Aug 2011 we were going to stay in a villa for 7 nights ( to get over jetlag and just chill) , 2 nights universal studios then 12 nights in OKW with free dining. However if we do it that way we would only get 12 days use out of our disney tickets because you can only pick up your tickets 48 hours prior to checking into a disney hotel if they are part of a package.
Then i thought because desert is looking like it won't be included that we would stay in a villa for 3 weeks and just go off to universal for 2 nights somewhere in the middle. Well after consulting the kids they want to stay on site for at least some of the holiday so they can come and go as they please.
I'm now thinking that we should fly in and check straight into disney hotel, then villa then US hotel last. Then we could get 3 weeks disney tickets so i could still go at the end of the holiday- what do you think?
