Bus Service – Walt Disney World’s fleet of buses provide visitors with complimentary transportation across the resort. The Disney Bus Service. The usage of Walt Disney World’s vast bus fleet is complimentary for all guests on WDW property. All of the buses are wheelchair accessible.
- Four amusement parks
- Disneyland Resort
- Wide World of Sports on ESPN
Between the Contemporary Resort and the MK Entrance Resort Service is the Magic Kingdom Bus Station. With a few exceptions, each Disney Resort provides bus service to each of the four theme parks. Along the “spoke” portion of the system, buses travel back and forth between two points. Other forms of transportation are available at resorts without bus service to specific parks.
- As they have monorail or watercraft connection to the Magic Kingdom, Magic Kingdom Monorail Resorts and Fort Wilderness Campground do not provide bus service.
- Instead of bus transportation to Epcot or Hollywood Studios, the Deluxe Epcot Area Resorts provide watercraft service.
At each Disney Resort, bus transportation to Disney Springs is available. Generally, you cannot ride Disney’s resort-to-resort shuttles. To get a bus to another Disney Resort, you must take a bus to one of the theme parks or Disney Springs. While they are extremely restricted, there are a few one-way exceptions that travel between Disney Resorts.
- However, there are more convenient ways to get between the resorts in question, given their near proximity.
- Even while there is a one-way flow around the circle on three bus lines and a link between two hotels in the other direction on another route, it is more faster and quicker to walk or use the watercraft service between all of the Deluxe Epcot Area Resorts.
Use ride-hailing services such as Uber, Lyft, or Minnie Vans if you wish to move between resorts. Wait Time Boards with My Disney Experience App – Currently, this feature is unavailable. The electronic wait time boards and bus wait times on the My Disney Experience app are an excellent feature provided at Disney Resorts.
Wait Time Boards – At all Disney Resort bus stations, there are monitors displaying the next arrival time for each destination. Each theme park, Disney Springs, and Water Park will have the arrival time of the following bus. To keep these times as accurate as feasible in light of traffic/bus movement, these times will be modified as necessary.
My Disney Experience App – The App will display the wait times in the same manner as the resort’s wait time boards. This information is extremely useful if you need to hurry to the bus stop immediately or have 20 minutes to kill in your accommodation, restaurant, or gift store.
Again, the app is limited to your own resort, but you may view the wait time boards at any resort (for dinner or otherwise). My Disney Experience Mobile Application – Bus Wait Times There are no wait time boards in Disney parks or Disney Springs. As previously said, the application does not function there either.
Amusement Park Service Each theme park has bus lines that serve all Disney Resorts, the other three theme parks, Disney Springs, and the water parks. Service for Disney Springs – Typhoon Lagoon At each Disney Resort, a bus route to Disney Springs is accessible.
- Morning buses stop at Typhoon Lagoon before arriving at Disney Springs.
- After stopping at Disney Springs, buses stop at Typhoon Lagoon between 11 a.m.
- And 2 p.m.
- Epcot is the only bus stop serving Typhoon Lagoon after 2 p.m.
- Buses to the theme parks are not available in Disney Springs.
- People were parking for free in Disney Springs and then taking the bus to the theme parks to avoid paying for parking at the theme parks.
Wide World of Sports on ESPN Bus service is available between ESPN Wide World of Sports and the three All-Star Resorts, Pop Century, and Caribbean Beach Resorts. This is due to the fact that they are the hotels where young athletes and their families stay while participating at ESPN.

How many Disney buses does Florida have?
Disney Transport’s fleet includes Nova Bus LFS, Gillig Low Floor, and New Flyer XD60 Xcelsior bus types. They have roughly 350 buses in their fleet, and have ordered an additional 50 Gillig buses as of 2014, bringing their total number of buses to 400.
This is an increase from the 319 buses it had in 2012 and the roughly 289 it had in the years previous. Some buses have received a new red-and-gray or red-and-white color scheme with a new “Disney Transport” emblem since 2013, and additional vehicles will be renovated in the future years. In the past, buses were white with a red “Disney” emblem and the term “Transport” in yellow-on-purple letters next to the logo.
Disney Transport has been adding new Gillig buses to its fleet, and in 2014, as part of a trial program to enhance capacity on specific routes, it deployed new articulated New Flyer XD60 Xcelsior buses. All Disney Transport buses operate on R50 Biodiesel, a cleaner renewable diesel fuel, and in 2013 the company began testing all-electric buses on its routes.
What time does the Disney World bus stop?
