Disney World Transportation Options

Disney World is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, attracting millions of visitors each year. With four theme parks, two water parks, and numerous resorts, it can be overwhelming to navigate through all the different Disney World transportation options available.

EPCOT this Spring

Fortunately, Disney World has a comprehensive transportation system that makes getting around the various areas of the resort a breeze.

When you stay at a Disney Resort, you can choose from buses, monorails, boats and a skyliner system to get you where you want to go.

Disney World Transportation Options


Disney World Monorail 

The Disney World Monorail System has stops in Magic Kingdom Park and at the Transportation & Ticket Center (where you can take a transfer to Epcot). It only stops at three Disney World Resorts:

Disney Bus Transportation

Disney World Bus Line

One of the most utilized of all Disney transportation services is the Disney Bus Line.

All Disney Resorts provide bus service and when you check-in, you will be given a map showing you where the closest bus stop is to your room.

Buses run about every 20 minutes, so if you miss one, there will be another one coming soon enough.

You will be glad to know that bus stops are clearly marked and the bus will display its destination on both the front and side display. If you have any questions, you can always ask the bus driver.

They are just as nice as any cast member and want your trip to be a great one!

Disney buses will drop you off at the front entrance of the park at the bus terminal.

You will pick up the bus at the same location at the end of your day at the park.

Buses go to more than one resort, so don’t be confused if your bus stops several times before getting to your end destination.

No luggage or alcohol is permitted on the bus, but strollers are fine. Just be sure to close them before boarding.
