How to Get Around
You have a number of options available, depending on your preference and budget.
The most popular choice by far is car rental; the roads are excellent and theme parks and other attractions are well sign posted with great parking. There are lots of car rentals at the airport and there is also a free shuttle bus to more a little further away, usually better priced. Please remember that, if you’re from outside the US you’ll need an International Driving Licence. You’ll also need small change for toll roads (average $2). You need to pay for gas and the airport gas prices are higher than normal.
You’ll find public transport a convenient and cheap option. The main Central Florida bus system is called the LYNX bus.
This is a bus service but they look like tram cars and these are a great way of traveling between theme parks. Two routes service International Drive and Universal Boulevard. The fare is $1.25 for adults, 25¢ for seniors and children under 12 ride free.
Orlando has lots of metered taxis starting rate of $2.23 and then $1.76 per kilometre rate. To give you an idea, a journey from Orlando International Airport to the Disney World Resort, would be around $60. Uber is also available in Orlando.
There are cheap shuttles which run from the airport to downtown Orlando and also to most major tourist attractions. If you’re staying with usat Encore Resort there are also several daily, complimentary shuttles to and from Walt Disney World.
