Bus Transportation

If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotels can take advantage of complimentary bus service to and from all 4 theme parks, Disney Resort hotels and the Disney Springs Area.

The buses are air conditioned and can be crowded at times. You will not always get a seat and they run about every 20 min. After the fireworks be prepared to wait. They are air-conditioned and a free easy option. Strollers have to be closed so be prepared to empty and close quickly. Do not have loose items stored below.
