How to get from Walt Disney World hotels to Universal Orlando?Universal Orlando: How much to pay?
From Dan SSince I really love staying on Disney property, and would rather not hotel hop ( last year we stayed in a general hotel for a few nights and then transferred to a Disney hotel), I would like to know what transportation there is from a Disney hotel to Universal Studios, and how much does it cost?

From Skipper AdamTaxis is the best bet. Or City bus, but I have no idea what they cost.

From Joseph CatlettIncluding tip, taxis are about 25 to 30 bucks each way. Not ridiculously expensive.

From Justin MProbably for the amount you would spend on a Taxi you could just rent a car for like 50 dollars a day or less.

From Orrin CarstarphenI would rent a car, it is really easy to get from one park to the other as it is only about 10 minutes via interstate. I know people think the traffic is bad but it really isnt bad as long as you dont go during rush hour. Atlanta traffic is a lot worse.

From Skipper AdamTurkey Lake Road, if I remember correctly, is a great backroad alternative between Disney and Universal.

You go to the Magic Kingdom Transportation and Ticket Center (where the two monorails stops, it's near the Polynesian Resort). Find the LYNX bus stop.
It cost 2$.
You take the 111 to go to the Florida Mall (ask the driver if he stops there).
At the Florida Mall, you take de 37. It will drive you to Universal Studios.
It's not expensive and the drivers are nice. The only downside: it takes 1:45 hour to get there...but you avoid spending 30$ + gratuity for a cab (2 times in your day. So let's just say you'll save 60$).
My husband and I chose to take the time and keep our money and we never regretted it.
From Rob VialaMears Transportation will pick you up and take you to Universal Orlando. Door to door is $19 per person round trip.
