    Are buses at Disney World only available to resort guests? When I visit Disney World next year I will be staying in a villa off property - could I spend my morning at Disney Springs and then decide to go to a park?

    Welcome back to planDisney, Eva! Transportation all around the Walt Disney World Resort comes in so many magical forms - whether you're traveling through the skies on the Disney Skyliner or Disney Monorail System, setting sail with Disney Water Transportation, or using a classic Disney Bus, there's a way to get to your destination with ease at the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Eva, all Guests of the Walt Disney World Resort are welcome to utilize these complimentary Disney Transportation options to get around the resort area whether they are staying at a Disney Resort hotel or not. If you decide to spend your morning at Disney Springs and then head to a Theme Park, it's important to know that bus service is not available directly between these destinations. You will find bus service from Disney Springs to Disney Resort hotels during Disney Springs operating hours, so you may have to take a bus to a Disney Resort hotel and then another form of transportation to the Theme Park.

    Another transportation tip that is helpful is to use the My Disney Experience mobile app; if you tap Get Directions the app will help you to find nearby bus stops or directions to other forms of transportation. Also don't forget about the Minnie Van Service that is available between destinations within the Walt Disney World Resort area, including Disney Springs. This is a paid rideshare service powered through the Lyft app, but it offers more direct transportation connections and convenience to Guests.

    Eva, I hope this helps you to navigate your way around the resort during your visit! If you have any other questions, feel free to come on back to planDisney and let us know! We're happy to get you on the road to a magical vacation!

    Here's to miles of magic,
