You walk. Both parks and city walk are all connected at Universal. It only takes five minutes or so to walk from USF to IOA.

They're basically right next to each other. The Hard Rock Cafe and NBA City restaurants separate the two gates. Won't take you more than a couple minutes to walk between the two.

Ya, it is under 5 minutes. The two parks are adjacent.

Once you are in the parks, both Universal and Islands of Adventure together with City Walk are all right there together kind of like one huge park. City Walk is in the middle kind of seperating the 2. Also, I have never used it but I think there is a short cut from Universal to IOA as well, so you don't have to walk past City Walk, some of the vets may chime in on about that, maybe its just through the Hard Rock area? Not sure, but either way short walk.

Yep, if you walk past Despicable Me, toward the Blue Man Group theater, you can exit next to Hard Rock...but honeslty unless the park is really crowded I don't know if it saves you much time

Picture the resorts as a 'V' with a themepark at each of the top points of the v and Citywalk and the garage at the bottom. There is a map on the Universal Orlando website.

It's an easy stroll between the two as others have said.
