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.
