Transportation Around Disney World
Transportation inside and around Disneyworld Disney World Transportation
There is a variety of transportation options available for those traveling to
the Walt Disney World Resort. Also, several modes of transport are available for
visitors to traverse the 47 square miles the resort covers. Those staying at one
of the hotels situated on the grounds will have the easiest and most direct
transportation options available, although many off-resort hotels do offer
regular shuttle service to and from the park.
Disney’s Magical Express Transportation takes individuals staying at select Walt
Disney World Resort hotels from Orlando International Airport directly to their
hotel. This is a complimentary service. Luggage for domestic travelers arriving
between 5 a.m. and 10 p.m. is delivered directly to guest rooms.
LYNX offers public bus service in the greater Orlando, Fla., region. Buses
serving Disney World include the 50, 56, 111, 300, 301, 302, 303, 304, 305 and
306 routes. The 50 bus transports riders from downtown Orlando. The 56 bus
travels from Osceola Square Mall. The 111 bus takes just over an hour to travel
from Orlando International Airport to Disney World. The other seven routes offer
limited service and are intended more for commuters.
The monorail system in Disney World is one of the best in the world. Twelve
trains are operated on three routes over 15 miles of track. The Express service
bypasses stops on its way directly from the Transportation and Ticket Center to
the Magic Kingdom. The Resort route takes the same path, but also stops at
Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Disney’s Polynesian Resort and Disney’s Grand
Floridian Resort and Spa. A separate spur takes passengers from the
Transportation and Ticket Center to Epcot.
Disney offers direct bus service from resort hotels to attractions that are not
accessible via a short walk or a monorail ride. Service is also available
between attractions that are not otherwise accessible to each other.
