I was reading the boards the other day and thought I read something about a taxi surcharge to certain parts of the park. We are staying at Universal this time around, and catching a taxi to MK and HS for our Disney fix this trip. Is there an additional surcharge when they have to enter certain parts of the park past the gate? I was hoping to be dropped off in the big MK parking lot where our resort bus dropped us off the last time we stayed. Or do taxis do the TTC? :confused3

Whole new territory, trying to make sure I have it all straight before we leave Saturday. So excited I can hardly see straight :yay:

Thanks :goodvibes

My understanding is that taxis drop off at the TTC and you'll need to take the monorail or ferry to MK. I haven't taken a cab recently at Disney so I don't know if there are areas where there will be a surcharge.

Have you considered renting a car? It will probably be considerably cheaper.

Yes, we ran the numbers. The car was more expensive - parking at both Disney and HRH was painful...this was actually more economical :upsidedow.

When taking the taxi to the MK, have the driver drop you off at the guard kiosk at the Contemporary Resort, it is only a short walk from there to the MK entrance (Less than 1/2 mile). Much faster than taking monorail or boat from TTC.
