    Has anyone used the 1 Day/2 Park Pass with Shuttle service. Apparently there is a special ticket that you can buy for Universal Studio that will send a shuttle to your resort at Disneyworld, pick you up and take you to Universal Studios and then return you to your resort when you are finished? If you have who have you purchased these special tickets through?

    I've used it and it worked wonderfully. Not only did we get picked up right on time, but we were also allowed to change our drop-off point to a different Disney hotel than the pick-up. I got the tickets through wdwinfo, the sponsors of this board. Here's the link: http://www.wdwinfo.com/universal/parkinfo/tickets.html#.

    Thanks very much for your help. It is always reassuring to hear from someone that this ticket has worked out well.

    Just make sure you print everything and bring it with you. I had to run back up to the room because I'd forgotten one of the pages. The driver was very nice about it, though.

    On a recent podcast, they mentioned timed entry tickets for WWHP. I'm not sure how it works, but I would make sure to get there early, to get a good entry time.

    It's more than an exhibit (although the traveling one was awesome!) it's a whole land, with attractions, restaurants, and shops. Very well done, and very worth the money.

    We also used these tickets and Mears shuttle service a couple weeks ago. No problems, whatsoever.

    And yes, do yourself a favor and print out everything they send you, and bring it with you. You'll need the voucher for the shuttle and the number you are given to print out your park tickets at the Universal kiosks. I think I also needed the credit card that I used to pay for everything to insert in the ticket machine.

    this did look really attractive but does anyone know if you can do more than 1 day? 2 parks in 1 day, first time to US has to be impossible!:scared1: I'd like to have 2 days with p/u at BLT, so we can see both US parks. Has anyone done > 1 day? Cost?

    I've been tempted to do this, but we've never been to Universal before. We're going just for one day this time (a Saturday in May), especially for WWHoP. I'm not sure we'll have time for the Studios.

    What do you experts think? Is one day/two parks worth it for us?

    WWoHP is small - just 3 rides, but you'll probably spend quite a bit of time on line. We were there from about 10 to 6 (we stayed for the Macy's Parade in Universal Studios) and could have spent more time in both parks. If you've only got one day, I would check out the maps on-line before you get there and mark out the must-do attractions. I LOVED both Forbidden Journey and Dueling Dragons, but, having seen the merchandise, wouldn't bother with the shops next time.

    My dd and I did the shuttle/park pass deal last summer. And it worked out very well. We didn't do any of the really big coasters at IoA, so we were able to do all we wanted to do. We arrived about 9:15 and left at 4:15.
    In Dec, my friend and I decided to leave BWV and spend a night at RPR, and then have two days at US/IoA. We both have APs, so passes weren't an option and we got a great AP rate at the hotel. We took the Mears shuttle ($19 pp r/t) on Wednesday morning, about 8:15. The next day, Thursday, we left US/IoA around 3:30, via Mears shuttle.

    I guess you could book it twice...but there isn't an option for a two day, with shuttles, option.

    There are three different prices for one day at Universal.

    The regular one park one day ticket is $82.00 plus tax.

    The park to park one day two park ticket is $112.00 plus tax.

    The park to park one day two park ticket with transfers is $114.99 plus tax.

    Park to park tickets are like Disney tickets with park hopping.

    You can go for less than the $114.99 but you will have to figure in parking which is $15.00/day. Getting the tickets with transfers is easiest because someone else is driving.

    I'm having a small problem related to this and was hoping you guys could help.

    I'm considering adding a Universal day to my next Disney trip, but my DD will be 1 month shy of 3. Can she ride the shuttle without a carseat? I know she'll be riding the Disney buses with no car seat, but wasn't sure about the Mears shuttle. I can't take a carseat with me onto the Mears Shuttle...what would I do with the carseat while I was in the park?

    Any help or experience anyone could provide with this problem would be fantastic.
