Our original pick up location was Animal Kingdom Lodge but we wanted to head to MK after our day at Universal. We asked if they could drop us off at the Contemporary Resort and that was not an issue. We made the request when we originally called to make our reservation for the shuttle.

Hope it helps!
Thanks for this info! I was wondering if you could be picked up at one resort and dropped off at another (for dinner reservations, etc.). Good to know it's not a problem!

Taxi or Shuttle?

Hi,

I will soon be @ the CBR and I have a 1 day two park express pass for Universal and I was wondering what my best option is. 2 adults so I figure a taxi would be great because we won't stop @ sea world and costs would be split. But what is the cost of the taxi and tip compared to the shuttle for a round trip? Thank you

you can take the mears disney shuttle from your disney hotel to universal.
cost is $19 per adult plus gratuity for the round trip transportation.

make the ressie the night before at the concierge in your wdw hotel lobby.
choose your pick up time then.


2 adults = $ 38 which would be cheaper than the taxi.

getting a taxi from dtd could be $35 per way plus gratuity.
round trip taxi = $76

How do you get from Disney to Universal for a day or two?

More so if you do not have a car?

Is there a shuttle say from downtown Disney, cabs, etc?

One would figure that Universal would find a way to get those in Disney to their place........

We called Mears and took a taxi van from Old key west to US / IOA...average fare was $34 (plus tip) each way...there's 6 of us so I think its cheaper than shuttle bus at $19 pp...

Since we already have a sticky on this subject, I'm going to merge this thread into the other one.

This thread should answer any questions you have.

Hard Rock Live

If I'm going to a concert at HR live, do I just request to be taken to citywalk or where should I tell the taxi to drop me off?

We just did a cab from Coronado Springs to Universal. It was $40 each way. So $90 total with tips. Cabs were sitting in front of our resort and they take credit cards.

There's a central drop off area for both Universal parks and CityWalk. Just ask the driver to drop you there and then head up the escalators to the moving sidewalks.

Mears and a wheelchair?

How does it work with Mears if you have a wheelchair? And does anybody know how much a taxi to US would cost from Pop century, just as an option. Thanks!

Best way to get from Port Orleans French Quarter to Harry Porter without having a vechicle while on vacation. 2 adults and 2 kids.. the safest and cheapest

the Mears shuttle from your motherland resort to UO would be $19 per adult and $16 for children.

these are round trip amounts.


taxi would be about $40 each way.

Mears shuttle would be cheapest.

you sign up for the pick up at the hotel lobby concierge desk the night before.
you list the pick up time but you might have a few stops at the other motherland resorts before you hit the road to the darkside.

you can set up the return time in advance or call about 3 hours prior for when you want the return shuttle to take you back to the motherland resort.
