    Sorry if there is a different thread for this as this isn’t Pop specific but does anyone know the best way to visit Universal for the day when staying at Pop? We are going to Halloween Horror Nights during our stay but we won’t have a car. I’m thinking Uber is probably our best bet?

    So I thought it would be a long time before we would be back to Pop since we recently bought DVC, but we just booked one night, June 21st! :flower1: The next day we'll be moving to AKL so we won't be there long but it'll be nice to be back even for just one night. We're not heading down til late afternoon, so I'm hoping we can get there before the pools close!

    Thank you. I didn’t know there was a difference in terms. Definitely hoping for connecting so I will make sure I use the correct wording

    Thank you. I was leaning towards 50s for the theme. But wanted to hear others opinions

    We used lyft from POP to Universal a couple of years ago and it worked out fine. I’d imagine Uber would work out just the same. Enjoy!

    I used Uber the last time I went to Universal from Disney and it's quick and easy, very straightforward in where the pickup/dropoff areas are.

    A friend used Lyft last September on 2 different days. Their charges were around $16 each way. Uber was quoting around $23 so they chose Lyft.

    Has anyone used Lyft recently from MCO to POP and how much did it cost? I get in at 6:30 pm and am thinking about using Lyft instead of DME so I get there sooner then 8:30. Also what about from POP to Vineland outlets and cost.

    Not sure of Lyft anymore since it was September 2017 but the Uber was 7-8 bucks. I just know I was talking to my friend about how we wouldn't take Lyft again cause uber wascheaper

    There’s a great thread about Uber and Lyft on the DIS Transportation board. Several people who post there are drivers and/or frequent ride share patrons. They frequently recommend checking both apps each time you want a ride, as which one has the better price can vary.
