One of the best parts about staying in a Walt Disney World resort is the provided transportation!
Here’s our ranking of the WDW transportation systems!
But don’t sleep on the buses! They are awesome in their own right. For starters, they are the only form of free transportation that can get you to every park, water park, and Disney Springs from every resort.
Additionally, Disney buses have been getting makeovers! From awesome character photos on the outside to wifi and outlets to charge your phone on the inside, buses are becoming even MORE convenient! Sometimes simple is still the best, ya know?
We gotta admit, Disney’s newest mode of transpo has stolen our hearts! We had a lot of questions before hopping aboard the Most Magical Flight on Earth, but we LOVE it!
While we don’t recommend riding if you’ve got a fear of heights, this is a super fun and quick way to travel (most of the time). And it’s really not that hot (one of our concerns considering its not air conditioned)!
The main hub for the Skyliner is at Caribbean Beach. From there you can head to Art of Animation / Pop Century, Hollywood Studios, (the soon to open) Riviera Resort, and Epcot’s International Gateway! It’s super easy and fast, so even if you have to transfer to get from Point A to Point B, it should be quick!
Another reason we love the Skyliner is that it’s easy for strollers and wheelchairs/ECVs to load. They have their own line, and you just roll right on board! Your gondola will then swing in queue with the rest of them, and you’re on your way!
We highly recommend taking a spin on the Disney Skyliner during your next Disney stay — even if you’re not staying at a Skyliner resort. The views are so unbelievable, it’s basically an attraction in itself!
Of course, this OG Disney Classic had to be #1 on our list! Riding the Monorail isn’t only a great way to get to Magic Kingdom, it’s basically a Disney Rite of Passage!
Three resorts own the elite title of being “Monorail resorts” — Grand Floridian, Polynesian, and Contemporary — meaning they have Monorail access directly to Magic Kingdom. You can also hop off at the Transportation and Ticket Center, where you can transfer to the Epcot monorail!
But don’t worry — you don’t have to be staying at a Disney resort to take the Monorail. Most guests ride the monorail after they park at the Transportation and Ticket Center and need a ride to the Kingdom! And anyone is free to ride between Epcot and Magic Kingdom.
Riding on a Monorail is just one of those quintessential Disney World things you gotta do. We don’t really have anything else to say about it, except “por favor manténgase alejado de las puertas.”
