Visiting Universal Orlando is a lot of fun for the whole family. If you plan to book at one of the Hotels near Universal Studios Orlando with Free Shuttle Service, you not only get dropped off and Universal Studios but it also covers your transportation to Islands of Adventure and City Walk. If you have been to Universal before, you already know that all three of these Attractions connect to each other so it makes sense that one Shuttle can take care of getting you to all of these locations at once.
The most important thing to consider when booking your stay is to determine how you want to get to the Parks each day. If you stay at one of the Universal Orlando Properties, the transportation to the Theme Parks is included and you have the option of taking the Shuttle Bus or the Water Taxi service. If you stay at one of the off-site hotels (not owned or run by Universal), you can still find a place with Shuttle service but often, there is an additional fee to provide this transportation. This is something you want to consider when pricing out the different options available during your trip.

Non-Universal Owned Hotels with Shuttle Service to Universal Orlando
There are plenty of options available if you would rather stay at a Hotel or Resort off of the Universal Property that still have Shuttle service available to the Parks. Many times when you stay at one of these locations, the Shuttle service is not as frequent and you have to let them know a day in advance, but they do offer this service for their guests. Some of the Hotels offer this as a Free Amenity while others will include this in the Resort Fee. There are still others that have you pay for the Transportation on a daily basis per guest. It is great that these are available but be sure you figure this in to your overall trip budget. Additional costs like these can really add up.
