When planning your Walt Disney World vacation, one question that might come up is, “How will we get around Disney World?” I know it can be a challenge sometimes, but Disney World Transportation has the answers for you!
If you’re staying at a WDW Resort (which I highly recommend, as it has comes with many perks!), then you have a free ride from Orlando Airport to your Resort via Disney’s Magical Express, a bus and luggage service that brings your and your bags from the airport to your resort and back again at the end of your stay.
Once you’re at WDW, there are several ways to make it from point A to point B:
Bus – this is one of the more common modes of transit at WDW (and the one I am most familiar with, since it’s the only way to get from any of the Value Resorts to the Parks). Buses travel from all Resorts to the Theme Parks, Downtown Disney, ESPN Wide World of Sports, and the Water Parks. The buses are large and offer a lot of seating and standing room, and usually run around 15 minutes apart (or more often during high volume times). It’s definitely not a speedy way to get around, so be sure to plan for extra travel time in your schedule when utilizing the bus system.
Monorail – This is a fun way to travel, high above the ground, and you get some great views along the way! The monorail travel from the Magic Kingdom to the Grand Floridian, Polynesian, and Contemporary Resorts in a loop, and another monorail makes the trip between the Transportation and Ticket Center and Epcot, and a 3rd travels from the Transportation and Ticket Center to the Magic Kingdom. It’s a quick and convenient way to travel, and the Resort monorail gives you almost instant access to the Magic Kingdom, and what could be better than that?
