But what if there was a more direct way? What if there was a direct (and kinda secret) way to get between all the Parks? Years ago there was such an option available: Express Transportation.
Express Transportation was an option that could be added onto a vacation for an additional fee that would help guests hop between the Parks more easily. This was a reasonably priced option and provided quick transportation that cut through the backstage area of Disney. For a single day use of the Express Transportation it cost $19 per person; a multi-day add-on was $29 per person.
The Express Transportation wasn’t just quicker than using other forms of transportation and connecting through Resorts; it also allowed you to get between the Parks without having to go through security again at each Park. Sometimes the main delay when getting between the Parks can be the long security lines. During high traffic seasons the lines can get quite long to get your bag checked, even with all the security lines open.
Express Transportation, then, had the added bonus of being the Disney World equivalent of having TSA Pre-check. You’ve already been cleared by their security and haven’t left the Parks. This was a huge time-saver for folks on top of the time saved by traveling directly from Park to Park using backstage roadways.
We wish they’d bring back Express Transportation to Disney World. It was reasonably priced and a quick way to get between all of the Parks. When Park Hopping returns to the World, we’d love to see this transportation hack come back, too!
