Planning a family vacation at Disney World can be exhausting. There are so many things to organize. And missing one of those things can create a nightmare when you arrive. While many people seem to arrange their accommodations, dining, and theme park tickets alright, they almost always forget about transportation. And let me tell you, transportation at Disney is a very important part of any Disney vacation. Today, I am sharing the do’s and don’ts for transportation at Disney World, so you can see why planning ahead and being prepared is so important.
When you plan ahead for your transportation at Disney World, you will avoid the headaches you may get, especially during peak times. It is best to know which transportation options are available for the resort you are staying at. Knowing the schedule for each option is also a good idea.
Every day, approximately one hundred thousand people visit the Disney World theme parks. And most of those people utilize the park’s transportation system. Therefore, it is best to plan for delays. Do not expect to leave your resort twenty minutes before you want to be on a certain ride and arrive at that ride on time.
Planning ahead and making reservations for restaurants, tours, and character meals is always a good thing. However, you must keep your transportation options in mind when you are making your reservations. It is best to remember that transportation by bus between resorts is not available. The monorail and boat ride options between those resorts are limited as well. It is best to consider your transportation first and then make your reservations once you have a plan in place.
And for those tours, and other reservations, I would honestly avoid using Disney transportation if possible. Driving your own car and getting free parking at any theme park is an option. Another option is to utilize a ride-sharing app like Uber or Lyft. These options will allow you to arrive where you need to be on time, so you don’t miss out on any of the fun.
It may seem silly to arrive at the bus stop one hour in advance, especially since the buses come every twenty to twenty-five minutes. But lines for those buses form early. It may be a couple of buses before you can actually board the bus. By arriving early, you will be ahead of the game instead of potentially being an hour behind if you were to arrive and couldn’t get on the bus right away.
The buses are one of the most popular modes of transportation at Disney. So, it is best to avoid them whenever you can. If you are staying at a resort that offers the boat, monorail, or Disney Skyliner service, I recommend utilizing those transportation options instead.
The buses to Disney Springs do not depart from any of the Disney theme parks. Therefore, you must remember that you must always first travel to a resort to catch the bus to Disney Springs.
Walking is a must throughout the theme parks at Disney World, so why would I be telling you to walk even more?? Well, walking can save you quite a bit of time depending on where you want to go. There are times when you can walk to your destination in less than thirty minutes instead of waiting for forty-five minutes or an hour to take the bus.
So many visitors think the park closes once the fireworks are finished for the night. Most of the time, the park stays open for at least an additional hour. This is an excellent time to go on another ride or two, while everyone else is waiting in line for the bus, boat, or monorail. All the transportation at Disney continues for an hour after closing time, so you will have plenty of time to get back to your resort.
These are the top do’s and don’ts for transportation at Disney World for your family vacation. I can help you avoid many of the don’ts while I am planning your Disney vacation.
