We have done both but not Universal the last couple of visits, as we prefer Disney (we are a couple no children with us) but I can see older children preferring Universal

We are Disneyholics and although we enjoy visiting the Universal parks, we only go every other trip.
We can wander around WDW without a break, enjoying the theming, atmosphere, entertainment and the general ambience before we've even done a ride and that's what gives it the edge for us.
At Universal it's all about the rides and little else ( apart from Hogsmeade) and once we've done the rides, we're off

Universal for us, although we are all coaster junkies and DS is 13. We still usually visit Disney, although in Florida may only do HS for one day and skip the other parks.

I can't vote as I love them both. IoA is our favourite park at Universal plus we adore RPR. DHS is our No1 Disney park but we love some of the others, the fireworks, the theming, the food and everything that Disney does so well. Can't hit the 'vote' button Im afraid.

Disney will always have the magic that no other place can compete with. But Universal is still a fab park for the rides.

I think it's 51% Universal and 49% Disney - mostly based on having some old favourite rides and Harry Potter land. Although if I think about it too long I come up with a million reasons why Disney is better...

Hence why each trip we do the debate "shall we just do either Disney OR Universal this time?". Always do both in the end.

As we are a group of adults traveling we prefer Universal. We do do all the parks however.
This last trip though Disney was sorely lacking and we agreed it would be a couple of years before we went to any Disney park other than Hollywood Studios. Even perennial favourites like Soarin' have lost some of their shine.

Disney need to go all in and create their own version of Islands of Adventure, a park filled with white knuckle rides for the older kids and adults. make it based on the Villains, or the lesser used stuff like Tron or something. They have the space and could create a whole new park full of cutting edge rides.
