my husband and I are going to WDW in Dec. first week 1st through 8th.of Dec we are thinking of spending one day at Universal. first question is one day long enough if we do express pass. Second question is taxi best way to get over there or is mears?
Mears will be less expensive than a taxi, but realize it will be a lot more time consuming! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  745.7 #4 11:50AM
You could probably rent a car for one day and have it be cheaper then a cab, I'd look in to it! I have a car reserved for 15 days at 12 dollars a day, total I think is 340 for the entire time. - allieenicolee  16.1 #166 1:40PM
We usually go with mears...no problems with them so far... - islandgirl58  243.7 #26 1:48PM
1 day is plenty , it's not Disney !!!! I would use Mears over a cab !!! - skcanfield  463.7 #12 2:00PM
Thanks to everyone - Texas1112  7.6 #271 2:17PM
Haha we are doing the same thing. I priced a cab and it was like 45 bucks. - Lelundrial  410.5 #444 2:48PM
We do universal for two days just because you don't know how busy it is going to be. Now to get there we have done it many ways, if it is just the two of us my favorite is mears. Now we stay at pops and I think that is the last stop before they get on I-4 so that is good. Depending on whether anyone is going to sea world that would be the next stop but it is quick and then off to universal. We do the reservations for this right at the concerge desk in the hotel. We usually get the 830 pick up time and we call when we are ready to come back. Need to call two hours in advance. It is 19.00 round trip per person. When we go with the 8-10 of us we book a van/taxi service and we have used the same one for years and it is 40. One way. We love the convience of the pick up and drop off siteand i think it is less time them picking up the rental car. Unless we are going to use a car for 3 or more days we don't bother. Hope this helps. Enjoy! - mmddgp  355.1 #18 5:42AM
One day won't be enough. Not with Harry Potter and Transformers - IndyandMarion  1180.9 #1 8:26AM
Thanks for the advise. Hope everyone has a great day - Texas1112  7.6 #271 9:41AM
There are actually 2 different parks so if you're just going to 1 then I'd say 1 day is enough. Going to both would mean skipping lots of attractions or really powering through from open to close and that's not likely. - Westcoast  121.3 #2944 10:47AM
I recommend Islands of Adventure park over the Universal park. Universal is just a lot of shopping. IOA has quite a bit and a day was plenty for us - ariel116  74.2 #70 4:16PM
Love universal as much as islands. There is definatley more than shopping there. - mmddgp  355.1 #18 9:20PM
