Major highways include Interstate 4, the Florida Turnpike, Highway 528 (Bee Line Expressway), Highway 408 (East-West Expressway) and Highway 417 (Central Florida Greeneway).

Bus Shuttle Service
Maingate Transportation provides daily shuttle service serving Emerald Island Resort with 2 morning pick-ups and 2 evening return runs that are at scheduled times. These runs are shared with other guests from the resort. Pricing per round trip for this service is as follows:

Disney World: $11 per person
Universal Studios: $15 per person
Sea World, Discovery Cove & Aquatica : $12 per person
Wet n Wild: $15 per person
Orlando Premium Outlets: $11 per person

If you have 6 or more people, it makes sense to hire a private van since it's charged by the trip and NOT per person. This can be arranged any time of day for morning pick-up and evening return as you don't share this service with other guests. The van holds up to 14 people and the round trip costs are as follows:

Disney World: $56
Universal Studios: $80

They also provide service to and from the airport. They will have the driver waiting with a sign showing the guest's name and he will help with their luggage, etc. They charge $78 for airport pick-up and $68 for return (if they are used for pick-up as well).

In terms of food shopping, they have a minimum charge of $6 per person to drop up to 5 people off at the store. They will come back to pick them up at a specified time for another $6.

Please contact Maingate Transportation at 407-870-5553 or via their website at www.maingatetaxi.com to get more information and to arrange transportation. You can also make arrangements via the Clubhouse.

Another shuttle company that provides service from Emerald Island Resort to EPCOT/Animal Kingdom is Cool Transportation. They can be reached at 407-432-1990.
