    I have some anxiety issues and I'm trying to avoid riding the monorail or the ferry at Magic Kingdom Orlando. Is there any other way to get to the park entrance? if not how long is the ferry ride from the parking lot to the park entrance?

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Edgardo! How exciting that you're planning a trip to Walt Disney World Resort this week. I'm also the kind of person who wants to know every single detail of each step of my journey when I'm traveling, so let's chat about what your transportation options will be when you're going between the Transportation and Ticket Center and Magic Kingdom Park.

    For the most part, the only way to get to Magic Kingdom Park from the Transportation and Ticket Center is by using the monorail or the ferry boat. On very busy days you may find some buses there that are also making the trip but it doesn't happen very often so it's not a guarantee. The ferry boat is my preferred method of transportation because I love the breezy, relaxing ride and it only takes about 10 minutes. It's never too crowded so there's plenty of room to move around and breathe. You also have the option of using Minnie Van Service, because it's the only ride service that can drop you off right at the gates of Magic Kingdom Park. Using the Lyft app, you can call a Minnie Van to come to get you from anywhere on Walt Disney World Resort property and have them come pick you up for a private ride. You won't have to worry about using the ferry or the monorail because you'll be able to bypass the Transportation and Ticket Center and be dropped off right at the bus stop at Magic Kingdom Park. That might be a great option for you to consider when you're on vacation this week!

    Have a magical day, Edgardo!
