Universal Orlando Resort Water Taxis Closing For Renovation December 1

At Universal Orlando Resort, the water taxis will be sailing into the sunset on November as the free service will be closed from December 1, but don't worry it's only for a short amount of time!

The downtime is for refurbishment to the boat docks, with the water taxis back up and running on the 7th December, 2022.

Universal Orlando Resort stated that “Water taxis will be temporarily unavailable from December 1 through December 7, 2022, due to dock renovation.”

Universal Orlando Resort also reminded guests that they may use complimentary shuttle bus transportation to Universal CityWalk for access to Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands Of Adventure.

Universal Orlando Resort's water-taxi service offers free transportation for guests between select on-site hotels (Sapphire Falls Resort, Royal Pacific Resort, Hard Rock Hotel, and Portofino Bay Hotel) and Citywalk.

Each of the hotels has its own dedicated taxi, so no extra stopping at multiple other hotels.

The water taxi service begins 30 minutes prior to Early Park Admission, and they run every 15 minutes until 2:30 am, 365 days a year.
