Dockside Inn and Suites Location
The Dockside Inn and Suites is located across Interstate-4 from Universal Orlando’s main campus So there’s no boat transportation available from the resort and it is not possible to walk to the theme parks etc. (it is technically possible to walk, but it 1.15 miles on sidewalks along surface streets to get to the Universal Bus Station)
The Endless Summer Resorts sit on the property that used to be Orlando’s big water park, Wet ‘n Wild. Dockside Inn and Suites is on the site of the parking lot, while Surfside Inn and Suites is where the water park used to be. Universal purchased the property years ago. All of the specialty drinks at the Pool Bars are named after Wet ‘n Wild’s slides.
Dockside Inn and Suites Transportation
Bus transportation is available to Universal CityWalk’s Bus Depot where you can walk to the parks or transfer to buses bound for all other Universal Orlando destinations.
