Universal Orlando Resort™ is 15 minute drive from Disney World, not including the time it takes you to park.

Diagon Alley is located in Universal Studios™ (which contains the fire breathing dragon over the bank among other things!) and Hogsmeade is in Universal's Islands of Adventure™. You can even take the Hogwarts Express train between the two parks!
Both parks are similar sizes, and there is no real reason to choose between one or the other, as most tickets will come with access to both.

You will have to decide when you get there!
