Getting Around Disney World
Pop quiz: where can you find Florida’s third largest bus fleet?
Correct answer: Disney World.
With a bus fleet that’s third in size to the cities of Miami and Jacksonville, Disney World offers resort guests complimentary transportation. Guests can forgo renting a car and take advantage of the bus service, plus get around via boats and monorails. Plus, getting to the resort from Orlando International Airport isn’t much of an issue with included motor coach transportation, including luggage transfers. So what’s there to know about a transportation system that covers an area that’s twice the size of Manhattan? Here’s the scoop.
1. All of the Disney-owned-and-operated hotels are served by the resort’s bus service. Transportation from the resorts to the four theme parks and Downtown Disney is direct, so there’s no need to make a transfer. However, to get to the water parks or the other resort hotels from your own hotel, you’ll have to make a transfer. This can be done by taking a bus from your hotel to one of the theme parks, to the Ticket and Transportation Center, or to Downtown Disney and catching another bus to your destination.
