Book your stay at the Sapphire Falls Resort in Orlando
All of the Universal Resorts offer complimentary transportation to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, but there is just something about getting on a boat and floating down the canal to get to your destination. The water taxi is something special and feels like a ride in itself each time you make a trip. If the weather is bad, the water taxi might not be running. During these times, you will need to catch the Universal Bus Service.
