I doubt it. They will shuttle you to a WDW destination, but not all the way to MCO. If are leaving from your WDW resort you should be able to take DME. Or just change the return area to MCO and drive yourself there.

If you have further questions, you may want to start a fresh thread on the regular trans board. This thread is primarily for issues getting to US/IoA from WDW.

Cool

I know Mears is $20 PP fpr RT from Disney but what if I do one way to HRH then the next am to the airport would it be the same or just a bit more? How much is Taxi to MCO from HRH? We are going on the Dream.

How do you purchase the DU deal for $120 and is that tax included?

I received an e-mail from Julie at Dreams Unlimited:

Thanks for your interest in Dreams Unlimited Travel.
The Universal 2 day/2 park ticket does include two days of transportation to and from Universal Studios/Islands of Adventure. The days do not have to be consecutive, but the second day must be used within 14 days of the first day of use.

Hope this helps clarify some ???s

DU now has a pop-up window with additional information concerning the US tickets and shuttle transfers:

UNIVERSAL ORLANDO
2-DAY/2-PARK WITH ROUNDTRIP TRANSFERS
ORDER ONLINE TODAY!!

You receive a 2-Day/2-Park experience with transportation to Universal Orlando from your Disney Area Hotel.

* Includes roundtrip transfers to Universal Orlando Resort from Disney Area Hotels, including the Official Disney World Resort Hotels.
* Two (2) day admission to Universal Studios Florida and Universalís Islands of Adventure
* This special offer is only available for advance purchase!

Transfers provided by Mears Transportation

Transfer Schedule:

To Universal Orlando Resort: This service is available 24-hours a day except between the hours of 10:00am and 3:00pm. Pick-up time will be determined by calling Mears Transportation at least 24-hours in advance to arrange your pick-up time from the hotel.

From Universal Orlando Resort: Pick-up time with Mears can be arranged when making your initial reservation or by calling Mears from the parks a minimum of 90 minutes prior to your desired pick-up time.

Length of Transfer: Varies by hotel; however approximately 30 minutes each way.

Documentation Instructions: You will receive an Electronic transfer coupon with this purchase. You must present a valid photo ID with your transfer coupon at the time of pick-up from your hotel.

Additional Information: Valid hotels for this shuttle are located in the Lake Buena Vista, Walt Disney World and Hwy. 192W area.

RESTRICTIONS:

* Your ticket may not be copied, transferred, or resold
* Tickets are non-refundable

Electronic Pickup Option

This provides a fast and secure way to collect your online ticket purchase. Electronic Ticketing Machines are conveniently located near the front gate of each theme park. Swipe the credit card used during your online purchase (for verification only). Enter the confirmation number provided on your email receipt. Print out your tickets. Tickets can also be picked up at Guest Services, but only by the person who's name the tickets are under. $1.99 per ticket processing fee

ALSO: When you order your tickets/transfers, the site asks for your travel arrival date. Julie from DU emailed this to me-
'The tickets do not expire until 14 days after the first day of entry into the park. The transfer vouchers have a seven day window, so your arrival date needs to be as close as possible to the actual day you will go to Universal.'

Hope this helps others with planning

I dont know what to do. We are going to Universal for one day from Pop. We will have our 2 year old with us(no carseat). I was going to book the DU deal but we may get a bus or we could get a van. I called Mears and they said if we are sent a van she still doesnt need to be in a carseat(called back again just to make sure). I am not comfortable with that. Thought about a rental but then would still need a carseat and we are using Cares on the plane.

You will most likely get a bus going there, and a van coming back. If you are using the Cares on the plane, why not in the van??? There is no way to use a car seat or the Cares on a bus.

Your only alternative is to rent a car with a car seat. Or hire a car service that also provides a car seat.

I dont think you are supposed to use Cares in any vehicle. I may consider bringing her on Mears. I wonder if they will allow me to seat belt her in(would that even be safe?) or make me hold her.

You need to let us know where you are going to. Most fares to either US/IoA or WDW resorts, from MCO are about $60 one way. I'm not sure exactly what info you need.

We purchased the 1 day/2 park pass with Mears Transportation and since the parks close at 6pm and 7pm that night will we be able to go to Citywalk and still count on Mears Transporation to bring us back to Pop a few hours after US/IOA close?
