depending on where you hotel is located, a taxi one way could be $34-7 x 2 = $68 - 74 + gratuity.
Thank you!!! Wow, both options are pricey! I'm wondering if a 1 day car rental would be cheaper???

We usually take a MEARS shuttle. You can look them up online. You call the day before and they pick you up at your resort, bring you to Universal, and bring you back at night. You just call from the park an hour before you are ready to go back. It is under $20 per person round trip.

you have two ways to book Mears shuttle from the motherland to the darkside.


one poster gave you #1.
#2. go to the concierge desk in the hotel motherland lobby the night before you want to do the darkside.
book and pay the costs and set up a pick up time.
(you are given a choice of times)

cost is $19 per adult rt
$16 per child rt

you can pick the return time or just call the number you are given about 3 hours prior to when you want the return pick up.

plus gratuity if you wish.

taxis, depending on which hotel you are staying, can range between $34-7 one way + gratuity.


a taxi could be faster than the mears shuttle.
the TM's can help you get a taxi when you are leaving.
they will call or flag a cab for you.
there are many taxis waiting in that area each day.


the shuttle sometimes stops at other resorts before leaving the motherland for the darkside.

There's one more way. You can rent a car at Disney for a day. Depending on how many people are in your party, this may be the cheapest way. There are a few different locations onsite where you can pick up and return your car.

We have the 1 day/ 2park with transfers through Mears booked. I know it says we need to call a day ahead to arrange transportation, but if we already know that we want to go on Saturday july 6th can we call now and set it up? Can anyone who has booked this method through Dreams Unlimited Travel explain their experience? This is our 1st time using it!

Thank you!

Does anybody know the cost per person to take a shuttle between disney world and universal? And do adult cost more than children?

Are you sure that's not round trip? They quoted me $19/pp round trip.
