Cypress Pointe Resort to Universal Directions

Hello all. 3 years ago I got these directions to head to universal from Cypress, is this still the best way to do it? Or is there another faster, easier, quicker way?

Take the back exit from Cypress Pointe. Left on to Vinings Way (right if you're exiting from Grande Villas). Turn Right on Lake St. At the stop sign turn left. Thats Palm Parkway (it runs parallel to I-4) which becomes Turkey Lake Road (no turn needed). About 5 miles later (about 7 stop lights if I'm counting right) on your right is the entrance to Universal - Hollywood Way. On a light traffic day I've made it in 8 minutes. But usually you'll miss a light or two so figure 12-15 minutes. it is a direct shot and except for the intersection at Turkey Lake and Sand Lake Rd traffic is usually very light on the whole route.

That's the route that I'd take from Cypress Pointe.

That's the one we used going there last week as well, but we couldn't find where to exit to go back to Turkey Lake Road!

You REALLY have to watch where you came from on leaving as it is so easy to et turned around in the parking area & the various exits. Despite our now hundreds of trips there we can still get confused about which exit we're at & end up driving all around that huge complex.

If you end up NOT being able to find Hollywood Way on your way out, because the exits from the parking garages are not in the same place as where you enter to park, just look for the I-4 West signs. Take I-4 West to exit 68 (it's about 6 miles or so), turn right onto SR-535 and continue about 3/4 of a mile, then turn right onto Vinning Way where Cypress Pointe will be just ahead on the left.
