Pre-cruise transportation?

This is further to an earlier thread. Pre-cruise, would it make any sense to take a cab from our hotel at Universal Orlando to either one of the WDW hotels, or back to MCO, so that we could use DCL transportation to PC? Or should we take a limo from Universal Orlando to PC? (We aren't going to have a rental car). We will be taking DCL transport back to MCO after the cruise.

I would think, get a service straight to the port. One of the big benefits of the DCL transport from WDW is that they collect your luggage from the rooms and deliver it to the ship for you. Obviously you could not take advantage of this.

I don't think you can use DCL transportation from a WDW resort unless you are staying at the resort.

As to taking the cab to MDO and then DCL transport, you'd need to find out how much the cab will cost you. DCL transportation costs $35 per person each way between MCO/port.

Depending on how many people in your group, private transportation could be cheaper. I'd do a car service from Universal to the port because it would just be easier than trying to transfer back to the airport and getting your luggage to the DCL bus. With a private car, you just pull into the terminal and drop your luggage with the porters, super easy.

OP here again. A few years ago we used DCL transportation from a WDW hotel when we stayed at one of the Hotel Plaza Blvd. hotels. We grabbed a cab to a WDW hotel, and hung out in the lobby with all our luggage and other passengers taking DCL transportation. Our luggage was put on the bus with the luggage of other passengers. Of course, we let DCL know where we were getting on the bus, as well as paying for the DCL transfers.
