    We will be staying near the Nickelodeon hotel near 536 and 535 intersection. We will be visiting US/IOA on Friday Oct 31 and Sat. Nov 1. If we head out around 8:00am which route would be the best with traffic? I-4, International to Universal Blvd, or Turkey Lake? Or is there a combination of these that will work to avoid traffic?

    I am not from Orando but I think your best bet would be Turkey Lake cause if not mistaking it turns into Universal Blvd and is not as busy as I-4 and you might want to think about heading out earlier than 8 am espcially on nov 1st cause it is a weekend and lines for parkng will be very long as I am sure others will tell you .

    The best route to avoid traffic is Apopka-Vineland Road (under I-4) and make a right onto Palm Parkway which turns into Turkey Lake Road. Follow TLR all the way to Universal. You won't have to deal with I-4 or International Drive at all.

    This is the route we always take, only coming from Universal, never any traffic on it.
