How much are Taxis in Orlando?
April 13, 2016
Public transportation in Orlando is not very complete or easy to use, so many tourists have to rely on other forms of transportation. Taxi, Uber and car rental are the best options available, but some guests have a hard time making a decision between car rental and Taxis because they are unsure of what the cost will be. So we wrote this blog post to let you know what our thoughts are and give you an estimate of what taxis would cost here in Orlando.
We believe that determining that best transportation option will depend on your itinerary while in Orlando. If you’re staying with us at the Lake Buena Vista Resort Village & Spa and is basically coming to only visit the theme parks, then it might be cheaper to take a taxi or Uber sometimes since we offer complimentary shuttle transportation to the parks.
But if you plan on visiting other places like International Drive, various malls, downtown Orlando, Disney Springs and more, than hiring a car would be a safer bet as it can get really pricey to take more than one cab every day. Taking our hotel in Lake Buena Vista as a reference, here is what you can expect for taxi rates for a one-way trip and up to 4 passengers:
|DESTINATION:||1-4 PASSENGERS||5-7 PASSENGERS||8-14 PASSENGERS|
|Universal/ City Walk||$32||$38||$30|
|Wet n’ Wild:||$30||$34||$22|
|Premium Outlet (LBV)||$15||$22||$32|
|Premium Outlet (Int. Dr.)||$35||$42||$60|
The prices above are estimates only and may change without notice. If you want more information about transportation in Orlando, checkout these blog posts:

We hope this blog post helped clarify a bit how much you can possibly spend if you just rely on taking taxis while in Orlando. We definitely suggest that you try out Uber ore even rent a car if you think you’d like to explore a lot more of Orlando than just visiting the theme parks!
