Navigating The Walt Disney World Bus System


In this edition of Navigating Walt Disney World Resort we’re going to take a look at the most widely used mode of transportation – the resort bus.

Where The Busses Available?

Each of the owned and operated Walt Disney World Resorts as well as the Walt Disney Swan and Dolphin resorts benefit from having a dedicated bus system.

The Walt Disney World bus service runs from each of the resorts to the four theme parks, two water parks and Disney Springs.

The bus system also runs from theme park to theme park as well.

The third party hotels on property, Four Seasons and Hotel Boulevard, offer their own separate bus service.

When Do The Busses Run?

Busses to theme parks will begin 45 minutes prior to park opening and run to 2 hours after park closing. The last bus will leave your resort 1 hour prior to park closing.

Resort bus stops offer a monitor to let you know the estimated arrival of the next bus, on a 20 minute interval. The My Disney Experience app can also show next estimated bus arrival while at your resort.

Busses to Disney Springs begin 45 minutes before opening and run until 2:00AM. The last bus will leave your resort at 1:00AM.

A direct bus from any theme park can be taken to Disney Springs beginning at 4:00PM until 11:00PM or 2 hours after that theme park closes, which ever is earlier.

Wheelchairs and ECVs are accommodated.

Helpful Tips

  • The bus system is a great way to get between resorts. All you have to do is transfer at any theme park or Disney Springs.
  • Check your resort information for transportation to the two water parks.
  • Use the Blizzard Beach bus to get to Disney’s Winter Summerland Mini Golf.
  • Use the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin bus to get to Fantasia Gardens Mini Golf.
