Getting Around at WDW

Detailed parking info here.

Bus

Bus is the most common form of transportation at Disney World. Disney World resort buses are the main way guests are transported around the property. 

Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Disney Springs, and resort hotels all have bus terminals. 

Before reaching the bus terminal at the theme parks or Disney Springs there are boards listing all resorts and other bus route options. The other bus route options might include transportation to Disney Springs or from one theme park to another. Each destination will have a number, you will go to the numbered terminal matching your destination, and that’s it! Of course there are numerous signs and cast members around to help too!
