Looking for a little advice on where to play during an upcoming stay in Orlando...mid February.

I'm extending a stay from a trade show and my brother is flying down from NYC for a 3 day golf and park visit.  We're staying at Universal's Cabana Bay, as it's dirt cheap while we're in town.

For my trade show, I'm staying at the Rosen Shingle Creek, so the first round will be there.  But I'm looking for a couple other courses that give a decent bang for the buck.  I'd love to keep the green fees sub $100...and we're not opposed to waiting for twilight rates if need be.

The only other caveat is, we wont have a rental car.  So Ubering around will be the go to.

Anything beyond the Disney courses that I should be looking into?

Any advice is GREATLY appreciated!

Championsgate Country Club (not the resort) is a good track at a fair price. Not too far away to uber over to from the parks

Legends course at Orange Lake Resort may suit you will, too.  Depends on the condition.  

Celebration, Falcons Fire, North Shore, and Eagle Creek are not too far away.  And since you considered Disney, you might as well consider Southern Dunes.  Those should all be under $100.  I won't recommend Metrowest other than it's a good layout and not too far away and should be dirt cheap.  They had major conditioning issues, but are supposedly making a comeback.  

And as mentioned, ChampionsGate CC (not the resort) is a good choice as well.

What would be the recommendation is someone wanted to play 36 holes in one day, possibly even two days in a row?  I am coming down next week so won't have the daylight, but if courses were close enough or had 72 holes it could work.  Thanks in advance!

Not sure what your budget is but Grand Cypress has two very different courses in property.
The New Course is a links style design by Nicklaus. Pretty much a wide open square with giant shared greens.
Then they offer 27 holes of typical Florida golf as the other option.
Orange County also has multiple tracks on the same property.

Thanks for the advice folks.  ChampionsGate CC looks like it might be a nice option to try.
I've toyed with Crooked Cat at Orange County, as I've ogled it during past PGA shows, but never played.  
Falcon's Fire looks like a lot of fun too, so we may give that a shot if on of the other's is booked up.
