We have a very late flight home on the last day of our stay, so we were considering going to US/IoA for the day then heading right to the airport from there - the parks close at 6:00 that day, giving us almost 3 hours 'til our flight leaves. Was going to rent a car at Disney then drop off at the airport but that is really expensive to do that...can anyone recommend a more economical way to do it? We can check our large bags using the Resort Check-in service but will need somewhere to keep our carry-on's while at the parks. Any ideas?

Thanks!

There is another way. There are towncar company and Express by SuperShuttle that will take you to Universal from Disney and most have great rates and take credit cards. We hired one and it was more comfortable than a taxi. We had 6 people

There are many companies that provide this service as well.
Please be aware everyone....it is against board guidelines to register simply to promote a business. Not saying that is the case here, but it could be.

Hi I have used mears in the past and found them to be very good. We are not going to uni on our next trip but will be going to sea world so i guess the arrangments can be made the same way? I had been thinking that we would use the lynx bus but i didn't realise it would take upto 2 hours to get to the attractions down i drive! Do mears do trips to the malls as well as we had been planning on the lynx for those too?

Do you think one day is enough for IOA and US ?

Depends. If it's busy, then you may have an issue doing the bigger attractions. I know that my dd and I did both parks last August. But, we didn't do everything....no Dueling Dragons or Hulk. We did buy the FoTL passes though. And when I was there for two days in Dec, I was more than ready to head back to WDW by noon on our second day. We got to the parks on Wednesday, by 8:30, and stayed in them until around 5ish. Then, headed back again first thing on Thursday morning. I was ready to leave but our Mears ride wasn't coming until 3ish. I really did everything I wanted to on that first day.

Mears Shuttle v MearsTaxi Cab

I think I may be dense, but it seems from reading all of these posts that there is both a Mears taxi service to US and a Mears Shuttle to US. Is that correct? I see that a round trip ticket on the shuttle is $18 per person and one post mentioned that a taxi was about $35 dollars (I think it was the Mear taxi, but am not sure). So for a family of four, it seems a taxi is much cheaper. Is that right and the way to go. We may have five so it may even be a better deal to take the Mears Taxi.

Mears Shuutle v Mears Taxi

Sorry, just went to the Mears site. They have both and the prices listed by others are accurate. Is there a down side to taking the cab? With four or five people seems a much cheaper alternative.

That $35 is one way I believe. So, it will be $70 r/t plus tips. It almost makes more sense to hire a towncar service if you are doing this.
I have always said that if you have more than 3 people traveling between WDW and US/IoA, it makes more sense to get a car service, or a cab if you choose.

We're trying to decide if we should do mears or take a cab. There are 3 of us and while mears may be the better deal, wondering about the time involved if it might be worth the money to cab it if it's going to take an excessive amount of time to travel back and forth.
