Disney Orlando and Universal

I am planning a trip to Disney and Universal 5/16-5/21. We have reserved a room at The Boardwalk Inn. We are a family of 4 ( my children are 22 & 25).
in general is this a heavy crowd time of the year?

Based upon the parks we want to visit - Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and briefly Epcot and Animal kingdom and 1 day at Universal. Is it possible to manage in 4 nights or do we need 5?

Disney no longer offers transportation to and from the airport -can someone recommend the best means of -(prearranged or Uber) transport if you were not renting a car?

Also, how would you arrange the trip? Would you start at Universal or 1 full day and stay overnight and then head to Disney the following morning or would you start at Disney and mid week take a day trip to Universal?

Thank you in advance for all reply’s!

I would go with five if you can. I would want more than one day at the two Universal parks.

Are your 22 and 25 year old kids on board with this vacation?
This seems like an odd way to spend a vacation with kids this old.
I'm picture the 4 of you standing in line for 30 minutes and cramming into the little boat for the "It's A Small World" ride.

Disney with adult children is the best! I would do 5 days if you've never been to Disney and Universal before. You can do a day trip from Disney to Universal and it would be nice not to switch hotels.

As far as transportation to and from the airport, we just take a Lyft or Uber, but pricing can fluctuate dramatically. If you want a locked-in rate, book through Mears or the Sunshine Flyer. I have not used either, so I cannot attest to them!

Also, it's so hard to gauge how busy Disney will be. Since Covid, there hasn't been many slow seasons. You will be there before school gets out and before Memorial Day, so theoretically, it shouldn't be terribly busy.
