    We are staying at a Disney resort and for 2 days, we wanted to go to universal studios. Are the taxis expensive? Or is there another way of getting over there: shuttle, bus, etc.

    I've heard mixed things about Mears transporation- like set drop off and pick ups times (which for some may not be a big deal but I don't want that) and depending on how many are in your family, a taxi can be better.

    I read quite a bit of threads over in the Universal threads and decided for us a taxi would be better- it's aprox $35 one way. Where as Mears is $18 a person with set times throughout the day or waiting. Universal (from what Ive read in the other threads) has taxis lined up to take home outside the entrance. Which for me is more appealing.

    It also depends if you are doing more than 1 of the Universal parks that day. We are only doing 1 park so we weren't interested in the DU package (our 1 day 1 park tix are cheaper). However the DU package is a good deal! Just not for us.

    We have done both Mears and the taxi and for us, the taxi was much easier. You do have to schedule the Mears time, and with the taxi (at Universal and Sea World) they are lined up to take you back to Disney. Hope this helps.
