
Is Disney still the best choice??
Thanks in advance
