Plus the money you save on tickets this time gets you closer to your next trip :-) Hands up if you, like me think 3/4 years might become less :-) you will have an awesome time and probably still feel like you haven't scratched the surface of Disney even just concentrating on that.

Its doable if exhausting! Out first visit was 11 days off site in Nov/Dec time.
We visited all the Disney parks plus one water park, MMVCP, US and IOA, sea world, bush gardens, went fruit picking, did shopping, played plenty of mini golf and went to watch ice hockey in Tampa. We played in the villa pool and games room.We also had a couple of days written off with stomach bug so had to tweak plans, leave people in the villa etc. We had our 2 young children with us (2&5) and they had an absolute ball! It was a really brilliant holiday and definitely gave us the Orlando bug! We were probably helped by cooler weather (cold actually on a couple of days) and lowish crowds levels. We probably achieved more on that holiday in terms of variety than any longer ones weve had since.
I think with some good planning it can definitely be done.

Anything is doable. Assuming you have 11 full days (not 11 nights) then you could spend 8 days at Disney, 1 day at KSC and 2 days at Universal. That's doable but it won't be as restful as it could be.

Eight days at Disney might include 2 days at MK, 1 day at Epcot, 1 day at HS, 1 day at AK, 1 day (perhaps split over 2 half days) at a waterpark, 1 day meandering around DS and Boardwalk (again, perhaps split over two half days) and 1 day downtime. You could argue the waterpark time is "downtime" but my experience is that waterpark days can be almost as tiring as theme park days.

Two days at Universal is the minimum I'd suggest. That's one day at US and one day at IOA (although if you have a park hopper you can mix that up over the two days). It excludes Volcano Bay. Three days at Universal would be better, if you don't mind sacrificing a day at Disney.

One suggestion would be to book a room at one of the deluxe Universal hotels. That would save travelling between Universal and Disney for one evening and morning and would also mean you'd get Express passes. That would help cut down the queues at Universal and make visiting the two parks over 2 days much more manageable. We've done that in the past when staying only at Disney. Obviously this does increase the cost of the holiday though.

Personally, I'd probably suggest just sticking with Disney and KSC with only an 11 day holiday. But doing Universal as well is doable.
