Hi Heather,

Definitely compare the costs of renting vs. taxi vs. shuttle. With your party size, a taxi is probably more economical than the shuttle, and renting may be comparable.

I would arrange for a taxi in advance since you have a larger party size, but that is up to you.

My daughter and i will be staying at a Universal resort (Cabana Bay) and going to the Universal parks. But we would also like to attend a Disney park for one day, is there a shuttle available for that?

Thank you!

Hi Phyllis,

There is no free transportation between the two resorts. I would suggest you weigh the cost of renting a car versus getting a cab or shuttle. We offer some terrific discounts on car rental when you package with any of our tickets.

Keep hopping!
