August '20... once more unto the Mouse :)

Three weeks in August, POR, couple of nights at Universal, road trip to the Keys... the plan so far; will populate parks more fully upon FP+ booking at 60 days out.

Me, missus, and 13y/o daughter who's more Star Wars and Marvel than Princesses now, so GE will be hit a few times... fingers crossed RotR doesn't go FP+ after we've booked our fast passes... it'll be carnage if it does!

ADRs all done for a few OoP meals, but checking daily for Space 220 to show as bookable, then there may be a re-plan.

Pared back car rental to a week this time (did ten days, then fourteen on our last two three weekers), and plan at least two I-Drive evenings (Kobe and Hooters... yes, the wings are that good, and Starflyer... is the Orlando Slingshot open yet?).

Plus, there'll be a Disney water park in there somewhere (did VB in '18... didn't float me boat).

Looks like a great trip you have planned! We also fly with virgin on the 5th from Manchester we are doing 3 night universal first though before heading to cbr for 11 nights.

Interested in how you have split your POR stay when going to universal... have you sort of paid twice for accommodation, or have you had to forgo free dining? (Or have you done something else that I need to remember for next time?!

I am assuming that the OP has paid twice for accommodation as they don’t mention checking out of POR but get a Lyft/Uber to Universal and then later it mentions about checking out of Universal.

POR room is ours the full three weeks, so we have the QSDP in play our entire stay.
With the amount of luggage we (OK, she shh... Don't tell the missus that) take, don't want to be forever packing /unpacking and requiring a full size SUV.
Plus, we're Disneyphiles- like the idea that it's a Disney hol with excursions away, rather than three separate segments to the holiday. (We've done split stays with one bit ending, another starting before, felt like we always missed the POR grounds and Springs boat to return... Plus, I don't like "endings")
